Oh this day! Lauren & Greg’s Jefferson Hotel wedding was nothing short of glamorous. Their story began at a Christmas party (wearing tacky Christmas sweaters, nonetheless!) so it was only fitting that they tied the knot with a winter wedding. The ceremony & reception were both held at the Jefferson Hotel DC, which proved to be the perfect art-deco backdrop for their glamorous, Gatsby-style affair. The chandeliers, arched ceilings, & classy interiors had my heart!
These two planned their elegant day in just a matter of months, which will forever be inspiration to future couples – it’s possible to plan a gorgeous, chic wedding without needing a full year! These two pulled it off beautifully!
DC has been a huge part of their story, being where they met, dated, and are now married, so it was only fitting that we take some of the most iconic DC locations for their Bride & Groom portraits. Locals who live here know that driving in DC on a Saturday – especially over a long weekend! – is asking for traffic, so we built in cushion time to drive to each location. When you build the timeline right, traffic isn’t a concern, and we were actually AHEAD of schedule the entire day! It made for such a smooth, fun day!!
We did their first look at the National Geographic Society, just across the street from the Jefferson Hotel, before making our way downtown for some Lincoln Memorial wedding photos. For golden hour, we finished with DC War Memorial wedding photos, and it couldn’t have been more beautiful – even if it was getting cold! Lauren & Greg, thank you for being so fun and positive, even through the chilly wind and dropping temperatures!
We feel SO privileged to have been a part of your day, thank you for trusting us with your day and making us feel like friends at the party! Celebrating you guys in this new season!!
Greg wore his grandfather’s cuff links!
Then we drove over to the monuments for some Lincoln Memorial wedding photos!
And of course our last stop was the classic DC War Memorial!
Stepped into the Jefferson Hotel library for a few quick portraits!
Such a gorgeous day, congrats you two!!
