When I try to picture the coolest possible venue in downtown in DC, Mess Hall is that place. Nestled in some of the hippest neighborhoods downtown, Mess Hall has an effortless cool-kid vibe from the urban loading dock ceremony space to the upscale graffiti on the outside of the building, to the minimalist warehouse interior… I was obsessed with it all!
Enter Emilia and Spencer. If I could draw up just a few words to describe these two, authentic, chill, and FUN are the ones I’d pick! Emilia and Spencer were actually married already as Emilia grew up in Australia and that was the location for their original ceremony, so their downtown soiree was a gorgeous second ceremony officiated by one of their best friends! We started the day just the three of us exploring the monuments downtown and taking our time grabbing photos of Emilia and Spencer at some of their favorite spots! We visited the Capitol, Washington Monument, DC War Memorial, and finally, the National Arboretum and these have to be some of my all time favorite wedding portraits! If any of you are on the fence about seeing your partner before the ceremony… none of these photos downtown would have been possible without it!
It’s absolutely impossible for me to pick a favorite moment from this incredible day so without further ado… enjoy these gorgeous photographs!
