Capital Bridal Affair – “COME, BE INSPIRED”

Wedding Photojournalism by Rodney Bailey was at the Mayflower Hotel on Sunday, February 28, 2016 documenting the 5th annual Capital Bridal Affair and Fashion Show.  We were thrilled to be the official photographer again this year. Thank you to all the attendees, sponsors and vendors that participated in the 2016 Capital Bridal Affair and Fashion Show. Such a fun and wonderful event!



“Congratulations on your engagement! We’re here to help make wedding planning painless and thoroughly enjoyable!”

“The Capital Bridal Affair is for the couple looking for more; more value, more intimacy, more professionalism, more class, more of the right exhibitors, more trends, more inspiration: more of what they need to make the right decisions for the most important day of their lives. We offer the opportunity to meet the area’s premier wedding vendors: CBA hand selects each exhibitor based on the quality of product/service, accessibility, customer service and reviews – professionals who know everything there is to know about Washington, DC area weddings! You can also enjoy seeing the latest in bridal fashion on our stunning runway! The decision to be a Capital Bridal Affair attendee is the right decision – you’re not a number; we’re here for you both every step of the way.”
