winter georgetown waterfront wedding washington d.c.AN ELEGANT GEORGETOWN WATERFRONT WINTER WEDDING | SEQUOIA RESTAURANT | WASHINGTON D.C.

I was so excited to start my January off with this beautiful Georgetown waterfront winter wedding! Tara and Gregg put together (with the help of the fantastic, Kaitlin, of Cheers Darling Events) a beautifully, intimate wedding filled with family and friends at Sequoia. The girls got ready at The Graham and then we met Gregg on the waterfront for the first look! The light was perfect and there was hardly anyone around which made it the perfect moment! Tara and Gregg’s dog, Howie, came for portraits and was a PERFECTLY well-behaved dog… I was shocked at how well he listened and even looked at the camera! We wandered inside at dusk and the guests enjoyed cocktail hour and light hor d’oeuvres before sitting down to watch Tara and Gregg exchange their vows. Dinner was delicious, if I do say so myself, and as soon as dinner was over the guests filled the dance floor. The kids were tearin’ it UP! Just you wait! I was honored to capture this beautiful day for Tara and Gregg; congratulations you two!!

    Who knew a winter wedding could be so warm and fabulous? This wedding made me want to fall in love again (at age 76) and watch my great grandchildren (if I ever get any) dance at my wedding! And of course I’ll only do it if you agree to be my photographer! You know how to capture the moment like no other!
