Gaylord National Harbor Wedding Photography ~ Congratulations Ruby and Waynne!

Ruby and Waynne’s wedding day was the most perfect wedding weather we could have asked for: cloudless blue skies and almost fall-like weather. The vibrant fuchsia bouquets matched the day and the festive mood. I just love flowers!
The Cathedral of Saint Matthew is a regal setting for a wedding and perfect for a gorgeous bride like Ruby. It’s unbelievably ornate and fabulous to photograph. Fortunately a bus load of tourists didn’t come through during the wedding!
The wedding party were all great sports as I took them down on a wobbly floating dock for a shot with the sun setting and the Gaylord National on the Potomac in the background. It was worth the risk, and thankfully no one got wet!
This was my first wedding at the Gaylord National at National Harbor and it was amazing. The views were beautiful, and the hotel is so huge that even on a rainy day there would be plenty of places to use for wedding pictures. I’d love to shoot there again.
It’s always great to see former clients at weddings, both because I love seeing them again and because I’m so thankful for happy clients who refer me to their friends and family! I shot Ruby and Waynne’s cousin’s wedding several years ago, so I knew this would be a fun group of friends and family. I wasn’t disappointed; it was a wonderful day and an honor to be the wedding photographer! Now on to the pictures, just a “few” of my favorites. 🙂
