Brian & Candie | Mount St. Sepulchre Franciscan Monastery

May 18, 2016

I’m so humbled and blessed as a photographer to be invited into some of my client’s most treasured moments and sweetest memories-in-the-making. Brian and Candie chose to elope, on Sept. 13, 2015 at the Mount St. Sepulchre Franciscan Monastery in Northeast Washington D.C., and the morning couldn’t of been more perfect. The weather was incredible, the sunlight was hazy and soft, and when I think back on that day I still get goosebumps thinking about how precious, sweet, beautiful, and touching their ceremony was. Brian and Candie asked one of their closest friends to officiate the ceremony, and Candie’s adorable son Gage also exchanged vows with Brian as his new dad. To say I felt honored to document a day so special would be an understatement, I loved every minute of documenting this sweet wedding!

Our experience with Mary was amazing from day one. Finding a photographer can be stressful and frustrating but once me met with Mary we knew we had found “the one”. Mary shared our excitement and understood right away what our goals were for an intimate wedding ceremony. Her presence the morning of was calming and reassuring. And I cannot say enough about the incredible gift Mary has for capturing the moment. The seconds pass so quickly but Mary ensures none of them are missed. The final result is a story of our love, and the immense joy in our hearts, perfectly encapsulated in picture. We are so incredibly blessed to have had Mary be a part of our day and look forward to her presence documenting many special moments in the future. – Candie Cook
