Always happy to brighten up a dreary day with a #MervisMoment ! Big congratulations are in order for our client Kyle and his new fiancé. 💍💕 Don’t forget that it’s not too late to save on your engagement or wedding rings during our December Diamond Days event at all three #MervisDiamond locations! 💎
I love a festive cocktail! Planning to make myself one of these when we get home tonight and maybe cozy up in front of a holiday movie. Anyone else have fun holiday weekend plans? #lissaryanphotography styling by @ivyandhonor film scans by @thefindlab hand lettering by @ladygpaperie local spirits by @catoctincreek #lrpeditorials
Big smiles because IT’S FRIDAY FAM!!!! And because I signed, sealed, and delivered a wedding gallery today and only have 5 more to finish and deliver this year! 💃🏼
On another note, how friggin CUTE is this picture of Madison + Jon + their wedding party?! This crew made a gloomy Saturday in the city so much fun. 🖤
This couple...their wedding and all the amazing vendors. Such a joy to spend the last year with them planning and designing their spectacular day! @anna.dokas

Winter whites get me every time! This season there’s so much noise and color - everywhere - I love the quiet space of a clean palette.

I'm just so in love with the relaxed at home vibe that Krystle and David wanted for their engagement photos. It makes me feel so warm and happy, AND I'm super looking forward to sending out the final gallery today! I didn't think I'd have their photos done until Sunday, but once I got into editing I just could not quit the adorable! Who can blame me?! 🤷😍
Who else has felt that this week has zoomed by? Even though it's gone by really quickly, it's been a productive and inspiring one. Okay, I had a little bit of a break-down yesterday over some idiocy, BUT after some ice cream I rallied my attitude - ya know...typical solopreneur stuff 😂!
Anyway, happy Friday, and I hope everyone's weekend is as cuddly as Krystle and David are in this photo ❤️!

All of this cold weather is making me miss Spring, like real bad! 🌸 Mainly, I miss flowers and leaves and the warm sunshine, but I also am missing getting my couples in front of my camera for their engagement session! Last spring, I photographed Jess + PJ at the gorgeous @oatlandsva Plantation in Leesburg, and I cannot WAIT for the beautiful couples I’ll be photographing next Spring! Also....I can’t wait for peony season because.....well....peonies 😍😍😍😍 #bethannearthurphoto
Engagement season is here! ✨ We love hearing from our newly engaged couples and we can’t wait to hear all about the exciting plans! We have a few openings for 2019, and now booking for 2020 (that has such a nice ring to it!) ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

We are in the final countdown to Andy and Arthur's wedding day!! Can I just say that when these two got out of the car and I saw Andy's hot pink coat, I was immediately ready for their wedding. There's something about the way a couple presents themselves at an engagement session that let's you know they are going to wildly amazing. And my goodness, are these two amazing.
Now, I'm not saying the ONLY reason I'm already packed and ready for Saturday is because of a pink jacket. No, no, no, no these two incredible, silly, happy individuals are the REAL reason behind all of my excitement - the coat is just a bonus 😋😍.
Throwing it back to an all-star #MervisMoment featuring our clients Melissa and Blair and shot by @terribaskin. Head to today’s Instagram story to check out more of our favorite holiday #MervisMoments , and don’t forget to tag yours, too!
Is there anything better than the holiday season? Movies, decorations....engagement rings!
I feel like this is the first time in a LONG time that I'm slowing down and appreciating the feelings of the holidays. It feels good, and I hope the rest of everyone's 2018 is festive and bright ❤️.
Cozy days are heading our way!! Today we’re busy flowering a holiday party, then onto our final wreath class on Thursday to close out the Rocking Bird season omg omg 💃💃💃💃💃💃💃🙌🙌🙌🙌🙌🙌😂😂😂😂😂😂😂 .

It's official! The first ever issue of WASHINGTONIAN WEDDINGS has arrived and is making its way to mailboxes as we speak! •
We are so excited for the new look, kicked off with this winter-wonderland-of-a-cover. The real life couple features James Berry Willett III and Emily Margaret Hudson tying the knot at Leesburg's Rust Manor House, shot by Stephanie Messick Photography. •
Inside, you'll find that this issue is packed with all the things that made Bride & Groom tick: lots of practical advice for DMV-area brides, inspiring editorials and gorgeous photography, and of course our vendor guide. We evaluated the merits of tech-free weddings, skincare tips for brides-to-be, how to handle rain on your wedding day, and more. In honor of the rebrand we also filled this issue with MORE real weddings, including five extended features for extra oogling. Speaking of... for our features we asked five area florists to design installations at five different price points and then (because can you ever really get enough florals?) headed to Hope Flower Farm in Virginia for our gown shoot. •
There's also fresh formatting, lovely little extras, and work from a whole host of other talented DC-area vendors, without which putting together this labor of love would not be possible each issue. As always thanks to everyone for their support, patience, and contributions from all our vendors and readers. Wishing everyone a very happy holidays—the Washingtonian Weddings team
Woohoo, Becky and Chris are married! This was my last wedding of the year, and I couldn't have asked for a better couple to celebrate with ❤️❤️❤️ Becky and I met while photographing weddings together, and I'm so glad I got to be there on her big day.
And I had a blast shooting alongside @redoctoberphotography as lead and @radiancefilmco on video!
