If a little rain is good luck on your wedding day (and it is–it rained on mine!) then Alyssa + Caleb should be good for a long time. Overall it was a rainy day at the Army and Navy Club in downtown Washington DC over Labor Day weekend for their wedding. Thank goodness the club is lovely with it’s curved staircase and dramatic chandeliers. We just worked inside until a last minute clearing allowed us out for some fun photos.
I love photographing a couple in downtown DC on a weekend. Midtown is pretty deserted and there’s a lot of fun nooks and crannies to explore for fun backgrounds. Unfortunately we couldn’t use some of the locations I’d scouted but stay tuned for fun end of the night photo taken just around the corner from the club!
Alyssa’s style was just so elegant. Simple and classic, her dress was tailored perfectly and I loved how unfussy she chose to be on her wedding day. Caleb was so elegant in his classic tuxedo. The photos of the two of them on the main stairs in the club were just so clean and simple and yet stunning. The blush of the flowers and the bridesmaids dresses were a perfect compliment to the clean lines of the day.
Alyssa was all smiles getting ready to see Caleb at their first look. The laughter and a few tears were there from early in the day and continued through their ceremony (see that in the next installment) and low key reception.
