Elizabeth and Adam | Washington, D.C. Wedding

When Elizabeth and I first started talking about her wedding plans, she explained some very important things. They were both from the west coast, she said. Consequently, most of their families and friends would be traveling from the West and other parts of the country. It would be a small wedding and they really wanted all their out-of-town guests to see – no; experience – the city that she and Adam were beginning to love so much.  And that’s exactly what they did. The wedding itself spanned 3 locations and Reston Limousine provided bus transportation for the guests to each location. The route between each location, however, was expanded to be a driving tour enabling the guests to see key parts of DC. As she was telling me this, I got so excited! What a great idea and what a great way for their friends and family to see so much of the city that had become their home!

They day ran  like clockwork; the ceremony was held at the beautiful Tudor Place, the cocktail hour overlooked a DC sunset, and dinner was hosted at the fabulous Acadiana. But we’ll get to that in a minute!  I first wanted to say that it was such a joy to be there on a GORGEOUS Saturday to witness a union 9 years in the making. Elizabeth and Adam, it was a pleasure to see your comfortable love and to cheer with your friends and family as they truly and deeply celebrated with you on such a momentous day. It couldn’t have been any more beautiful and I am so honored that I was able to share it with you! Take look at some of my favorites!

Our day started with Elizabeth getting ready at the Grand Hyatt – holy cow that was a beautiful place!

Elizabeth got her dress at P. Lawrence in Gaithersburg and I was seriously in love with it…

Elizabeth’s hair AND makeup was done by Kira Sanders from Bridal Beauty Associates. It was so nice to finally work with them and Kira did SUCH a great job! Her hair and makeup were both flawless!

As soon as we got to the Tudor Place, we had to get some portraits!!

After shooting some inside, we went outside for a few more and I couldn’t have been more happy with the garden feel..

One of my all time favorites!

Elizabeth and Adam had their ceremony on the Bowling Green and it was perfect! It was quiet, calm, peaceful…and the live harp music coinciding with the chirping birds made it feel especially oasis-like.

GORGEOUS entrance:-)

Instead of a unity candle, Elizabeth and Adam pressed flowers from their day! So creative!

They wanted to make sure that we got pictures of the rings on Adam’s Grandfather’s Bible! Loved it!

After family formals at the ceremony site (Have I ever mentioned how much I LOVE outdoor family formals?!) we had PLENTY of time for portraits! So get ready..there’s a lot!

You guys are precious!!

Loved this one!

Dear Jesus…Can I just once look this elegant?!

They are so cute together! I love the looks they give each other:-)

The Tudor Place is amazing..

I think this was part of the Japanese Tea House? Whatever it was, it was COOL!

I LOVE LAUGHTER!!

Ok, normally I probably wouldn’t post this, but as I was editing I saw something! Please tell me someone else sees the heart that goes around them?! Anyone?

Next, we went down to the Capitol so we could get a little more “D.C.” feel, so we took the following..

I normally don’t like shooting with the sun right on my couple, but I loved how these turned out!

Aaaandd…we were right next to the Botanical Gardens (CLOSED! BOO!) so naturally we had to make a stop out front..

Our next stop was the roof of Old Ebbitt Grill for the cockail hour. I’ve personally not really experienced anything so cool in DC! It was wonderful!

I love this picture! I think part of it is the big smiles, but I also really loved their style!

Oh, hi Grandma Joy!!

We ended the night at Acadiana, an awesome Louisiana flared fine-dining experience! Also, a big shout out to Tyler of Voila! Event Studio who worked expertly to coordinate all the events following the ceremony! Thanks Tyler!

Acadiana provided dessert with dinner, so Elizabeth and Adam opted for a smaller cake from Baked and Wired to satisfy the tradition.

I love first dances so much!

When Elizabeth danced with her dad, I think everyone needed a tissue..

There was also a slideshow of the couple and their families..

…and warm toasts..

Cake cutting!

Loved this idea..

And the rest of the evening was spent in quality time with the ones they loved most!

Congratulations guys, and thank you so much for letting me be a part of your amazing day! It couldn’t have been more perfect! And a special thanks to everyone who helped make this day so wonderful!
