Washington DC Wedding Venue Highlight | Andrew Mellon Auditorium

Washington DC Wedding Venue Highlight | Andrew Mellon Auditorium

With so many great venues around Washington, DC, we know that it’s hard to choose the best for your wedding day. After our recent post about some of our favorites…we thought we’d spend some more time highlighting the crown jewel of the Federal Triangle, The Andrew W. Mellon Auditorium!

The Legendary Columns of the Stately Andrew W. Mellon Auditorium

The stately Andrew W. Mellon Auditorium stands tall as one of the three buildings in the Federal Triangle. It was designed by architect Arthur Brown, Jr. and erected in the early 1930s. The auditorium’s seven stories of white-washed limestone, legendary columns, and red terra-cotta roof tiles make it the highlight of the Triangle. Encompassing almost six acres and stretching across 1,000 feet of prime Constitution Avenue space, this building certainly makes a statement. Due to its elegance and central location in Washington, DC, it has become a coveted wedding venue for brides and grooms.

If you’re impressed by the outside, the inside might be even more dazzling! With seemingly mile-high ceilings, rows of columns, and ornate details the space carries its own elegance. But when you dress it up with your wedding theme and lighting, it looks even more spectacular. The space best accommodates between 200-600 guests. It offers staff and security for your event, but you are responsible for all vendors and rentals.

If you are short on time but in love with the Mellon, no worries! The green rooms are perfect for 100 guests are fewer and can only be reserved 45 days prior to the event. (The green rooms are included on the entire building rental for larger, reserved weddings.)

Call them or take a tour to see if it’s right for you. We love the building because it has amazing lighting, built-in props, and unique backdrops. Wedding photography always looks exceptional here!

Professional Photographers in Northern VA | Breaking the Norm | Elopements

Professional Photographers in Northern VA | Breaking the Norm | Elopements

Several years ago, long before I was one of the top professional photographers in Northern VA if someone mentioned that a couple eloped it usually meant that a bundle of joy would be coming soon or signified an act of defiance by young couples whose parents had not blessed the marriage. But now, elopements are on the rise and for good reason! An elopement could mean that the couple just wants to focus on their love and not get lost in the hustle and bustle of wedding planning or that they want to have a destination wedding without making guests feel obligated to attend

So often, we see couples get lost in the details and forget what truly brought them together in the first place. I’ve even watched couples call off weddings in the middle of planning because of the stress and pressure. There is a time and place for big, ornate weddings—the excitement of planning brings some couples together even more—but it isn’t for everyone. Choosing to have a small, intimate wedding or elopement by no means makes it less significant.

Take a peek at these five reasons to consider if an elopement is right for you:

Repurpose your money.

Maybe after talking to your partner you realize that having a big wedding was never a dream for either of you…but traveling is. Instead of having a large wedding and skimping on the honeymoon, say your vows and then go big on a once-in-a-lifetime trip! The memories are there for the making!

Time is of the essence.

I’m not necessarily talking about a shotgun wedding to beat the due date. There are plenty of reasons couples face a time crunch: military deployment, job transitions, and travel situations are just a few situations that make elopement more practical or necessary.

Relieve stress.

Even with all of her magical wedding planning tricks, a wedding planner can’t eliminate nosy and opinionated people. If large crowds, argumentative family members, or awkward small talk make you cringe, doing a more intimate wedding may be your saving grace. You can focus on tying the knot and sharing your love without any distractions.

See the world!

Do you and your partner dream of saying your vows on a remote island surrounded by the ocean blue? Inviting 400 guests just isn’t practical, but remember that just because you elope doesn’t mean you can’t have guests, cake and flowers. Many destination venues have beautiful wedding packages that you select from the comfort of your sofa, and it’s all ready when you arrive! Just invite your closet friends and family who will probably love the opportunity to travel to a beautiful location and celebrate with you!

Seize the moment!

You met your soulmate, so why wait?! If you both of you want to skip the line and get on to your next adventure, waltz over to the courthouse or hop on a plane to Vegas. After you tie the knot, you’ll be ready to take on the world hand-in-hand!

Wedding Photographers in Washington DC | The First Steps in Your Wedding Planning Process

Wedding Photographers in Washington DC | The First Steps in Your Wedding Planning Process

I was reviewing examples of wedding planning timelines the other day when I came across a checklist that was three pages long! As soon as I looked at it, I felt my eyes glaze over. As one of the premiere Wedding Photographers in Washington DC and business owner, I love a good checklist, but going overboard defeats the purpose and creates more stress.

If you recently became engaged and feel a little overwhelmed about the next step, we encourage you to enlist help! Photographers, wedding planners, friends, and family are all great resources to help you set off confidently in the right direction. We want your wedding planning process to go as smoothly as possible and have a ton of fun doing it. Instead of bombarding you with the world’s largest list, we’re providing just the first few steps to get you started!

Enjoy your engagement party!

Before you hit the ground running, take some time to share and celebrate your exciting news with friends and family! Plus, you can probably get some good ideas and advice from guests who have already planned weddings!

Set the budget.

Not the most fun part of planning but probably the most important. Get with your partner and decide what you’re both willing to spend. If family members are contributing, discuss their part as well.

Once you decide on a ballpark number, prioritize. Have each person make a list of what is most important down to least important (DJ, cake, photography, venue, food/drink, wardrobe, etc.). Take the top 3 from both of your lists and plan on allotting extra for those things while cutting back on the less important items on your lists.

Organize the guest list.

Before you begin looking at venues, it’s important to have a general idea of the size of your wedding. Most venues have a minimum and maximum capacity. You want to make sure you get your money’s worth if many guests can’t attend while allowing for wiggle room if all of them attend. You’ll need this number while booking other services such as catering, rentals, and cake as well.

Select a wedding party.

Knowing the size of your wedding party is helpful when selecting a venue, ordering flowers, and planning attire. It’s also important for the everyone in the party to know as early as possible so they can plan to attend pre-wedding events as well as set aside time to help out—you don’t want to be scrambling to find a maid of honor a month before your big day!

Book a venue.

Before booking, decide if you want to have your ceremony and reception at the same location, whether you want an indoor or outdoor wedding, and how many people you need to accommodate. If you’re looking at outdoor venues, don’t forget to ask about weather accommodations such as heat lamps, fans, or an alternate location in case of rain.

Set the date!

This is pretty self-explanatory, but there’s one thing to consider: if you have fallen in love with a venue that’s booked or out of price range, see if they have availability or offer a lower rate during the offseason or for a non-Saturday wedding.

Hire a photographer/videographer.

Here’s where we come in! Finding your dream photographer is one of the most important steps in the planning process. I know we’re a little biased, but do you want the most important day of your life left in the hands of guests with iPhones? Find someone who you feel comfortable with and who understands your vision and shares your style. You will want these memories to last a lifetime!

