Elite Yacht Wedding Washington, DC // Katherine & Patrick

Two weekends ago I had the honor of capturing Katherine and Patrick’s wedding day! It feels like not that long ago that these two were announcing their engagement at the Design firm where I work! I got to know them both over the course of their engagement and I really felt special being the one to capture their day.

The day started with a very calm getting ready morning. I arrived and met Katherine in her suite as she was finishing up hair and makeup. It was a very low key, easy going morning and everybody in the room could sense her excitement to see Patrick! My sister was my second shooter for the day and we went to meet with Patrick in his room and take some portraits before their first look. He was equally as excited and kept asking how she was doing, so sweet!

It rained all day, but that didn’t stop the celebration. The wedding took place on the Elite Yacht that set sail out of the Wharf in DC. Guests gathered on the boat and watched Katherine and Patrick exchange vows before we took off on the water. We sailed while guests enjoyed lunch and dancing. It was in intimate gathering with all of the friends and family they love. Katherine shared a first dance with her son and he sang the whole song to her as they danced. There wasn’t  dry eye in the room!

After the boat docked and guests departed we headed back to the hotel for some more portraits! Cheers to the newlyweds! I can’t wait to hear all about your amazing Mediterranean honeymoon!
