Buddy Walk 2011

Drew and I are excited to participate in our fifth Buddy Walk this Saturday morning in honor of our nephew, Vinnie! The Buddy Walk was developed by the National Down Syndrome Society (NDSS) in 1995 to promote acceptance and awareness of people with Down syndrome. All monies raised will support the Down Syndrome Network of Montgomery County (check out Vinnie's pic on their homepage!), The ARC of Montgomery County, and the NDSS. Please consider donating to this important cause - any amount will help!

To donate, visit our personal fundraising page HERE. Thanks for your support!

Here are some pictures of our lovable, huggable Vinnie at his first five Buddy Walks from 2006 to 2010.

Sara + Zack | Engaged

NYC engagement session

Sara + Zack met during their freshman year at University of Pennsylvania and fell in love. Seven years later, Zack took Sara to Rome and surprised her with an incredible proposal. What's even more incredible is Zack flew both of their families out to Rome, so they could surprise Sara and take part in the celebration, as well. The story is amazing. We love these two and are so happy for them! They live in NYC, so we thought an engagement session at their favorite spots in the city would be fitting. Their wedding was earlier this month in Cambridge, MD - we can't wait to share those pics, too!

Dogs at Weddings

United With Love is a wonderful resource for wedding inspiration in the DC area. Today's post is about including your dog at your wedding. We love the idea and it always makes for adorable moments like this one below from Lauren + Keith's wedding.

And these two from Teresa + Cap's wedding. I can't handle the cuteness.

Meghan + Ajay | Engaged

Engagement session at the National Gallery of Art, Maria Vicencio Photography

We spent an awesome morning with Meghan + Ajay over Memorial Day weekend. We met them at the WWII Memorial where they had their first date. Then bagels and silliness ensued. We absolutely loved hanging out with these two!


Ajay proposed to Meghan over bagels, and they eat them every Saturday. So of course we had to include bagels in their pics :)



They originally wanted to have their wedding at a museum, so the National Gallery of Art was a perfect location to end their session. We're officially in love with this place.


Their miming skills are ridiculously awesome.


Meghan + Ajay - can't wait for next summer! :)

Kiersten + Beau | A Baltimore Wedding at The Belvedere

Our second wedding of 2011 was Kiersten and Beau's fabulous Baltimore celebration! We love these two. We had been looking forward to this day ever since their wintry engagement session in DC. Their intimate, candlelit ceremony at the Mt. Vernon United Methodist Church was beautiful. The look on Beau's face when he saw Kiersten for the first time walking down the aisle was so sweet and heartwarming. He and Kiersten were both beaming with happiness. The night ended with a cocktail-style reception at the Belvedere, filled with awesome food, music, dancing, and photobooth shenanigans :)

Kelly + Nick | Engaged

vintage engagement session in leesburg, va

We adore Kelly + Nick. When they contacted us about a vintage-inspired engagement session, we couldn't resist. They're both creative people. Nick is a web designer and videographer, and Kelly is a graphic designer and also works for The League for People with Disabilities - a girl after my own heart. They're also big music people and love the movie, Up (see the adorable bottle cap pin Nick made for Kelly below :) We spent a beautiful afternoon in Leesburg with these two and had a blast!
