They each wore a red dress of their choosing and had a short and intimate ceremony in Dupont Circle, officiated by Tiffany Newman of Marriage D.C. It was simple, gorgeous, and serene inside during the ceremony. Outside, it was the worst rainstorm we’d had in a long time, We were still determined to get some photos outside, though, so while people were leaving work and roads were being closed because of flooding, we waded through and got the shots that we could. The two of them were smiling and laughing the entire time and it was one of the most enjoyable weddings I’ve been a part of.”
