dc love + charm city flair.
kathleen + jerry are married!
their wedding was absolutely delightful! they wed on a warm spring afternoon at the daughters of the american revolution (DAR) in downtown dc two weeks ago! this post is long overdue, and full of tons of images – i loved every moment and have had the toughest time narrowing down the photos! kathleen + jerry were both radiant and it was a privilege to be part of their day.
DAR is a wonderfully classic location and a perfect backdrop for their intimate ceremony, chic cocktail hour and vibrant reception. kathleen + jerry are truly a perfect match and two of the most enjoyable people to be around – i very much enjoy their company and was completely honored to document their day. their friends + family made me feel so comfortable and everyone was incredibly kind – must be that southern charm! kathleen’s family hails from texas and jerry’s is from cuba- and everyone was so fun! the dance floor was an incredible mix of texas line dancing, A&M war chants, and salsa-samba-sassiness!
every detail of the wedding was gorgeous, and their phenomenal iphone wedding cake was easily the most celebrated (and photographed!) detail of all! they commissioned charm city cakes to create their dream cake – complete with icons to honor different aspects of their life + relationship! it was amazing + unique – such a fun idea!
although storm clouds threatened the outdoor ceremony, the rain held for the entire afternoon and evening, allowing guests to witness the union of kathleen + jerry on the marble portico of the DAR. later, everyone celebrated with the moon high in the sky and the washington monument shining in the background, kathleen + jerry at the center of it all – swirling and clapping and laughing – surrounded by their family + friends.
a grand lightsaber exit sent the newlyweds off into the night, bound for the greek islands and destined for a lifetime of love + happiness.
cheers + congrats to the famed + fabulous o’britos!
seeing each other for the first time…
…seeing the cake for the first time!
