Happy spring, everyone! I hope you’re having a warmer start to the season than we are in the VA/DC/MD area – it snowed quite a bit yesterday even though we’re several days officially into spring (and I had already put away my snowboard for the year). But thankfully Danielle and Fred’s wedding on Sunday was just warm enough with clear skies and no rain or snow. That’s all I was asking for! They were married at the lovely historic Morrison-Clark Inn in D.C.
The ceremony space indoors was perfect for an intimate gathering.
I love all of the beautiful traditions in a Jewish ceremony, and their rabbi did an amazing job officiating.
Signing the ketubah:
I LOVE this next image. It’s one of my most favorite post-ceremony photos ever.
After the ceremony, guests mingled for cocktail hour…
…and I stole Danielle and Fred for a few quick portraits outside. It was just barely warm enough for five minutes of portraits, but we made it work!
There is something really amazing that happens when I ask a couple to look at each other. It becomes an un-posed moment of joy – just magic. I love it.
The dining room was transformed after the ceremony…
…with signs of spring!
Mazel tov Danielle and Fred! It was so wonderful to meet you both, and I was truly honored to be a small part of your special day. Best wishes for a lifetime of happiness together!
