Rock Creek Park Washington DC: Trash The Dress or get it slightly wet

So I had to end up going with showing Caron and Deborah’s Trash The Dress shoot first because I’m having a horrid time choosing my top 10 favorite images from their wedding the day before.

Deborah and Caron are the singers/musicians behind the band Deborah Vial which is big in the Texas area. They are now semi-retired and live in Hawaii but when they heard that DC legalized gay marriage- they decided to plan their wedding for DC in just a few weeks. I’ll blog more about their wedding when I post it- but the next day we headed over to Rock Creek Park in DC and decided to get our feet in the river. Nothing too drastic as they were tired from the wedding day and it was *cold*. Note to self: when shooting in a river, wear crocs as river rocks are sharp and slippery.

Forgive me for posting so many images of just Deborah but I’m slightly obsessed with her purple dress. Like, way obsessed.


[…] Luckily I was and we began furiously talking on the phone/email and making it all come together. With 8 people attending the wedding, they wanted everyone to feel included. With so little time, they wanted to make sure it all came together. So with the Hotel Monaco as their getting ready location, the Capital Yacht Charters as their ceremony location, and Dan Furnansky as their officiant- the day was full of lots of laughing and felt so relaxed. With a small wedding like this, I got to know every guest. We talked almost all day so much so I lost my voice for the next day. I got to learn all about Deborah and Caron’s incredible music careers (and listen to their cd non-stop on the way home).  And if you want even more photos of the two of them, have you seen their trash the dress/suit session?

That is an awesome dress. Gorgeous, gorgeous.

That dress is different!
