This morning I have something of a gorgeous wedding from amazing Washington, DC wedding photographer,  Sam Hurd Photography.

Sam had submitted this beauty to me a few weeks back [via the always wonderful, Two Bright Lights], but I held on to it, with hopes of getting some more details from the coupleunfortunately Katherine & Ted are crazy busy lawyers with crazy busy lives, but I couldn’t keep these stunning wedding pictures to myself any longer …. and anyways, like Sam told me, “I’ll leave the rest of the story telling up to the photos ….

Katherine & Ted’s Quintessential Washington, DC Wedding

A bit more from Sam Hurd Photography:

After having such a blast with Katherine and Ted during their Georgetown waterfront engagement session [with their ADORABLE doggy!] I just couldn’t wait to photograph their wedding day.

It was a craaaazy hot day, but everything came together with their ceremony at Dahlgren Chapel in Georgetown University. Kathy looked amazing in her Vera Wang gown, and Ted didn’t stop smiling all day long. Once they tied the knot everyone headed to a gigantic celebration at the National Museum of Women in the Arts. Talk about a gorgeous venue! After delicious meals and touching toasts everyone took to the dance floor to let loose. The wedding band had everyone on their feet all night!!

There are so many beautiful touches to this day – I know it will serve as a some great inspiration for traditional and nontraditional brides/couples alike! Plus, I LOVE Katherine’s dress & her lilac bridesmaids dresses too! Enjoy!
