A Glam Washington DC Wedding: Courtney + Anderson

bride and groom

Courtney + Anderson were married at The Textile Museum in Washington DC. I love that their inspiration for their wedding was cocktail hour since they really wanted the entire night to have the excitement + movement of the cocktail hour of a wedding. So fun. :) To make sure their wedding was truly reflective of the two of them, they paid attention to their gut instincts when it came time to make most of the decisions. They also had incredible planners (the lovely ladies of Ritzy Bee Events!) that really got them and what they really wanted for their wedding. Big thanks to Kate Headley for the photos and sweet film of the day!

Our Favorite Memory From The Wedding

There are so many! However, one of the most memorable was probably our "first look" before the wedding. We met up for the first time that day on a set of beautiful old, grand steps near our venue and just enjoyed the moment and having that time together before the more public ceremony.
