Real Wedding: Love with a ‘Capitol’ L!

Couple stands on lawn of Lincoln Memorial by Bright Bird Photography

Having the right setting can take a wedding from beautiful to breathtaking! For Ben and Rachel, our nation’s capital city was the prefect backdrop for their special day. On this beautiful fall day, the couple officially tied the knot in front of family and friends at The Willard Hotel, and then spent the afternoon exploring Washington D.C. with Bright Bird Photography capturing every heartwarming moment of their lives as newlyweds. And what a journey they had! The pair locked lips on the steps of the Lincoln Memorial, with the Washington Monument visible in the distance. They also shared an adorable slow dance on the sidewalk in the heart of the city. After their intimate afternoon, the couple returned to a traditional, elegant reception with their loved ones, celebrating the beautiful life they have ahead of them!
