In Marie and Brad's initial inquiry they mentioned that their interfaith wedding was going to reference, Star Trek, Harry Potter, Game of Thrones, and she planned on walking down the aisle to the theme from The Princess Bride. I was ecstatic.
On their day, after some getting ready photos they did a first look at their ceremony site, the George Washington Masonic National Memorial, followed by the ketubah signing. The opening announcement started with "Mawwage... Mawwage is what bwings us togetha...today" (which was not the first wedding I'd done with that opening, which means I'm winning at life). Add in their DIY chuppah, Marie's beautiful veil, a touching tribute candle to a close friend Marie had lost recently, and the gorgeous space and you had a truly lovely ceremony.
Guests were then transported to Hotel Monaco, Alexandria in Old Town. Unfortunately we had a ton of rain, so the courtyard was unavailable for cocktail hour. But we rolled with it and had an awesome reception thanks to the great staff at Hotel Monaco and all the other great vendors. Marie was a DIY queen, putting together her own centerpieces and lots of other fun personal touches. So enjoy these great photos by Andrew Morrell Photography and big congrats again to Marie and Brad!
