Kelly and Roberto were married at Holy Rosary Church in Washington, DC and partied it up like mad at Sequoia Restaurant. I loved their big, boisterous families. And I loved that everybody seemed to mush their names together, so instead of the priest at the church enunciating “Kelly and Roberto”, he just said “kellyroberto” for everything. They’re already the same person. And, Sequoia is an amazing place to shoot. You’ll see in about two seconds how much I loved those dangly blue sparkly things. And, they got a letter from the Pope. It was a big day.
The gentlemen started the day at The Melrose Georgetown…
…while the ladies got prettified at the Ritz-Carlton Georgetown.
Many thanks to Marie for coming out for this one.
It was Rolling Thunder that day, so we made it to the church just in time.
I’ve never seen a couple get a letter from the Pope before.
Roberto’s mother arranged for these awesome fancy old cars to take Kelly and Roberto around the city.
They projected old-timey music out of the back, so we were a rolling party. It turned a lot of heads.
Such a convenient boat painted with Georgetown.
Portraits done, rings on, they headed to Sequoia to dance the night away.
I knew it was going to be a great night when the entire wedding got up and danced like this in-between courses. I’ve also never seen that at a wedding!
I can’t help it. The sparkly things are so sparkly.
Possibly the most hilarious grandpa I’ve photographed. Yes, that is his handicapped placard.
They danced like this all night.
Congratulations, you guys!
