Anastasia & Nick | Longview Gallery wedding | Washington, DC

Ah, Anastasia and Nick.  Teachers (up until recently), NYC dwellers (up until recently), Harvard attendees, book lovers, foodies.  They threw a pretty kick-ass wedding - at a rad gallery/event space, with beautiful decor and a bar custom-built for their wedding, tasty tasty foods and more love and happiness than you can shake a stick at, if you were one for shaking a stick at love and happiness.  Plus, joy of joys, they arranged for us to do formal pictures inside the Smithsonian American Art Museum.  (How do I keep having clients that are into portraits at museums?  Because I really, really love doing them at modern art museums.)  You love this couple too, right?  How could you not. smithsonian art museum photographer amber wilkie Anastasia and her girls got ready at the Hotel Monaco.  I really dig how the Monaco plays with fabrics and patterns.  So did this stuffed pig. wedding dress with childhood stuffed animal mother of the bride looks on as daughter gets her hair done getting ready at the washington dc hotel monaco Anastasia carried simple white roses and her bridesmaids had these fantastic green things from Amaryllis. pink manolo blahniks and green bridesmaid bouquet bride gets her makeup done bride reflected in a mirror while she has her makeup done Rockin' to some old-school jams. bride and her cousin dancing before the wedding And bein' gorgeous.  A girl can do both. hotel monaco wedding washington dc Then we scooted across the street to rock out the Smithsonian National Portrait Gallery and American Art Museum. bride and groom portraits in washington dc wedding portraits at the national portrait gallery portraits at the american art museum bridal portraits at the smithsonian american art museum This is like like 50% more portraits than I ever show.  Suck it up - this was awesome. artistic, creative bride and groom portraits  washington dc wedding photographer amber wilkie funky modern art wedding portraits wedding portraits in the washington dc smithsonian museum bride and groom portraits at the national portrait gallery Then it was go time. wedding processional at longview gallery wedding at longview gallery in washington, dc wedding ceremony at longview gallery wedding ceremony moment at longview gallery beautiful moment during wedding ceremony at longview gallery recessional at longview gallery wedding hugging after wedding ceremony at longview gallery hugging after wedding ceremony in washington, dc congratulations after wedding ceremony at longview gallery Longview Gallery was such an awesome place to shoot.  I loved playing with the art and how clean the space was otherwise. longview gallery wedding venue in washington, dc Amaryllis and the team at Ritzy Bee Events did a beautiful job with the decor.  Anastasia and Nick are big foodies, so they had farm tables with edible plants and rustic touches. decorations by amarylis at longview gallery wedding decor by amarylis and ritzy bee Wedding photographers.  They are always trying to make your life harder!  But you can get them back by posting their photo-bombing on the internet for all to see.  Nice work, Sarah. sarah photobombing me at longview wedding wedding toasts at longview gallery in washington, dc maid of honor gives a speech at longview gallery wedding washington, dc wedding photojournalism at longview gallery I would never have used this word before Spencer's workshop, but this wedding had more than one beautiful palette. wedding as art at longview gallery, washington dc macro shot of rings on tomato plant A couple after my own heart.  No cake, just lots of pie. pie cutting during wedding reception dancing at the longview gallery wedding reception The real purpose for mason jars, amiright? pouring campagne into mason jars at the longview gallery wedding bride dancing at the longview gallery wedding father of the bride dance in washington, dc wedding reception dancing with her stepfather at the longview gallery wedding mother of the groom dance at longview gallery wedding dance party at longview gallery wedding hugging during the wedding reception at longview gallery Rockin' out with DJ Atticus. bride and maid of honor rockin' with the dj at longview gallery wedding longview gallery wedding dance party dancing at the wedding reception Woo!  Congratulations you two!  It was a great pleasure to document your wedding.
