The Washington, DC wedding season is usually broken up into three parts: spring, which is from April-May, summer, which is June-July, and fall, which is September-November. Sure, there will be a handful of weddings in the other months, but those are the peak season given the weather. This August, I didn’t have a single wedding which was a nice time to catch up on things that fall by the wayside April – July; when I’m busy shooting, I just focus on giving my client’s the best experience possible which includes getting their galleries out as soon as possible! But seeing as I was off all August, I took care of submitting quite a few of those spring and summer weddings I had just shot and I am so excited to share the first one that was featured over on one of my favorite local blogs, United With Love!
Chris and Michelle’s Carnegie Institution for Science wedding was a classically DC affair — think stunning, white stone architecture complete with lush florals and a neutral color palette. I absolutely loved photographing this showstopper and knew it would be a huge inspiration for other like-minded brides and grooms getting married in the District of Columbia. Christina, of Happily Hitched Events, ensured that the entire wedding day went off without a hitch (pun intended =P). And with gorgeous greenery and floral designs at every turn by my favorite, Yen of Chic Girl Flowers, you know the rooms were over-the-top gorgeous!
