I recently had the pleasure of photographing a Liz and Tim's beautiful wedding at the Hotel Monaco in DC! I had been to the Hotel Monaco before (and have always loved it for it's history and unique decor), so was really excited to be photographing a wedding in this unique space! Liz and Tim decided to do a first look before their ceremony, and I was really excited about it because I had Liz go up this amazing stairwell to meet up with Tim! Of course Liz and Tim looked so gorgeous and classic, and I just loved their first look reactions to each other. Liz and Tim's ceremony was in the Paris Ballroom, and boy did it look amazing. I can't tell you how much gorgeous decor and lighting can transform a space! I loved the intimacy of Liz and Tim's ceremony, as family was completely surrounding them as they exchanged vows. Both Liz and Tim were beaming and looked absolutely giddy about getting married! After the ceremony, everyone took an awesome break at the cocktail hour, and Liz and Tim even got to come in and enjoy it with their guests! Meanwhile, A Sweet Soiree Events and her team flipped the Paris Ballroom into an absolutely stunning and dramatic reception space! I think everyone who re-entered the room lit up with excitement at how cool it looked! After Liz and Tim were announced we all enjoyed some dancing, amazing food, toasts and more dancing! Oh, and don't forget the silly string (which I hadn't seen in YEARS!). ;)
I want to thank Liz and Tim and their entire group of friends and family for having me photograph on their special day! And many thanks to all of the incredible vendors that helped make it happen, especially A Sweet Soiree Events. Enjoy!
