Rich and Sean got married on a boat. If I remember the speech correctly, the “biggest, gayest boat in all of Washington, DC.” The party did not disappoint! The ever-fabulous Cassidy DuHon had me out to second shoot this wild and crazy and very emotional event and then I took over for the dancing. You’ll notice that I’m posting far far too many dancing shots. Deal with it.
The ceremony and reception took place on the Odyssey cruise boat, which was a pretty sweet venue, if you ask me.
Rich & Sean got ready at the nearby Hampton Inn at National Harbor. We did all the normal formal stuff but I really like this little guy. He was not feeling the pictures.
This crazy line of storms rolled in just before the ceremony started. Halfway through, it absolutely dumped rain on the boat. It made for a very epic vow exchange!
I’m pretty sure every single person at the wedding gave both Rich and Sean a huge bear hug after the ceremony. These families were so sweet and so loving.
Rich and Sean’s first dance, which they obviously worked on quite a bit before the debut at the wedding.
Mother-son first dance.
And, of course, the aforementioned dancing. I was promised this would be a crazy party and it was a crazy awesome party. Everybody on this boat knew how to cut a rug!
And there were fireworks. Sure they were, in theory, the regular weekend fireworks at the National Harbor, but from the boat it completely seemed as though they were just for Rich and Sean.
And this, my friends, is the famous (well, certainly famous on this blog) Cassidy.
The DJ played YMCA. Everybody seemed to think this would be completely cheesy and wrong before it came on, and then they all threw their arms up in the air anyway.
Congratulations, you guys! It was such a pleasure to be at and photograph your wedding.
