Marjorie & Nick – 10.17.09

If rain on your wedding day really is good luck, Marjorie and Nick are set for life. Seriously. I hope they play the lottery soon, because there sure was a lot of luck showered on them on Saturday! I have to highlight the fact, though, that neither of them ever complained about it once. Marjorie, Nick and their guests were all smiles all day, which made my job fun despite the disappointing weather! When I arrived to take a few getting ready pictures, Marjorie was calm and excited all at once, if that makes any sense.

Thank goodness for this beautiful window-lit hallway in the back of Holy Trinity church since we weren’t able to do any portraits outside. (P.S. Marjorie, you’re stunning!)

The ring bearer “pillow” made of flowers (button mums I think?) was so pretty:

Chris captured Marjorie’s entrance – if you look closely you can see streaks of raindrops!

Another one of Chris’s fantastic ceremony captures:

We braved the weather for a few quick photos at the Lincoln Memorial. And see I told you, no one was bothered by the rain and cold at all!

Once we all arrived at Tregaron for the reception, we took a few more fun pictures.

This might be my most favorite family portrait EVER:

Tregaron was so charming and cozy. Perfect! This is the smaller of the two dining rooms:

Marjorie created the design for all of the paper elements including the invitations and this menu card.

There was no shortage of sweet stuff at this wedding, and it started with the escort cards/favors that contained maple candies for each guest. Another DIY detail if I’m not mistaken!

I got to try one of these Georgetown Cupcakes and I have to tell you, I’m now a huge fan – I think this was a really fun (and portable) wedding cake alternative. It made my drive home all the more enjoyable. 🙂

More sugary treats courtesy of a candy bar:

Which everyone of all ages enjoyed!

My view of the first dance:

Chris’s view:

Marjorie’s cousin called from Afghanistan, where he is currently on tour, to wish Nick and Marjorie a happy wedding day!

Thanks to our vantage points during the toasts, Chris and I were able to capture a photo of nearly every guest at the wedding. I love the “Where’s Waldo” feel of these.

Best wishes and congratulations, Marjorie and Nick! Your wedding turned out absolutely perfect, and I’ll never forget how cheerful you both were in spite of the weather. It was truly a wonderful event to witness, and Chris and I were happy to be a part of your day!
