dawn + wes: an elegant dulles hilton wedding

I don’t know where to start! From the very beginning, I absolutely adored Dawn and Wes! They are both fun, spunky and filled with SO much love! Their wedding day did not disappoint! The anticipation in the bridal suite to the perfect first look…. these reactions and intimate moments are what I live for. I even cried during the ceremony when the officiant read the hand blessing. I haven’t heard those words spoken since my own wedding day. (We even had the same wedding colors: purple and silver.) The entire day was joyful! Dawn and Wes always have a good time whenever they’re together! And when you bring along their best friends and closest family, it’s bound to be one epic wedding celebration!

Dawn and Wes – Thank you from the bottom of my heart for trusting me and including me in this HUGE milestone! You two welcomed me with open arms throughout the entire process. I’m incredibly grateful for the friendship we have formed. I can’t wait for more sushi and Bravo dates in the future. It is so, so, so clear that you two were made for each other. I’m honored to have documented this chapter in your love story. Congratulations newlyweds! Hope y’all are enjoying Bora Bora… next time, I’m sneaking into your suitcase!

I truly cannot express in words how extraordinary these two are… So I’ll let my photographs take it from here!
