What an amazing wedding day! A Catholic ceremony at St. Charles in Arlington, VA, then wedding party pictures in Washington, DC, then a gorgeous terrace cocktail hour at sunset and reception in the formal ballroom at the Army Navy Country Club, Arlington, VA. This couple has a huge group of family and friends – and I think they were all in the wedding party! Which made for fun pictures! But Katie was a relaxed bride and let all the bridesmaids choose any black dress, which all came together for variety in the sameness. Katie’s lace bodice had cap sleeves and a plunging back, her favorite part. A special part of the portrait time between the ceremony and reception was visiting the restaurant where they had their first date for a quick pictures, and they met at the church where they were married – so special!
