10-10-10 was the big wedding day this year. Symmetry is a wonderful thing. So on the 10th day, of the 10th month of the year 2010 I headed on down to Leesburg, VA to photograph Nancy & Curtis’s beautiful wedding day at Raspberry Plain.
Raspberry Plain is a gorgeous historic home with insanely wonderful gardens surrounding the property. The weather cooperated with a balmy 70+ degree day on this Sunday afternoon in October and I was able to capture some truly amazing images of these 2 incredible cuties.
I photographed an e-session for Nancy & Curtis earlier in the year and its always nice to be greeted by a guest book bearing my images (brings a smile to my face!).
Nancy got dressed and ready in the main house next to a wonderfully large window which provided me with so much light for the portraits! Curtis headed next door to the carriage house and relaxed with his fella’s waiting for the ceremony. The ceremony was brief and loving, and followed by the bride and groom exiting to the Star Wars theme from a string trio. Who doesn’t think that rocks!
After the ceremony we walked around the grounds a little to get some portraits in the glowing autumn light before heading into the reception with a Dark & Stormy in hand! – Goslings Dark Rum & Gosling Ginger Ale – This Gosling was a happy one!
One of the absolute best parts of this wedding was the Charm City Cakes (Yep, that’s right – Ace of Cakes!!!) grooms cake which was the Ark of the Covenant from Indiana Jones. This was a seriously AMAZING cake, I had to tell myself to stop photographing it or all the wedding pictures would have been of this incredible cake.
Ed Witles rocked the rest of the night away with a classic mix of oldies and the new stuff. This was by far one of my most favourite weddings all year and the first time I had photographed at Raspberry Plain. I hope I get to go back again soon.
Congrats to Nancy & Curtis – I hope you like your pics!
