Elizabeth + Alex | Hotel Monaco DC

Elizabeth and Alex told us they wanted their day to focus around celebrating with family and friends. For them this meant no stressful timeline, no ‘official’ bridal party and everything in one location. We love being able to focus on connections and moments between all the guests. And while we knew it would be a great party we weren’t expecting to feel the floor slightly bounce from all the high energy and getting-low at the end of the night! It was a privilege to be part of their wedding and see two absolutely genuine and amazing people tie the knot.

Afsaneh + Zahid | Womens of the Arts Museum

I'm going to just put it out there and say we LOVE Persian weddings! Afsaneh and Zahid's wedding was our third one and they've all been equally meaningful, inclusive, emotional and plain ole fun.

It happened to be (officially) the hottest day of year with a heat index of 114 degrees but we were fortunate to only be outside for a few minutes. The day began at the beautiful Marriott Marquis where it was obvious A+Z had the best support group as their family and guests traveled from all over the world for their special day. This is also where they had their first look. We then whisked over the The National Portrait Gallery for... portraits! Our last stop was for the ceremony and reception at The National Museum of Womens in the Arts.

A HUGE thanks to Natalie of Event Design for making the day such a great success!
