Magical. Breathtaking. Simply unbelievable. Copeland and Elliot's wedding was an absolute dream, and we still can't get over their snowy wedding day! We were so excited to travel to Washington, DC for Copeland's wedding after photographing her sister's wedding last year! She has one of the sweetest families, and we knew it was going to be another fun day with some wonderful people. However, we were a little nervous when we saw snow in the forecast, and we were really hoping Copeland wouldn't have to change her plans for her dream to get married outside of the Meridian House in the grove of Spanish linden trees. On the day of the wedding, the snow kept coming down, and Elliot and Copeland made the decision to continue to have their ceremony outside, and it couldn't have been better! Thomas and I exchanged so many glances of amazement at how beautiful it was during the ceremony!
Elliot and Copeland met at the Meridian, so it was the perfect location for their wedding day. I don't think too many couples can say they got married where they met! It was an elegant, classy wedding, and we loved every detail -Copeland's lace, pearls, and Carolina blue shoes, her fur shawl, the bulb lights strung across the linden trees, the chandeliers, the timeless white flowers, and the SNOW, of course! On top of all the beautiful details, it was so special to watch their two families join together, both at the rehearsal dinner and during the wedding day. Elliot's family traveled all the way from France for the wedding. His uncle gave a speech in French during the ceremony, which made it an even more unique and meaningful day for them.
Anyhow, we are just so thankful for the amazing couples we get to work with! Copeland was not only the most detail-oriented, organized bride (making our day so easy!), but she was also incredibly thoughtful and kind. She made sure we were completely taken care of with traveling to DC, and she also checked on me right before her ceremony to make sure I had a chance to feed my baby - seriously, who is selflessly thinking about other people like that when they are just about to get married?!
Enjoy our favorite photos from their wedding! Sometimes pictures just don't do moments like this justice. Congratulations, Copeland and Elliot! We are so happy for you, and we will forever remember this beautiful day!
