Mayflower Hotel DC J&M Anniversaries: Abby Grace & Matt

Happy Monday friends! Today we get to kick off the week here on the blog with the BEST kind of beautiful, and that is the vow renewal and J&M Anniversaries shoot we did for the amazing Abby Grace & Matt in Washington DC. Abby is an incredible photographer herself, which is always such an honor. And even more so because this is actually the second shoot we’ve gotten to with these guys after their NYC anniversary session a couple years ago. We just LOVE the both of them so much, and they are such a beautiful example of what love & marriage should be.

There was something even more amazing about this day, and I think that’s because not only was this an anniversary session but these two also had their families (who we loved!! They were all so wonderful!) meet up with us at one of the memorials so that they could promise forever in front of them again. And when they did, I don’t think there was a dry eye (mine included!) around! Also, they decided to start the day by getting ready together at the beautiful & iconic Mayflower Hotel in DC and those have officially turned into some of our favorite getting ready photos EVER! I loved how they kept everything so elegant & classic, from Abby’s BHLDN lace dress to the stunning bouquet that Holly Chapple put together for her. And when you add to that, that we ended the night at Ted’s Bulletin for some homemade pop tarts with two people who have become some of our dearest friends…the whole day was really a total DREAM!

Abby & Matt we LOVE you guys & we love your love! We are SO honored to call you friends!

SO much love!
J&M

    Speechless.

  2. Abby Grace

    J&M, oh my gosh. We just sat and looked through these together, and I can’t begin to tell you how much I already know we’ll cherish these for years to come. It was such a dream of a day, and you captured it flawlessly! And as romantic as all of the portraits at the memorials are, if I HAD to pick a favorite? I think it might be the last one. Because that’s us in one of our happy places. [And because Matt looks like a total babe in that photo]. WE LOVE YOU!!
