Erica + Adam’s Charming Countryside Wedding | Washington, D.C.
Erica and Adam’s fall wedding at the Trump National Golf Club in Washington DC was definitely one for the books! We started the day with Erica and her bridesmaids, getting pampered in the on-site bridal suite. Every part of the property was just gorgeous. Erica looked like a real life princess in her ZAKAA Bride dress and all of her beautiful bridesmaids around her. I especially loved getting to photograph their gorgeous details. Their invitation suite had a beautiful blush and purple motif, and Erica’s engagement ring was breathtaking. I loved the sapphires they incorporated into her ring!
After she was all glammed up, Erica did a first look with her dad. He was so excited and so happy to see her. There wasn’t a dry eye to be seen. Although her first look with her dad was touching, Erica’s first look with Adam melted my heart. They took their time and shared some personal vows with each other. Despite their best efforts to stay stoic, they both failed to hold back their happy tears! The atmosphere around these two was palpable of love, and the electricity in the air between Erica and Adam could be felt by everyone. We followed up their first look with some portraits of the full wedding party. Everyone looked so elegant! The property had so many wonderful backdrops for photos.
Before we knew it, it was time for the ceremony.
They had a beautiful ceremony out in front of the golf course. Erica and Adam kept a simple, romantic theme with white and blush flowers to compliment the rolling hills. They celebrated with friends and family from all over the world in a traditional, religious ceremony. After they said “I do”, you could feel the joy radiating from them both as they walked back down the aisle. Especially Adam, who had a newfound pep in his step as he escorted his wife out of the ceremony. Their smiles were contagious as everyone cheered them on.
Erica and Adam wanted to focus on romantic fall portraits during sunset, which turned out to be some of my favorites of all time! We all had so much fun exploring the property. There were giggles, snuggles, and lots of sweet kisses from the newlyweds. Their romantic, classic attire looked extra stunning against the fall backdrop. It was a little chilly out, so Erica brought out a beautiful fur stole for some of the photos. It was the perfect touch for such a picturesque couple!
Finally, we headed to the reception. The room was so elegant and full of beautiful touches! I especially loved their gold airplane bottle opener favors. The gold, blush, and white color scheme continued inside and made the whole room feel romantic and glowy. Erica and Adam shared their first dance, and Erica and her dad followed with the father daughter dance. They stole the show with their choreographed dance! We ended the night with a beautiful sparkler exit as the newlyweds were whisked away to wedded bliss.
Congratulations to Erica and Adam! It was such an honor to be a part of your special day.
