mandarin oriental destination wedding photography

If you missed it, this wedding was featured on Style Me Pretty yesterday!  I first met Sue & Gregg last year when I shot their fun engagement photos in Maui.  I fell in love with them the moment we met.  Cameron was just 2 months old when we flew out there, so Sue & Gregg has really seen him grow, which makes them Auntie Sue & Uncle Gregg.  They are one of the most genuine people I have met.

Their wedding was at the fabulous Mandarin Oriental, Washington DC.  It was our first time there and we loved it!  What a fabulous city!  We loved all the free museums!

Sue had actually planned her wedding with high hopes of catching cherry blossom season.  Mother nature had other plans and season came a month early this year.  But even though we missed the blooms, cherry blossoms made a beautiful theme for their wedding.  Ceci New York did a gorgeous job on all their stationery and Ritzy Bee Events pulled everything together flawlessly.

I love her Amsale dress and veil from Hitched Salon!  And I love these cufflinks she got Gregg.  The gears move too!

And I love her Lanvin necklace…

We then went to The Jefferson Memorial for photos.  Check out the sea of tourist:

Forget “uncle bob”, as soon as we stepped out of the car, they were swarmed by tourist snapping their photo!

But we made it work and I love how it captures the spirit of DC.

Sidra Forman did a beautiful job with this cherry blossom arch!

One of my favorite cakes ever!  Love all the ruffles, by Maggie Austin Cake:

I love their signature drinks, titled The Senator and The Senator’s Wife.

Macaroons for each table and beautifully plated wedding cake for dessert!

Congrats Sue & Gregg!  I love you both and wish you a lifetime of happiness together!
