Although there weren’t any actual woolly mammoths present for this December wedding — they’re extinct, remember — the venue is the Woolly Mammoth Theatre, an artistic location in Penn Quarter in downtown Washington, D.C., pictured here in ornate splendor by EyeWonder Photography. The weather cooperates, with cool rather than cold temperatures that allow the bride and groom to have lovely outdoor shots; the bride arrives gowned and scarved, her blue shoes bright against the pavement and her maids’ dresses a perfect color match (as are the groomsmen’s silk vests and bow ties). The “reveal” is both fun and sentimental, including a romantic sunset shot against city stairs. Even the theatre is dressed for the occasion, with evergreen-accented white candles and bouquets of carnations, berries, and pine cones.

Flanked by tall feathery plants, the couple says their vows onstage, then filters through the “audience” outside the theater for hugs and toasts. With hands clasped, guests begin with a circle dance, then branch out into all varieties: the bride gets a bit funky with her maids, the parents nab a round with their children, and the group lifts chairs for a spunky, if not outright scary, version of a hora. The wedding cake is frosted in superb blue cascading flowers and blue trim along the base of each layer; everyone loves the treat, down to the blue-tinged tongues they get from that special frosting! Amid the music and laughter, the couple steals away for a few kisses under the stars…and knows that this day will linger long in their hearts and memories.
