Mara & Rich | Carlyle House wedding | Athenaeum | Old Town Alexandria

Mara and Rich were married at the always-beautiful Carlyle House in Old Town Alexandria and held a lovely reception at the Athenaeum, just a few blocks away. They brought all their friends and family for great food, fun music and more laughs than you can shake a stick at. © 2015 Amber Wilkie Photography | www.amberwilkie.com We started the day at Hotel Monaco Alexandria - a perennial favorite for its cool art and funky fabrics and such. Always fun to shoot there. © 2015 Amber Wilkie Photography | www.amberwilkie.com© 2015 Amber Wilkie Photography | www.amberwilkie.com© 2015 Amber Wilkie Photography | www.amberwilkie.com© 2015 Amber Wilkie Photography | www.amberwilkie.com© 2015 Amber Wilkie Photography | www.amberwilkie.com© 2015 Amber Wilkie Photography | www.amberwilkie.com I love this photo of all of Mara's ladies cracking up. © 2015 Amber Wilkie Photography | www.amberwilkie.com We stole a few minutes pre-ceremony to sneak down to the lobby and take some photos.
