Nicole + Dave :: Washington, DC :: Wedding Photography

It’s not easy to plan a wedding. If planning a wedding is like trying to thread 100 needles, then planning a wedding in time for cherry blossoms is like trying to thread 1000 of them…with someone else’s hands…while blindfolded :). Nicole and Dave exchanged their vows along the Tidal Basin in front of the Jefferson Memorial, a spectacular backdrop even without the blooms. A violinist played under a nearby tree, with the sound of the Tidal Basin lapping quietly in the background. Quite truthfully, everything was just…perfect :).
