American Institute of Architects Wedding


If I had to describe Katherine and Tony’s wedding with one word, it would easily be JOYFUL. These two were married two weeks ago on one of the loveliest days this fall, and I had so much fun capturing their celebration! Their smiles and laughter were contagious– you could feel the love and joyful energy from the first moment that they saw one another, and it carried through all day. It was just beautiful!

Katherine and Tony’s sweet dogs were the inspiration for their wedding logo, so (of course) they had to be a part of the big day! They were both so cute!

Before starting their day together, Katherine and Tony met at The American Institute of Architects for a blessing from Tony’s grandmother. It was one of the sweetest and most heartfelt parts of their wedding day.

After the blessing, we headed to the Lincoln Memorial for some photos with the wedding party. It could not have been more gorgeous outside!

Katherine’s gorgeous custom gown converted into the cutest jumpsuit! She saved the surprise for her guests, but we decided to take a quick photo to show off her adorable style.


The ceremony took place in a garden directly beside AIA. This gorgeous chuppah was the perfect centerpiece!

The courtyard at AIA completely transformed with the tented reception. It was just stunning!

Sugar Taylor drew this image of Katherine and Tony’s sweet pups, and it was used on their invitations, on their napkins, and even to decorate the dance floor!
