I met these two love birds after their surpise engagement that morning. That’s right. JD planned and coordinated with his family to surprise Leah with the proposal of a lifetime, followed by engagement photos to capture the moment, and then on to a surprise party with their closest family and friends in her honor! The spring cherry blossoms couldn’t have put on a better show for us and were the perfect backdrop to his romantic gesture. We had the best time walking around the tidal basin for our photo session. I can’t wait to see what the future brings for them!
Judy and Joe decided to tie the knot on Veterans Day at one of my FAVORITE places, Stone Tower Winery. It was a gorgeous day, albeit a teeeeeeny bit blustery. They had a beautiful first look among the vines and then we had a great photo session around the stunning grounds of Stone Tower. I loved Judy’s bouquet which was made of ornamental pins that all the women in her life gave to her. Such a special idea! After their portraits, it was into the tank room for their touching ceremony. Their happiness and joy at dedicating the rest of their lives to eachother and eachother’s families was beautiful. They celebrated the rest of the evening in Stone Tower’s Harvest Barn loft.
Gina and Josh’s winter wedding in D.C. at the Whittemore House was wonderful! Gina and Josh are adroable and have so much love for eachother, their friends, and family it made me feel all warm and fuzzy inside to be witness to it. Gina’s sister made their bouquets, Josh’s brother officiated the ceremony, and at one point, one of Gina’s cousins who is currently serving overseas was even able to skype in to be a part of the celebration! They had a fabulous vendor team: Leigh from Chic Weddings,The Dupont Hotel, The Whittemore House,& MSE Productions all did a fabulous job.
I recently had the opportunity to have some great fun in Colorado with Sharnay and Travis. Celebrating their wedding among the Rocky Mountains in the snow was heaven! Check out our portrait session below.
It’s been quite a while since I’ve gotten my act together with blogging. 2016 proved to be our best (and definitely busiest!) year yet and I sadly lost track of blogging. However, that means I have ALL kinds of goodies coming your way over the next few weeks. Get ready for eye candy!
Speaking of eye candy, the Spring wedding of Rebecca & Ed was a classicly beautiful D.C. wedding at Saint Francis Hall. Jasmine Smith (of Jasmine Smith & Co) paired the timeless feel with subtle modern touches for this wedding design. I loved how the bridesmaids bouquets from Scentsational Florals were a classic, romantic pink but simple, modern tulips and Rebecca’s time honored ballgown had an awesome striped fabric that showed a fun, artistic side. Chef Lynette & Well Dunn catering also contributed to the theme with some spectacular custom cocktails, delicious dishes, and some phenomenal cupcakes.
