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!

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.

That was Francis and Joe's wedding day. But we ducked under some columns and had some fun.

DC people are so nice to just-married couples. DC-same-sex-wedding-courthouse-13 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. Tabard-Inn-wedding-photography-8Tabard-Inn-wedding-photography-2 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. Tabard-Inn-wedding-photography-3 And of course we hit up the fountain.
