Heidi and Michael were married earlier this Spring in Washington D.C.
I started the day with Heidi at the beautiful Hotel Monaco in Alexandria. She was the picture of calm as she got ready with her bridesmaids.
We then moved to the Long View Gallery for the ceremony. Not only was this the first ever wedding at the Gallery, but we needed special permission from the secret service to have the event. The entire street was closed off and giant barricades erected along the sidewalk for the international nuclear summit being held down the street. You have to love DC! The gallery is actually an art gallery as you can see some of the paintings on the walls. Amy from Engaging Affairs helped everything run smoothly and she created a great post on her fabulous blog, bridal bubbly.
The highlight of the cocktail hour was the National Championship winning oyster shuckers from Martooni’s.
The same space where the ceremony was held was magically transformed into a wonderful reception area and the fun was on! Michael’s uncle is a professional magician and he put on a great show. Heidi’s dad and her brothers could be found on the back patio most of the night enjoying cigars and then at midnight the staff served slider burgers, and mini milk shakes.
A walk down the sparkler tunnel ended the evening for Heidi and Michael.
