Another wedding blog post this week?! You bet, friend! This weekend was busy in the BEST way possible, and today, I’m SO excited to share Allie and Bryant’s gorgeous DC wedding day with you!
Their wedding day was nothing short of perfection. If you’ve spent any amount of time around DC the last couple of weeks, you may know that it has been unseasonably WARM! Friday was freezing cold— hovering just under 40 degrees all day long! Because of that, I was a little worried about what Saturday might bring, but when I stepped outside and found a gorgeous, sunny day that was warm enough to be outside in just a cardigan, I knew we were in for a TREAT of a day. And? That’s just what we got! Their wedding day was one for the books!
Allie and Bryant are two of the most genuine and kind souls… they’re the kind of people that you feel comfortable with upon meeting them for the first time, they put others first, love their families fiercely, are intelligent and thoughtful, and surround themselves with amazing people. They are so good with words… making me giggle in the BEST way with each email they sent me throughout the planning process. Even more than that though, you can tell that what they have together is so incredibly special. They are each the other’s rock— their person. One of my favorite parts of photographing first looks is seeing any wedding day jitters that couples had just moments before turn to pure excitement the moment they embrace for the first time, and that’s just what happened with these two. They were SO excited to officially become the other’s spouse…. sharing many happy tears and sweet moments throughout their day. I don’t know if I’ve ever seen a couple get so teary during their ceremony… it was so special to capture these moments for them and their families.
I am SO excited for you to get a peek into Allie & Bryant’s black and blush mid-century modern inspired wedding day at District Winery! Not only was their wedding day the sweetest, uniting two incredible people as husband and wife, but it was SO much fun from start to finish. Their wedding day design was absolutely gorgeous, too! (Peonies in February?! Count me in!)
Ready for all the pretty and sweetness?!
