Quiet and thoughtful, maybe even a little shy at first, but once you get her smiling, Grayson’s toothy grin can melt an iceberg.  She loves songs, clapping, barnyard animals but she hates, yes I repeat, hates birthday cake.  Go figure.

Happy first birthday to Grayson Elizabeth!

Tyler Sullivan was born a little over a week late.  Even though he kept his Mom and Dad anxiously waiting, I think everyone will agree the wait was well worth it for this beautiful baby boy…

Born  February 6    |   12:49 pm   |   7 pounds, 10 ounces   |   21 inches long

He’s such a peanut!

Washington DC St. Francis Hall Wedding-1

Melissa and Davo are world travelers who found love through many of their shared passions.  I love the adverturous spark in these two, and yet they are both so humble at at the same time – truly two of the kindest, most generous and giving people I’ve had the pleasure of meeting.  They were married on a rainy winter’s day in downtown DC in a beautiful ceremony at their local church, followed by a celebratory reception at St. Francis Hall.  Davo is a pretty amazing travel photographer and one of my favorite parts of the wedding day was walking around to all of their reception tables and looking at his beautiful black&white landscape photographs that adorned the tables. I can’t wait to see what photographs he took on their honeymoon in South Africa!

Washington DC Mandarin Oriental Hotel Wedding-1

Rachel and Rob met through a mutual friend.  Almost a year later to the day, Rob proposed to Rachel in the quiet and intimate setting of the home they share together in New York City.  I got to know the couple this past summer on a trip up to New York where we spent a whirlwind of an afternoon bouncing around their hometown neighborhood together.  I got to meet their adorable mini Schnauzer, Whinnie, who sadly couldn’t make it to the wedding and had to stay home.  Rachel says one of the things she loves the most about Rob is that he’s the kindest person she’s ever met…I think him “adopting” Whinnie and taking care of her, even though she was Rachel’s dog first and even though Rob claims he’s not a dog person, is just one example of why Rachel fell in love with Rob.

The couple got married this past fall on a windy fall day in downtown DC at the gorgeous Mandarin Oriental.  Rachel and Rob were rockstars and braved the chilly wind and crowds at the Jefferson Memorial as the sun went down just before they signed their Ketubah and were married under a Huppah constructed from material of the wedding dresses of all of the special women in Rachel’s life.  It was, hands down, the most beautiful Huppah I’ve ever seen and something I know Rachel will cherish forever.  Congrats you two!!