Wedding Photographers in Washington DC | Picking the Perfect Venue for Your Wedding

Wedding Photographers in Washington DC | Picking the Perfect Venue for Your Wedding

Growing up, my wife had a friend who had been planning her wedding since she was twelve years old. She would cut out pictures of dresses, cakes, tuxedos, and bouquets from magazines and paste them into her wedding journal. She had everything set and knew exactly what she wanted. Years later when she found the man who would forever hold her heart, the wedding dress styles and the cake themes had all changed, but they still said their vows under an arch in the chapel that she had always dreamed of. But it’s not always that easy. You’re ready to say, “I do,” but now where to? As one of the premiere Wedding Photographers in Washington DC , I know finding the perfect wedding venue is one of the most important steps in the wedding planning process.

Which means that it’s also probably the hardest step…unless you’re like my friend. So, some things to consider:

Outdoor/Indoor

First decide on whether you want to have an indoor or outdoor ceremony and reception (or both—many people have one inside with the other outdoors). Do you want to go traditional with a church wedding, or are you looking for somewhere a little trendier? What speaks to your heart most? If you choose to have an outdoor wedding, ask the venue owners about weather accommodations (tents, heat lamps, fans, etc.)

Capacity

Next, get with your partner and come up with a guestlist. As you visit venues, ask about capacity requirements—most have a minimum and a maximum. Be sure to leave lots of wiggle room. Usually anywhere between half to two-thirds of the people you invite will attend, but I’ve also witnessed situations where nearly the entire list showed up! You want to have plenty of room for everyone to get their best dance moves on!

Bar

If you’re going to serve drinks/alcohol ask the venue about their policy and what kinds of bar amenities they can provide.

Amenities

Speaking of amenities, ask for a full list of amenities and services they will provide and what you need to find on your own. A few include:

    • Parking
    • Catering
    • Restroom access
    • Equipment rentals
    • Setup/cleanup crew
    • Tables, linens, and chairs
    • Kitchen with supplies/utensils
    • Wedding day preparation areas
    • Technology equipment and access

We hope that this list helps you get a get a good start on finding your fairytale venue. And remember, if you are feeling stressed out, please don’t hesitate to reach out to us. At Rodney Bailey, we are not just photographers and wear many hats in our line of work. We have been in the wedding industry for years now, and with experience under our belt, we can confidently help you navigate the process. We know some of the best venues around that serve as the perfect backdrop for capturing your day of celebration and love! Best wishes!

Wedding Photographers in Washington DC | Ways to Remember Those Who Left Too Soon

Wedding Photographers in Washington DC | Ways to Remember Those Who Left Too Soon

As one of the premier Wedding Photographers in Washington DC, it is always so touching to see the ways people incorporate their loved ones into their big day. I recently attended a wedding in which the bride’s mother had recently passed away. Of course, my friend had looked forward to her mom helping her plan the wedding and to see her sitting on the front row smiling with happy tears in her eyes as she said, “I do” to the one she would spend the rest of her life with. And although her mom could no longer physically attend, my friend made sure to include and honor her throughout the wedding.

The ribbons on her bouquet were pieces of her mother’s favorite dresses, and her mom’s picture sat in a little charm that held the flowers and ribbons together. The back of the program shared a beautifully written tribute, and they placed her picture with a glowing candle on a table where friends and family signed the guestbook. Her mother loved to have a good time, so they served her favorite wine and played a few of her favorite dancing songs at the reception. They did such an amazing job of weaving her memory throughout their wedding day that I thought I might share some of those ideas for couples who want to honor loved ones who left too soon.

Symbolic charms

You may not want a big production or a lot of attention, so for a subtler touch, adorn the bride’s bouquet or the groom’s shoes with tiny photos, charms or pins in memory of your loved one so they can stay close to you the entire day.

Reserve a seat

Want to make sure that they are remembered? Reserve a seat at the ceremony, and place a memento of theirs on the chair. You could use something as simple as a hat or scarf or something more unique that represents their personality such as their favorite pair of running shoes or their favorite flower.

Memorial table

In addition to leaving them a seat, you could set up a table in memory of your loved one. Place their photos and a candle on it along with a story or something about your loved one. You could also use the table to display the programs and guestbook to highlight their involvement in your big day.

Serve their favorite food or drink

Did you and your loved create memories while baking or catching up over a glass of wine? Serve their favorite food or drink. You could even share their favorite recipe on the dessert table with small samples as wedding favors.

Donations for a cause

Or, in lieu of wedding favors, you could have guests make donations in the name of your loved one to a cause that represents them or that they were passionate about.

Release balloons

As guests send you off as newlyweds, they could release balloons in your loved one’s favorite color to honor their memory at the same time. What a perfect way to end a day of celebration with your loved one close to your heart!

Washington Engagement Photographer | Our Beautiful City

Washington Engagement Photographer | Our Beautiful City

Over the years I have received a fair amount of Save the Date cards with couples posing stiffly while holding up signs announcing the date of their upcoming wedding. As cute as they are, most of those cards have gone forgotten. Washington, DC offers an abundance of amazing locations that will take your engagement photos to the next level, turning them into lifelong keepsakes as opposed to postcards that end up in recycling. Here are a few of our favorites!

The Washington Monument – Most Notable Building in Washington, DC

Are you and your soon-to-be spouse history buffs? Why not go to the heart of Washington, DC. for truly unforgettable engagement photos at the National Mall. As experienced DC photographers, we already know the prime locations for photos as well as any photography guidelines in the area. How many engagement photos have you seen with the regal Washington Monument standing tall in the background?! Plus, if we plan the session for the beginning of April, the cherry blossoms should be in full bloom throughout the city!

The United States Capitol – An American Landmark

Want to go even bigger? We can travel up to Capitol Hill to the iconic Capitol Building for an epic engagement session. The grounds of the Capitol are surprisingly photography-friendly for non-commercial use. We have endless options. In the daytime, the building displays its brilliant and intricate architecture, filled with a multitude of windows, columns, and engravings. The white building is gorgeous against a blue sky. At night, the building is gloriously illuminated. Like the cherry blossoms, in the spring tulip beds fill the grounds with bright pops of color.

CityCenterDC – A Vibrant Epicenter

Do you love being surrounded by the hustle and bustle of city life? CityCenterDC provides a trendier modern environment for engagement sessions. The group of buildings has a sleek, more industrial look, and there is always something exciting going on. Paper balloons, beach balls, fall leaves, and snowflakes hang overhead between the buildings, changing with the seasons. Shops and eateries abound. Luscious green gardens sprout from the tops of each building. CityCenterDC offers a more energetic vibe for those looking for a little more diversity.

The Blind Whino – For the Creative Hearts

Next, are you looking for something more avant-garde? Check out the Blind Whino! This hidden artistic gem is a repurposed historic church. Built in 1886, the underlying architecture remains untouched, displaying an eclectic array of architectural styles. The building was recently repainted in bright shades of every color and contains a fabulous courtyard. The inside is filled with every form of art and exhibits a graffiti room, art gallery, and performance hall. It is truly a place you would have to see to believe.

