Fresh & Modern D.C. Real Wedding by Abby Jiu Photography
Posted by Kate. Filed under Real Weddings

Sara and Mark’s modern, Washington, D.C. wedding reflected their love of family, travel and our nation’s capitol! Held at an old car showroom-turned-art-gallery, we’re reveling in the unique contrast of natural elements with an urban industrial setting. Sara and Mark could’ve cared less about executing some theme or color palette, but rather, they focused on hosting a warm, comfortable and fun party for their nearest and dearest. It’s just a total bonus that the contemporary florals, fabulous paper goods and amazing venue make this wedding so fresh!  A special thanks to the incredibly talented Abby Jiu for sharing these photos with us!

Sara and Mark started dating just before Mark was sent to California and Naples, Italy for his work with the Navy. Their long distance relationship persevered as a result of a strong foundation (they had been friends for years in law school), dozens of trips to each coast and to Italy, and daily phone calls.  Plus, it’s pretty clear they’re made for each other.  Doesn’t Sara just glow in her Lela Rose gown and pretty pulled-back hairstyle?


The Longview Gallery in D.C. made for an extraordinary venue; natural light surrounded them as they said their vows. The couple made it a priority to support some of their favorite local businesses during the course of their planning. They also drew inspiration from Naples, Italy- where they spent lots of time together while Mark was stationed overseas.

The reception was warm and celebratory; the gallery glowed with candlelight.  Now that’s what we call a modern classic.

    Interesting post right here. One thing I would like to say is that most professional career fields consider the Bachelor’s Degree as the entry level requirement for an online college diploma. Though Associate Certifications are a great way to start, completing your own Bachelors uncovers many good opportunities to various careers, there are numerous on-line Bachelor Diploma Programs available coming from institutions like The University of Phoenix, Intercontinental University Online and Kaplan. Another issue is that many brick and mortar institutions provide Online types of their diplomas but generally for a greatly higher price than the providers that specialize in online course programs.

    I know this if off topic but I’m looking into starting my own weblog and was curious what all is needed to get set up? I’m assuming having a blog like yours would cost a pretty penny? I’m not very internet savvy so I’m not 100% certain. Any tips or advice would be greatly appreciated. Many thanks
