Eastern Market Wedding | Washington, D.C. | Molly & Joe

Little did we know that their celebration would be one of the last gatherings the guests would enjoy for quite some time. The memories are made even sweeter that family and friends gathered from across the country, California, New Hampshire and many states in between. 

This was a true DC wedding.  Though the couple are transplants, the bride hailing from New Hampshire and the groom from California, you could tell how much they love and cherish their home here in the district.  Each element of the day was lovingly planned and infused with intention and personal significance.  

Living in the Eastern Market neighborhood, they chose their weekend tradition/pilgrimage as the place for their celebration.  In one of our first meetings, they shared that they’d visited Eastern Market nearly every weekend of their relationship.  From brews intentionally chosen from the bride’s home state, to incorporating pine boughs from the family farm into the floral arrangements…  even commissioning a local artist to sketch their Save the Date, Molly and Joe thought of each detail.   

The couple joyfully exchanged “I do’s” in the gorgeous St.Joseph’s church on Capitol Hill.  When I first stepped inside ~ I was awestruck with it’s simple grandeur and beauty.  With the couple both involved in work on Capitol Hill, the couple were able to steal some quiet moments in the Capitol’s halls for their portraits.  (Like I said, the ultimate DC wedding!) Meanwhile, Eastern Market’s space transformed into soft winter magic for dinner and dancing.  The hunter green, black, and gold color were a dreamy winter palette.  If the couple brought the love and the personal touches, their guests knew how to match in celebration.  Cheers to the happy couple!
