Jennifer + David | Married! | A W Hotel Washington DC Wedding

Where to start with these two!?  Jennifer is a long time client.  I cannot express how much I admire this smart, talented, caring and beautiful woman!  She is always giving to those in need, whether its people or animals, is thoughtful in her parenting and successful in her professional life.  She’s the whole package and a total catch!  I was so happy when I found out she had found her perfect mate in David and learned of their upcoming wedding.  I was even happier when they chose me to document it!  I’m not exaggerating when I say I truly felt honored to shoot this wedding.  It was not only to join Jennifer and David, but also their kids, into one family unit–a kind of wedding that is near and dear to my heart.

The couple was married at the W Hotel in Washington DC at the height of the cherry blossom season.  It was a beautiful, albeit crowded day in the city.  Braving the crowds in the hotel, we made it up to the rooftop lounge for one of my favorite first looks ever.  They reserved the bar area for us, and we had the gorgeous backdrop of the Washington Monument through the picture windows.  I love, love, love the portraits we did up there.  With the heavy crowds, we stayed close to the hotel,  but were able to get some beautiful natural light portraits at the park across the street.

The ceremony and reception were held in the hotel.  Jennifer’s son walked her down the aisle, and I don’t think there was a dry eye in the place.  The ceremony was heartfelt and emotional, an edit felt to me that the energy there was really changed after the family was officially united.  The reception was filled with an outpouring of support for the couple by all the friends and family in attendance, but especially by Jennifer’s strong group of girlfriends. It was truly awesome to see this group of women supporting her, David and the kids.  I left this wedding feeling somehow lighter, even though I was 6 months pregnant at the time!

Congratulations Jennifer and David!  It was such a pleasure documenting your day and witnessing your new beginning.
