We’re sure you’ve read the first part about Maya & Josh’s wedding as well as the post about all their details, but if not go take a look, come back for more teary moments and wide smiles below!
This is one of Bill’s favorite frames that Anne captured. In fact he broke up a bit when he saw it. Powerful stuff.
More fun with props!
It turned out to be a huge hit among the wedding-dress-set. Remember these fun ones from Part 1?? Maybe not so much for the suit-wearing-set.
LOTS of laughs…
and even some tears during the toasts.
Josh’s dance with his mom was so incredibly touching. Tears flowed everywhere.
Enter the photo booth! You’ll be seeing more of Tori and Nick, the guy on the far left and girl in the red-framed glasses, next year when it’s THEIR turn. Can’t wait, you two!
Post cake-cutting smooch.
You might recognize Shannon who was a bridesmaid in Taylor & Rob’s wedding. So fun getting to see her and her beau Joe again!
Between the white, lit, balls above and the white dance floor below, we were in soft, reflected light heaven. Yum.
No way this dude was slowing down just for an ice cream cone.
Dancing around the toss bouquet? Sounds good to us!
Um. Cool! But ouch.
Congratulations, m&j!! We had SO much fun with you both and can’t wait to see you again soon!

They had a separate lounge for friends who wanted to sit and chat in a quieter area for a while.
And complete with a blue and green themed candy bar!
The cake design was inspired by gorgeous Maya’s dress.
Oh yeah, ice cream? We’re diggin’ it. Jane and her awesome team with Occasions rocked every ones socks off, as usual!
The beautiful hand-made porcelain ring bearer bowl held here by Maya & Josh (seen earlier in another use by the ring bearer ) from the always sweet Paloma’s Nest.
What a beautiful, beautiful day! Stay tuned for Part 3 coming up very soon. Trust us, you won’t want to miss some of the most crazy and fun dance moves we’ve seen in a while!

Happy, happy Friday! We have another fabulous real wedding for you today. Maya & Josh’s wedding day at one of our favorite venues, Glenview Mansion, started out with tons of grins, and just kept going. You’ll see what we mean. We’re SO happy to be sharing their wedding with you, in three parts, no less. Yup, we just couldn’t narrow our favorites down anymore. Keep coming back as we post more later today. First up, a little getting ready, first sight, portraits and the ceremony!
Also check out a post devoted just to their fab details, and another one for their reception.
If you’re ready, click here to see the entire gallery of images! The password is Maya’s maiden name and is case-sensitive. Enjoy!
a.dor.able flower girl.
We’ve had some seriously happy brides, but Maya just seemed to be shining from every cell in her being. Love.
She was rockin’ her gorgeous J.Crew dress, too!
So cute in his little bow tie. Guess he wasn’t so sure, though.
Yup, Anne LOVED the ring bearer!! Bet Caroline of the lovely Paloma’s Nest didn’t have that specific use in mind when she designed her gorgeous ring bearer bowls.
Check out this series of Maya and her dad just before he escorts her down the aisle that Anne captured. So touching.
So sweet…Josh had already seen her yet he was still overcome with emotion watching Maya walk down the aisle with her Dad. Love his best man looking on, too.
The ceremony was filled with lots of laughs…
…and tears. Love this shot Bill captured of Josh’s Mom.
We love the officiant while Maya tried getting Josh’s ring on. He seems so concerned!
Best. Kiss. 2010!
If there existed an award for most effusive grins, you two would be winning it hands down. In fact, we think we should create this award today on the spot, and you’ll be the inaugural winners of this traveling trophy. You really set the mood early on when you were both wiping away tears upon first seeing each other prior to your ceremony. And we couldn’t have had a more beautiful day for your wedding at Glenview Mansion, although it may have appeared to have been a little warm judging from the effort it took to put the ring onto Josh’s finger! Teddy would have been proud.
During the reception we don’t know if more people could have fit into your photo booth! And why not limit use of the props to just the booth when you can bring big-as-your-head sunglasses on the dance floor, right? That dance floor was packed! Everyone was having so much fun, including your intrepid photographers who braved the scrum!
We knew when we finally get to meet you both in person that you two were not only perfect for each other, but you were a perfect fit for us. Even a power outage and the wind storm of the century in Silver Spring couldn’t break us up that day. Simply put, we couldn’t wait for your wedding. We were thrilled to have been there for you and had a fantastic time with you, your family and friends. We laughed, we cried. We ate cake. Doesn’t get any better than that. We hope you love your photos as much as we do. Thanks so much for having us out and congratulations on your wonderful marriage!
Stay tuned for Parts 2 & 3 later today!

So how about this timing? We were scheduled to originally do an engagement portrait session with Jennifer & Greg down in Charlottesville for apple picking, but when the morning came, it was windy and cold–not a great time to be on top of a mountain, plus the orchard had been quite picked over thanks to the apple festival the weekend before. So we rescheduled–a week after they closed on their suburban Maryland home. Since they were busy painting and generally turning the house into their home, we thought it would be a brilliant idea to do the shoot where they’re starting their lives together. We had a fantastic time together and you can see some of the fun results below with a few of our favorites. Enjoy!
And when you’re ready to see more, click here to see the entire engagement portrait session. The password, which is case-sensitive, is Jennifer’s maiden name.
Jennifer’s mom brought over a big pot full of potted flowers and a welcoming sign embedded in the middle. So sweet!
Yup, had to do it.
Since painting had to be done anyway…
Congratulations j&g on your wonderful new home and your upcoming wedding! We’re absolutely thrilled to be a part of it and CAN’T wait for next July!!

Jennifer set Sarah & Ori’s private yihud among the gorgeous vines of the vineyard. HIGHLY recommend!
Sarah finds communion with one of the vineyard’s horses.
Sarah reacts to one of the postcard choices (below)…
Oh yeah, you know what’s coming!
This lady’s on to something. If you’ve tried these donuts, you’ll know why she’s smiling so broadly. Just love this capture by Bill!
Just in case donuts aren’t your thing. We might have to check to see if you’re an alien, but hey, the dessert table was open for business, complete with homemade pies and cookies.
Back to dancing. Shall we have a hora please?
Jangling Reinharts…what a wonderfully fun band! Book. Them. Early!
Quick break for a donut-cutting, er…smashing. Love this shot Anne captured of Sarah’s reaction to seeing the donut truck!
It starts so innocent, doesn’t it? ;-D
Forget bouquet toss, how about a tee shirt toss! WAY more fun and it’s co-ed!
People LOVE tee shirts apparently! Notice the guy in back about ready to put the smackdown on Grandma for one of those tees.
Best wishes, s&o! We were absolutely thrilled to be part of your wedding day!
