Sarah and Andy, who live in New York, have planned an October wedding in Pinehurst, NC. For their engagement shoot we started out on the sidewalks of their neighborhood in Tribeca, which is located between Soho and Lower Manhattan.

I thought that the photo above really captures the essence of a NY sidewalk.

Well, more like a blizzard... we booked this wedding on Friday (February 5th) after learning that their original wedding photographer could not make it to Washington, due to the weather. In fact, all flights into DC were cancelled. So we quickly loaded our car and headed up Interstate 95 to the Westfields Marriott, which is near Dulles Airport. The heavy snow made for a very slow trip, but the warm welcome we received from the bride & groom, and their family (and the hotel staff), made the trip worthwhile.

By Saturday morning well over a foot of snow had fallen and it continued to snow all day. By Saturday night, nearby Dulles Airport had recorded 32 inches of snow.

One of the several scenic trails that the hotel kept open during the snow. If you are going to get snowed in, the Westfields Marriott is a good place to be. Here is a link to their wedddings website... Westfields Weddings

This was our 3rd wedding this winter in a major snowstorm (all 3 events with over a foot of snow). It began snowing early Saturday morning, and by 11 AM the roads were almost impassable.

Because of the snow the bride decided to have the ceremony at the same location as the reception - Sheraton Park South.
