Starting the Wedding Season

I know, it's a crazy title to a blog considering it's mid June.  But, with the craziness of the season, I am left to start catching up on the beginning now.  I have never had a wedding washout, but this may be the closest I have come.  Back in 2008, Ali and Chris faced flooding in the district, but the rain stopped and the skies cleared before the bride left the hotel.

Lissette and Todd were slightly less lucky, as they, along with their wedding parties had to pile into the limo as I held not one, but two umbrellas overhead.  I think I started out that day with my hair up.

But the rain did not stand in the way of their love and by the time the bride stepped out of the limo and into the church, the rain had passed.

Following a ceremony presided over by the wonderful John Wimberly at the Church of the Holy City on 16th Street, the couple and their guests made their way to the Corcoran Gallery of Art for an event of dancing fun.

Design Cuisine catered a fabulous dinner while decor and flowers were provided by John Duffy of Yellow Door and Digital Lightning.  DJ Andres kept the dance floor packed and guests were entertained by the new wave of photo booth, some of you may recall my post immediately following the wedding, Boxi.

The couple ended their evening with a DC evening photo shoot with none other than Jenny Lehman.

Lissette and Todd, thank you for making me part of your special day!
