kent + carter :: engaged!

We first met Carter and Kent 5 years ago, when Kent stood up as the Man of Honor at his sister’s wedding. I was head-over-heals ecstatic when Carter called last spring with the good news: now it was Carter and Kent’s turn to get married AND would we come to DC to shoot their wedding? Heck yes!! We kicked their wedding weekend off on Friday with an engagement shoot along the Mall in DC. The time we spent with Carter and Kent was inspiring; they have a love that has endured for 16 years, and their joy at sharing, celebrating and sealing their commitment was a marriage was palpable! Next up: wedding pictures!! Stay tuned for those . . . I should have them posted here on the blog in a week!

Bree + Craig :: engaged!

Congratulations, Bree & Craig, engaged and planning a June 2015 wedding (can you guess the day?!) right here in Columbia. Bree is a teacher extraordinaire, and Craig (in addition to his “day job”!) owns Woody’s Gentlemen’s Clothiers, Columbia’s newest and completely stylish menswear shop located on 9th street. We met on campus (the site of Craig’s proposal to Bree) for pictures and a stroll. So glad she said “yes!”

Arden + Biff :: Tennessee wedding photography by SilverBox

Whoop whoop! Hula hoop! Arden and Biff’s wedding in Franklin, Tennessee was pure delight and full of play.

Highlights (search below to see JUST what we mean) include: (1) a ”first hula hoop” following the bride and groom’s “first dance”; (2) Arden and Biff’s “first look” in an alleyway so adorable that I want to live there; (3) rings atop a beloved grandma’s bible; (3) dancing in one of a series of refurbished factory buildings built in 1929 to manufacture stoves; (4) the best homemade organic lemonade I’ve ever tasted; (5) time for pictures in unbelievably quaint, downtown Franklin, TN; (6) the sleeves and an oh-so-flattering neckline on Arden’s bridal gown; (7) both sets of parents accompanying  their children down the aisle; (8) photos of Biff and Arden set into vintage window frames hanging at the reception; (9) a big crowd of smart AND fun-loving family and friends from coast-to-coast; (10) did we mention hula hoops?!

Heidi + John :: Married for 30 years!

Congratulations, John and Heidi Miles! What a pleasure for us as wedding photographers to help a couple celebrate their 30th wedding anniversary with . . . pictures! We’ve admired and adored this family for years, so we were thrilled to be co-conspirators in this birthday surprise that John and their children decided to spring on Heidi. A toast to John and Heidi . . . to 30 shared years . . . to raising four incredible children . . . and to at least thirty MORE years (see you at your 60th?). Happy Happy HAPPY 30th wedding anniversary, John & Heidi!
