101 Constitution Avenue Vibrant Summer Wedding

July 16, 2019

101 CONSTITUTION AVENUE SUMMER COLORFUL WEDDING

I absolutely love being able to capture weddings alongside friends like Hannah of Hannah Smith Photography, especially when they take place at iconic spots in DC like the 101 Constitution Avenue Rooftop!! This wedding took place just about a year ago and I realized with everything last summer that I never got around to blogging it! When July came back around, I knew I wanted to feature their beautiful, colorful, vibrant and FUN wedding day on the blog!

C & K got ready downtown, had their pictures taken at Union Station and then celebrated the night away with a BEAUTIFUL reception at 101 Constitution Avenue’s rooftop! Although it was sprinkling rain throughout the day, you couldn’t tell from how happy and joyful the entire day was. Parts of their day were so unique like their bubble exit out of the church, the donut cart that Kenny made HIMSELF (how cool is that?! serious skills), their Clemson chant and their incredible #ShockleyandAww neon sign! Alexandra of Alexandra Nesterak Events did a flawless job making sure the day stayed on track while hoping around D.C. and did an impeccable job with the reception design!

Well before I get too wordy, I’ll let you see everything yourself!
