I could tell you some other superficial things about myself— I love dark chocolate and red wine, I love DC for it’s grand architecture and rich history, I have a husband I adore, a strong marriage, a darling baby girl, a quaint old brick home, and a love for strong coffee & a good book. 

But if you really want to know me, here are a few things that matter:

I never get tired of weddings.
I tear up at almost every first kiss.
I think pretty & styled is nice, but real life is beautiful. 
I would rather cook for a friend than buy a meal out.
I care more about having a beautiful soul than a perfect body.
I cherish every lingering morning, and end every night with a kiss. 
I believe marriage is one of the greatest earthly gifts anyone can receive.
I believe in telling your story, not my own version of it.

Best of Weddings 2018, Part One! Always one of my favorite (and one of the best received) blog post of the year. I love the chance to reflect over the previous year’s work and soak in the joy and privilege that is this job. 2018 was my 11th wedding season, and I still get emotional […]

When Edwin and Anna-Louisa met through a mutual friend in DC, they not only found love, but a shared international heritage that brought them even closer together.  When planning their New Years Eve wedding at the Decatur House (one year ago today!!), they wanted to capture a feeling, more than a look. From her satin Louboutin slingback heels, to […]

Maureen and Adrian’s story began at Boston College in 2005. Their love has seen them through many transitions over the years; from moving to new cities and starting new jobs, to planning a wedding in Washington, DC from California. Their January wedding was full of subtle nods to their alma mater, with beautiful accents of […]
