Maine Wedding Photographer: Moments and Memories …

I want to take a couple minutes to talk about why I have such a wonderful job and how fortunate I am.  Last year I had the pleasure of photographing Rachel & Brad’s wedding and Rachel & Matt’s wedding.  These two families are one big family now :)  At Rachel and Brad’s wedding I met some pretty wonderful people who I am excited to say I still talk to once in a while :)  So anyway I photographed with another wedding professional and there at that wedding I found the same wonderful people from earlier that summer!  This year I am blessed to be seeing them several more times…since more of their mutual friends are getting married.  These weddings are so much fun because the people are so sweet.  I am blessed to have been welcomed into their lives, and I am so excited to see more of them in the future.  Anyway, this blog post is dedicated to Noelle & Dan (Noelle did a wonderful job on one of my brides hair yesterday), Allison and Josh (whose wedding I am sooooo pumped to be photographing this year on Oct. 1st) and Parker and Melissa whom I would like to send a huge congratulations to as they will be getting married in 2013.  Its a wonderful wedding world with these guys!  Enjoy the moments and memories from last year, and know there are many more images…as this was only two of the weddings I photographed this crew at.

To Noelle & Dan: you always have smiles on and sure do bring the dance party!

To Allison & Josh: I have really enjoyed getting to know you two!  You are going to have a wonderful wedding, and you two are adorable together!  Oh and I’m sorry these aren’t the greatest images of you two…Josh….well…enough said :)  (You can however see their amazing engagement photos on my blog if you want to see better images of Josh :) )

To Melissa & Parker: What a pair!  Parker always brings his best to photos :)  and Melissa is one of the sweetest women I have met.  You two will have a wonderful wedding and are made to grow old together!

Looking forward to seeing some of you this weekend!

Rusty B: Graham & Amy’s Wedding in Baltimore

Posted by Rusty B

August 29th, 2011

I had the pleasure of djing a wonderful wedding at The Baltimore Museum of Industry this past Saturday for Graham and Amy Snyder. With hurricane Irene being well hyped and the fear of high winds, Amy and Graham called me the week before and changed up the time-line so that everything started earlier and ended around 7pm. I told them this would be no problem, and changed up my plans to accommodate the new timeline. I only had a chance to speak with Amy and Graham over the phone before the wedding and they informed me that they wanted some classic lounge music for the cocktail hour, be-bop jazz for dinner and classics only for dance time with a strict rule of no songs past when Thriller came out. I informed them that this would be no problem, and I got to work on putting together a tight set list since we only had a short dance set.

I arrived quite early since the rains had started in DC earlier that day, and I know how bad traffic can be in any type of weather so getting there early was a must. When I showed up it was already pouring rain, but with easy access to the doors I was inside and set up in no time. They had a nice little set up, as you first walked into the Museum you were greeted with a classic typewriter, in which you could type in your entry for the guest book, really neat. The cocktail hour was set up in a hallway next to some really cool exhibits, and classic cars all built right there in Baltimore. I had a second sound-system set up playing classic lounge music, which seemed to really fit the vibe of the place and guests. Since time was of the essence we quickly wrapped up the cocktail hour and moved everyone to the other side of the museum for the introduction and dinner. On the way to the other side of the museum guest had the pleasure at checking out some great exhibits of industrial innovations from Baltimore.

After we moved everyone down to the other side of the museum, we fired through the introduction and some toasts and then the guests were informed from Chef Paul of what the 3 course dinner would be and where all the vegetables came from etc. The dinner was amazing, I can’t even tell you what was all in it, but you could tell everyone loved it as all the plates were going back empty.

The first dance was to The Flamingos “I Only Have Eyes For You”; which I feel is one of the most touching and loving songs I have heard used as a first dance and the parent dances which were from Elvis and Ray Charles. With time being crunched and the weather progressing outside, I was asked to shorten my set to just 35 minutes. I quickly got up and started with a couple Motown hits, which weren’t really getting people to move. I then decided to drop “Come on Elieen” as the winds and rain were banging the window next to the dance-floor and in an instant everyone got up and started singing “Come on Irene” and dancing away. I then just banged through as many songs as I could fit in the time frame, cutting songs down to about 2 minutes each. Everyone was up and dancing and it was painful to shut it all down so quickly, but the weather was progressively getting more intense and water was actually coming in though the windows and onto the dance-floor so it was time to wrap things up. I finished with Ray Charles “Why don’t we all just get stoned”; and we closed it out and sent everyone home to beat the harder rains and wind from Irene.

Wonderful Striped Wedding Attire

Stripes are one of the freshest and most tailored patterns for attire. When you are planning the outfits for everyone in your wedding, there are some great ways to use the crisp look of stripes to make your bridal party look fantastic. Here are some great ideas for wonderful striped wedding attire for the entire group.

Stripes are fresh and crisp, tailored and classic. They can be formal and restrained, as in a pin stripe suit. Stripes can be exuberant when they are done in a rainbow of bright colors. They can be vertical, horizontal, printed or woven, even made from ribbon embellishments. With all this variety, it is no wonder that stripes are one of the best patterns to choose when dressing your wedding party.

You can find some amazing striped dresses for your bridesmaids. The most classic are a two color stripe, woven in a fairly stiff fabric. This looks fantastic for a knee length strapless dress, in any color. If you are having a preppy wedding, pink and green stripes are perfect, especially when paired with pearl bridesmaid jewelry. For summer weddings, you cannot beat the fresh and easy look of seersucker striped bridesmaid dresses, in pink and white or blue and white. The classic elegance of pearl bridesmaid jewelry also looks pretty with this style of dress, and will not compete with the patterned fabric.

For a formal wedding, I love the look of a ball skirt made from wide tonal stripes (which have a very subtle contrast between colors). Rich gold tones created in wide vertical stripes look magnificent and grand. The top of the ensemble can be a fitted strapless or square neck top in a solid color that matches one of the stripes, a cashmere twinset, or even a white wrap blouse in a dressy taffeta. The last style also works beautifully for the mother of the bride or groom.

The men in the wedding will also look handsome in stripes. A very subtle pinstripe or even a chalk stripe suit can be a nice option for a fairly formal wedding which is not black tie. Just be sure that the effect is not overly business like, and avoid double breasted pinstripe styles, which look more mafioso than stylish. A solid suit can be made more interesting with the addition of a striped shirt. This looks especially nice for a summer wedding when the groom and his groomsmen will be wearing linen suits. A pastel striped shirt adds a nice detail to the mix. And of course, don’t forget about dressing up a solid suit and shirt with a boldly striped repp tie.

Even the bride can get into the act. A white on white seersucker stripe would be fresh and beautiful for a spring or summer bridal gown. The detail is very subtle, but so pretty when seen up close. You can also find some wonderful wedding dresses which have horizontal or vertical bands of lace, which creates a striped effect. Pearl bridal jewelry with crystal accents would be a lovely finishing touch, especially if the lace is beaded.

There is nothing to say that the attire worn for a wedding has to be one solid color. Stripes and other patterns add style and flair to the traditional cuts that are typically used for bridesmaid and wedding dresses. And a fun stripe is one of the few chances that the groom has to make his wedding attire interesting and unique. Have fun introducing your favorite stripe design into your wedding attire; you will be glad that you did.
