September 15, 2021 Lisa + Mike | Woodend Sanctuary Wedding Photos | Chevy Chase, MD
Lisa and Mike were married this past Sunday morning in the sweetest celebration ever. I’m so excited to share the highlights today!
From Lisa and Mike: “We met through our friends Travis and April. Lisa first really paid attention to Michael when he dressed up as “Fire” to a flambé party, though they didn’t start talking until the pool party months later. A few months after that, Lisa reached out to Michael on Facebook and Michael asked Lisa out. On our first date, Michael took Lisa to a museum, and her passionate appreciation for a painting’s colors endeared her to him. During the next year we fell in love with each other and with each other’s cat. Eventually, Michael moved back to Maryland from Virginia and we got an apartment together. When the pandemic first hit and we quarantined together, our relationship only thrived from the experience. On July 8, 2020, Michael took Lisa for a walk in Savage Park, with a ring in his pocket. He kissed her for what was an unusually long kiss as he struggled to pull the ring box out of his pocket, before he asked Lisa to marry him. Lisa said yes, and then surprised him later with a ring she had bought for him.”
Lisa and Mike were married at Woodend Sanctuary in Chevy Chase, MD. As soon as I pulled up I knew it was such an appropriate choice for them. They love being outdoors and hiking together and this place is just so beautiful and felt like them. Six years ago, I photographed Lisa’s brother’s wedding and it was so fun seeing Paul and Christie’s little boys steal the show at the wedding. Lisa LOVES her role as Auntie and it was so sweet watching her love on the little ones as well. But there was no love that outshone the love that Mike and Lisa have for each other. I just adore these two so much. I’m sure you’ll see why from the photos. Without further ado, here are some of my favorites!
