Welcome back for a fresh week of really unique DC area wedding inspiration! Shauna and Leu were married last fall at the Georgetown DC wedding favorite, Sequoia Restaurant. One of the great reasons we love that area so much is the abundance of beautiful locations for portraits. And the pair definitely took advantage of this for their first look. Both were a ball of nerves until they met on the waterfront in a private moment before the ceremony. While we fully support weddings with and without a first look, the biggest benefit to seeing each other before the wedding is being able to utilize sunset! Having a first look allowed them to get in gorgeous sunset portraits before the big walk down the aisle despite the fact that their wedding was in the fall. Not to mention their and fun bridal party moments, as well.
After portraits, the couple were married in front of a custom modern greenery backdrop by the talented Elegance and Simplicity. We love the modern metallic touches throughout the day. They softened these touches with the abundance of unique greenery elements! Hands down our favorite moment of the day (we were lucky enough to be first hand witnesses!) was when at the end of the night, all the guests went outside for their glow stick send off and the couple had one more “last dance” privately alone with the band. It was such a sweet moment to celebrate such a whirlwind day; we love when couples invest in the moments over details! We wish Shauna and Leu years of happiness together! And thank you to Procopio Photography for sharing this wedding with us today!
