Erin and Michael were married at 9 AM on Bolling Air Force Base in Washington. The early ceremony allowed for an 11 AM cruise down the Potomac for the reception.

The advantage of two photographers - we each capture the reaction at the same moment, from two different locations. I was in the front of the church and Corbin Harris was in the back (first photo).

The dress was handmade by her mother Libby - with silk (from India), and taffeta. The taffeta was actually purchased by her mom back when Emily was 13 years old. Here is what happened.... they once attended an estate sale when Emily was 13, and her mother noticed that they had some wonderful taffeta for sale. She asked her daughter "What would I do with all this beautiful taffeta?" Emily responded, "You can use it one day to make my wedding dress".

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
