Joe & Francis | DC courthouse wedding | 701 Restaurant | Washington

Joe and Francis were married last week at the DC courthouse with scads of jubilant friends and family. These two decided to tie the knot shortly before leaving on vacation and planned the whole thing abroad, from a cruise ship. In something like a week and a half. If they could pull that off, marriage should be a piece of cake.

You remember that day last week it dumped rain? That was Francis and Joe’s wedding day. But we ducked under some columns and had some fun.

And then a girl poked her head out of the door there and asked us if we wanted to go to the roof and do some photos on the patio! Um, yes please! DC people are so nice to just-married couples.

Quick portrait shoot a wrap, we scooted over to 701 Restaurant for a lovely cocktails-and-hors d’oeuvres reception.

Kevin & John | Tabard Inn wedding | Washington, DC

John and Kevin came all the way from Texas to tie the knot in Dupont Circle at the Tabard Inn, surrounded by their closest. The ceremony was short and sweet and had wine. Plus, it was hard to take a bad picture of these two.

After a few (admittedly staged) getting-ready photos, we took a quick spin through the hotel. It’s a nice old place with lots of interesting nooks and crannies.

And of course we hit up the fountain.

Oh, come on, I have to do the GQ thing every once in a while.

But not for long, of course.

Their reception was an intimate affair with good food and good people. And cute babies that make monkey faces.

Leslie & Katie | Stacy Sherwood Community Center wedding | Fairfax, VA

Katie and Leslie met at a Buffy the Vampire Slayer convention and they were gracious enough not to discuss the last few episodes I had yet to watch when I met them and have subsequently finished (and scoffed at – seriously, the whole town?). They also had a grilled cheese bar at their wedding with something like five bread options, seven cheese options and eight topping options. And, they’re adorable. Leslie and Katie:

We started the day at the Hilton McLean Tysons Corner. I have shot here a ton of times – they apparently have really great room and block rates, y’all.  The Alison Harper & Co. team rocked out hair and makeup.

Then we scooted over to Episcopal Church of the Holy Cross. Leslie is an episcopal priest, so she knows a whole bunch of other priests and basically everyone up on the altar with them was a close friend or, you know, a sister.
