I had the absolute pleasure of shooting with my good friend Ryan Zook (taggg team back again) for this classic + elegant wedding at the Hotel Monaco in Old Town Alexandria. The weather was perfect on Kimberly + Stephen’s wedding day – the perfect temperature during the day and a little cool at night. It was so nice, they even did their first dance in the courtyard where the ceremony was held. Kim + Stephen met in school at UNC Greensboro (loveee NC!!) and are now call the Washington, DC area home. They love Old Town and actually live not too far away from Hotel Monaco, so choosing this location felt like home to them – and mannn was it perfect!! It was an absolutely beautiful and elegant wedding. Every detail was in place and there was so much time built into the entire wedding schedule (brides, I highly recommend this!) that you never saw Kim, Stephen, or the wedding party rushed or flustered at any part during the day – which is exactly what you want your wedding day to be like. Everyone was just loving every moment.
Kim + Stephen light each other up with laughter and smiles as soon as they see each other and are so in love – they have their own little gestures and inside jokes and its evident that the love they share will last forever. Wishing them both a lifetime of happiness!
