Chris and Julie were married in a lovely ceremony at Congregation Beth El in Bethesda on a cold and windy Sunday morning in February.
Since Chris and Julie love brunch, they planned a wonderful brunch reception at the Tabard Inn in Washington, DC. I adore the Tabard Inn. It is a small hotel on a quiet street just blocks from the heart of the city. The hotel is comprised of two buildings that were built originally as private residences between 1880-1900. It’s cozy and eclectic and they have one of the best brunches in DC. It was the perfect spot for Chris and Julie’s intimate Sunday Brunch reception. And I must mention – the donuts are to die for!
To commemorate Julie’s time living in St. Louis, the favors were Gooey Louie Butter Cakes (which are freakishly good!) wrapped in a box, with a custom label designed by Julie.
We attempted to brave the cold and windy weather and headed down to the Jefferson Monument as planned. We managed a few shots before calling it a day and heading back to the warmth of the Tabard Inn where we finished up the couples portraits.
Special thanks to Chris Williams of Zoeica Images for photographing this wedding with me. It was truly a collaborative effort. I absolutely love this last image he photographed. I think it was the last image of the day.
