A Real Wedding at The Willard

Katie and Travis are both Army helicopter pilots who happened to be living and working in the DC area when they were planning their wedding. Most of their family came from out of state to celebrate with them. So it was important that we found a hotel venue that was close to their church, Saint Patrick’s, in Washington DC. The Willard fit the bill perfectly. I hoep you enjoy these delicious photos by Abby Jiu.

Petal’s Edge did a great job with the flowers, and Onyx absolutely killed it all night long on the dance floor. Katie and Travis’ stationery all came from Paper Source, with quite a few DIY hours put into them!
