I really don’t even know where to begin with this wedding. It was kind of a love-fest between us and Melissa and Andrew, the planner and Melissa and Andrew, the videographer and Melissa and Andrew… See where this is going!
The weather couldn’t have been more perfect if you ordered it so that just put the day over the top!
We started off at the Hotel Monaco with the wedding party getting ready. If I could only photograph in one hotel in Washington, it would be the DC Monaco – a photographer’s dream!! Melissa and the ladies were so relaxed throughout the day. Of course the bright flowers and bridesmaids dress were just perfect to photograph.
I am kind of a sucker for Holy Rosary church. We photograph there a lot and it has to be one of my favorite churches in town because it’s small, beautiful and we are allowed to make great photographs. I always love the photographs from outside as the bride heads into the church with her dad.
After the ceremony, it was off to Upper Senate Park for group portraits and then we ended with just Melissa and Andrew. With the great weather, it was easy to just stay out and keep making great photographs!
Of course the Newseum is as amazing as you think it is. The views, the glass, the outside terrace… It’s modern and elegant at the same time and after Jamie and the ladies from Simply Chic Events got done with it, it was absolutely perfect. Every time you turned around there was a new little detail. I loved the menu cards under the glass plates and the guest cards that looked like polaroids of different DC locations.
The evening was capped off by a sparkler sendoff and a final kiss that was the perfect end to a perfect day!
