The wedding season is upon us!
Spring is always such a wonderful time of the year. We finally have life back on the trees, the weather warms up, and all of a sudden you don’t want to be sitting inside in front of a computer (well you may always feel that way, but you get my point)! Spring for us wedding photographers also marks the time that we emerge from hibernation and start photographing beautiful and happy couples, and boy did I have just that!
Lucy and Aaron found me through the lovely venue they were getting married at, the Dacor Bacon House, a venue I’ve done a few weddings at (and will be doing another one at in May). We exchanged a few emails, and at the end of one of them they casually mentioned that they were living overseas in the Far East and wouldn’t be stateside until two weeks before the wedding.
I get to meet the most interesting people in this line of work!
I met Lucy for the first time a week or so before the wedding, and I didn’t meet Aaron until the day of, but it only took me a few minutes talking with each to see how awesome these two were! They are such a happy couple, and their attitude is infectious! Lots of smiles and laughs throughout the whole day! The day itself was spectacular as well. A beautiful spring day in D.C. with the cherry blossoms in full bloom…you can’t ask for more than that! The wedding definitely had a Far East feel to it. From the giant pieces of cinnamon used in the centerpieces to Lucy’s dress (not so much Aaron’s cowboy boots…but that’s alright), these little details definitely added a cool and unique vibe to the day.
I could keep rambling on about how great the day was, but how about I just show you? On to the pictures!
Congrats Aaron and Lucy! I know I only crossed paths with you guys very briefly, but I wish you two the absolute best going forward! I can only hope we run into each other again. Here’s to many happy years!
