A Cuban cutie and a silly redhead… I bet your thinking “I love Lucy” right, nope. It’s Jamie and Vince and the story of their wedding day! these two totally fit the movie personalities of Lucy and Ricky making for a fun wedding filled with humor. Vince in this story is a marine in the military making the Chapel at the annapolis naval base the perfect place for their ceremony, and creating lots of opportunities for Jamie to add in a few military details (which you’ll see in this post) here and there. Their dog cooper (aka mini coop) a Boston terrier was a fixture in her room as she was getting ready, and was such a fun addition to the morning buzz. Jamie planned most of the wedding while Vince was away so lots of the touches were hand made DIY details and coordinated by a friend. They really pulled it off like pros, they even had cigars (no cuban’s) for the guys to smoke and old cigar boxes decorating the tables as center pieces.
These two live in the heart of downtown washington DC, and since that’s such a beautiful place to take photos I met up with them in their neighborhood. pennsylvania ave in dc was just right outside their home so we took some fun photos right there on the street with the Capitol Building in the background. I can’t take to much credit because it was Craig who suggested it, some of my favorite monument photos in DC.
During Missy and Alex’s engagement session we started with a couple of beers at their favorite restaurant, then later that evening we headed over to the potomac for some beautiful photos under the willow trees.
This Orcutt ranch wedding in the west hills of southern California had a very colorful flair with lots of DIY touches, check out the florals with the matching shoes! so cute!
