Yuliya & AJ | Arts Club of Washington wedding | Washington, DC

Yuliya and AJ were married at the always-colorful, always charming Arts Club of Washington. They flew in for less than a week (!) of visiting and last-minute things and pre-wedding stuff, before jetting back on a plane to Australia (where they live and work). They filled the Arts Club with one day of boundless laughter, a playful wedding party and, of course, shots. Yuliya and AJ:

We started the day at the Hotel Lombardy, which I highly recommend to anyone having a wedding at the Arts Club – it’s literally next door.

Yuliya wore a fabulous dress with a flouncy mermaid bottom (yes, I’m so suave with the dress name things).

Because we could, we did first look in the courtyard at the Arts Club.

I was very lucky to have the talented Ayesha along for the ride.

Lafayette Park made a great backdrop for us to soak up some fall color, play in the beautiful afternoon winter light and even nab a we’re-standing-in-front-of-the-White-House photo (not shown, because… no).

Don’t you just love that perfect braid in her hair?

Family formals done, sun set, it was go time at the Arts Club.

This is almost certainly the first time I’ve blogged two first kiss photos – I just also love Ayesha’s.
