Newseum wedding photography | Washington, DC

Sometimes, when you've been together forever, the big wedding with traditional events and plated dinner just seems off. These two chose to celebrate their union in a very different way - with the most intimate ceremony possible (that is still photographed), followed a month later by a huge party for all their friends and family. A massive shout-out to their brilliant planner Vicky with Event Accomplished who helped them turn the Newseum from a conference center with great views into a rockin' nightclub with fantastic food. And, guys, for real, we got to shoot in the Newseum after hours: Newseum-wedding-washington-dc-10 These two got their marriage on elsewhere, but brought it on home for the party, so we had to do some photos by the Capitol.

It's a great space on its own, but they transformed it into a brilliant lounge. Newseum-wedding-washington-dc-8 And then we got to take photos inside, with no tourists, and free reign over exhibits. Yessss. Newseum-wedding-washington-dc-9 You all know I'm not much for the stoic bride and groom, but when you're standing in front of the Berlin Wall, it just seems appropriate.
