After I first met with Anthony & Barbie, I was exhausted. The two of them radiate so much energy and joy that I felt like I needed a nap after talking with them about their wedding at St. Mathew's Cathedral in Washington. Anthony is an incredibly gregarious gent, and Barbie is bubbly and lively, and after their ceremony they had a really nice reception at Meridian House. Decorative tealights were hung around the gardens, and the warm October weather made it inviting to enjoy the atmosphere whether in the mansion or on the grounds.
Of the many beautiful churches in D.C., St. Mathew's is possibly the most ornate. It was where John F. Kennedy lay in state, and with Anthony's Boston roots this was pretty special.

I first met Emily & Jon only three days before photographing their wedding. They both live in Chicago, but had their wedding at The Fairmont Hotel in Washington in September. So they came over once they got to town and we even shot an engagement photo of them. We went to a nice fence on a tree-lined street not far from my house. From what I hear, her dad was shocked at the PDA when he saw the pictures.
Cocktails were held in the courtyard while the room was made ready for dinner and dancing. Emily & Jon had practiced a special routine for their first dance, which was to Barry White's "My First, My Last, My Everything."
