Joyzeline & Ed | Carlyle House gardens | Old Town Alexandria intimate wedding | Virginia

Joyzeline and Ed were married under threat of rain storms, but no rain storms appeared. Instead, they had lots of smiling faces, some serious blossom action in Old Town Alexandria and quirky street scenes. Their family and friends gathered at the Carlyle House gardens to watch these two tie the knot. Joyzeline and Ed:

Oh, just me being weird. Ed’s dad had to take a sneeze.

And then we made the fam go get cocktails while we took a stroll through the Carlyle gardens.

And wandered into greater Old Town for some yellow door and blossom action.

Joyzeline was kind enough to play along for this one and turn her jacket inside out.

And finally, the newlyweds (ok, just Joyzeline) enjoyed a pre-cake cake at Lavender Moon.

Miranda & Josh | Mexican Cultural Institute wedding | Washington, DC

Miranda and Josh got married at the resplendent (that’s a new word on this blog!) Mexican Cultural Institute last month, amid scads of friends and family and minus frills and buffet seating and white dresses. These two threw exactly the party they wanted with all the things they needed – good food and drink, lots of folks, an amazing venue and none of the fuss. Miranda and Josh:

Miranda skipped a giant white fluffy dress for this elegant azure number.

The Mexican Cultural Institute has these amazing murals in the stairwell, echoing the Federal Buildings in Mexico City. When we met before the wedding to walk through the venue, I was floored (walled?).

And the rest of the house is really sweet too – that’s an organ on the right!

Allison & David | DC courthouse wedding

Allison and David got hitched at the DC courthouse, amidst a small but joyful group of family and friends. It was a balmy 27* out, so we skipped the outdoors as much as possible and instead hit up the National Gallery’s modern wing, where they have been reinstalling a couple artworks I missed. These two enjoy a good “street” scene, so I concocted a few for them, with the help of the tourists.

I shoot at this museum a lot, so sometimes it’s hard to think of new things to do in the space. But we took some new angles for these two.

A quick jaunt in the classical side.

This girl seemed to have no idea there was a photo shoot happening on either side of her. Modern, right?
