There were so many amazing things about Allison and Gavin’s wedding. So many in fact I doubt I will remember them all. One of the things I love about photographing weddings is learning about the couple. It means so much when there are little personal details that speak about who the bride and groom are as couples as well as individuals. Just a few of these were Allison’s pearls which were built over time by her Mother purchasing a new pearl to add to her string each year or event in her life. The flower girls bouquet was actually one of the grandmother’s flower girls basket which had been handed down to Allison for the big day. And I believe the pearl earrings were the borrowed.
These two were very busy leading their professional lives in DC so most of the wedding planning and foot work was done by the Mom’s. And I must say regardless who did what, it turned out spectacular! Allison was a very classic bride. The bride with the elegant look and timeless air about her wedding. Gavin I think was just thrilled to be marrying the love of his life. Everything was so beautiful. The Museum of Art couldn’t be a prettier place to have a reception and the flowers were impeccable! The whole night flowed perfectly and if there was a hitch anywhere I sure didn’t see it.
Most hilarious were some of the toasts. I love the things you learn about people from their friends and family as they usually tell the most spirited stories. One of my many favorites events during the wedding day. But most of all was watching not only Gavin and Allison SO happy to be married and sharing this with their family but the families too being so excited to come together as a family as well.
Well, guys it was perfect! And I hope the wedding pictures help you to relive that special day over and over!
