I’ve been trying to describe what a sublime and delightful time we all had at the Rice House, but you simply had to be there.  I hope the images can give you a small window in to what I think will be an annual event for years to come.  There were three separate set-up and breakdown sessions due to the very unpredictable weather, but the team of folks working the event simply went to work each time without a word.  I think the band, which was originally slated to play on the back patio, got a better place and view of the action.  As the day moved in to night, the rain moved away and the party, already hopping inside the house, shimmied its way to the dance floor.  Special thanks to our hosts: McBride Events, Mosaic, The Knot, and The Science Museum of Virginia.  They gave the wedding community of Richmond the gift of “party”.  I know how grateful Lindsay and I were given how busy the season has been so far.  It was so nice to step back, have a cocktail, hit the dancefloor, and just spend time with a great cast of characters.   There are so many people that devoted their time and resources to this day, so I’ll just list them.  Please make sure to check out their work, like their businesses on Facebook, and leave a wonderful comment about them here.

I’m a big local music fan, as some who know me will attest to.  While I don’t get to see as many shows as I used to, I try to make it out a few times a month as time allows.  One of my favorites, then and now, is the D.J. Williams Projekt.  They’ve been playing the same Tuesday show at Cafe Diem for years and I have yet to see anything less than a packed bar by the time they hit their stride at mid-set.  You really must make your way out if, by some crazy way, you haven’t seen them.

A little while back, D.J. approached me about doing a little session with him and Erika.  Of course I was excited, of course I said yes, and after a few scheduling hiccups we finally found the perfect day.  In addition to a little time up on Church Hill, I got a little time with them both in the studio.  D.J. and Erika indulged me for a little lighting work and I was very happy with the results.

Happy Holidays all and enjoy.
