On Saturday January 31st, I photographed an elegant wedding reception at the Mayflower Renaissance Hotel in Washington DC. Bride Dawn and her groom Wes were married in a small court house ceremony during the fall, and threw a magnificent reception to celebrate their union. In the enormous bridal suite, Dawn got ready surrounded by her daughters. For their first look, Dawn and Wes met at the entrance to the bridal suite, in a lovely domed room with faux sky ceiling. We took formal photos in the amazing grand hall way of the hotel, then went upstairs to the mezzanine for cocktail hour. Upon their entrance into the Promenade Ballroom, Wes and Dawn performed an elaborate dance in perfect unison. The entire evening was a wonderful testament to the couples fun loving energy and grace.
