Becky + Harry were on the hunt for cherry blossoms on their wedding day. Unfortunately due to crazier than usual Washington weather, they’d bloomed and gone so the search was on for a suitable spring-like background for photos. After and first look in the beautiful courtyard of the Fairmont, we headed down to Upper Senate Park where tulips and the hind of the next round of pink blossoms were in the trees. It was such fun hanging with the two of them and their bridal party. And as much as I loved making the portraits at the Capitol it is really the moments from their day that were my favorite photos. The way Harry held Becky tight as they were under the chuppah. The visible relief on their faces when the ceremony was over as they made their way up the aisle. Even the sweet moments right after when they put their rings on their proper fingers. After a rollicking hora the party really got started and felt almost like a great concert. The band Marquise, had everyone dancing around the bandstand and even got the bride and groom up to sing along. The day ran perfectly thanks in large part to Margo Fisher at Bright Occasions who made sure everyone and everything was where it needed to be!
