Washington, DC New Year’s Wedding

A year ago, we helped plan Matt and Laura’s out-of-this-world New Year’s wedding in Dupont Circle at Epic Yoga Studio. Sarah Culver took some great photos of this couple, their family and their friends celebrating and ringing in the New Year.

Holly and Matt|Carnegie Institute for Science

We had the great privilege of helping Holly and Matt plan their wonderful wedding. They got married at the beginning of August and husband and wife team, Steve and Bernadette Dalgetty, of An Endless Pursuit Photography captured their wedding beautifully. Here are a few of our favorites.

Robes for your Bridal Party

One of the most practical and nicest gifts you can give your bridesmaids are robes. They’re practical because your girls can wear the morning of the wedding. They’re nice because they can use them after your wedding too. Plus, they look great in pre-ceremony photos! Here are some great ones we have come across recently.

Jenny & David’s Engagement Shoot

I have privilege of working with a fabulous couple on their November 2014 wedding. Even in the short time we have been working together, I have been so impressed by their thoughtfulness — both to others and to each other. They are a joy to work with and I am so excited for their Big Day! Here are some beautiful shots of their engagement — featured on United With Love — and taken by the talented Dani P. S. Photography.

Best wishes and congratulations Jenny and David!

Beautiful Fall Wedding at Holy Trinity and Old Ebbitt Grill

Photographed beautifully by Currie Fitzhugh, Xan and Matt’s wedding was a beautiful event!  They got ready at the Willard, had the ceremony at Holy Trinity, and the reception took place at the rooftop and Atrium of Old Ebbitt. I adored working with them and their wonderful families and wish them all the best! Check out the wedding on Currie’s blog.
