From Marcella Treybig PhotographyThis wedding was traditional and elegant, but was also filled with lots of fun details that showcased the couple’s personal style and uniqueness. A few of these personal touches were: sea food apps & entree (gourmet tuna wraps, salmon sashimi, Alaskan King Crab salad, etc.), signature cocktails, her favorite flower- Peonies, and a wedding cake covered in rainbow sprinkles & bow ties. The Catholic ceremony was held in a church setting in Georgetown University DC at the Dahlgren Chapel, while the reception was held at The Hay-Adams Hotel in Washington, D.C. This wedding was so much fun and I enjoyed every minute of capturing this couple’s special day. Another big personal touch was the band they selected, The Dream Team, from NYC. The band played at the MOH (and sister of the bride’s) wedding the previous year. They were such a hit that Meghan & Patrick (Bride and Groom) flew them all in to stay and perform for their wedding as well. While looking through this album, you can really see the love and excitement they were feeling that day. An interesting detail! The brides wedding dress had a detachable train! So she’s not actually wearing a second dress, it’s the same dress, just without the fluffy big train.

From the beautiful Bride…Ten years ago, our story began in the picturesque German city of Heidelberg. An invitation was given to me as the “new girl” in high school to join the crowd in the gardens of the Heidelberg Castle for the legendary summer gathering. My dad was in the Army and we just arrived in Germany, so I was curious. An old friend, who was one of my bridesmaids, guided me up the 315 steps to the castle overlooking the city. While sitting on a bench, just yards from where my dad proposed to my mom twenty-two years before, a handsome young man approached me. Will sat next to me on that warm summer night and our story began!

The next two years in Germany were filled with love and laughter and adventures all over Europe.

The college years arrived and we followed the call to Aggieland in College Station, Texas. Will joined the Texas A&M Corps of Cadets and I lived down the road with a lively group of Fightin’ Texas Aggie Cheerleaders. Will quickly learned how to “Mug Down” (that is, kiss your date whenever the football team scored) with me, his high school sweetheart. We made the best college memories together. I can’t think of a memory that doesn’t involve the two of us.

Will followed the call to serve as a Soldier in the US Army. After finishing my degree, I needed a trip to be with Will and flew to Hawaii where he is stationed. Will wasted no time; he took me up the mountain, past the waterfall, and back down again to an isolated beach where he proposed! It took my breath away.

Our magical day was filled with overflowing love from our closest family and friends. Will and I wanted our day to reflect who we are and the love that we share.

From Megan Chase PhotographyI am thrilled to share this glamorous DC flag themed wedding! It is your classic love story of an American girl and an English boy. They met at a work training and years later, made the commitment of forever when Chris moved across the pond for Joanna. They celebrated their love with an intimate affair at DAR Constitution Hall next door to the White House. There wasn’t a dry eye in the grand ballroom during speeches. The entire day was decorated with red, white and blue touches to signify the marriage of two countries. Flag bunting adorned the space along with tons of DIY details. My favorite touch was the cherry pie cutting! There is so much to fall head over heels for like the flirty Kate Spade bridesmaids dresses, the perfectly sweet arrangements of roses and lilies and, of course, incredibly personal touches that will tug at your heart strings.
