On Saturday I joined Amanda + Nick in DC for their wedding day! They have been together for 7 years and live in DC with their sweet fur-baby Bailey. She is a beautiful golden retriever and I loved meeting her during their engagement session a couple months ago.
Amanda + Nick both got ready at Mason and Rook Hotel before having a private first look together. We all then Ubered over to Union Market for bridal party photos utilizing their loading dock area, old diner car, and the heart wall by Mr Brainwash. They were married in the barrel room upstairs at Republic Restoratives Distillery and held their reception downstairs in the bar and distillery rooms. What fun, awesome, and unique venues!! These two have impeccable taste and each detail was wonderfully done, I was in heaven.
You may remember Amanda from one of my favorite weddings last year. There is no better compliment than when the couples I work with on a wedding day hire me for their own weddings! It was also fun to see Jackie and Steve again who just celebrated their 1 year anniversary a few months ago.
Working with a dream team of vendors for Amanda + Nick's day was a special treat. The florals by Bee Inspired were out of this world and all of the hair + makeup by Ana B was perfectly done. Catering was insanely delicious from Timber Pizza. I mean, you know it's gonna be exemplary when a catering company rolls up with their own wood burning oven!! Heck yes!
Congratulations again Amanda + Nick, it was an honor. I hope you're enjoying Hawaii!! xo, H
