Will and Emily’s wedding combined traditional Jewish elements with fun, personalized nods to the couple. Emily made the escort cards herself (paper flowers!) and other fun touches included a candy buffet with their favorite treats and the cake topper (wedding versions of their favorite Mario Kart characters!).
Our wedding was held at a gorgeous hall that is owned by a Franciscan monastery, which has little details that make it look like a medieval church (in the middle of Washington D.C.!). My husband collects swords, so our cocktail hour featured friends from the HEMA Alliance (the society for Historical European Martial Arts) performing a demonstration of sword fighting through the ages.
If you’re planning a Washington DC wedding, we’ve got the inclusive, offbeat-minded wedding photographer for you. We fell hard for Erika Nizborski when we saw that she was all about equality, embracing what makes you unique, and had her own offbeat wedding (so she totally gets it!). Her documentary style will tell the whole story of your day with tear-jerking candids and little funny, meaningful moments you’d never have found otherwise. It’s my favorite kind of photography style.
Lauren and Ryan’s wedding was fun, energetic, and a true reflection of them. There was a ton of dancing (don’t miss the shots of their choreographed family dance!), sneakers in place of dress shoes, fun catering stations like a taco bar and Asian bar, and donuts for dessert. Ryan is the drummer of the Grammy nominated band, SOJA, so they had “all access passes” made as a nod to their love for music.
We wanted something small that fit us, but could also include our children and family. We didn't want to just run off to the courthouse. We wanted it to be simple and stress-free. We bounced ideas of locations back and forth. Maggie from Pop! Wed Co. suggested the “LOVE” mural at Blagden Alley. We were in DC for New Years so we checked it out and fell in love with it.
My wife and I originally met through our university's Metal Club, so it was only natural that we have a metal-themed wedding to celebrate the style of music that brought us together. The venue was the bottom floor of a yacht that does lunch/dinner cruises, which we chose to both reflect our desire to have both a classy affair and a mark our viking voyage in life as wife and wife.
