A Real DC Micro Wedding

A story of a DC micro wedding. We took lemons and made lemonade. Then we weathered the rain to embrace the rainbow.

N & A had originally planned a June 20th wedding. In late March we decided to postpone it to late September. But as the months went by, it became apparent that they might not be able to have the wedding of their dreams in September either. The couple consulted with their guests, some of who were immuno-compromised, and others are living out of the country. Given the guests’ feedback, they decided to have a micro wedding on their original date of June 20th.

These giant white umbrellas are mine! I’ve had them since 2009. They are 66 inches in diameter, and they were well worth the investment! I am happy to loan them out to my clients, but you can be sure that I make sure they go home with me at the end of the night.

Their chapel agreed to host the micro wedding ceremony, despite the overall property being closed. Twenty-three guests gathered the morning of June 20th to bear witness to N & A’s nuptial mass. Afterward, the immediate family and the couple’s friends boarded a bus to take photos all over DC with Steve and Jane.

I thought I knew where all the great and colorful wall murals were – I was wrong! Exploring these is now on my to-do list!

I can’t wait to show you more from this wedding, once we get the photos and video. Steve and Jane provided these quickly so that the couple can include a photo with their wedding announcement.
