The last time I had a Rock Creek Resort wedding, it was December 2013, and it was probably under 20 degrees. It was cold that’s all I know. I am so so glad I was able to shoot there again on a warm August day.
August 31 2019
Baili and Brett are such good people. I absolutely loved having out with the the whole day. After their first look by the creek, we drove up the road for some photos in the mountains. They popped a bottle of champagne that Brett had bought the day he proposed. Obviously Baili is such a stunning woman, and I loved the way she left her hair down in simple loose curls with such a detailed dress. Her bouquet was insane. The hints of blue, dark blooms, and ribbons completed her look perfectly.
As the ceremony approached, the crew (me and my second shooter, Sam and his second shooter) discussed our game plan. Because the ceremony space was far from typical. Baili picked the shaded patio, but with a couple hundred guests attending, Better to Gather had to think outside the box. Hence the arch right in the center, with guests angled in on each side. That left basically the some of the best seats for us photographers/videographers to stand without blocking anyone’s view. Fine with us! We stood under the tree and along the chairs to get the most amazing shots of their touching ceremony.
Afterward the newlyweds and their bridal party went upstairs to hang out while the Rock Creek Resort staff set up cocktail hour on the patio. Sammy had finished perfecting the most amazing five tier cake complete with delicious macaroons. The candles were lit inside and the head table stood out with stunning florals and detailed place settings. The reception included all the cake, macaroon favors, and dancing. Oh and I’d like to mention that I contributed to the epic dance moves. While doing sunset photos I shared my “quick hop back up”…still working on the name but it’s signature and Brett used it on the dance floor. This wedding was one for the books, thank you Baili + Brett for letting me document it!