James Madison Memorial Building – Simple Elegance

Finally, for the ones looking for an architectural beauty (or if you’re a book lover), the James Madison Memorial Building could not be any better. With larger-than-life columns, the Cascade of Books, and ornate James Madison statue, the building is the largest library in the world! You will have plenty of space and freedom to find just the right spot for a memorable photo that will long outlast the Save the Date announcements. At a glance it may seem like just another concrete building, but up close it is really a sight to behold.

Professional Wedding Photographer in Washington DC | The First Five Things To Do After they Pop the Question

Professional Wedding Photographer in Washington DC | The First Five Things To Do After they Pop the Question

Well it’s finally happened. The questions been popped, your answers been given. Now the work begins!! For some of us, the idea of wedding planning is an absolute dream come true. Our Type A brains jump for joy at the thought of organized binders, planners and color coordinated sticky notes (music to my ears!!). For others however, this task will inevitably prove to be a daunting one. Regardless of your personality type, here are a few tips when first diving into the joy and job of planning your perfect day.

The First Five Things To Do After they Pop the Question

#1 – ENJOY yourself and treasure the moments. This is such an exciting time in our lives. Society has taught us to start stressing at the drop of a hat. You don’t have to become overwhelmed with wedding planning 5 minutes after they propose. Give yourself time to be excited and celebrate. Maybe even throw an engagement celebration before diving into the stresses of wedding planning.

#2 – Decide on a budget and stick to it. Emphasis on stick to it. Regardless of who’s fronting the bill, the last thing you need on your wedding day is financial strain, worry and guilt.

#3 – Prioritize your desires for your big day. As a Professional Wedding Photographer in Washington DC, I can wholeheartedly attest to the fact that photography lasts forever. As such, most commonly people spend the most there and place it high on their priority list. It’s not only fun to take pictures, its a timeless documentation of the most important (or one of) the most important days of your life!

#4 – Create a vision board that you can share with your friends/family/photographer/wedding planner/other vendors. This way, everyone will be on the same page when it comes to your design vision.The last thing you need it your future mother in law purchasing a bright green chandelier for your romantic blush/champagne themed wedding (true story guys…)

#5 – Involve your fiance. Remember, even though one person inevitably bears most of the load of the planning process, this is not just your day. It’s a celebration of the love and bond you both share. Make sure to combine elements of both your personalities 🙂

Washington DC Wedding Photographer | Cake Trends of 2018

Washington DC Wedding Photographer | Cake Trends of 2018

With Pinterest, Instagram, and other social media outlets full of ideas and inspiration, wedding planning (or choosing) is harder than it used to be. An abundance of options for everything from dress style to floral arrangements can be more overwhelming than helpful. As your Washington DC Wedding Photographer, we want to help you enjoy the planning period and have confidence in what you decide to go with by offering posts on how to choose the options that best fit YOU and your other half.

So, let’s talk about the sweet stuff. Cake! There are plenty of unique options out there. Along with pastry chefs who are excited to pull off your vision. Here are a few of our favorite styles:

Metallic

Need a little shimmer and shine for your big day? With edible luster dust, you can design a luxurious golden cake, or you can add just a few subtle metallic highlights to a classic cake. Luster dust comes in just about any metallic color, including silver, bronze, and even trendy rose gold. This is a great option if you really want to showcase the cake.

Drip

Looking for a cake dripping with sweetness? Decadent drip cakes are a tasty trend right now. You can dress up a cake by incorporating a few simple frosting drips over the side, or you can go all out with more complex and rich drips like chocolate ganache, caramel, or fruit flavors that tempt all who walk by. You can even choose colored drips that fit your wedding theme!

Naked

Or are you looking for elegant simplicity? Naked cakes are also commonly called “rustic, exposed, or half-dressed” cakes. This is a very versatile style. You can keep it lightly frosted with the cake subtly showing through, or it can be completely naked with frosting just on the top (or none at all). These cakes are nice because they can be decorated however you like—floral designs, fruit, cake toppers, etc. Dress it up or just let it be!

Watercolor

Want to embrace your inner artist? Watercolor cakes are also fairly versatile and fun, but still wedding-perfect. The watercolor look can be done with both buttercream and fondant, and you can use just about any color combination—pastel, bold, or ombré. The lightly-smudged frosting around the edge with blended colors looks like an artist carefully painted a watercolor piece around the sides of the cake.

And if all of those intrigue you, why not do a little bit of each?! A naked cake with subtle ombré hues and metallic details (with a few enticing drips along the side) might be exactly what you’re looking for. But in the end, remember that no matter what style you choose, whether its trendy or classic, it’s the memories made on your wedding day that count the most.

One of my favorite parts of wedding photography as a Washington DC Wedding Photographer is capturing all of the yummy sweet treats!!

Professional Wedding Photography in Washington DC | The First Look

Professional Wedding Photography in Washington DC | The First Look

Ahhh the “first look”. This budding trend made it’s debut on the wedding scene, and we think it’s here to stay! Whether you’re a tried-and-true traditionalist, or are looking to shake things up a bit…there’s plenty to think about when it comes to the first look.

Capitalizing on Time

When it comes to wedding days, they have a tendency to flash by in the blink of an eye. You’ll want to capitalize on every second you can. After your ceremony, your newlywed portraits can take up to 23 hours, getting every shot you want in every location. The last thing you need is to feel rushed during your pictures, knowing your attendees are patiently waiting on you to celebrate your big day. The first look minimizes those rushed feelings by allowing you to sneak those newlywed images in before the ceremony. Of course, if you want to make sure to get those dreamy sunset images in, there’s no reason why you can’t steal away for a moment or two 🙂

Focus on the Moment

The other big reason why first looks are taking root in bride’s and groom’s hearts is because it allows them the opportunity to refocus on the reason behind their big day. Like I said, the day flashes by before your eyes. It’s incredibly easy to get caught up in the hustle and bustle of getting ready, the caterer, florist, officiant, etc. It’s a great idea to take a minute and remember the love that is bringing you together. Also, for brides and grooms on the shy side, trading incredibly intimate vows in front of 150 onlookers can be a daunting challenge. This is the perfect time to swap those sweet words intimately. Plus, it makes for some truly stunning photos! Capturing Professional Wedding Photography in Washington DC is truly an absolute joy!

Washington DC Wedding Photography | Floral Trends of 2018

As well-experienced Washington DC wedding photography artists, we have seen trends come in and go out of style, year after year. One of our favorite aspects of weddings we love to capture is the florals. From bouquets to floral crowns to altar arrangements, florals truly do add a touch of natural beauty to any wedding.

