Leslie and Peter's Hotel Monaco DC Wedding
Leslie and Peter had a gorgeous day at the Hotel Monaco in DC. I've photographed here many times, but it's not often that I have the opportunity to photograph the ceremony in the ballroom as well. The light was perfect, the way the friends and family were arranged was gorgeous, laid out around the center of the room. Love that the space, the venue, the weather all work out perfectly and yet all of that held a candle to the beauty of Leslie and Peter's affection towards one another. Just watching them, I was in awe. They had such chemistry, and it shows in the photographs.
Thank you, Leslie and Peter, for choosing me to document your special day. It was such a pleasure.
L A shout out to Robin Shotola for her second set of eyes and vision this day. Thank you, Robin!
