We have such a ethereal wintery Catholic University wedding today to share! Amy and Zach both went to Catholic University and were in the same friend group throughout most of college. When they graduated, Amy stayed in DC to start teaching while Zach joined the Peace Corp and lived in Madagascar for two years. They stayed in touch by liking random Facebook posts and keeping up with each other on Instagram. In 2016, Zach moved back to DC and they ran into one another at Catholic’s homecoming where they found out they were both teaching in DC Public Schools. A few weeks later, Amy ended up leading a training for Zach’s teacher training program. Following after the training; Amy invited Zach to her Halloween party the next day. Zach came to the party and the rest is history!
Their wedding day was the perfect infusion of DC, teachers, Taylor Swift, and love. Through gorgeous details executed flawlessly by Alexandra Nesterak and her team, the wedding day screamed Amy and Zach. It showcased all they have in common along with some of their differences (one’s a Cowboys fan, one’s a Patriots fan, yet they still love one another). The wedding color palette was gray and navy and included some blush and green accents. To guide guests to their tables, an awesome DC seating chart map had guests sitting in different neighborhoods. The reception featured a canopy of twinkly lights, striped linens, candle lit tables, and lots of dancing. Happy tears and laughter accompanied three excellent speeches by the father of the bride, the maid of honor, and the best man. Timber Pizza Co. grilled pizza outside the reception space and kept everyone’s stomachs full! Thank you so much to Nikki Schell Photography for sharing this classic Catholic University wedding with us today!
