Justin and Nathan’s Classic Washington DC Wedding | DC

He knew Nathan hated surprises…
“But first, Justin has a song to sing for Nathan!” smiled the officiant. Justin was grinning ear to ear, Nathan had this look of terror (and love 😉 ), and then everyone started crying because it was beyond sweet!
I’ve honestly been counting down all year for this wedding. I knew it would be the one to break the mold, to showcase my work for the LGBT community, and one that would touch my heart differently than the others. Justin and Nathan are so perfect for each other, and it’s so obvious by how natural everything is with them. Their couples shoot was such a breeze, and I loved how they spent the time to get ready and enjoy this special day with every moment – together. When we arrived at the ceremony location, they were greeted with nothing but love and excitement. Tears glistened in their eyes as they said their vows, and I was OBSESSED with their ring warming part of the ceremony. They had tied their rings around a silk ribbon, and passed it to every friend and family member there to pray blessings over the rings so that by the time they reached Justin and Nathan again, they would have many prayers and well wishes over them. How amazing is that? After celebrating the two coming together, they shared cupcakes (what DC is known for – AMAZING cupcakes, and I wasn’t disappointed 😉 ), and finished the night with one of the most touching first dances I’ve ever seen. I’m beyond excited to share this wedding with you all, and know you will enjoy it!
