Generally this time of year our wedding schedule is limited to the Philadelphia region as we’re just too, too crazy to head too far from home…

This past weekend Katie and Matt’s AMAZING Washington DC wedding was the exception….traditionally August is slow and when they booked us over 17 months ago it was going to be here in Philly.

Katie is from Chest County and Matt from DC and they are both currently living in Dubai – so we did nearly all of the wedding via internet and only a few meetings when they were here in the states…

Some of the event professionals were from here in this region and other from DC – the wedding was held at the beautiful St. Paul’s Lutheran Church in North West Washington DC and the reception was held at the recently restored Oxon Hill Manor near the National Harbor {where many guests stayed}.

I wanted to share a few of our images – I promise to share more of the story and the great details when I get images from photographer Jeremy Hess

Thanks to both ladies for all their help and for taking photos {which we all know I can’t do}
