Images: Photos from the Harty
I love this time of year because it’s usually when the area photographers are able to climb out of their wediting black holes and actually submit all their awesome my way. September to December can be a bit of a light submission period for me because photographers are just too damn busy shooting and editing to really put submissions together (how dare they do their jobs ;-p). So I love this time of year as a wedding blogger, because I get to not only see but SHARE all the radness they’ve been working on the past year.
From the bride:
I’m one of those weird people who was not only born in Washington, DC but still chooses to live here as an adult–with no real intention to leave. So, when my very “classic american boy” now husband proposed to me, the color scheme was very clear: red, white and blue. That came to me before any other ideas; and then it drove the planning for the rest of the event. I wanted to capture that patriotic element, without being too “in your face” or cheesy; the Hotel Monaco was the perfect for that.
The very old school Washington architecture with the modern decor were exactly what I wanted. The Monaco also has a very special well of arranging the ceremony– it’s done in the round with us in the middle so that we were literally surrounded by our family and friends.
