Jennifer and Aric had a swinging time (forgive me!) at their beautiful, purple wedding at Top of the Town in Arlington. So you know how in a lot of weddings there’s that one older couple that can really cut a rug and take over the dance floor and they’re totally awesome? Every couple at Jennifer and Aric’s wedding was like that, because these two are talented swing dancers. And there was Rubik’s Cube cake. J&A:
We started the day at Le Meridien in Arlington, which happens to have a big, lovely patio for first looks and family photos and things. Thanks, as always, to Julia for hanging with the boys.
Not gonna lie, Jennifer’s grandmother was a bit of a show-stealer.
She had competition too.
A few portraits by the Netherlands Carillon before we rolled up for the big event.
Julia had to sneak in some side doors to grab this one.
The view. It’s a quality view.
In serious contention for raddest cocktail hour ever, Jennifer and Aric’s included a swing dance lesson from Sue and Gary.
The hora morphed into kung fu action dance, one of Aric’s passions.
When all your friends are baller dancers, the game of pass-the-bride looks a lot more professional.
Julia doing her thing and Jennifer doing hers.
These two got married on Jennifer’s parents’ 45th wedding anniversary, so the kids put together a special treat.
Congratulations you guys!
