I want you to picture the most perfect fall day there ever was…think turning leaves, blue skies & just enough chill in the breeze to keep the sweat off your brow. That was exactly what we got for Nathan & Kayla’s beautiful DC wedding day in Navy Yard!!
I could go on and on about their sweet day! It was so, so incredibly special. For starters, they got married in their backyard. Literally!! Kayla & Nathan live in the building that overlooks District Winery, and they watched the venue’s construction from the ground up. It was only fitting that their wedding was the second one EVER at the winery!
Their details and florals and colors were so beyond incredible, but what I thought was really special was the way these two just fell into each other’s arms like no one was even in the room. You can tell that they really are each other’s best friend. They were made for each other. Their families exuded nothing but excitement and pure JOY all day as they celebrated the union of these two! Nathan’s dad was their officiant and performed one of the sweetest ceremonies I have ever been lucky enough to witness. He spoke about Nathan growing up and how Kayla & Nathan are just the perfect match. By the end of it, I think we were all in happy tears! I think the cherry on top of the day was when their sweet pup, Meatball, came for a visit IN A TUX! Now, if you know me well, you know that I am a crazy animal lover. I absolutely love when couples opt to include their fur children on their wedding day. It was sweet as can be to see these three celebrating all of the good that is yet to come! Meatball loved seeing his parents all dressed up just as much as these two loved stealing a few puppy kisses. Now…if all that wasn’t amazing enough, few months back during Kayla and Nathan’s engagement session, Kayla mentioned that they were taking dancing lessons. Oh my goodness…let me tell you, guys!! These lessons paid off like crazy because their first dances was one of the best I’ve ever seen! I am talking dips and twirls and holding each other close. They absolutely rocked it!!
There day was filled with so much love, and I am so excited to see where this new chapter of life takes them! First? Kayla & Nathan are off enjoying some Disney World fun this week!! Enjoy a look into their modern and elegant day!
A special thank you to the team that made it happen!
