Bonnie and Dan had a beautiful September wedding at Rust Manor House in Leesburg Virginia. They wanted a classically beautiful, elegant wedding with a 1920s Gatsby themed twist.

I actually drove by before noticing a big white sign that said, "PETTING ZOO" and immediately screeched to a halt and busted a u-turn straight into the parking lot*.Read More
This weekend the east coast was battered by a nor-easter that pummeled us for days with several inches of rain. The threat of an ever looming hurricane just off the coast became ever present as Taylor texted me the week before exasperated about the weather and it's decision to act a fool for their wedding.Read More