Floral Trends of 2018

Over the last year, we have seen a softer and more natural approach to arrangements arise. Long gone are the days of perfectly round bouquets and strictly formatted arrangements. We have moved into an era of ethereal and airy arrangements, full of life and movement. As wedding photographers, it’s so much fun capturing the personality of each floral aspect.

Another trend we are loving is the use of unique and creative aspect such as bold colors, floral hoops, and asymmetrical elements. Wreaths and floral borders adorn almost every element at some boho-inspired weddings. Whereas runners of seeded eucalyptus has replaced the traditional petal lined aisles of the past.

Trends come and go, just like personal taste and style. But we have to say, we are LOVING the wedding style of the day. A rise of artistic creativity is here, and we hope it’s here to stay! Each bride and groom is beautifully unique. Why shouldn’t their florals be as well?!

Washington DC Wedding Photography | Moved by Memories

Washington DC Wedding Photography | Moved by Memories

“A great photograph is one that fully expresses what one feels, in the deepest sense, about what is being photographed.” ― Ansel Adams

As a photographer, I have always been motivated by capturing those milestone moments that people wish to cherish for the rest of their lives. Let’s face it – it is easy to remember something as special as a wedding. But we only remember the big events…the “I do’s”, the cutting of the cake, etc. What we don’t remember are the expressions of our loved ones, the way our spouse looked at us the altar, and the many other small things that seemed to go by way too fast. After following my passion to photograph great moments, I realized how much weddings had an everlasting impact on my career.

Moved by Memories

After my first wedding, I was inspired by the amount of love I saw. Not just between the couple, but the love and joy shared by the bride and groom’s parents. I loved seeing the love amongst the guests, and the love for the children that danced on the dance floor so carelessly. Photography can capture those pure emotions that we want to hold onto forever. Memories often fail us. But photographs can act as our memories by  being something you can hold in your hands and share with friends and family.

One thing I learned about weddings is that all of them are different. Of course there tends to be a general similarity between them. However, times and traditions are changing, so I am always kept on my toes. I have noticed that people are wanting uniqueness. They desire to stand out from the others. When planning a wedding, personal touches are added that make the memory of a wedding even sweeter. Because of this, I have gotten great experience with learning new techniques in order to capture moments in a way that is personal to my clients and without missing any special events or details along the way.

Washington DC Engagement Photographer | Indoor vs. Outdoor Sessions | Which is Right for You?

Washington DC Engagement Photographer | Indoor vs. Outdoor Sessions | Which is Right for You?

Think back to past holiday seasons. Do your memories include dressing in coordinating outfits and traveling to a studio to take family portraits? One person balanced on the stool with everyone else crowding around. One of the kids would keep wrinkling the backdrop. Hands, arms, feet and chins all had to be manipulated into perfect poses, and someone always forced an awkward smile like Chandler in the classic episode of Friends. Now, as an experienced Washington DC Engagement Photographer, I look back on those staged session. I can’t help but chuckle as I think back to those quintessential staged session days. 

An Updated Approach

Although we still cherish those memories and those photos, your engagement photos do not have to look like they were taken in the 90’s. With modern technology and techniques, your engagement session can take place almost anywhere.But how do you choose between an outdoor or indoor session? We’ll share some pros and cons to both, but remember to pick the option that best reflects you as a couple—your story and your personality.

Outdoor Sessions

In an outdoor session, Mother Nature creates the backdrop, and she has some pretty amazing ones. Outdoor sessions generally feel more organic and natural and provide plenty of variety—including everything from open, grassy fields with fun props to secluded spots near the water with overhanging trees. You can always find a place with beautiful landscapes and flowers, even in the winter. Plus, natural light always seems to give an incomparable glow.

Indoor Sessions

On the other hand, indoor sessions can take place at a memorable, historic, or architecturally appealing venue. Lighting and temperature are controllable, so you are not limited to a certain time of day. Depending on the location, an indoor shoot could potentially offer more privacy if being intimate in front of others is difficult. Indoor locations create a more sophisticated, refined look, while outdoor sessions produce more whimsical shots.

Ultimately, the most important thing to take into account when choosing the location is whether it is special and enjoyable for you and the one you love—we aim to make your session perfect and memorable, creating photos that you can’t wait to share. And, if you can’t decide, why not do both?!

Engagement Photography Washington DC | Capturing Life’s Adventures

Engagement sessions are some of my favorites because they are so fun to document. The couples are always joyfully in love, filled with the excitement and anticipation of what their futures hold together. Even though they may not know quite what to expect, they are eager to start their beautiful journeys together, hand in hand. Their genuine smiles are contagious and make my heart so happy. They remind me of all the beautiful stages in life—moments in our lives like engagements keep us going and excited about the future.

Documenting Each Unique Love

One of the best parts of engagement sessions is observing the different types of couples. They all have unique, captivating personalities. Some are affectionate and intimate, desiring more romantic shots. Other couples are fun-loving and laid back. They enjoy being the life of the party and keep me laughing throughout the session. And some couples are creative and artistic, celebrating a style that is unique to them. Engagement sessions are common, but every couple comes with a remarkable story. I love hearing about how they met. Some have hilarious, innocent missteps leading up to their engagement while others have more serious, inspiring stories to tell. I strive to capture the essence of these couples—to convey a little bit of their story and a lot of their character. Candid and genuine expressions are my absolute favorite to capture.

By encouraging couples to just be themselves and have fun during their photo sessions, I can highlight their love, their stories, and their personalities without forced poses that detract from what makes them who they are. Instead, they can joyfully take in the moment and celebrate taking the next step together in their lives.

Engagement Photographer in Washington DC | The “First Look” | Is it for You?

Engagement Photographer in Washington DC | The “First Look” | Is it for You?

Weddings are full of traditions – cutting the cake, throwing the bouquet/garter, saying “I do.” As these traditions are something that most of us want to experience with our life partner, times are changing! Traditions evolve, and we have seen a new trend of “the first look”. If you are unfamiliar, this is where the bride and groom meet before the ceremony. They get to see each other all dressed up in wedding attire for the first time. While the first look is beautiful, and something that I am seeing a lot of as an engagement photographer in Washington DC, it’s not for everybody! Are you unsure on if this new trend is right for you? Here is a list of pros and cons to help you out!

Is the “First Look” for You?

Pros:

Time to Reflect – Having a first look gives you ample amount of time to spend with your partner. It allows you to reflect on what brought you to this big day. You can reminisce, talk about how much you love one another, and tell your new spouse how excited you are to be tying the knot.

Time to Calm Down the Nerves – Getting married is a big deal! It’s expected to be anxious or nervous during this time. Seeing your partner beforehand will allow you to get out most of your jitters.

Intimate Time for Just the Two of You – This is a wonderful time to share any feelings and emotions for your loved one without being watched by an entire crowd. I see lots of couples read a letter or even say their vows during the first look.

