When Maggie contacted me back in July about her Thursday wedding, her email was so full of sunshine and happiness that I immediately wanted to be there — if not as a photographer, maybe as a guest! She explained that she and her fiancé Daniel were planning on an afternoon reception “with lots of lawn games, fun, and bright colors. As we are all about homegrown, local businesses, we are serving tacos and Quack’s cupcakes!” Add to the fact that Maggie and Daniel know my past awesome clients Polly and Rigel, and I just knew I had to be a part of this.
After their chilly first look on the Capitol grounds, Maggie and Daniel were wed at St. Elias Orthodox church downtown, and held their daytime reception at Mercury Hall. Surrounded by DIY paper flowers, colorful felt balls, lawn games, and giant cupcakes, the couple and their guests enjoyed hot cocoa, coffee, and heartfelt toasts. Special thanks to Stefanie at Your Wedding Your Way for keeping everything organized!
“Say, are you doing anything later?”
I loved Maggie’s Anthropologie coat that she wore over her dress. The lace on her dress is from her mother’s wedding dress! And because she can’t live without color, she included a mint petticoat, orange tights, and green shoes!
