Emily & Chris featured on District Weddings

So thrilled to have Emily & Chris’ wedding featured on District Weddings!
From Emily, the bride:

“We originally wanted to have a small, casual, outdoor wedding.

I’m so excited to share these images from Emily & Chris’ amazing DC wedding. It was such a joy to photograph and celebrate with them! Both bride and groom got ready at the Mayflower Hotel and headed over separately to Holy Rosary Church near Judiciary Square. The beautiful ceremony was followed by a lavish cocktail hour and reception in the east hall of Union Station. It was so grand and special… Be sure to take a peek at some of the thoughtful details put together by Emily, her mother, and the talented ladies of Simply Chic Events, and, of course, the breathtaking flowers designed by Butera the Florist, Emily’s cousin.