Less Time Doing Portraits – Pictures usually take place in between the ceremony and the reception. This can be time-consuming, and your guests (outside of the wedding party) will often wait to celebrate until the bride and groom are finished. Taking first look pictures beforehand will minimize the time it takes to take during this part of the day.

Cons:

Not Traditional – The first look is not part of the traditional weddings that have taken place over the years. If you don’t want to veer from that, then this is not for you!

Not the Same Reaction Down the Aisle – Many people love to see the groom’s reaction as his bride walks down the aisle for the first time. Since you see your partner before the ceremony, the reaction may not be the same. But still as touching as ever!

Regardless of whether you opt for the first look or not, we will be there the entire way as your engagement photographer in Washington DC. Each look, moment and memory will be captured and documented to be enjoyed for a lifetime to come.

Wedding Photography in Washington DC | How to Easily Change Your Name After Marriage

Wedding Photography in Washington DC | How to Easily Change Your Name After Marriage

Marriage is such a new and exciting time in your life! Not only do you have a new ring, a new spouse, and a new family, but some of us have a new name as well! Many of us spend so much time wedding planning, booking a venue, dress fittings, coordinating Wedding Photography in Washington DC, etc.. Often, when it comes to changing our name, we forget all about it. The question always comes up…“What in the world do I need to do now?” No need to worry. We have you covered! Here are two options for changing your name after your big day.

Changing Your Legal Name After Marriage

Option A: DIY – This is a “do it yourself” option that requires many steps. But it’s definitely doable with enough patience. If you are getting married and want to know how to change your name the traditional way, this is the option for you!

  1. Get certified copies of your marriage certificate.
  2. Change your name at the Social Security Administration office to get a new Social Security card that reflects your new name.
  3. Change your name at your local Department of Motor Vehicles office to get a new driver’s license.
  4. Change your name on your bank accounts to keep your identity intact.
  5. Change your name on your passport for easier travels. (If you have one)
  6. Change your name and other relevant information at work.
  7. Change your name (and address if applicable) with the United State Postal Service so you don’t miss your mail.
  8. Notify other places (subscriptions, mailing lists, etc.) you need to change your name.

Option B: Hire a company (like HitchSwitch) to do for you – If Option A looks a little overwhelming to you, there are companies out there that will complete the steps above for you. HitchSwitch is an affordable option (starting at $29) that will do everything you need in just three simple steps.

If you are interested in learning more about HitchSwitch, and are interested in viewing their packages, visit their website here

Washington DC Professional Wedding Photography | Preserving the Past

Washington DC Professional Wedding Photography | Preserving the Past

It’s your big day, and you have everything planned – the venue, caterer, photographer. Everything is in place. All’s that left to do is have the best time of your life with your future spouse, family, and friends. A huge moment like a wedding is definitely one worth documenting properly. You want to cherish each detail. Hiring a photographer is a great way to do so. Wedding photography is an investment. Our job is to preserve memories and provide for you, a collection of snapshots of the best day of your life.

Preserve the Past, Memories and Moments

While photography captures the details and the moments of such a big day, there are other things you can preserve as well. Invitations, place cards, printed material, petals, jewelry, and many other little trinkets can be held onto that will remind you and your spouse of your wedding. Of course, pictures are an absolute must. But having something tangible that you can pick up with your hands and feel will bring back so many emotions and feelings. After your big day is done, have someone set aside these little mementos from the day. There are several creative ways to display these memories…a shadowbox, scrapbook, album, or simply putting together a shelf or stand dedicated to your wedding day.

Personally, what I did was save some petals from my bouquet and filled an ornament with them so that I get to see our flowers each Christmas on our family’s tree. It was a sweet (and cheap) gift to give my husband on our first Christmas as a married couple.

Saving these precious details will add such a special touch to your wedding memories. Imagine the special moments your grandchildren and greatgrandchildren will share when looking through all of the items you collected!

Rodney Bailey Photography Rodney Bailey Photography Rodney Bailey Photography

Capturing these moments through Washington DC Professional Wedding Photography is a joy and privilege. Congratulations to this sweet couple.

Professional Wedding Photography in Washington DC | The Benefits of Hiring a Professional Photographer

“You will find, as you look back upon your life, that the moments when you have truly lived are the moments when you have done things in the spirit of love.”

– Henry Drummond

The Benefits of Professional Wedding Photography in Washington DC

Meeting the love of your life is truly a magical experience. There is nothing as sweet to document and experience as true love. As a wedding photographer, I have the immense pleasure of seeing several couples who have found their heart’s counterparts. Two lives becoming one is a beautiful experience to capture. I’ve seen countless kinds of couples with countless kinds of love, and each one is just as important and special as the next.

Tying the knot is a huge moment in your life that you will obviously want to remember and treasure forever. As our memories can remember the main details in a day, it is often that we forget the minor details. That’s why documenting your wedding day is such a must! Just think – of course you will remember walking down the aisle, saying your vows, and maybe a few other things here and there. But will you remember your spouse’s face when they saw you for the first time? Will you remember the way your family cried and smiled as you were looking at the love of your life? Better yet, will you ever be able to truly reminisce on all of these details just from memory? Maybe, but maybe not. Hiring a photographer to capture these small, yet precious moments on your big day will allow you to revisit the wonderful details – and share them with your loved ones!

Investing in Professional Wedding Photography in Washington DC is an absolute must when it comes to your big day!

Washington DC Professional Wedding Photography | Documenting the Details

“Once in a while, right in the middle of an ordinary life, love gives us a fairy tale.” – Unknown

There’s something that makes me feel so lucky to be a part of the best day of people’s lives. Life is made of big and tiny moments, each one is special. Working alongside so many wonderful people during these moments is what makes my job so worth it. Most would say that a wedding is a big moment in one’s life, and I completely agree. However, there are many small moments that take place in a big one. Capturing the detail shots on wedding days are super important to remind you of the small moments on your big day. Wedding days fly by, it’s my job to make sure we stop and capture every memory and moment.

Unique Touches, Personal Details

Weddings typically have a pretty similar schedule – getting ready, the ceremony, the reception. But what makes weddings special for me are the unique details in each and every one of them. You’d think that since I am a seasoned wedding photographer, I’ve seen it all, but that’s not the case. I am always pleasantly surprised with how intimate and personal my client’s make their big day. It is always such a blessing for me to see couples celebrating the love that binds them together.

Documenting such special moments like wedding days are something that you will cherish for the rest of your life! There is nothing comparable to flipping through a beautiful album filled with photos of one of the best days of your life! If you are interested in discussing your photography needs, please reach out! I would love to help capture your big day. There is nothing more special than spending your day at the altar with the one you love, surrounded by family!

