Decatur House Wedding: Lisa + Bernard

Lisa wanted her wedding at Decatur House not only because of its historical significance, but also because it was built for Naval Admiral Stephen Decatur.  And with Lisa's father, brother, and nephew - and even fiance - all having served in the Navy, she knew it was meant to be.

Their black tie affair was nothing short of beautiful.  And their vows to each other were full of promises, hope and love.  Family and friends surrounded them in joy and celebration, and at the end of the evening Lisa and Bernard's hearts were full - of love for each other, and of the love of those closest to them.  

Many, many, many thanks to Maria Vicencio for shooting with me that day - you are beyond amazing!

As I was photographing the cake, someone setting up the lights from John Farr Lighting asked if I wanted a side light.  Ummm...yes please!  So he held a can light off to the side while I took this picture.  So sweet - love these guys!!

I loooved the crystal details and folded ribbon on Lisa's bouquet!  Creative Floral Designs did an amazing job!

I would be remiss if I didn't thank Janice of Bellwether Events for keeping the day running smoothly.  It's always a treat to work with someone so great at what they do!
