Okay, I am gradually starting to catch up on my blogging. Yay! So at this point we are up to mid-May. The day after I photographed Abby & Zack’s engagement session, I woke up bright and early to head downtown to photograph Danielle & Ken’s wedding-day triathalon. I will blog about that in my next post but in the meantime, let’s get right to the wedding. Luckily after the morning activities, Danielle & Ken and their families had plenty of time to rest and recover before the 9:30pm ceremony at the rooftop at Charlie Palmer in Washington DC. I had never photographed a wedding at this particular venue before and now after doing so, I am surprised that there aren’t more weddings up there. Overlooking the Capitol building, the views are absolutely stunning…one of the best views in all of DC for sure.

Danielle’s family owns a string of grocery stores so they styled their whole wedding around a rustic, market theme. One of my absolute favorite planners and great friends Sara Muchnick of Engaging Affairs helped them to pull the whole thing together. Every detail was exquisite from the mossy wooden tables to the mismatched wooden chairs, a vintage cart, and clusters of fresh produce serving as centerpieces. They even had a beer pong table over by the dj. I loved shooting this wedding, it was tons of fun. Thank you to Kim Seidl for shooting along with me!

Dressing up the model on the cover of DC Magazine in the bride’s jewelry has kind of become my thing. Don’t ask me why but I seem to do it every time I see the magazine lying around.

As someone who has a sister I can completely relate to this little sequence below. After the 4 mile run earlier, they brought up some ice buckets so that the ladies with sore feet could ice them down a bit. Somehow that turned into a competition on who could dunk their feet in the ice for the longest. Danielle won this particular battle with her sister. Gotta love a little friendly sibling rivalry.
