Kate and Andrew had such a great wedding at Woodend Mansion. It was such a gorgeous October day. Check out these super fun photos by Stephen Voss. Its been three years since I’ve seen Kate and Andrew, but I’ll be seeing them in just a few weeks at Kate’s best friend’s wedding, that I’ve had the utter pleasure to work on.

Almost all of their guests were from out of town, and so much of DC was shut down due to the sequestration. But that didn’t stop anyone at Anna and Bryce’s awesome wedding at the Hotel Monaco from having a great time. The night was capped off with a visit to the Red Hook Lobster Truck! Beautiful flowers by Connor Studios.

I don’t even know what number year this is, although I could look it up (#lazy). They have two gorgeous kids now, and no longer live in the area, but I still cherish the awesome memories of their celebration at the Willard, rocked by Onyx and documented by the oh-so-talented Abby Jiu.

Sharing for the first time today another wonderful couple that I was lucky to do wedding day coordination for. Marrying at the lovely Thomas Birkby House in Leesburg, Virginia, they really drew upon their community to bring together their DIY wedding. Photos by the uber-talented Katelyn James. Courtney carried a gorgeous red bouquet by Holly Chapple.

I never really blogged or shared this awesome wedding that I was lucky enough to be the DOC for a few years ago. The celebration took place at Daughters of the American Revolution, one of the best venues in DC. Mary Kate McKenna made the photos and Design Cuisine served wonderful food and drink. The flowers were DIY by the bride’s best friends, including the bouquets!

The Observatory Bellwether Events Torpedo Factory Alexandria VA wedding ceremony reception Petal's Edge

 

This was my “earthquake” couple. We had to move their ceremony location about 16 days before their wedding due to damage from the earthquake at their original ceremony location – the National Cathedral. Luckily, they took it all in stride, their community rallied around them, and we had an amazing ceremony at the chapel at Episcopal High School. Their rocking reception was at the Torpedo Factory.

Happy FIRST Anniversary Kristyn and Eric!

Kristyn and Eric had a touching at-home wedding ceremony at the Ferguson Farm in Purcellville, which has been in Eric’s family for generations. The guests then moved over to a local vineyard to celebrate the couple. Photo by the awesome Laura Ashbrook Photography.
