fire burnin’ on the dance floor.
laurie + ben are married!
you may remember this amazing couple from their recent engagement session where we had the best time running the streets of bethesda. i was *so* incredibly amped up for their wedding day because i just love these two so much! laurie + ben are wonderful individuals with a dynamic love that makes them shine as a couple. i seriously doubt i will ever meet anyone with as much fabulous, positive, amazing energy as laurie – she is unbelievable! watching her and ben together made me so incredibly happy – i totally *love* people that are in love!
laurie + ben love living in bethesda and had the perfect local wedding, showing their guests a glimpse of life in their neighborhood. the wedding events centered around their favorite spots, and the church and hotel were just a few blocks from their home. the ceremony took place at the church in bethesda, followed by a gorgeous reception at the doubletree hotel. it was a gorgeous day and we found tons of great spots for photos, and then traveled through town in a old time trolley – i *love* trolleys!
as insinuated by the title of this post, the reception was totally off the chain – a huge, fun dance floor that rocked all night long! laurie + ben were on fire and so fun to photograph! everyone was on the dance floor, not just their fun-lovin, move-bustin’ friends, but almost every guest, from the little kids to the parents and the grandmas, even the blonde photographer tossed a camera to one of the bridesmaids and got down for a few minutes! the playlist was phenomenal and i had the greatest time ever capturing all the action…enjoy!
laurie + ben: you are the best! i am so happy that you found each other, so thrilled for your life together, and so crazy lucky to have documented your day! thank you!
the *perfect* ring shot for mr + mrs hershey!
sometimes when the crowd demands it…
…the blonde photographer gives in!
