Katie and Lane celebrated their nuptials with an elegant December wedding at the Fairmont Hotel in Washington, DC. While the rain may have been muddy from all the winter precipitation in the preceding days, it stopped just as we arrived to the DC War Memorial for their monument portraits. We were even blessed with warmer than average day… well, for December, anyway! Lane wore a classic black tuxedo while Katie donned a timeless Vera Wang gown complete with a pair of polished Badgley Mischka pumps. Even their sweet pup, Cooper, who joined us for a few portraits, sported a black and white bow tie to coordinate with his parents. We wrapped up just before the sun dropped behind the horizon and spent the rest of the evening at the Fairmont for their ceremony and reception.
The entire wedding day was perfectly executed by Kaitlyn with EVOKE, who flawless managed their schedule while simultaneously designing their jaw-dropping reception space. The tables were lined with lush, neutral florals arranged by Alyson with Amaryllis and each setting was accented by an ornate ornament place card as a nod to the season and Katie’s favorite holiday. The hotel provided a stunning 6-tier cake that looked almost too scrumptious to eat. And they even had the amazing Queen City Band up from North Carolina to light up the dance floor floor for their guests.
Katie, I’ll miss our early morning, Type-A e-mailing sessions! I think it’s safe to say all your hard work and planning paid off! I hope the two of you are enjoying some of the highlights across Asia and I cannot wait to see photos from your latest adventure!
A huge thank you to these vendors for making Katie & Lane’s wedding amazing! And to Rebekah Emily Photography for being an awesome second shooter!
