It was such treat to be a part of Courtney & Craig’s wedding in Washington, DC at the Newseum (a museum celebrating News)! They’re not only such a sweet couple, but they also love to ski (we hit it off quickly over our shared love of skiing). Courtney and Craig met while on a ski trip to Snowshoe Mountain, West Virginia with co-workers. They both worked at the same company but had never actually spoken before fate brought them together. During their first ski run down the mountain, they happened to lose the rest of their group, but lucky for them they hit it off and a beautiful romance started! Four years later, Craig proposed to Courtney while on a romantic ski trip to Salt Lake City, Utah. It couldn’t have been more perfect! Much like their proposal, their wedding was amazing! Courtney and Craig started with a beautiful wedding ceremony at the Holy Trinity Catholic Church in Georgetown. Courtney’s father surprised Courtney with a Rolls Royce which transported them to the church.  It was quite the grand entrance!  Courtney and Craig then had a chance to spend quality time together in the vintage Rolls Royce, on their ride to the Newseum.  The Newseum was the perfect venue, with amazing views of multiple great D.C. Monuments including the Capitol Building & Washington Monument. We loved having the opportunity to capture their day as Washington D.C. wedding photographers and wish Courtney & Craig all the best in life & marriage!

Courtney and her bridesmaids started off the day getting ready at the Park Hyatt Hotel in Washginton D.C.  We thought it was so special that she had her mother included in her wedding party as a Matron of Honor!

Tricia and Cody had a beautiful and elegant fall vineyard wedding at Trump Winery in Charlottesville, Virginia.  It was a beautiful 75 degree day with the sun shining and fall colors at their peak! Tricia and Cody first met while Cody was attending a bachelor party in San Diego, California where she lived.  After weeks of chatting, Cody took Tricia on their first official date to Kettner Exchange, and they’ve been inseparable ever since!  We cherished spending our day with this couple, their friends and family, and wish them a lifetime of happiness!

Tricia’s first look with her dad was priceless.  Everyone in the bridal suite including the bridesmaids got choked up.  We loved witnessing the father/daughter relationship between Tricia and her father.

During Cody’s four vows to Tricia, he got down on one knee talking about his best day ever! It was very cute, and you can probably guess the rest from there!

As the sun was setting Tricia and Cody had the opportunity to have a few moments to themselves while their guests were at cocktail hour.  We just love the purple hints of the sky and the fall reflections in the lake in front of the Pavilion.
