I’m so excited to finally share this beautiful DC elopement at the Old Post Chapel! As a DC elopement photographer, I have found that though D.C. offers countless beautiful location options, many require a photography fee and most can be crowded if you go at the wrong time! Lindsay & Adam were tying the knot right around cherry blossom season, and while we knew we wanted to take advantage of the blooming trees, we also hoped to avoid fees and crowds. We considered going down near the Tidal Basin after the ceremony, but knew that there would likely be hoards of tourists and couples having cherry blossom engagement photos taken. So I was thrilled to discover as I scoped out their venue, the Old Post Chapel at Fort Meyer, that there was a beautiful spot on the edge of base with its own blooming trees, fee and crowd free! It was perfect!
The morning of the elopement, Lindsay got ready with her mom, donning the most meaningful “something borrowed” – the very same veil her mom wore on her own wedding day! Shortly after, she shared the sweetest first look with her dad – just the beginning of many emotional moments throughout the day. Their parents each had a role in the ceremony which made it all the more meaningful, from Adam’s dad officiating to heartfelt letters that brought everyone to tears. They sealed it with a kiss, and we ventured off for their bride & groom portraits – keep scrolling to see how they incorporated their “something blue,” such a fun idea!!
Adam and Lindsay (and Tator!), we love you guys and feel SO honored to have been a part of this beautiful afternoon with you! You were instant friends, we’re cheering for you in all that’s happening this next year!! Here’s to hoping Germany is on the list sometime soon. 🙂 Congrats on this exciting season!!
