While everyone else buzzed excitedly around the room, Jill was remarkably calm. Flashing that gorgeous smile of hers to everyone she spoke to, she was completely at peace that morning. She stepped into that stunning Pronovias frock she purchased in Portugal, slipped on those sapphire Kate Spade flats, opened a sweet gift from her groom, and then she was ready. They shared their first look at the National Portrait Gallery, two stories above the hustle and bustle of DC, amidst the chaos but *just* enough removed for a bit of privacy. Again, that sense of peaceful excitement reigned- these two were ready! And just a couple hours later, they stood facing one another under a striking, elegant huppah as they exchanged those precious wedding vows.
Mike & Jill, it was such an honor to spend the day capturing your love and your families’ joy! Your wedding day was exquisite from start to finish, and I’m so grateful you allowed me into your lives to document your start as husband and wife. Watching your families celebrate your new union reminded me exactly why I chose this career! Mazel tov to you both!
The incredible vendor team!
