stefanie + brendon are married! woo! their wedding was a super fantastic, perfect DC celebration!

this hot little atlanta couple met and fell in love in dc, and i simply *love* their engagement story. just before they moved south to hotlanta, they visited georgetown’s gorgeous campus (and brendon’s alma mater) where brendon paused at the campus chapel and asked stefanie if she thought one day they could come back to this spot. she didn’t quite understand and said of course they’d come back to dc, but brendon had something more specific in mind. and so they returned, two weeks ago, on the first day of august, to that very same chapel, to be married.

i met stefanie + brendon in atlanta where i absolutely fell in love with them. they have amazing energy, gorgeous smiles, and so much love – not just for one another, but for all their family and friends. celebrating their wedding in dc was very important to them, and we trekked all over – from georgetown to downtown and back again for some fantastic photos. their reception was held at the magnificent DAR where everyone danced the night away on the marble portico, under clear starry skies, with a bright moon and shining monuments in the distance. at the very end of the night i had the privilege of riding along with the newlyweds on a night tour of dc – stopping in front of the capitol building for one final, fabulous shot!

stef + brendon: you rock! thank you so much for choosing me to document your love – you are a tremendous, amazing couple and i wish you all the best!!

enjoy!
