I love Erin and Cisco. They're two people who just wanted to be married and have a giant celebration on their wedding day, which is my kind of couple! Erin and Cisco's wedding was full of so much personality. Even though they're one of the most laid-back couples I've ever worked with and were never once uptight or nervous about anything, they managed to have fun with the entire day and portray every emotion imaginable. There were happy laughs and happy tears, and any wedding that can combine those two elements is such a joy to photograph.
Erin and Cisco's big day started out at the Mayflower Hotel in Washington, DC. We all goofed around and got some great getting ready photos before we headed off to the Dumbarton House for the first look. Erin and Cisco's first look was a very memorable one, mostly because I noticed Cisco was so happy to see Erin...but I didn't realize he was actually crying too! So cute! There were more tears and laughter during the ceremony, and one of my favorite parts was when Erin's mom was asked (by Erin's dad, the officiant) who gave Erin away, she accidentally said, "Her mother and I do!" It was a wonderfully perfect moment for their ceremony!
After the ceremony, guests enjoyed amazing popsicles by Pleasant Pops, and golly was I glad they had those! It was such a hot day and it really hit the spot, not to mention made some amazing photos (I love the one of Erin and Cisco eating their pops, doing everything they can to not spill on their wedding attire!). Soon after cocktail hour began, Erin and Cisco joined for toasts from their amazing family and friends. Than we launched into dances, and I cried my eyes out when Cisco and his mother danced to "I'll Be There" by the Jackson 5. It was so touching and I don't know why that's not danced to more! Once dances were finished there was a beautiful dinner by Main Event Caterers, followed by so much dancing and music by DJ D-Mac that everyone was boogying to all night long. Let me be clear in stating that Erin, Cisco and their family and friends are some of the best dancers I have EVER seen . Cisco was out there rockin' it in his shades, we had a guy do the worm, and honestly I think every single guest was out there at some point. I was so impressed! And, of course, later in the night I took Erin and Cisco out for a romantic night photo on the Dumbarton grounds which turned out lovely.
Erin and Cisco, I can't say enough great things about you guys and your wedding! I loved every single minute of it and I hope you, your family and friends enjoy the photos! And a big shout out to my second photographer, Hannah, for all of her hard work on this one too!
Thanks for looking!
