Our 2013 wedding season could not have started off any better. I knew from my first meeting with Lauren that not only would this be a great wedding, but that I also wanted to be friends with her and her husband-to-be, Tim. After a 2+ hour initial consultation breezed by, I felt we were already headed in that direction!
I have to say that one of my absolute favorite parts of a wedding day is the excited buzz of energy in the bridal suite. When I walked in, blow dryers were humming, music was pumping, and the beauty pros were doing what they do best! Dell Miller from Jouvence Aveda Salon and Marquia Kinard from Blend Event made these ladies shine.
Lauren and Tim shared an intimate ceremony highlighting the importance of family, surrounded by their loved ones. Afterwards, everyone headed back to the Westin Alexandria to start celebrating! As guests entered the ballroom, they were awed by the dramatic uplighting by DJ Maskell, which perfectly matched the tall centerpieces with cascading tulips by Bloom Fresh Flowers. Cicely and Jason, of the DC-based Procopio Photography, were truly great to work with and caught some spectacular, vibrant images.
