Jamie and Andrew’s Washington, DC Monastery wedding was a dream to photograph. I loved everything about their style; Jamie’s couture dress and cathedral veil, the combination of pink roses and wildflowers, the gorgeous columns at St. Francis Monastery, bubble tea, a red dress, and a grand exit.
As always, I enjoyed working alongside Tiffany from Simply Breathe Events. Together we are always making wedding magic.
Some of my favorite moments of the day…
*When tears fell down Jamie’s face when she saw Andrew for the first time, and again when she joined him after walking down the aisle.
*Taking photos of the bride and groom within the gardens of the beautiful historic monastery. I was completely inspired by this venue.
*A little boy using his dad’s professional camera to take his own photos from his seat during the ceremony.
*Jamie changing into a gorgeous red wedding dress during the reception. In Asian culture, red symbolizes the color of love and prosperity.
*Trying Bubble Tea for the first time. Also known as “pearl milk tea,” bubble tea contains a tea based mixed/shaken with fruit or milk, to which chewy tapioca balls and/or fruit jellies are often added. The “bubble” refers to the foam created by shaking the tea, which makes it foamy. It was absolutely delicious.
*Being around overflowing joy and happiness as everyone celebrated love.
Congratulations Jamie and Andrew!!!
