Kate and Michael: A Meaningful Northern Virginia Wedding

Normally I title my blog posts with the name of the wedding ceremony/reception venue. As a D.C. wedding photographer I like my prospective clients and blog visitors to know about all the amazing wedding venues I’ve been able to photograph. You might notice this post is a little different. The wedding of every single client I take on ends up being very special to me – but this one was particularly meaningful. And I thought the title should convey that 🙂

Over two decades ago, Kate was one of the very first close friends I made when my family moved to Seoul, Korea. From playing in the neighborhood to camp-outs with our Girl Scout troop, she was one of my best friends in elementary school. Her family ended up getting transferred to another location in Asia shortly after my family arrived in Korea but our families have stayed in touch. When I found out she was getting married I knew how special it would be to photograph her wedding and be involved in such a meaningful day in her life.

Kate and Michael had a ceremony at the LDS temple in Maryland and their reception at Kate’s family church in Manassas. Below is just a small sampling of the relationships and special touches that filled their day – from a friend who made all the flowers to special buttons made by Kate’s aunt that were incorporated into her dress and Michael’s boutonniere.

Kate and Michael – I know a lot of adventures and good times await you both and I’m so excited to have been there for the start of it!
