This was the city where Julie and Tyler met, fell in love, and had their wedding! Our photographer met the two and knew that these two were meant for each other.

The wedding was to happen in two venues, and our BDF photographer met the two by the time they were deciding to get ready for the day. Our wedding photographer had talked to the couple to understand the kind of wedding photos they wanted to remember their special moments. For the day, our photographers once knew what they wanted, and got started for the day. The couple had decided to have a wedding with two venues, one for a wedding ceremony, and another for their reception party. Before the day’s celebrations, the two had decided to get ready separately and not have their first look photo session. Although we love first-look photos, we also love the look of happiness and absolute joy on the groom’s face when he sees the bride walk down the aisle. Our photographer took the photos of the bride first. For the day, Julie had picked her getting-ready outfit as a white lace overthrow with lace shorts and a shirt. Before she sat down with her girls to dress up for the day, our bride posed with a champagne bottle to start off the day. Julie gleefully smiled and popped a bottle of champagne! Our photographer took photos of the bride-to-be. And when she had the bottle popped, our photographer then took photos of Julie with her bridesmaids. Julie had picked out beautiful getting-ready outfits. She navy pairs of shorts and shirts with pink piping! To make every outfit right for every bridesmaid, Julie had the names of the bridesmaids embroidered on the shirts. Before our D.C. photographer took photos of the groom and his groomsmen, they took photos of the girls having a chat on the couch. And just like that, our wedding photographer left Julie and the bridesmaids to get dressed for the day.

As our photographer made their way to the groom and groomsmen’s room, the vibe was similar to that of the girls! Our photographer took photos of the groom and the groomsmen enjoying their time together and beginning to get dressed. The boys were dressed in two-piece blue suits. The boys had decided to have their outfits in lighter hues of blue, but darker than sky blue. As Tyler was about to finish getting dressed, the father of the groom helped him put on his dress jacket. And then he fixed the tie for Tyler. Smiling, the father and son had a beautiful moment, our photographer captured the moments leading up to the beautiful Church wedding ceremony. As the boys were dressed, they decided to make their way to the wedding ceremony venue. Our photographer then made their way to the girls again. And this time, the girls were dressed. The bride was almost ready for the day. Julie’s wedding dress was a beautiful v-neck dress with a fluffy skirt. Her wedding dress exuded the princess-like wedding dress charm. To complete her wedding outfit, she decided to pair a long wedding veil. To make her wedding look just right, her bridal makeup was glowy and simple. For her bridal hairstyle, Julie let her long hair flow and had a sweeping hairstyle. To make the hairstyle look just right, our bride for the day also had decided to slightly curl the ends of her hair. Before Julie stepped out to make her way for the wedding ceremony, the mother of the bride helped the bride fix her dress and look her best self for the day’s celebrations!

For the day, the wedding ceremony was scheduled to take place at the Immaculate Conception Church in Elkton. Nestled in the heart of D.C., the Immaculate Conception Church in Elkton stands as a timeless testament to architectural grace and spiritual devotion. Its majestic spires reach for the heavens, while intricate detailing adorns every corner, reflecting the dedication of its craftsmen. As sunlight filters through the stained glass windows, a kaleidoscope of colors dances upon the sacred space, creating an ethereal ambiance that embraces worshippers and visitors alike. This sanctuary exudes an air of reverence and serenity, inviting all who enter to bask in its profound beauty and find solace amidst the bustling city. The wedding guests for the day had already made their way to the wedding ceremony venue. The couple had decided to keep the beautiful interiors of the church. But to make the decor and interiors look similar, the couple had decided to have some floral wedding details added to the pews. Additionally, our couple also added some pretty floral arrangements. The white and deep blue, which looked like deep purple in different lighting, the stage was set for the day. Our wedding photographer took photos of the groom and groomsmen were waiting for the bride to walk in and down the aisle. And just like that, the doors to the church opened, and the bride stepped in with her father. Gliding down the aisle, our bride for the day smiled and radiated with joy. She was followed by her beautiful bridesmaids. The bridesmaids for the day were dressed in lovely peach outfits. And just like that, Julie was helped up to the altar with Tyler’s help. As the wedding ceremony progressed, the lovely couple took their wedding vows and sealed their wedding day with a kiss. As the couple finished the ceremony and walked down the aisle together, as a married couple, the wedding guests smiled, clapped, and cheered for the two. Our photographer took amazing photos of the two walking down the aisle. Our photographer also took photos of the wedding guests smiling at the couple. And just like that, the wedding guests made their way to the wedding reception venue. As the wedding guests were filtering out, our couple and the family members were staying back to take some photos here.

Before taking photos with the bridesmaids and the groomsmen, our photographer took photos of the couple for the day. Right after the wedding ceremony, Julie and Tyler were smiling and radiating with joy. The couple took the time to pose with their families first. The couple’s family group photos were beautiful. And then, the family made their way back to the reception venue. Now, our photographer helped the couple pose for a few photos with the groomsmen and bridesmaids. And then, they made their way to the reception, too, leaving Julie and Tyler to have their photos taken. Our photographer helped these two lovebirds pose for amazing and romantic photos. Using the backdrop for the church, our photographer had the couple for some brilliant photos. Then our photographer also took these two outside and captured the beauty of the church and its architecture. Finding a beautiful spot, our photographer had the couple pose for photos with the charming details of the church in the background. As the couple took their spots and decided to pose for the photos, a soft breeze came in and played with Julie’s veil. Our photographer took the opportunity and captured the photo! Looking brilliant, our photographer took a few more charming couple photos.

And then, Julie and Tyler made their way to the wedding reception venue. The wedding reception venue was Hilton McLean Tysons Corner. Sitting in the heart of Washington, D.C., the Hilton McLean Tysons Corner boasts a sprawling and sophisticated space that sets the stage for unforgettable weddings. Its architectural grandeur is a fusion of modern elegance and timeless design, creating an ambiance that seamlessly blends sophistication with comfort. From its expansive ballrooms adorned with intricate details to its sleek and contemporary event spaces, this venue offers a canvas that can be transformed to reflect each couple’s unique vision. With its captivating architecture and versatile layouts, the Hilton McLean Tysons Corner stands as a luxurious destination for couples seeking a truly remarkable wedding experience in the heart of the nation’s capital. Once the couple made their way to the reception venue, Julie took the opportunity to pose with her lovely bridesmaids before the reception party started. As the bride and the bridesmaids finished their photo session, the groom and groomsmen decided to take a few photos too! And then, it was time for the couple to start celebrating their wedding!

After the photo session was done, our couple readied themselves to have a party with their family and others! So, as the guests were waiting for the couple, Julie and Tyler walked in with beautiful smiles and a spring in their steps. Julie slightly lifted her skirt to walk easier, and an arm in the air. Our photographer took a photo of the two’s wedding reception entrance. Then, the couple took the floor and had their first dance. Gliding over the dance floor, grooving to their first dance song, the guests were smiling and looking at their love unfold. And then, they danced with their family! And then, they opened the floor for the guests to enjoy and dance to! As the wedding party went on with happy smiles and cheers, the couple took their place at their table and watched their friends and family celebrate their union. Before the day ended, Julie and Tyler decided to have their wedding cake-cutting ceremony. The wedding cake for the day was a three-tier cake. This lovely cake was a white fondant cake. The top tier was decorated with gold embellishments. The lower tiers were adorned with lovely white edible flowers. As the day continued, our couple smiled and enjoyed themselves with their guests. And to end the night, our couple bid their goodbyes and had their wedding exit surrounded by their friends and family!
