Romantic, simple wedding at Chelsea Gardens, Dupont Circle, Washington DC


When I spoke to Kelly on the phone I knew I was in for some fun while documenting her wedding to her fiance Kelly…  the giggles I heard over the phone were the same heard throughout their special day.

Kelly and Kelly, along with a small group of their family and friends, traveled to Washington DC this month to be married in a small ceremony by officiant Tiffany Newman.  The  couple stayed at the gorgeous Akwaaba Bed and Breakfast, a literary themed B&B with 8 rooms decorated and tailored around African American authors and classic genres.  It’s a gorgeous location that I look forward to returning to soon!

The B&B is located literally around the corner from the ceremony location making the commute super easy and we couldn’t ask for better weather!

I’m privileged to have been able to document this special day and witness such genuine and powerful love.
