KC and Andrew’s National Museum of Women in the Arts wedding last June was one of my favorites of the whole season. It was a true DC affair in the sense that we visited FIVE (yes, five!) different spots across the city. We started at the Grand Hyatt hotel downtown for some gorgeous getting ready photos and then headed to the National Portrait Gallery for an intimate first look before the ceremony at St. Matthews Cathedral. After these two said I do at one of the most iconic churches in the city, they took their families and wedding party down to the DC War Memorial for classic monument wedding portraits. It was then that we headed to their reception venue, the historic National Museum of Women in the Arts, to see the gorgeous reception space designed in hues of cream and dusty blue.
After photographing hundreds of sessions and weddings throughout Washington, DC, traveling through the city doesn’t stress me in the least. Even still, if you told me at the onset that this wedding day would have involved five different spots, I may have advised otherwise. However, KC is one of the most organized brides I’ve ever met and with the help of her AWESOME planning team of A. Griffin Events, we were able to create a near flawless day. Seriously, each and every move went off without a hitch and these two received more photos than I’ve ever delivered thanks to endless portrait time.
I couldn’t think of any place better to submit a classic DC wedding for publication than Washingtonian Weddings. I think it’s a bit of an understatement to say that the entire time was ecstatic to hear that not only was the wedding a good fit for their blog, but that they wanted to put one of the photos on the FRONT COVER of their spring edition of the magazine! Be sure to read through the full feature on their blog here and scroll down for photos of the magazine cover — it’s a beauty; aren’t these two stunning!?
