Brandon & Marika – Modern Garden Wedding in Washington, DC

March 27, 2014

lovingly captured by Sarah Bradshaw (Ampersand Photography, (C) 2013)

A wedding isn’t simply a day to celebrate love. It’s joining lives in a permanent sense— a moment when two personal histories merge into one, and a new family is created, a new chapter begins. That “joining together” is a beautiful blend of what each individual brings into the marriage in the form of stories, family traditions, personalities, and strengths. Brandon & Marika’s wedding was a beautiful example of two distinct individuals joining together, and every part of their day reflected this new “togetherness,” from the ceremony itself down to the smallest, well-planned details. It was a privilege and joy to photograph such a significant day in their lives.

Their wedding was recently featured on Style Me Prettyclick over to read more about their day.

It was a delight to work with an amazing team of stylists, designers, and planners. The following vendors made the day so beyond perfect:

Hotel (getting ready): Dupont Circle Hotel  |  Reception Venue: The Textile Museum  |  Coordination: Bliss Weddings And Events  |   Catering: Windows Catering  |  DJ: DJ D-Mac And Associates  |  Floral Design: MultiFlor  |  Tent: Sperry Tents DC   |  Wedding Dress: Watters  |  Wedding Shoes: Nina  |  Engagement Ring And Bride’s Wedding Band: Charleston Alexander  |  Make Up: Anthony Kinard – Jordan K Winn & Company  |  Brides Hair: Michael VanBurger  |  Grooms Attire: Hugo Boss  |  Groom’s Ring: Jesse Danger  |  Bridesmaids’ Dresses: Monique Lhuillier  |  Cupcakes: Capitol Cupcakes  |  Invitations: Beacon Lane   |  Wedding Program: Clifford Designs  |  Cake Toppers:Smithsonian’s National Zoo  |  Chuppah: Father Of The Bride – Jake Kelderman

And thankful for Meghan Hale for her excellent second shooting skills.

 

xoxo,

Sarah Bradshaw

    My goodness, what a STUNNING bride and beautiful wedding day! That’s so funny that one of the guy friends/family had a shirt that matched the bridesmaids robes! The bridal portraits are so lovely – I especially like the bride’s hands detail shot. As always, amazing work Sarah!
