Michele + Ian | A Classic DC Wedding at the Iconic Mayflower Hotel | DC Wedding Photographer

You guys, I LOVE LOVE LOVE a beautiful DC wedding!  And Michele and Ian’s wedding at the Mayflower was absolutely amazing.  So beautiful and surprisingly laid back for such a big affair.  But with these two, I wouldn’t have imagined it any other way.  From the moment I walked in the door to greet Michele, she was smiling ear to ear.  And when I was able to meet Ian before the first look, so much of the same!  These two were just MEANT for each other.  They’re two kind, loving, adventurous souls that found each other on Coffee Meets Bagel, a dating app for those of you that may not have heard of it.  It’s actually pretty darn cute. You can check it out HERE.  They met, fell in love, spent time abroad while Ian worked on a writing project, got engaged, and here they are.  Now happily married and I’m sure loving every minute of it.  I hope you love every gorgeous detail of their day just as I did!  And make sure to take a peek below for a list of the AMAZING team of vendors that made this day so wonderful!
