E & V were married at the end of February at the Old Post Chapel in Arlington, VA. After a quick stop in the District for photos at the iconic monuments, they celebrated amongst friends and family later that evening at the Army Navy Country Club. This was one of my first weddings since the majority of the mandates have been lifted and I cannot tell you how nice to felt to have a bit of normalcy after two years of everything feeling anything but normal.
Weather for a winter wedding in Washington, DC is unpredictable, to say the least. On a whole, February had been surprisingly mild and remained that way for E & V’s big day. It by no means felt like spring, but just nice enough that the bridesmaids could be comfortable shooting portraits with bare arms at the DC War Memorial. We also took a quick trip up to the Lincoln to grab a few additional photos before sunset.
The glowing light was hitting the monument just right and since it was the off season, the space never felt too overwhelming for E &V with tourists. I’ve gotten used to the crowds over the past decade of photographing wedding in DC, but I know that my couples are mostly new to this, so I try to keep them off the beaten path as much as possible! The result? Some majorly stunning photographs that I cannot wait to share with you below! Enjoy!
A huge thank you to these vendors for making Emily & Vince’s wedding amazing! And to Rebekah Emily Photography for being an awesome second shooter!
