On Saturday, I had the honor of photographing Jennifer and Gilbert’s wedding at the Atrium of Meadowlark Botanical Gardens. They were married at the beautiful Cathedral of St. Thomas More in Arlington and held their party at Meadowlark. Jenn’s favorite time of year is the holiday season and so their wedding day had Christmas touches here and there: with their peppermint bark favors that their family orders every year, their winter landscape cake, snowflakes sprinkled throughout their decor, their custom Christmas-themed paper goods that Jenn’s twin sister personally designed for them, and their cocktail napkins with fun little Christmas-related facts about the bride and groom. Though they were hoping for a dusting of snow, despite the rain, their day was so warm and full of love from beginning to end and I so loved getting to witness all of their friends and family surround these two to celebrate their marriage. Huge hugs and congrats to you both!
