Jennifer & Kevin’s Wedding

On Saturday, Jennifer and Kevin tied the knot is a spectacular winter ceremony at the Willard Hotel in Washington, DC. I have been looking forward to this wedding all year because: 1) Jenny + Kevin are two of the sweetest people you could ever imagine meeting! 2) It was our first wedding with Ashlee Virginia Events (who I adore!) and 3) It was also our first wedding with Holly Chapple! (I’ve been following Holly’s creative artistry for years and she is an icon in the floral design industry!) — Oh, and did I mention that this was our LAST Wedding of the year?

So you can imagine how excited we were to capture one of our favorite weddings of 2014 in a spectacular location for a truly amazing couple! It was simply perfect! Jennifer wore a spectacular Mori Lee gown and her bridesmaids rocked glam dresses from Rent the Runway that looked incredible with their bouquets! We were mesmerized by every moment of their ceremony + loved running around at night for portraits around the Willard Hotel! And when an 80’s Cover Band revved up the reception, I still could not believe that this was our ending to a truly spectacular year!

Congratulations Jenny & Kevin! I adore you both and I’m so excited to share a few of my favorites on the blog today!
