Washinton DC Wedding at St. Francis Hall | Drew + Taylor

 

It was a pleasure photographing this beautiful couple! These two were high school sweethearts! :) The wedding day was filled with love and joy! His brother was his Best Man, but couldn’t make to the wedding because he was deployed. So a unique thing that they did, was to make a cut out board of him!! hahah so clever right? ;) Also what a beautiful venue to get married in!

Amanda & Jordan’s wedding day in the West Virginia mountains was what dreams are made of & working with them has been a dream as well! From consultation to their wedding day Amanda knew exactly what she wanted and had this calm approach to wedding planning. Maybe because she is an event designer or that she was being distracted by the show “The Bachelorette” (haha we were all so happy to see that we each were avid watchers and predictors of the show. Fun-fact: Jordan has predicted the last 2-3 seasons’ outcomes perfectly), but whatever it was we loved that this beautiful bride kept calm all the way through!

Everything about their wedding was all done by those they love. Their greenhouse like reception venue was built by Amanda’s family, and my God! it is absolutely beautiful there!! They got married inside her childhood church. Her wedding gown was made by her aunt, designs were all done by her and her work colleagues, and so pretty much everything else was made or done by others they love.

Their wedding theme was shades of blue with a touch of gold, and my goodness was this theme perfectly executed! From her bridesmaids dusty blue dresses, to the groomsmen navy blue suits, to the blue & gold accents through out her reception venue.

We honestly can go on forever gushing over how stunning and perfect these two are, or how gorgeous their wedding day was. But our biggest take away from everything, is how in love these two really are and how loved they are by those around them.

Amanda and Jordan we are sure you have heard this a million times, but we will say it again. You two are perfect for each other! it has been such a pleasure being a part of your wedding process & day! We only hope to blessed by more amazing couples like you two! We wish you both nothing but love and laughter throughout your marriage & we pray that God continues to bless and guide you two for the rest of your lives together!

PS. We can’t wait to see if Jordan’s predictions for this years bachelorette was right too! :)

You've probably come across this beautiful couple's engagement session blog in rock creek park already. Therefore its already been established that this couple is not only beautiful but adorably sweet with one another (If you haven't read their engagement blog yet, you're definitely missing out, but no worries we got you covered and you can view it first by clicking  this link:). But please believe us when we say that nothing could have prepared us for the emotion filled, love centered, laidback wedding day these two had. 

Remember in the engagement blog when we said Sterling's approach to her wedding was hitting the easy-button on her wedding day. Their entire wedding day felt just like that, in the best way possible! We cant describe how relaxed we felt. Their wedding day started with sterling and her closet friends getting ready with her in her suite at the Kimpton Mason & Rook Hotel. When we opened the door to Sterling's suite we immediately felt all the good and chilled vibes coming our way. Maybe it was the champagne or the good vibes music they had playing, but whatever it was, helped set the tone for the day. While I (Anna) was photographing the bride and her friends toasting to the good life and getting ready, Liz was at Joseph's apartment photographing him and his closest friends helping him get ready and pose as the GQ insider he looked like.  

When they were done getting ready Sterling met up with Joseph on the top deck where they had their first look.  After the first look everyone headed to the War Memorial in Washington DC for their wedding ceremony, where they along with 100 of their closets friends and family gathered around and witnessed them promise forever to each other. As soon as their ceremony ended, the sun began to set,so we quickly pulled them aside one last time for them enjoy their first sunset as husband and wife together, and it was amazing! We then headed over to Agora Restaurant in Washington dc where they had their epic reception and danced the night away with their loved ones! *Can still hear Macklemore & Ryan Lewis- Can't Hold us-FEAT Ray Dalton* It was an amazing day and we thoroughly enjoyed every single part of it! We hope you enjoy viewing this blog! :)
