Over the years, I’ve photographed hundreds couples throughout the Washington, DC region and I can honestly say each and every couple has their own unique style. Sure, many have similarities which I think is what attracts them to my photography style, but every love story and session is true to who they are as a duo. One thing I loved so much about Melissa and Jake is that they were unabashedly in love; I could sense it from the moment I met them and it was clear throughout their entire wedding day at District Winery.
It was also clear in their wedding details — they included so much color that you couldn’t help but feel joyful at their celebration! It was as if their love took form in everything around them, including their vibrant, yet elegant wedding colors and decor. Their talented team at Roberts & Co. pulled it off flawlessly with the help of Emily from Love Blooms DC.
I was thrilled to find out that their wedding would be featured on the popular blog, Carats & Cake. I knew their unique details would bring inspiration to other couples looking to add color to their day in a timeless fashion. To recap a few: Melissa donned a fabulous pair of Jimmy Choo heels that were complete with the most perfect pearl and floral details imaginable. And their invitation suite, created by Momental Designs, featured a custom watercolor painting of their stunning waterfront venue, District Winery in Washington, DC. Finally, I, of course, cannot forget their 12-foot floral chandelier that was hanging over the head table at their reception — guests literally stopped in awe of the beautiful centerpiece!
