Sarah and Bryan’s Chevy Chase, Maryland wedding started off in a special location, as Sarah arrived at her childhood home to get ready.
We had been looking forward to this fall wedding ever since we had the pleasure of spending a spring day among the cherry blossom trees in Washington, DC for their cherry blossom engagement session!
Their Chevy Chase, Maryland wedding began as every wedding should, full of joy as everyone scurried around, perfecting their hair and makeup and getting ready to help Sarah with her final touches.
There was a brief halt in getting ready as one of her bridesmaids and oldest childhood friend presented her with an album filled with memories of the two of them. After lots of laughter and hugs as they strolled down memory lane it was time to get dressed!
Sarah’s mother and bridesmaids gathered in her mother’s room to help her with the dress and once her jewelry was put on and the veil was perfectly placed in her hair, it was time to head to the country club!
A limo was waiting outside to drive everyone to the ceremony. A young neighbor peeked into the limo and offered Sarah a bouquet of flowers picked from his yard and wished her a happy wedding day!
We arrived at the country club and it was off to the first look.
Bryan was waiting for Sarah on the balcony overlooking the golf course. She walked out onto the veranda and greeted him with tears in her eyes.
As he turned around he gasped and told her she took his breath away.
Once they had taken each other in, we had time for some quick portraits out on the rolling hills of the golf course before the wedding ceremony.
The reception was held in a beautiful ballroom with French doors that led out onto the balcony.
Guests enjoyed the beautiful fall night air by relaxing out on the veranda and gazing at the full moon, while treated by an elaborate dessert bar complete with cupcakes from the local Georgetown Cupcake.
The dancing continued late into the night and the bride and groom were bid farewell by their guests waving ribbon wands as they paraded out of the club and into their awaiting limousine.
They rode off into the night very happily married.
We wish you a lifetime filled with love, laughter and adventure Sarah + Bryan!
