Kristen & Bobby's wedding was the second one of my double header weekend in DC in August. Their wedding day was ALSO nothing short of fabulous. Look at the cute parasol Kristen brought along for portraits!
These two got married at St. Peter's Catholic Church on Capitol Hill, and the reception was held at the Capitol Hill Club. I don't normally share "personal" info. like this on my blog, but their story is too cool not to share: they were both born in the same hospital in Illinois, attended the same church as toddlers and interned in DC as college juniors. However, they didn't actually meet until after college, when they'd both moved to DC and found jobs on Capitol Hill. So, you can imagine how special of a place this is for these two.
Seeing as how their wedding took place at the Capitol Hill Club (aka the National Republican Club), I really liked how Kristen used the elephant as part of a design element in the wedding (place cards, cupcakes). I also loved the flowers and toasts. Oh my goodness, the toasts were so heart warming.

*And a huge shout out to Paige Wagner for helping me shoot that day. Thanks, lady!
Kristen's aunts dropped by to lend her some items for the wedding day: diamond earrings and a lace-embroidered handkerchief that was used by her great-grandmother at her wedding 99 years ago. How awesome!
LOVE this dad-daughter moment.
Adore this shot.
I loved the dad-daughter dance that turned into a family affair!
