I’m so excited to get to write about a wedding that I’ve been waiting for since the spring! In April, I had the pleasure of working with Stephanie and Tim on their engagement session, and I’ve been looking forward to being around their chemistry and charisma ever since! These two are high school sweethearts who stayed close over the years, and rekindled their romance in 2014. They absolutely radiate positivity and happiness, making each other laugh and smile constantly. So I knew their wedding would be a wonderful event — and it was!
The ceremony and reception both took place at the Chevy Chase Club in Maryland, a truly beautiful and historic venue. With is rolling lawns and stunning classic architecture, the Chevy Chase felt like the perfect place for Stephanie and Tim’s celebration — and what an elegant backdrop it made for their photos! The weather was so gorgeous (surprisingly warm for late September) and the day went off without a hitch. Stephanie and Tim had mentioned beforehand that getting to enjoy their guests was really important to them, so it was especially helpful that they were ahead of schedule. We accomplished most of the group photos before the ceremony! Afterwards, the newlyweds were able to be with their guests for the full cocktail hour. Yay!!!
Besides being ahead of schedule, I know that the loving, happy tone of the day was truly set by the bride and groom themselves. As I watched Stephanie and Tim together, I could see the type of bond that only years together can form. Theirs is a deep love between two souls, lifted and supported by the strong connection between their families and their kindhearted friends. Stephanie is clearly the world to Tim…and Tim is the world to Stephanie. The joy of the celebration just kept on going, and I was even able to photograph some of Tim’s famous dance moves amidst their 200 very excited guests! What a day this was! I wish them all the happiness in the world, and I hope you enjoy this sneak peek of their wedding!
Oh, and be sure to check out Stephanie’s delightful blog The Chaotic Kitchenette!
