Christine + Shawn's early spring wedding celebration at George Washington Masonic Memorial in Old Town, Alexandria

I adore Old Town. Yes, I'm an urbanist by day, and so I have all sorts of professional reasons to love Old Town, that don't even include the charming brick sidewalks, or the killer view down King St. to the George Washington Masonic Memorial. But one place I'd never actually been myself? The Masonic Memorial! So when Christine + Shawn, who live in Old Town, wanted to do their engagement photos in Old Town, and get married at the Memorial, I said, "where do I sign up?!" 

As it's been in DC this spring, it turned out to be a bit of a blustery, wet day, but that didn't stop Christine from having the most beautiful bridal details, Shawn and I from bonding over our mutual love of Hamilton the Musical, or these two amazing people from turning the volume up on the day to an 11 and having an amazing, amazing day with family and friends!
