With a superb backdrop of a Washington, D.C. art school and gallery around them, this elegant couple has a radiant wedding ceremony and celebration pictured here with love by EyeWonder Photography. As the photographers explain, “We had a million questions about the artwork on the walls [of their home], places they had been… even a story about a rug shared with a friend over the years. Their accomplishments are impressive too, but what stood out to us most was how open and charming they are.” The day gets a great sendoff with the quick note, “You’re getting married today!” on hotel stationery; the bride gets a great start, too, with her hair upswept and her makeup done just-so. The gown is strapless lace and pearls, with a jeweled sash at the waist — and looks especially fetching with a white fur stole.
A junior bridesmaid’s the belle of the ball, practicing her dance steps with Dad, while the couple meet for their sweet “reveal” within view of the Capitol. Processing up the gallery stairs, the bride is veiled and composed, except for a grin she gives one of the guests while coming up the aisle on her father’s arm. Then, amid stately curtains and gold-and-white filigree on the walls, the reception guests are seated for fabulous food and toasts from the bridal party. Seen from above, the first dance of bride and groom is heart-meltingly romantic, ringed in lights from beneath floor panels. Dancing is lively under colored lights, with everyone taking part, until the moment when the happy couple steals away for the beginning of their life together. Great fun, great ambience, and great memories: they’re all here, pictured by EyeWonder.
