The first dance is always in black and white in my mind and that album page is always black and white. It's so classic and timeless and romantic. It's a tender moment between the couple. Usually the first thing that happens at the reception. So they are soaking in the day, that they are now husband and wife and the reception celebration is about to begin. And usually they are so focused on each other that they feel they are the only ones in the room. One of those wedding day moments where they never want to forget how they felt. A picture brings them back to that moment instantly. Winter weddings allow for accessories that you can't pull off in ay other season. Long white leather gloves. A faux or real fur stole. So fun! And a man in his white dress military uniform too. So classic and romantic. This ballroom at Army Navy Country Club in Arlington, VA is also so beautiful and classic that it fit the mood and feel of this winter wedding. Plus when you get married around Christmas you have all the trees and lights and decor that really makes the room sparkle. It's transformed and so romantic! As a wedding photographer I do recommend a December wedding for all those extras that really set the mood and make it feel extra special. They were hoping for snow, but otherwise it was a perfect day!
