Weddings before Nightfall

  • by

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.
