Congratulations, Sarah & Ross!

Memorial Day weekend certainly kept us busy! First up we had Sarah & Ross on Saturday afternoon. This wedding was important to me in two ways. First, Sarah and I have been dear friends ever since we met in high school. Second, she and Ross chose Newton White Mansion as their venue. My husband and I were married there nearly two years ago and we always love going back.

Here are some photos that I took of the day:The handmade wedding arch was dripping with flowers:The program fans were so adorable:This little basket held paper parasols:The sand ceremony is a great alternative to a unity candle for outdoor weddings. I like how they asked their celebrant to participate and used three separate colors of sand:Their escort cards rested on a bed of sand:

Sarah would appreciate us noticing how closely the colors of her linens and escort cards matched:Check out the adorable shell cluster at the base of my place card:Yours truly. I actually got to sit for a moment and enjoy lunch with my husband! This is me giving him the 'please stop embarassing me, honey' face: Matters of Taste set up this beautiful buffet and even got creative with extra parasols:In lieu of a wedding cake they opted for mini key lime pies and a dessert buffet!

Professional photo credits go to the amazingly talented MK McKenna. Here's how the day looked through her eyes:I love how happy they both look here:The kiddo on the right is Trevor of Trevor's Treasures. Sarah is a pediatric nurse and Trevor was one of her patients. He now raises money and awareness about his very rare form of cancer:After the wedding they took advantage of the remaining daylight and took some portraits:Brookside Gardens on the left and The Gaylord/National Harbor on the right (and above):
Kudos to Brian Vaughan for a beautiful ceremony, Cheryl from Matters of Taste for being a rockstar, MK McKenna for these amazing photos, Matt Buerhaus for always being easy to work with, and Mike Valenti from Bialek's for a great job as always. Flowers were done by the groom's sister. Anyone need a florist in Vermont?
