Teasers - Grace and Clayton's Wedding!

Friday, September 4th, Grace and Clay got married at Ceresville Mansion in Frederick, MD. They had perfect weather and a gorgeous setting and I loved photographing every second of it.

First sign it was going to be an awesome day: the bride wore red shoes.

Second sign it was going to be an awesome day: the bride had two dresses! Here is the one she changed into during the reception.

Grace was perfectly relaxed it seemed. It is always great to be around a bride like that.

She had 7 bridesmaids to help her get ready. And she needed it with this dress!

I thought she looked like Cinderella.

I have always wanted this shot. In fact, Grace and Clay fulfilled a lot of my "I wish I had a shot like this..." dreams. They hadn't seen each other yet!

There was great light outside for photos.

The groomsmen came out to play too! Grace wanted to show off her red shoes.

When the bride was all hidden upstairs, we brought the groom out. Did I mention that he was a Marine? I think I might have left that detail out in my earlier posts. Looks pretty sharp, huh?

The ceremony got started not long after. Grace was all smiles while her dad escorted her down the aisle.

And this! Oh my goodness I love this! He is NOT adjusting his hat, no matter what he might say in the years to come. That even made me teary eyed.

I really like this shot. The groomsmen on the right even got out of line at one point durng the ceremony to snap a shot of the bride and groom. That was a first for me. And also earned him the title of Official "That Guy" for the remainder of the wedding day. There's always one.

The kiss!

While the bridal party was getting their portraits taken, the bride and groom had arranged to have traditional Peruvian dancers to entertain the guests.

Clay was also nice enough to share with his groomsmen.

After that, they both changed into some less restrictive clothing so they could really let loose!

And then they fulfilled two more of my photos dreams. :-)
