Megan + Shawn | Mayflower Hotel | Washington, DC


Two amazing people, Megan and Shawn, welcomed me into their lives to capture their big day.  The details all the way from Megan’s fit and flare gown matched with amazing Badgley Mischka shoes to her gorgeous bouquet filled with a soft palate of flowers, sparkly brooches embellished with her Grandmother’s rosary beads, made up one of the most beautiful wedding I have ever seen.  The gorgeous glamour did not stop there.  The ambiance and elegance of the hotel added that extra special touch with the background of crystal chandeliers and an atrium flawlessly draped in gold silk and floating candle walkways.  The word grand being used to describe this ballroom was nothing short of appropriate.  It was absolutely breathtaking.  Gold up-lighting showcased the rooms’ grandeur with a mix of round and rectangular tables adorned with even more floating candle and perfect floral centerpieces.  All of the details were so beautifully arranged that I couldn’t help but stop and appreciate the opportunity to be a part of something so magnificent.


All of this and we’ve only discussed the background of the event!  Megan and Shawn were truly a joy to work with and their love for each other was clearly the most beautiful detail of the day.  Capturing their attraction and devotion to one another took no staging or effort.  The romance you see in these pictures is one hundred percent natural!  Thank you Megan and Shawn for having me there on this remarkable day.
