Anthony & Christopher | Washington DC intimate wedding | Jefferson Memorial

Anthony and Christopher were married steps from Mr. Jefferson, rocking his big, pretty memorial. Don’t get too excited, though – I’m pretty sure you’re not supposed to get married on the memorial itself. But if you’re quick and hide in a corner and don’t bring too many guests, who’s to say you’re not just huddled about looking happy because founding fathers, etc. etc.? Democracy, Monticello, marriage! Anthony and Christopher:

There was literally one tree with any leaves still on it.

I try to make people do “sexy GQ” but I always end up preferring candid and fun.

Ronee & Bill | Arts Club of Washington, DC wedding

Ronee and Bill feel things. You can tell because you can see that shiz plain as day on their faces. Love, joy, admiration, astonishment. They tied the knot at the Arts Club of Washington in a ceremony that can only be described as a production. They have scads of theater friends and so their semi-DIY wedding was a complete triumph of execution, design and performance. And it was fun, too. Ronee and Bill:

We started the day right next door at the Hotel Lombardy.

Then hopped over one so these two lovebirds could say hello. (Also, pause – look at Ronee’s ridiculously pretty dress!)

In the car, on the way to Constitution Gardens – one of my favorite spots to get greenery and water and a quick DC scene without having to travel far.

Yes, this is the National Mall.

Meagan & Joseph | DC courthouse wedding photography | Washington, D.C.

Meagan and Joseph came all the way from Alabama to tie the knot in our nation’s capital. It was a secret wedding for a few days, so they partied it up that weekend with friends unawares. Very romantic. Also, Meagan really knows how to pick a dress.

The DC Courthouse was the scene for our heroes’ big moment.

Then we scooted down to the National Mall for some portrait action. Poor Meagan broke her pinkie toe a little previously, so she had to wear a brace thing.

But we switched it out quickly. My apologies for the stress, pinkie toe!

That dress really did twirl in the most fantastic way.
