Danielle + Tom // Alexandria Virginia Wedding

Oh, just an absolutely perfect wedding for your perusal today!
//
It’s so exciting to see two people with real passion for each other! Danielle and Tom are MFEO (made for each other—Sleepless in Seattle, anyone? No? Just me? …moving on…)

Let’s start with Tome. Tom is a total sweetheart. Since the minute the three of us met, every time he looked at Danielle he was absolutely beaming with joy! Their engagement session went so awesomely well that the long 6-month wait til their wedding nearly killed me.

On to the wedding!

The ceremony took place at Blessed Sacrament Church, which is a gorgeous Catholic church in Northern Virginia. Afterwards the bridal party and I endured sub-freezing temperatures for epic portraits in Old Town Alexandria!

I love it when a couple incorporates their gifts into their wedding day. One of Danielle’s gifts is that she is an amazing vocalist, so she sang to Tom at the reception! I was totally blown away by how beautiful her voice is. They also had a curated karaoke party section during their reception (AWESOME). Since Danielle is one of The Alexandria Singers, naturally a bunch of the guests were incredibly talented singers as well, and a few of them sang songs for the couple and the rest of the wedding guests to get down to! Before the party was over, we ventured out into the freeze again for some incredible night portraits. Thank you, D + T, for the opportunity to be there with you!

It’s easy to see why these two are a perfect match. See for yourself below!

Serena + Jenson // Richmond Virginia Wedding

Ever since their engagement session a few months ago I counted the days to Serena + Jenson's wedding!  They are such an incredible, fun couple and I knew it would be amazing.  The gorgeous ceremony was at Tuckahoe Plantation just outside of Richmond, with a reception at Urban Roost, an offshoot of Supper! which is one of my favorite Richmond restaurants!

A couple highlights to look out for: Epic tree-lined outdoor ceremony, Serena + Jenson's dog Ricky makes another glorious appearance, 1000-year old farm cat doing whatever she wanted during the ceremony, King of Pops vibes at cocktail hour, giant jenga fails, hula-hooping wins, and lots of portrait time!

Congratulations you two!  On to the photos:

Katie + Jorge // Washington DC Wedding

...what to say about the couple who has everything?

//

Katie and Jorge are two peas in a ridiculous pod.

Both of them have the amazing ability to warm up any room just by being in it, and Katie's smile always brings a smile to my face too.  Full disclosure: a LOT of my close friends were at this wedding, being crazy, and making it one of the most fun and epic weddings I've ever shot.  After the wedding at Catholic University Chapel, everybody scooted over to Glen Echo for carousel rides, an uncountable amount of cookies, and dancing the night away.  The evening was punctuated by beautiful speeches, me sneaking the lucky couple out for night portraits as often as possible, and all of the guests dance-fighting over rights to stand in front of the well-placed giant dancefloor fan, which undoubtedly averted a string of heatstroke-related injuries.

I cannot explain how happy I am to show off these beautiful people doing crazy things like getting married, so I'll stop here and let the photos do the talking!
