at long last love.
rachel + scott :: married! the tabard inn – washington, dc.
two weeks ago, in the presence of their closest family + friends, rachel + scott pledged their love with poetic vows on the patio of the quaint + beautiful tabard inn, in downtown dc.
rachel + scott are easily one of the most delightful couples i’ve ever had the pleasure of photographing. i loved them from the moment i met them last summer for their engagement session and have been anticipating their wedding ever since!
seeing his bride for the first time scott’s lip quivered and rachel absolutely shone as she walked down the aisle. i was entranced by the energy between them, and while i’ve been know to get emotional quite often, i was struck by how powerfully i connected with their ceremony…there were amazing readings by their attendants, and rachel delivered a poem that she wrote, entitled “i do” to scott. tears streamed down my face as she spoke – it was absolutely the most eloquent and beautiful expression of true and understanding love i’ve ever heard. i remain completely captivated by the way this young couple expressed their love and appreciation for each other – to me, they are beyond inspiring.
inside the inn, cocktails, conversation + laughter followed, and after dinner there were heartfelt + hilarious toasts, and rachel’s uncle bestowed a buddhist blessing upon the newlyweds. one of scott’s best friends played a song for rachel + scott on his guitar, to the delight and awe of all the guests. champagne flowed and dancing ensued, making it the perfect mix of reflective reverie and all out celebration!
cheers to rachel + scott! enjoy!
