A day as important as your wedding day should include all your loves – including the four-legged! After all, your pet is probably one of your best friends 🐶 If you're like us, you talk to your fur baby more than anyone else on Earth (especially during these times)! We love how A+S incorporated their pups into their special day 🐾

What exactly do we do? We take that "just married” feeling and bottle it up, so you can remember exactly how you felt in that moment, forever ✨From the words spoken, to the expressions and glances exchanged, we are there to capture and weave together your memories to be relived for a lifetime. We can't wait to tell your story 🖤

Day✌🏼on location at @willard_intercontinentaldc filming their Virtual Venue Tour Video! We are capturing the empty ballroom, lounges, smaller event spaces and meeting rooms today. It never gets old walking down the iconic Peacock Alley!

Last week we visited @silverbrookfarmweddings in preparation for filming their Virtual Venue Tour Video. This property was originally built in 1765, and is full of rustic charm. The current owner grew up here! Our favorite spot was the Chapel - it is the perfect, unique place for an intimate wedding. We can’t wait to show you more as we complete their video 🎥 Stay tuned!

One thing we are looking forward to most, post-quarentine? Nats games! B+G paid homage to their favorite team by inviting the Racing Presidents to their DC celebration! We love when couples incorporate elements of their personaliy into their wedding day ⚾️

V+S's multi-day Williamsburg nuptials were filled with vibrance, love and a whole lot of wow-factor! We love Indian weddings for their incorporation of color and culture into one incredible celebration ▪️ What makes us truly grateful is the opportunity to preserve every attribute that makes your wedding uniquely you ❤️

“May your choices reflect your hopes, not your fears.” - Nelson Mandela ▪️ Last week, @meganpollard reached out about spotlighting our business and our decision to pivot by offering Virtual Venue Tour Videos, on her new blog - #WeChooseJoy. Here is an excerpt from our interview: “…it has been wonderful to be able to help venues during this time. Without a venue and date, planning the rest of your wedding is pretty much impossible. By helping these venues secure new bookings, we are propelling the entire wedding planning process.” Read about what I saw on Instagram that inspired us to ultimately make this pivot. https://www.wechoosejoy.com/2020/04/24/voices-behind-the-choices/

Anyone else a @bravotv addict like us? We love the Real Housewives, but with all the cooking from home that’s been going on lately, we have really started to get into @bravotopchef 🍝 Did you know that executive chef @bryanvoltaggio of @conradwashingtondc’s restaurant @estuaryconraddc is a contestant on the show? ▪️ In January, we had the pleasure of partaking in an unforgettable dining experience created by Bryan Voltaggio, among some of our vendor friends. We look forward to seeing what he comes up with on tonight’s show, and can’t wait for more experiences like this soon enough ✨

We predict smaller weddings are going to gain popularity in the coming year. We may even see live streaming become part of the new normal. This makes hiring a videographer that has an observant and unobtrusive style key. We believe in not getting in the way of your most cherished day - but watching and capturing it naturally and authentically ▪️L+N said their “I Do’s” surrounded by 20 of their closest friends and family at the DC War Memorial last summer, and it was #SmallWeddingGoals in every way ✨ Are you planning an intimate wedding in 2021?

Happy Easter from our family to yours 🐰 One of our traditions is to look back on old family photos every holiday. From the monumental to the ordinary, reminiscing on all the great times brought us so much joy today. This shot was taken in 1997! Who thinks we should bring these looks back?
