Happy Monday everyone! Our first real Washington DC wedding this week is so ridiculously sweet – not only are Caitlin and Chris high school sweethearts, but they held a tropical destination wedding right in the heart of Washington, DC!  The big day started off with a ceremony in Alexandria, Virginia before moving to downtown Washington, DC for the reception. Check back in a bit for the reception! Luckily, Rebekah J. Murray was there to capture the entire day, along with the team at Fleurish Events helping to bring all the fun tropical-inspired wedding details to life.

Chris and Caitlin were married at St. Louis Catholic Church near Caitlin’s parents’ home in Alexandria, Virginia.  Caitlin decided to adopt the concept of a “destination wedding” as her theme in a nod to Chris’s Hawaiian heritage, and incorporated tropical leaves, flowers, and colors into every aspect of the ceremony and reception.
