Kara & Ernie – 08.29.09

Back in August I took a lovely scenic drive up to Maryland to help Kate Triano photograph Kara and Ernie’s wedding at the Grand Lodge. After you’re done here, you should stop by Kate’s blog to see her fabulous images of the day. In the meantime, want to see a few of my own random favorites from the day? Yeah? Here you go!

I spent a few minutes with Ernie before we headed over to the ceremony. Look how excited he is to be getting married!


The details of their day were exquisite, including this bouquet. Check out the peacock feathers!

And speaking of exquisite, how gorgeous is Kara?!


Kara’s wedding ring was a family heirloom (and Ernie’s, too, if I’m not mistaken), and here they are showing the ring to Ernie’s grandmother:

Speaking of rings…

Gorgeous light, gorgeous couple!

Now if you don’t mind, I’m going to spend some time showing you those grandfabulous* (yep, I just made up that word…) details, okay?




Elegant first dance:

After the cake-cutting/feeding, I love how they’re both all “hands-off…no face-smooshing.”

*I actually Googled “grandfabulous” to see if it was anyone else’s made-up word (and because I’m just that much of a dork), and it does show up a few times in Google. BUT, it’s not defined at urbandictionary.com yet, so maybe the entry can be updated as a word to describe Kara and Ernie’s reception details!

    Wow–love those peacock feathers! Great detail shots, as always. That last shot is so fun!! Awesome wedding. Love your kiss at the altar shot–that’s a touch moment and you got a very cool angle.
