I am so excited to finally share part one of Bob + Dan’s gorgeous fall Washington National Cathedral wedding and Watergate Hotel reception in October. Their wedding was my first time at both locations and it’s always such a fun creative challenge to photograph a wedding in a new (to me!) space. We started the day at their home in Columbia Heights surrounded by their entire wedding party and immediate family. It was such a fun group and I just love the photographs of the two of them getting ready together. We drove over to the Cathedral early to spend some time in lovely Bishop’s Garden for groom portraits and wedding party photos. Let’s just say it was a teensy bit blustery. Not gale force but definitely windy!
The building itself is simply stunning. And ornate and incredibly beautiful. The ceremony took place in the far back of the Cathedral on the High Altar. Which makes for a very very long walk down the aisle. The ceremony was personal and joyful and a true celebration of Bob + Dan’s relationship. A receiving line followed the ceremony and then since I couldn’t resist, a few more interior wedding day portraits of the two of them before we proceeded to the Watergate for their party. Those photographs and the wedding reception and details will be coming soon!
