Army Navy Country Club Wedding – Congratulations Emily and Eric!

From the Hotel Monaco to the Army Navy Country Club, choosing beautiful locations as a backdrop to your wedding day is a great help to your photographer. :)Then choosing a wedding gown that makes you shine as bright as the dress sparkles, add a love between a couple that can be felt, and you have the combination for a magical wedding day and the best wedding pictures.
Emily was stunning in her gorgeous sparkly flowy spaghetti strap ball gown that even spelled the word love, hidden in the sparkles.  The 1957 Bentley that chauffeured the groom and his best man, and the bride and her maid of honor,from the Hotel Monaco to the Army Navy Country club was such a classy touch and made for fun memories.  And as a prop for wedding pictures, it’s hard to beat.  The flowers in the bouquets pulled together all the hues of lavender, purple, wine and lilac that Emily chose for the bridesmaid’s gowns.  And the cake.  You’ve got to scroll down and see the Capitol dome wedding cake!  A choreographed first dance (perfect with Emily’s ballgown!) and a fun and fast moving hora, all led by a great live band, made for quite the joyous wedding celebration of the newly married couple.  Completing the wedding day was a sparkler send off.   Congratulations Emily and Eric!

Emily’s dress was perfection.  It was absolutely her dress.  It flowed, it sparkled, and it made her look and feel amazing.  Finding the right dress is worth the hunt!
