Aimee & Richard: Engaged! | Dumbarton Oaks

I’m so excited for Aimee and Richard’s wedding.  The more I hear about it, the more it sounds exactly like the wedding I was planning with my husband, before we decided to ditch the whole thing and go to Vegas.  They’re going to have s’mores and kegs and mason jar centerpieces… so I’m pretty much going to live vicariously through their day.  They’re getting married at a summer camp, and so wanted to have some outdoorsy, pretty, “nature-y” engagement photos that would fit in well with the rest of their wedding plans.

So we hit up the enchanting Dumbarton Oaks in Georgetown, Washington, DC.

The light on these stairs was amazing!  I have to say, I love stairs.  They’re right up there with benches.

Richard looks particularly dashing here.