Wedding Photographer in Washington DC Captures Gorgeous Engagement Session

Wedding Photographer in Washington DC Captures Gorgeous Engagement Session

“Engagement marks the end of a whirlwind romance and beginning of an eternal love story.” – Anonymous

I have always found it enlightening that love is still very present in our modern day culture. There’s so much going on in this world, that we sometimes forget about the beautiful love stories constantly unfolding around us. As a wedding photographer in Washington DC, I have the privilege of meeting some of the best couples out there and capturing the love that binds them together.

Let the Fun Begin

The love and joy captured during this session was more than inspiring. These two have a love for one another that is both undeniable and unconditional, there’s truly nothing more beautiful in our world. After their proposal, it was time  for the wedding planning fun to begin! But before they could start searching for the perfect venue, dress, florist and more, they took the time to stop and treasure this momentous time in their lives. They reached out and booked this session with us to capture the first step in their journey together towards marriage.

Incorporating Personal Touches

One thing that I always try to do for my clients is give them the opportunity to add any personal touches to their session in order to make it more memorable and special. These two had a vision of standing under the Washington Monument, one of the tallest and most iconic structures in D.C. Of course, I was more than thrilled to make this vision a reality. We toured the area, taking pictures as we took in the beautiful scenery. This location was the perfect place for a romantic engagement session. The weather and lighting was perfect, and luckily the crowds were at a minimum. These two have amazing chemistry together, and it shows throughout their entire collection. One of my favorite spots we visited was in front of the rippling water. It made for a gorgeous backdrop as they snuggled with one another. Simple perfection!

All in all, we had a wonderful day sight-seeing and capturing some amazing moments between these two. I am thrilled to have worked with some amazing folks, and wish them the best as they go on this journey of life and love together.

Washington DC Engagement Photographer Capturing the Spirit of a City

Washington DC Engagement Photographer Capturing the Spirit of a City

I enjoyed capturing this couple for their Washington DC engagement session. I love the opportunity to incorporate the spirit of the city into my clients images.  The Washington Monument and Reflecting Pool are beautiful iconic backdrops of the strength of our nation. The outdoors and natural light were a great match for this all-American couple. The Egyptian style stone obelisk is a stunning masterpiece flanked to the East by the Lincoln Memorial Reflecting Pool, which hosts as many as 24 million visitors a year. The well known DC area is a host to stunning walkways, shaded by trees on either side. What a perfect spot for our engagement session!

A Stunning Spot for an Engagement Session

There are so many great photo opportunities to show the beauty and history of the city this couple love so much. The day of the engagement session featured some unique skies.  It was slightly overcast for part of the day and then the sun started peeking through. It’s amazing how the clouds always make a one of a kind backdrop for each session.  The dramatic stone pillars and steps create a great space to capture images as well.  All around DC you will find the magnificent Greek Revival style architecture on which so much history has been built.  As a DC resident and photographer, I love what this city has to offer as inspiration on so many levels.  From engagement sessions to landscape portraiture, the city breathes inspiration at every turn.  It never fails to leave me in awe of this amazing nation.

Saying “I do” to your Washington DC Wedding Photography Professional

Saying “I do” to your Washington DC Wedding Photography Professional

Washington DC Wedding Photography Professional

When it comes to your wedding, there are so many choices to make leading up to the big day. Picking the right vendors is vitally important and can ultimately make or break the execution of your vision, especially when it comes to your Washington DC wedding photography professional. The last thing you need is a caterer who shows up late, a DJ who is less than enthusiastic, or a photographer who can’t keep up. To avoid the dreaded vendor pitfalls, here are my top three tips on how to choose a wedding photographer:

Tip #1:  Decide on a style you want, then find a photographer who captures your style.

  1. Traditional: If you’ve always loved thumbing through classic albums, and envision a timeless look, this may be your best fit.
  2. Photojournalism: Are documentaries your thing? You may want to look into this chronological style of story-telling.
  3. Fine Art: If you’ve been saving pages from bridal magazines or spending hours on Pinterest admiring the latest photography trends, a fine art photographer may suit your specific style.
  4. High Fashion: A little edgier than the traditional style, you may find this high drama, glamorous style right up your alley.

Tip #2:  Do your homework. 

  1. Read reviews: Make sure the photographer you choose has a good reputation and a hefty list of satisfied clients. However, don’t rely entirely on online reviews.
  2. Reach out to local friends and get their recommendations: Your friends may know the perfect wedding photographer, or you may know some who recently were married and can’t stop raving about how amazing their collection is. This will especially come in handy if you’ve seen the finished product and are really drawn to that particular photographer’s work.
  3. Review online galleries: Be sure to vet the work of any potential candidates by looking through their galleries and blogs to see their consistent product. Make sure their style still fits your vision.

 

Wedding Photojournalism by Rodney bailey Washington DC 20005 Wedding photographer in Washington D C Wedding Photographers Washington DC

Wedding Photojournalism by Rodney bailey Washington DC 20005 Wedding photographer in Washington D C Wedding Photographers Washington DC

Tip #3: Set up interviews. 

  1. Ask about any questions or concerns: Have a checklist of your expectations and try to gauge if the photographer is capable of meeting them. Are they rigid in their style or are they flexible and willing to try new things? Are they open to suggestions and willing to bounce ideas between you?
  2. Personalities must mesh well: Your photographer is going to be a huge part of your wedding, so you want to get along well and feel comfortable with them. Be sure you trust them with this huge task!

Choosing vendors for your wedding can be incredibly overwhelming. Oftentimes, it’s the second biggest commitment that day next to saying your vows. I hope this list helps you narrow down the Washington DC wedding photography professional to fit your needs, and in the end, just as you did with your spouse, make sure you follow your heart and everything will work out perfectly!

2017 Mitzvah Washington DC Trends

2017 Mitzvah Washington DC Trends

Mitzvah Washington DC

mitzvah washington dc rodney bailey bar bat mitzvah photographer DC MD VA

We love working with our Jewish families to capture their son’s or daughter’s Mitzvah Washington DC celebration!  From getting to know the family to documenting the timeless traditions of the services, our Mitzvah photographers are all in, but we especially adore seeing trends emerge each year that keep it fresh and fun for both guests and the families. With that in mind, we are here to present some of the major Bar and Bat Mitzvah Washington DC trends for this year.

mitzvah washington dc rodney bailey bar bat mitzvah photographer DC MD VA

Photo Booths

Perhaps the nicest thing about this trend is the fact that it manages to increase the fun factor quite a bit. The simple fact that you can take pics with friends and family is amazing. And these photo booths do allow you to add some interesting effects and a whole lot of other cool stuff – have you seen the slow motion and video booths? It’s a must! Overall, the photo booths are gaining a lot of popularity at mitzvahs in Washington DC, and it’s easy to see why. The ease of use and immense fun do help take your Bar or Bat Mitzvah party to the next level.

