Happy SIXTH Anniversary to Monica and Dave!

A secret about Monica and Dave’s wedding: Monica knew about Style Me Pretty before I did. Thank goodness she was ahead of her time and got me on the wedding blog bandwagon. Back then we really only had The Knot and a number of magazines!

This was the first wedding I had worked at St. Francis Hall and I love returning  to this Washington DC venue (I get to work there almost every year) and remembering Monica and Dave’s beautiful wedding here. Their wedding was not the first time I’d worked with Kurstin Roe, and we continue to make beautiful weddings together to this very day, if I do say so myself. I think this was also the wedding where I fell back in love with Don’t Stop Believin’, thanks to Sound Nation. Certain songs at certain weddings really stand out in my memory, and the picture below perfectly captures that memory.
