Brigid + Cara's cheerful spring Barns at Wolf Trap wedding

Hold on to your socks, because this is a great wedding that I am so excited to share. Brigid + Cara are kind, funny, caring, down-to-earth, and generally delightful human beings. I'm so proud to have been a part of their big day! They met through a mutual friend (Anya -- one of their bridesmaids), and when you meet them, you can see instantly why Anya through to introduce them. They're simply perfect for each other! Cara's hilarious, fun-loving personality perfectly complements Brigid's dry, quiet wit. Together, they're amazing. Though they reached out to me about their wedding from their digs in southern California, they flew east to DC for their engagement session, and by the time the wedding rolled around last month, they'd made DC their new forever-home.

Brigid's flaming red locks, veil, and grecian-style gown made her look like an old Hollywood starlet. She took my breath away.

Cara's bespoke suit from Kipper Clothiers was equally amazing. From her monogrammed shirt cuffs, to the delightful golden yellow felt under her jacket collar, to the rad paisley jacket lining, you could Cara had never felt -- or looked -- better. Plus, you guys, HER SOCKS. They couldn't bring their dog, Pumpkin, to the wedding, but Pumpkin was there in spirit on Cara's socks.
