Waterfront Park along the Potomac River in Old Town Alexandria, Virginia was a great find for a wedding ceremony. You don’t have the crowds and pedestrian traffic that you get along the boardwalk side, and still have the view of the Potomac River without much obstructions.

I loved how the glow sticks exit turned out, don’t you? This is the second time we’ve used glowsticks successfully at a wedding for a grand exit. Check out this wedding where we used glowsticks and other ideas for exits.
What I remember most about this Washington, DC wedding at the Carnegie Institute of Science, was how happy the couple was the whole day. They couldn’t stop smiling from the minute I saw the bride getting ready until the end of the night. Despite the heat and humidity of a summer day, there was a lot of love and happiness in the air.

Loved this constellation wedding stationery set from Minted
A moody church
I loved the way they looked at each other during the ceremony. Good get, Nat!
Let’s talk about this cake. Ben, the groom, baked this cake himself. Normally, I would strongly discourage a client from baking his own wedding cake but Ben is a seasoned baker. He reassured me that he would practice and he did do several trial runs assembling this cake. Inspired by Lord of the Rings, the cake turned out pretty good! Impressive!
The majestic columns on the portico of the Carnegie Institute always make a beautiful photograph
They looked liked they were haven’t fun dancing, don’t they?
