I love morning weddings; they are perfect. I love the wide-brimmed hats worn by the ladies and you can’t beat the light! If you are planning a daytime wedding with a tent I suggest finding a translucent, white tent. This will allow the light to pass through the white material perfectly. I love translucent tents! In my second year of photographing weddings I had a couple who had two tents; one white tent for eating under and another dark blue tent with star cut-outs to dance under. It was a great way to bring the illusion of night to a daytime wedding. Visit the gallery to see the spread (highlighted in The Knot’s Wedding Pages). From there you can visit a gallery with even more images.
Who needs a tent when you’ve got a mansion in Rockville, MD. Glenview Mansion to be exact. This is where my latest wedding was held. What a great place. The grounds are classic; old stone walls and stairways, beautifully manicured hedges, and a fountain. Inside there are nice, big windows and even a beautifully enclosed balcony to photograph in if it’s too wet outside. Perfect. I wish every venue had a great back-up place to photograph. But if they did, I’d get lazy. It’s all part of the challenge to make something out of nothing.
Here are a few photographs from Ann and Marlon’s wedding. Everyone had a great time in the rambling mansion; with cushy chairs, couches, even a dining room table! Plenty of space for this 160 person party. Thanks to the team from Soiree, the day went very smoothly.
