Featured - Completely Unveiled by Weddings Unveiled - Kristina & Alan's E-session

In the fall, before the beautiful leaves fell in Northern Virginia, I helped style a vintage lakefront engagement session for our of our October 2011 couples. This cute couple is one of our full service clients and we are planning a modern, fresh, DC wedding at the Newseum.  I won't divulge all the funky details, but I will say that we've scheduled some time for pedi-cab rides for the entire bridal party, and Kate Triano will be there to capture it all.  It's going to be a blast!  

Since Kristina & Alan will have a modern, city wedding, but both love the outdoors, they wanted to mix it up with a rustic outdoor shoot with their adorable puppy Gizmo (check him out below). Such a cutie pie!  

With their initials and wedding colors in mind, I started the inspiration with the idea of hot homemade " Apple Cider & Kisses".   With an adorable Anthropology dress, cozy sweaters for Alan and Gizmo, and a fuzzy throw to keep Kristina warm during the romantic canoe ride down the lake, every detail came together perfectly. Since it was our idea to get waterborne, I have to give Kate Triano props as she worked on her balance in our small boat all while snapping some great shots. Like always, I couldn't have pulled this shoot off with out my hubby, who manned our boat with our electric motor and helped get Kate in the right position. 

Other details in the shoot included cute muffins for a snack after the canoe ride,  homemade cinnabon popsicles, that Phong made,  cinnamon sticks to spice up the apple cider, and DIY tags and signs for the mason jar glasses and food.

  1. This is kinda unique wedding celebration because the couple chose to have a cute puppy on their wedding day. Wow! This is worth remembering for both of them. The photos are great!
