Stone Manor Country Club Wedding: Eileen & Justin

When I pulled up to Stone Manor for Justin & Eileen’s wedding, two things concerned me. First, it had already started to mist and everything indicated that heavier rains were coming. Second, and far more importantly, no one was there. There was a single car in the driveway but as I searched the property, I certainly couldn’t find any evidence of it’s owner. I was terrified that I had the date wrong; I arrived on Friday and maybe it was supposed to be a Saturday wedding?  Worse, I was afraid that I had the wrong location!!! I was 30 minutes early, so I figured I had some time to get somewhere else if I could just figure out where it was I should be! :-)

Fortunately, it all worked out. Turns out that Eileen is just the most laid back bride EVER and pulled up a few moments after my panic set it. She nonchalantly walked up to her room, totally ready to pull on her dress, lace up her Chuck Taylor’s, and head out to the ceremony site to marry Justin. :-) This is by far the most relaxed wedding I’ve ever photographed – it was simply about saying vows and celebrating with friends and family.

And as for the mist… Well, first I have to say how impressed I was with Brian and his team at Stone Manor!!  They fully prepared TWO ceremony sites, one outdoors and one inside the reception tent. This allowed Eileen to make her decision at the very last second. Winds were blowing and leaves swirling as she made her way out to the ceremony site, but by some grace, rain held off not only through the ceremony but all the way through family, wedding party, and bride&groom photos. The clouds only let loose once everyone was cozy inside the reception tent.

A perfect wedding day :-)

So many great photos down here from Jay Carbonella… great friend and amazing photographer!!

I love this… heels, hose, and a beautifully tailored dress, but still willing to play.

 

 

There was some photobombing during the family session… but someone needed to tell this groomsmen that a photobomber doesn’t give himself away!!

Sugarloaf Mountain Engagement Photos: Becca and Nick

One day, Nick, who does business development and coaching for Fleet Feet Sports franchise owners, was working on-site when Becca walked in.  You know that little bell that jingles when you walk into a running shoe store?  I heard it in my mind when Becca and Nick told me this story!  I could just see Nick looking up at Becca and… cue rom-com music :-)  I didn’t quite catch what happened in that first conversation, but Nick managed to secure a running date with Becca on a local trail in Chapel Hill, NC, which led to more and more running dates, which eventually led us right here to an engagement session on Sugarloaf Mountain!  More evidence that life really can change in an instant, at the jingling of a running store bell! :-)

If you live around Frederick, MD and you recall the weather last weekend, you know that we were granted a perfect few hours in the midst of a very stormy weekend!!  We had to work hard to get this in, as Becca and Nick traveled from Chapel Hill to make it happen.  Our goal was to meet Friday, but with very rainy weather predicted, I just couldn’t let them risk the long trip.  As the weather report improved for Sunday, we threw together a plan that worked out perfectly!!  Becca and Nick left Saturday morning for Maryland and stayed with Becca’s mom Saturday night.  On my end, we packed sandwiches to eat after church, while John drove me and the kids over to Sugarloaf.  We arrived in the parking lot at almost the exact same time, and I hopped in Becca and Nick’s car while John took all the boys on a hike, where only one suffered a minor injury and all four ended up exhausted – which I call a total success :-)  I did keep Becca and Nick out WAY too long, as each location they had in mind ended up even better than the previous one!!  I just couldn’t stop!  But as it turned out, they dropped me off just moments before John and the boys made their way back down the mountain to pick me up.  We drove off with Becca and Nick on the road right behind us JUST as raindrops began sprinkling our windshields again!!!

One final word about these photos… next time I get my hair cut, I’m just going to pull up this session on my phone to show my stylist. :-)