mitzvah washington dc rodney bailey bar bat mitzvah photographer DC MD VA

Food Stations

While formal seated dinners are still common, the trend of interactive and customized food stations are the future nowadays. The reason is simple – a Mitzvah Washington DC party is more fun if you deliver smaller plates and food stations that keep your guests’ energy high by moving and interacting with each other. You can offer a variety of meal types and cuisines, while also incorporating your overall theme. Food stations now become another element of entertainment – food-tainment, anyone?!

mitzvah washington dc rodney bailey bar bat mitzvah photographer DC MD VA

Pre-Mitzvah Photography Sessions

We especially love this one!  Simply stated, we get together for a photo shoot a few months before the Bar or Bat Mitzvah Washington DC that’s all about your son or daughter and their personality. This allows us to get to know them and their parents before the main event. We can then create a truly personalized album to be used at their party for friends and family to leave notes of congratulations.  It’s a win-win! We get to know you and vice versa and you get an interactive component to a guest book that will become a loved and cherished keepsake of your Mitzvah Washington DC.

mitzvah washington dc rodney bailey bar bat mitzvah photographer DC MD VA

Giving Back to The Local Community

Of course, while people attend Bar or Bar Mitzvah parties to celebrate with the family, the reality is that everyone loves and cares for the Jewish community. This is why more and more Bar and Bat Mitzvahs in Washington DC are trending towards supporting the location DC or Jewish community in a unique and personal way.  We have seen the hosts providing a donation to a loved charity, synagogue or school in lieu of a take-away gift.  This is a trend that we want to see continued. Our kids seeing their parents paying it forward to help people in need can only start a fire to do the same – however and whenever possible (not just on special occasions!).

mitzvah washington dc rodney bailey bar bat mitzvah photographer DC MD VA

Color, Color Every Where

Instead of using various themes, Bar and Bat Mitzvah Washington DC parties tend to be focusing more on specific color palettes. Pastels or neon – we love color, in your décor, lighting, florals, food and more!  Get creative and team up with a professional Mitzvah event planner Washington DC to bring all of your ideas into a cohesive, work of art!

mitzvah washington dc rodney bailey bar bat mitzvah photographer DC MD VA

In the end, it’s easy to see that the Bar and Bat Mitzvah events are becoming more and more varied and interesting. Obviously, the traditional elements will remain, but it’s exciting to see how the celebration is always evolving. It’s safe to say that the aforementioned trends are hot and downright impressive. So, if you want to have an outstanding Bar or Bat Mitzvah Washington DC party, you may consider checking the list above. Adapt these trends to your party, and you will surely take it to the next level!

Tips to Relax on Your Wedding Day with Yoga

Tips to Relax on Your Wedding Day with Yoga

Relax on Your Wedding Day

At Wedding Photojournalism by Rodney Bailey, we LOVE when people want to contribute to our blog! This week, we are honored that Clarrissa Fonseca from FitnessTrainer wanted to offer her advice for how to relax on your wedding day with yoga.  This is great wedding advice for the wedding couple, bridal party and parents.  Check out her great tips below and bring a little (or a lot) of zen into your wedding day!

Tips to Relax for the Big Day with Yoga

By Clarrissa Fonseca

You have survived the stressful wedding planning and it is now the big day. There is the pressure that everything will go as planned, the excitement of starting a new phase of your life and reaching a pretty big milestone. On an emotional day such as your wedding, a brief disconnect with peace and quiet will reap benefits.

Health experts agree that yoga is a fantastic way to give your mind and body some repose. Yoga will challenge you to concentrate on your breathing and guide you towards achieving a state of relaxation.

Now’s the time to trust that everything will go as planned and try to give yourself a few moments to relax. So get your wedding party together, your significant other or enjoy the following poses in solitude and quietness:

1.   Mountain Pose
Relax on your wedding day, Mountain Pose
a.     A great pose to bring awareness to your breathing and get into the right mindset for some time to relax.

i.    Start by standing up straight (you can close your eyes) with your feet together, making sure your weight is distributed evenly.
ii.    Slowly roll your shoulders back, first going up towards your ears letting your arms hang by the sides of your torso with palms facing forward.
iii.    Tuck your chin in slightly.
iv.    Slowly inhale and exhale while being aware of the air entering and exiting your lungs.

2.   Standing Forward Bend
Relax on your wedding day, Standing Forward Bend
a.     This pose will help you rest and stretch your hamstrings while getting some extra blood flow to your head. One of my personal favorites for relaxation and loosening up the calves as well.

i.    From Mountain, move your feet hip-width apart and bend forward with  your fingertips touching the ground.
ii.    If your hands do not touch the ground feel free to bend your arms by grabbing at the elbows (I find this a lot more relaxing).
iii.    Feel your torso lengthen with each inhale and deepen your bend with every exhale.

3.   Seated Meditation
Relax on your wedding day, Seated Meditation
a.     An easy way to just take a few moments for yourself if you are in a hurry. You can use this pose as part of a sequence or on its own.

i.    Find a comfortable spot, place your yoga mat or a pillow if you would like, whatever makes you feel comfortable.
ii.    Sit with your legs crossed one on top of the other, close your eyes and breathe.
iii.    Let joy and calm in with each inhale and all your worries and stress out with each exhale.
iv.    You can switch the other leg on top if you would like and just keep breathing while you let the stress and float away.

4.   Seated Side Bend
Relax on your wedding day, Seated Side Bend
a.     A little bit more active than the previous seated meditation, the seated side bend will soothe you while stretching your neck, shoulders and back.

i.    From your seating position place your right hand down next to your right hip and bring your left arm up overhead.
ii.    Start to slide your right hand out to the side with your forearm, then  your elbow touching the ground.
iii.    Breathe while you look at the open palm of your left hand overhead
iv.    Repeat on opposite side

5.   Downward Facing Dog
Relax on your wedding day, Downward Facing Dog
a.      One of the most well-known poses, the downward dog will help you stretch your shoulders, hamstrings, calves and hands while relieving stress and bringing a lot of awareness to your breathing.

i.    Starting from plank pose, push back, raising your tailbone to create an inverted “V” shape.
ii.    Push into the soles and heels of your feet to get a good calf stretch while making sure to evenly distribute your weight.
iii.    Make sure to push your shoulders away from your ears and keep your spine elongated.
iv.    Take a few moments and breathe in and out slowly, being aware of the air flowing in and out and letting any worries go with each exhale.

You can do all of these poses, a combination of some or just one as long as you make sure to block time off for you to relax the day before and morning of your big day. It’s best to hold each pose for several deep breaths while you concentrate on your breathing. Even five minutes of nice meditation and stretch will make a difference to a stressed bride and groom!

My style is all about capturing moments as they happen, not just poses. I work the entire time I’m at an event, I’m always moving. There’s always something to photograph and I’m there to get full coverage of the day. I still get butterflies in my stomach before every wedding starts.

