happy new year, with love.
for the first time in years, i rang the new year in quietly and in anticipation of karin + ted’s wedding on january 2nd. i can’t imagine a better way to welcome 2010 than with a beautiful winter wedding in dc with one of the kindest, smartest, most loving couples ever.
karin + ted love living in dc, and really wanted their photographs to reflect the architecture + monuments of the city. so, on this severely cold (and extraordinarily windy!) day they boldly braved the wicked weather for portraits at the capitol building. it was the first time i’ve seen the capitol grounds deserted on a sunny saturday and the guards thought we were crazy – karen looked completely stunning (and not completely freezing) while, in fact, completely strapless. we ducked into union station to warm up, and then headed to st. peter’s church on capitol hill for the ceremony. st. peter’s is a gorgeous, light-filled church and their priest was so witty + hilarious! i was also thrilled to meet + work with the absolutely fabulous sara bauleke of bella notte, whose energy + organization kept everything moving smoothly!
it was an absolutely fantastic day and i loved spending so much time with karin + ted jumping in + out of the town car for photographs, and getting to know them better through the amazing speeches from their family + friends. into the night i watched as they danced wildly, laughed happily and never stopped smiling at each other…making their wedding the best new year’s celebration ever!
cheers to karin + ted and cheers to 2010! enjoy!
