Summer Joy at Oatlands Plantation

“Undeniable fact: this alfresco wedding captured by Lisa Zeising for Abby Jiu Photographyis gorgeous. Every last floral-filled inch will make your heart skip a beat. But when you really start to peel back the layers, you'll find the cutest personalized details tucked inside. Things like a paper floral seating card wall, a liquid courage cart to get guests on the dance floor and mini tacos + margaritas for nibbling all planned by Roberts and Co Events + florals by J Morris Flowers. See the beauty unfold right here!”

Fall Details on United with Love

This cute couple wanted to make sure their guest felt welcomed through the night. Love the classic architecture and the fall color theme. My favorite part has to be the little party animals escort cards.

So happy that Modern Bridal Studio could be a part of this lovely event.

Sweet Vibes Congressional Country Club

Super sweet fun vibes at this gorgeous wedding last spring. So happy to share the beautiful photos of Christine and Mike that were featured on Washingtonian this April.

Fresh Spring Beauty in Alexandria

What a beautiful event! I am always in love with mint dresses. Kathleen was simply stunning with her down hair style and natural makeup. Becca B Photography shot some beautiful images of the group in Old Town Alexandria, just blocks away from where our studio is located. The girls got ready at one of my most loved locations: Hotel Monaco. My favorite image is the group trolly pic.

Alice was the sweetest bride! Her esthetic had a west coast vibe with casual elegance. Through out each step of the process we had a great time, she was the type of client I hope to stay connected with for a long time. Her wedding was featured twice on Style Me Pretty, once for best of 2015. Joey Kennedy is a very talented wedding & editorial photographer.

Melissa's wedding was full of romantic charm with a vintage feel. Jodi Miller did a lovely job with the photos capturing each detail with love. The wedding was at Hotel Monaco in Old Town Alexandria, right around the corner from our studio. The hair and makeup was kept natural and in a soft side swept undo.
