rachel + matt | the whittemore house


I cannot say enough about Rachel and Matt or their amazing New Year’s Eve wedding. I knew that the night was going to be special, but I was honestly blown away! Every detail was just perfect, and I could not have spent the evening celebrating a sweeter couple. These two are so dear, and I loved every minute of their wedding day!

I started my day with Rachel and her bridesmaids at The Dupont Circle Hotel, and Rachel’s dress was one of the first things that I noticed when I walked in! I think every wedding dress deserves to be displayed like this.

Rachel’s bridesmaids were all just as sweet as she is!

Because their celebration revolved around New Year’s Eve, Rachel and Matt planned a ceremony that began after the sun went down. In order to have any photos in the natural light, we had to plan a first look several hours before Rachel walked down the aisle! I’m so happy that they were willing to do it. Bright Occasions worked hard to make sure that everything was ready, and we enjoyed thirty glorious minutes before sunset. Capturing these expressions made it all worthwhile!

Matt looked so handsome, and I was in love with his festive boutonniere.


Petals by the Shore did such an incredible job with all of the wedding day flowers! I was absolutely in LOVE with Rachel’s gorgeous bouquet.
