I love a good intimate, DC wedding – I think you guys all know this by now. Sharon & Michele got married at The Old Stone House in Georgetown and their lunch reception followed at Founding Farmers. Their cupcake (cake cutting) was from Baked & Wired – well it doesn’t get much more DC than this, does it? Thanks to Kat Forder for the beautiful images!
Sharon & Michele’s Intimate, Localized Washington DC Wedding
“This past August Sharon and Michele reached me from their home in Louisiana and explained their plans for their fun filled road trip wedding weekend. They were looking forward to a long weekend family celebration in Pennsylvania, and while en route they thought they’d stop over in DC and get married! I immediately fell in love with their adventurous spirit and was thrilled to be invited to document their day.
Their day began at The Graham Hotel in Georgetown where I learned about how all the details of their day came together with surprising ease. Everything from their wedding outfits, to their shoes and accessories seemed to “jump out at right when we needed them”. Their outfits were found brand new in second hand shops, and little details were contributed by family and friends.
At first they weren’t sure if they would get a professional photographer for their celebrations. Their DIY entrepreneurial spirit has served them well in their own small business The Avatar Course and, with the help of their friends, they enjoyed a DC wedding celebration with many personal touches. In the end they decided that their story should be told in a beautiful and lasting way.

Little did we know that this afternoon was to be the hottest of the year as we made our way down the street to the gorgeous gardens at The Old Stone House. One of the first things I heard when I stepped into the garden was one of their guests reading the sign posted at the entrance. ”Love never fails”. This phrase was repeated throughout the afternoon and, at least for me, came to define so much of this couple’s story.
I love it when couples make their celebration completely and truly their own by turning traditions into their own personal touches. In one detailed image you can see a blue Crayola crayon tucked into a bouquet. This crayon made the walk down the aisle since it was the bride’s “something blue” contributed by the couple’s little niece.
Together they successfully blended their two styles to create an elegant and classic theme.”
Congratulations Sharon & Michele! Thank you for sharing your beautiful, intimate DC wedding with us today!
