Blessed Sacrament Wedding | Chevy Chase, MD

WEDDING

This Blessed Sacrament wedding in Chevy Chase, MD was full of cozy touches and rose gold flourishes that made winter feel like the most spectacular time of the years. 

Colleen who is a wedding planner herself & the owner of O’Neil Events chose to get ready at her parent’s home in Chevy Chase before the wedding ceremony to be held at Blessed Sacrament Catholic Church.

Shoes are one of my favorite wedding day accessories and these stunners from Badgely Mischka in rose gold satin with crystal embellishments were a perfect pair.

Getting ready at home before your wedding can be an excellent way to help manage your wedding day budget, but can additionally also add incredible personal touches.  The baby photos on the shelf above where Colleen’s dress truly show a part of her own personal history and that of her family as well.

As part of her something old, something new, something borrowed, something blue, Colleen had a small piece of the parachute her grandfather parachuted with out of his plane to safety during WWII with sewn into the hem of her dress.

Candid wedding photography is often something I’m asked about.  Couples want to know how many of the photos are staged and how many are candid.  The answer varies a lot of wedding to wedding; however, when I find one of these moments it just makes my wedding photographer heart sing.  I’m absolutely smitten with the way Danny looked at Colleen during their vows.  This is candid wedding photography at it’s finest.

The arches in Blessed Sacrament were perfect for framing the couple at the alter.
