Calder at the Playground

The weather in DC has definitely been nicer than in MA, so we took advantage of the sunshine and went to one of the nearby playgrounds to get a few pictures of Calder yesterday. Calder is adorable, what a smile! He has plenty of energy for running around the playground, trying to get up the slides and making his way through the tunnel system. Here are a few of my favorite shots!

Still Striking!

In DC again, the union is still on strike outside the Madison on 15th Street NW and they can definitely be heard from blocks away. I can't imagine staying at the Madison during this, crossing the line to hear "Shame!" blasted at me from a megaphone. I hope there is a fair conclusion to this soon.

Marisha & Kenneth's Ceremony

Marisha Getting Ready

Congratulations Marisha & Kenneth!

The newly weds taking a moment to relax with each other after their beautiful ceremony.

The start of the reception, at the Clarion Hotel in Northampton, was an emotional time with a moment to remember the people who couldn't be there with them and some heartfelt toasts for the couples future. After the meal, Marisha and Kenneth's friends and family helped the couple kick off their marriage with a fun, lively celebration with plenty of dancing and singing.

With the reception winding down Marisha & Kenneth take a few more moments for photos and some more time together, both tired from the day.

The Runway Finale

The Bancroft Bridals runway show ended with some gorgeous wedding gowns that I felt deserved their very own post in classic black & white. Look at the detail and flow of these dresses.

On the Wedding Runway

The Westfield Drama club kicked off the Bancroft Bridals runway show with a musical introduction from Chicago, which the club will soon be performing. Following the music and dance number were some featured wedding gowns and bridal party dresses from Bancroft Bridals.

The Men of Formal Affair

At The Western New England Spring Bridal Show held at the MassMutual Center in Springfield, the men on the runway showcasing the styles found at Formal Affair tossed roses to the Brides to be in attendance. These guys really knew how to put on a show!

Bridesmaids Dress

      My friend Ashley asked me to be a part of her wedding and I'm so excited to stand with her, she's such an amazing person. She chose a beautiful dress by Alfred Angelo for us to wear, check it out on the Alfred Angelo website, it will be in the color 'Claret'.

      The only difficulty is that I live about six hours away from her and the bridal boutique she is working with, so today I stopped by Bancroft Bridals to find out if the dress was available there. I spoke with a wedding consultant, Lindsay Bacis, who was really friendly and so helpful in getting my measurements and ordering the dress for me. I was really impressed with their store, the layout and selection, as well as the welcoming atmosphere.
