It’s Hump Day! And a rare Wednesday that we have a wedding for you. Gotta switch it up every once in a while, you know – keep you on your toes. Or maybe keep us on our toes. Who knows? We’ll never tell. ;) Today we’re celebrating the fabulously fun wedding of Adrienne & Mike. Mike was a groomsman in Jenn & Paul’s wedding last year, and Paul was a groomsman in Lee and Jennifer’s wedding back in 2007. It’s been so fun hanging out and getting to see the gang over the years. It’s always a blast and we’re so happy we’ve gotten to be a part of all of their wedding days. Thanks so much you guys and we’re already looking forward to the next one!

Gap between the end of the ceremony to the start of the reception = lots of time for some fun & great portraits around Georgetown!
Love, love, love this shot of Mike and his groomsmen!
Adrienne had the sweetest cheshire cat smile.
LOVE these two! They know how to make an entrance.
Her dad’s toast was hi-larious. You’ll just have to trust us. :)
Jenni & Lee
Jenn & Paul
LOVE this shot Anne grabbed from outside!
Yea, their friends knew how to get their party on and Bill caught it!
People were raising their hands in the air a lot. It’s as if they just didn’t care.
Even the little ones in attendance didn’t know what to think about it all.
Okay, so maybe this little guy didn’t really care.
You really haven’t lost that lovin’ feeling, Adrienne. For reals.
As we were thinking about this letter to you, we considered your father’s opening welcome to your guests: “We had such high hopes for Adrienne.” We were at first, admittedly, a little taken aback by that opening line, but soon we were having a hard time keeping our cameras steady while capturing your laughter and the reactions of your guests beyond our own laughing. What followed encapsulated your personalities and the mood you had set for the day’s festivities to a tee. Given the sweet history we’ve had with you and several of your friends over the years, we truly felt like part of the family.
As we returned home the next day, we contemplated the things we were most grateful for during your wedding. Among them:
- You are such a fun, irreverent, off-beat couple, and you made the day all your own. From your slideshow during cocktails to your entrance into the ballroom – everyone there felt your personalities throughout the day. And Adrienne, you enthusiastically completed the extensive bourbon list at one of your local bars to get your name on the wall. So. Cool. That’s our definition of fame right there.
- Your priest opening his homily, speaking in Polish, after receiving correspondence from you asking him to add “some polish”, hahaha!
- That your wedding was the third among college friends/groomsmen whose celebrations we’ve shot, letting us connect once again with them.
- That it was such a hit (and apparently continuing tradition) of Mike and your groomsmen, adorned in mirrored sunglasses, serenading Adrienne to “You’ve Lost that Lovin’ Feeling”.
- And that you cared most of all about your guests’ enjoyment. Everything felt so warm, comfortable and real. That was very evident throughout the night and NO ONE wanted to leave that dance floor that night.
- And, of course, we loved that you wanted to spend some time going around Georgetown for some cool portraits. It was so great getting to spend your first hours as husband and wife with you both capturing your laughter, love and light.
Thank you so much for giving us the opportunity to truthfully document your Celebration (with a capital C) for you. We loved it all. Congratulations!
Peace & love…
