Kara + David | Married

We posted a sneak peek from Kara and David's wedding way back in October. Ever since then, we've been itching to post the rest of their pictures! Kara and David's amazing celebration took place at one of our favorite venues, Glen Echo Park. It was once an amusement park from 1900 to 1968, and now serves as an arts center. It's full of life with vibrant colors, unique architecture, a working carousel, and a bumper car pavilion. If you live in the DC/MD/VA area, you must visit this place.

We loved all of the personal touches Kara and David incorporated into their wedding. Everything matched the whimsical, playful feel to their day. The bouquets were made out of felt, the adorable flower girls wore polka dotted sundresses, there was an assortment of pies instead of a cake, they had mustaches on sticks... And we were ecstatic that Kara and David let us steal them away for some fun pictures before the ceremony. They allowed plenty of time for us to wander around the park. Kara was even cool with climbing down to a creek in her dress - it was awesome.

After the ceremony, Kara and David were glowing. Their reception was held in the bumper car pavilion, and they danced the night away with their guests to the sounds of a zydeco band.

Our friend, Leigh, came out to second shoot, and as usual, we had a blast working together. Leigh, thank you so much for all of your help - you're the best! Also, thank you to Astrid Ruggeri of CityAffairs for coordinating the day.

Kara and David - We're so happy to have met you both. I hope we can keep in touch. Best wishes!

Love the setting and the Black Eyed Susans. Wait, did I just say I liked flowers? You know, because of MD and all.
