Jacki & Reid: Married! Pippin Hill Vineyard Wedding {Charlottesville, Virginia}

Jacki and Reid had the most incredible wedding. You may recall that I was on Cloud 9 afterwards. The setting at Pippin Hill literally had me spellbound (I actually backed my car into a lamp post upon arrival because I was so blown away by the view. Whoops.) And not only was the scenery gorgeous, but can you ask for a better looking couple and wedding party?!? Way to make my job easier!

I LOVE THESE PHOTOS. Take a page from Jacki, brides, colorful silk robes are not only a lovely bridesmaid’s gift, but make for some lovely pictures during getting ready time. I’m particularly fond of the one on the right. I said, “Give me your best Designing Women face… give me Sugarbakers!” and these ladies snapped on the Southern Belle. Dixie Carter would be proud!

You know it’s a party with the bride and groom take the stage…TWICE! They brought down the house!

Here’s one last one for now… my favorite of the day.

Congrats, Jacki & Reid!

Election Night 2012 in DC

The theme of the night was social media. When the celebrations spilled into the streets after it was clear that President Obama had successfully been reelected, the smart phones came out!

I was told that a presidential election is like the Super Bowl for DC… and it did not disappoint! I love living in a community that is so fired up about EVERYTHING. DC is an incredible mix of passionate people doing extraordinary things (political and otherwise). Here are some more images from the streets:

On that note… see you in 4 years… EP for President.
