Welcome back! If you feel in love with Jennifer and Bill’s intimate wedding ceremony this morning, we’re here to make you fall in love a little more! After the rings were exchanged, the duo invited their guests to enjoy an elegant dinner and dancing reception. A first dance, serenaded by a close friend, a handmade cake topper and a sparkler getaway brought their perfect day to a close.
Jennifer’s advice to other DC-area couples:
Hire a videographer! We did not hire one until the week before the wedding, and could not be more thrilled that we made that decision. You can’t be everywhere at once, so it’s been a blast looking back at the funny parts we missed. It’s also such an amazing real-life memory you can have forever. We plan to watch it on every anniversary! Also, when choosing our vendors, we honestly went with our gut. For the photographer, it was all about who we felt completely comfortable with. They will see you in the most awkward moments, the most intimate moments and will be a huge part of your day. The moment we met our photographer, we just knew she was the one. One piece of advice I also have given to several of my friends who are getting married is one that my makeup artist, Ryan Krasney, gave me on my wedding day. I was surrounded by my bridesmaids, mom, and various people while my makeup was started. I began to get overwhelmed listening to all of the background talking and realizing “This is it!” She said, let me take you into a room alone. She did, and it was the most calm, peaceful moment for me. I had time to just think about what that day meant and what was about to happen. I thanked her so much for doing that for me.
