What a lovely winter wedding this was... Abbie + Justin celebrated their union with their closest friends and family, and it was one amazing day. I started out with the girls at the Peabody Court Hotel, while Drew went to Abbie + Justin's house to meet the guys. Then it was off to St. Alphonsus Church in Mt. Vernon for their ceremony. It was beautiful and filled with emotion. Following the ceremony, the bridal party traveled to the Washington Monument for a few night shots (it was freezing out and they were all troopers!). Afterward, we all walked down the street to The Engineer's Club, where the party got started. The speeches were touching and hilarious, the cake cutting/smashing was awesome, and the dancing was off the hook! Abbie + Justin had smiles on their faces all night. Their family and friends were so sweet, and we feel lucky to have met all of them.
A huge thank you goes out to our friend, Kim, for referring Abbie + Justin to us! Also, we were excited when we found out that Evan Reitmeyer, DJ extraordinaire and owner of MyDeejay.com, was going to provide the music. We hired him for our wedding, as well. And as expected, he kept the party rockin' all night long. We can't recommend him enough!
Now onto the pictures! Here's Abbie looking gorgeous. Her makeup artist, Corinne Plank of About Faces, was fabulous.
Their flower girl, Bridget, was such a cutie!
The guys GQ-ing it up :)
Abbie and her father practicing their walk down the aisle...a very sweet moment.
She looked absolutely breathtaking...
Yay, Mr. and Mrs. Shipley!
