I was out in the garden this morning taking pictures and was absolutely struck with how beautiful the light was as it filtered through the rose and Pyracantha arch. It was really gorgeous. What started several years ago with, really, nothing, has grown into a fabulous arching tunnel of green that covers nearly half of the hundred-foot brick walk. It’s just amazing. Great for pics, magical at night, and an enchanting entranceway from the city to a place apart. —David
As always with the spring garden, more to come! —David
It’s the middle of March, and the Chase Court garden is starting to show it’s spring colors! The apricot tree started to bloom a couple of days ago, and it is gorgeous!
Those beautiful blossoms turn into tasty apricots just about July 4th.
The ceremony garden is already alive with activity. This big beautiful flower is Camellia Japonica April Blush. It’s been blooming, one flower at a time, for a couple of weeks.
More soon! —David

Jason Putsche (shown here with his bride-to-be, Ella) is a young up-and-coming wedding photographer whose work I really like. Not only is he a very nice guy, which helps, but he has a good eye for shooting the meaningful moments of a wedding. Equally important, Jason understands the technical side of photography. For example, his photographs made in the Chase Court ballroom make our guests look good while not ‘burning out’ the walls to white. Everything looks just like you’d see it with your eye. That’s what you want in your photographs.
Here’s a link to a whole wedding that Jason shot at Chase Court.
One of the standing pieces of advice about choosing wedding photographers is to look at a whole wedding. Anyone can get lucky for a few shots. What you want to see is how they did start to finish. I think you’ll love Jason’s work just as much as I do.
By the way, this wedding shows 96 guests at Chase Court, and it shows an indoor ceremony. Both look great and are a very comfortable fit in the space.
