Erin & Alexei’s Washington, DC Wedding

circle ceremony set up

Erin and Alexei’s Washington, DC wedding at the Carnegie Institution for Science was the perfect blend of elegance and romance! With pale pink and grey hues used in details throughout the day, their wedding was decorated beautifully and made complete with florals from Helen Olivia. One of our favorite moments during the day was Erin and Alexi’s first look. Their excitement and love for one another was evident and Aaron and guest photographer Matt Ryb loved capturing this intimate moment. We also especially loved the grand ceremony site that allowed for guests to sit in a circle surrounding the couple. This intimate celebration officiated by Laura Cannon of Divine Transformation created a special moment for family and friends to support the newlyweds. Enjoy looking through some of our favorite wedding day pictures, we think these images will have you falling head-over-heels in love!