I sat down with Andy Kushner and The Wedding Biz Show to discuss my photography career, my process, and where I’m heading next. Listen right here or on any podcast app: http://bit.ly/RodneyBailey

RODNEY BAILEY:  CAPTURING GENUINE MOMENTS

“Rodney Bailey bought his first camera at 12 years old, saving up all his money from a summer of mowing lawns to pay for it. He got his first gig photographing a friend’s sister’s wedding at age 16, just a few weeks after getting his driver’s license. Rodney’s career started when he was young, blossoming out of a passion for the art of photography, and that passion is still burning bright today.

Rodney Bailey’s photography work, both in the wedding industry and in corporate and political venues, sets itself apart from others in the business because of his unique process he’s put in place for clients. He’s all about giving a full service experience that produces genuine moments in time beautifully.”

You’ll hear about Rodney’s most hilarious wedding stories, his process for clients, and what’s on the horizon for his business.”

Meadowlark Botanical Garden Weddings in Summer’s Glory

Meadowlark Botanical Garden Weddings

Kim and Austin’s June wedding was magnificent with all the natural beauty available from NOVA Parks and Meadowlark Botanical Garden. The trees, plants, flowers and gardens were a constant and colorful reminder of summer’s glory. It was the perfect location for wedding photography with an unlimited supply of radiant greenery and the enjoyment on the faces of Kim and Austin. Even the wedding reception at The Atrium offered panoramic views of the landscaped grounds with its three walls of glass and high cathedral ceilings complete with an immense skylight. Kim, Austin and their guests enjoyed the splendor of the outdoors while having fun celebrating, dining and dancing indoors.

Kim and Austin both agreed their First Look was the most memorable part of their wedding day. And we couldn’t agree more because the bride and groom were so adorable in the photographs with their sweet personality shining through. The couple’s goal was to have their First Look photographs taken before the start of the wedding ceremony so they could spend time with their guests.

ABOUT WOODLAWN PLANTATION: ”Woodlawn, the first site operated by the National Trust, was part of George Washington’s Mount Vernon. In 1799, he gave the site to his nephew, Lawrence Lewis, and Lewis’ new bride, Eleanor “Nelly” Custis, Martha’s granddaughter, in hopes of keeping Nelly close to Mount Vernon. The newly-married couple built the Georgian/Federal house designed by William Thornton, architect of the U.S. Capitol.”

Jackie and Andrew’s wedding at the National Museum of Women in the Arts was a favorite of ours. The November wedding reception was beautifully decorated with a variety of white and cream flowers by Philippa Tarrant including Jackie’s much-loved design details – the black tulle table runner and boxwood wall with flowers. The couple served signature cocktails, delicious cuisine and an almond flavored wedding cake with a coconut filling prepared by Occasions Caterers. The evening was full of fun with everyone dancing to music performed by The Source band. At the end of the night, guests received personalized Coca-Cola bottles printed with the words “Share a Coke with Jackie & Andrew” as wedding favors to commemorate Jackie and Andrew’s marriage.

The National Museum of Women in the Arts embodied the classic and elegant wedding theme for Jackie and Andrew’s wedding perfectly. The couple decided not to do a first look so the first time Andrew got a glimpse of Jackie was when she gracefully descended the stairs and walked down the aisle towards him. Surrounded by family and friends, Jackie and Andrew exchanged vows becoming husband and wife.

ABOUT THE ASTOR BALLROOM AT THE ST. REGIS WASHINGTON DC:  “The Astor Ballroom is Washington, D.C.’s most striking and romantic ballroom, sought after as much for its individuality as for its undeniable beauty. It is hardly surprising that The Astor Ballroom is the city’s premier venue for weddings and social galas. The 2,508-square-foot ballroom comfortably accommodates over 200 guests for sit-down banquets, and up to 400 for receptions.

st regis hotel washington dc weddings photos wedding photographers rodney bailey photography

st regis hotel washington dc weddings photos wedding photographers rodney bailey photography

The Ballroom’s 18-foot-high, hand-crafted ceiling is its signature feature and dates back to the building’s construction in 1926. Styled after the sumptuous craftsmanship of the Italian Renaissance, the richly-stenciled polychromatic designs and ornately-decorated beams are reminiscent of a Florentine palazzo and have been beautifully restored to their original glory. Four large, 12-armed crystal cascade chandeliers blanket the entire room in soft, diffuse light, providing beautiful accents across the ceiling. Across one wall, beautiful floor-to-ceiling palladium windows look out over the Astor Terrace and bathe the room with light during the day and reveal the twinkling lights on the terrace in the evening.”

Tara and Daniel described their wedding at the St. Regis Hotel Washington DC as “elegant, romantic, timeless and fun.” The couple’s wedding reception was comprised of extraordinary cuisine from the St. Regis including a beautiful and delicious lemon poppy seed wedding cake with raspberry mousse filling to the popular late night treats of Sliders & Shakes.

Colorfully Spectacular Washington DC Wedding at the Andrew Mellon Auditorium by Kara Yates at MODwedding:
“When I found out about Holly and Sanjiv’s Washington DC wedding at the Andrew Mellon Auditorium, my eyes lit up at the sight of such a robustly colorful event with equally brilliant lighting and floral design. Wedding Planner and Event Designer Jodi Moraru of EVOKE definitely made a huge splash with this culturally rich celebration featuring dramatic centerpieces and warm gold accents. Having captured every single detail, Rodney Bailey Photography shares an inspiring love story through photos, and we can’t get enough.”

The gilded auditorium and lobbies are among the nation’s most magnificent interiors. Limestone-finished walls and piers define the space and frame views of the east and west staircases, the lobby, and the breathtaking auditorium beyond designed by American architect Arthur Brown, Jr. The building was renamed in honor of Andrew W. Mellon, who oversaw the development of the Federal Triangle complex while serving as Secretary of the Treasury.”

Wedding planning information and ideas from Wedding Planning and Management:  Consultancy for Diverse Clients by Maggie Daniels and Carrie Loveless:

Wedding Floral Designers DC MD VA Wedding Floral Designers Washington DC Wedding Florists DC MD VA Rodney Bailey Photography

“The bridal bouquet is an excellent place to start when selecting flowers, as it is the most photographed floral element and often informs the choices for the wedding party and other floral décor. When selecting flowers for a wedding, five things to keep in mind are the season, color, scent, shape and size.”

Wedding Floral Designers DC MD VA Wedding Floral Designers Washington DC Wedding Florists DC MD VA Rodney Bailey Photography

“Flowers and related decorative elements underscore the mood and tone of a wedding. The entrance to the ceremony site is the first chance to make an impression and tie in the theme of the wedding. Prior to this point, most guests have only seen stationery elements such as save-the-date cards and invitations, so the entrance sets the stage for the rest of the day. Four considerations when selecting floral décor include: 1) the recipients and location; 2) selecting flowers; 3) centerpieces and other decorative elements; and 4) installation and removal.”
