Virginia and Jordan were married in a short and sweet ceremony at the lovely little Bon Air Park in Arlington, Virginia. They gathered up their nearest and dearest and the local rabbi to make things official and tied that knot, rose-garden style. Jordan was the first on the scene. Family assembled, it was go time at the trellis. It was a little chilly that morning, but you couldn't have asked for better sunlight. Congratulations, you guys!
Alyssa and Matt were married last month at the Josephine Butler Parks Center, amid a flurry of proud dads, orange roses and under a hand-crocheted chuppah. These two are some of the sweetest clients I've ever had the pleasure of working with and that was reflected throughout the day - in the warm and loving faces of their friends and family as they did the damn thing, DC-style. We started the day at Hotel Palomar for laughs, hugs and clouds of hairspray. Thanks to Tim for coming out to work this wedding with me. He got to hang with the guys. While two merging families got a little closer. Then we all got in the cars and made it to Meridian Hill Park for these two to see each other all dolled up. Portraits wrapped, we all headed inside to avoid any raindrops and wait for the big moment. Yichud guards. More laughs and just a few tears... ...and it was dancing time. My favorite thing in the entire wedding world: the hora. Especially daring in chairs without arms! Congratulations, you guys!

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! 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!
