No. 251 – Jasmine and Brian

Yesterday we wrapped up our fall weddings with Jasmine and Brian’s picture-perfect day. We started off in the morning as they got ready and followed them to the Cathedral of the Blessed Sacrament for their wedding ceremony. After the big first kiss, mariachis greeted them and their guests as they headed over to the beautiful Elks Tower across the street for their elegant reception. We got some stunning footage of this photogenic couple’s photo shoot, as their photographer utilized all that downtown has to offer for their shoot. By the way, that photographer was Harry who was flying solo yesterday from his usual gig with Sharpe Photography. He’s one of our personal favorite photographers and judging by the footage we were getting with our camera, he set up some stunning poses for these two. The weather couldn’t have been better yesterday, even as we ventured out to the K Street Mall area in the evening. This couple looked so stunning that even though the area was flooded with people in Halloween costumes, these two definitely stood out so much that they were getting stopped and congratulated by everyone. As we finish up our fall season of weddings, it was a perfect end to a hectic season to spend it surrounded by such great people. Here’s a sneak peek at Jasmine and Brian’s ceremony:

No. 233 – Francesca and James

Yesterday we had the pleasure of spending the evening with Francesca and James as they tied the knot at the Cathedral of the Blessed Sacrament in an evening ceremony. The Cathedral provided the perfect backdrop for their wedding, especially considering Francesca’s parents were also married there years ago. Following the service, the newlyweds traveled to the Croatian Cultural Center for their elegant reception. Francesca and James treated their guests to a photo booth, caviar bar, cigar bar, and a live band! There is something about having a live band to get your guests up on their feet. Their dance floor was packed all the way til 1 a.m. and probably would have kept going if they could! We had so much fun getting to know this super nice couple and their family. Here’s a sneak peek at their ceremony. Normally we include just the vows and rings in the sneak peek, but when Francesca almost lit her veil on fire during the unity candle, we just had to include that as well! Enjoy!

No. 225 – Erlin and Jeff

On Saturday we joined Erlin and Jeff at the Cathedral of the Blessed Sacramento for their morning wedding ceremony, followed by an afternoon reception at McCormick and Schmick’s. It was an unusually hot May day, but the bride and groom were both troopers as they braved the heat to get some gorgeous photos at Capitol Park. The happy couple are now off starting their lives together and we are hard at work on their wedding video. Here’s a sneak peek at their Cathedral ceremony. Notice how they memorized their vows instead of reading them. It makes the vows so much more heartfelt when you look into each others’ eyes as you state them instead of reading them from a piece of paper.
