Mayflower Hotel DC weddings are some of my very favorite hotel events! I have loved the Mayflower Hotel in Washington DC for many years and am absolutely impressed and thrilled by the recent renovation to the Grand Ballroom.
Mayflower Hotel DC weddings offer so many beautiful options for you and your guests. In this case, the bride and groom both got ready at the Mayflower. The bride and her bridesmaids were in the expansive Presidential Suite where they had hair and makeup and enjoyed breakfast together prior to leaving for the ceremony.
Once the bride was dressed, she had a special moment with her grandparents and parents before we went downstairs to get into the limo to head to St. Patrick's for their Catholic ceremony. The limo driver got a little bit lost, but we still arrived in plenty of time for their ceremony!
After the ceremony, we had some downtime before cocktails began at the Mayflower. So, we took our time with some portraits of the bride and groom around DC, stopping at a few favorite landmarks. This image is a DC White House wedding photo - obviously! I lit this so that we could maintain the ambiance of the evening/twilight while capturing the bride and groom and the White House in the background.
We then concluded portraits and went back to their Mayflower Hotel wedding reception where guests enjoyed dinner and dancing!
