We couldn't believe how fast the evening went by! We started with a cocktail hour and had our friend Kevin James play some lovely Irish folk music. Before we knew it, it was time for introductions, dinner, toasts, and then some crazy dancing! We ended the night with a great send-off from our friends and family and an enthusiastic petal toss!

After some quick portraits at the church and near the Mall, we headed back to the hotel for cocktail hour!

I was really nervous while we were getting ready, but once we got to the church, the whole world became still (except for the bagpiper!). My nerves faded once we walked into the church and we had a near-flawless ceremony. Only three minor glitches: 1) the church coordinator queued the music early -- while one of the BMs was in the bathroom! 2) my veil fell out during the ceremony, but the husband, quick thinking that he is, grabbed it and stuck it back on my head where it didn't move until I took it off at the start of the reception! And 3) our ring bearer choked, but he still looked really cute!

We had an evening wedding, so we had all day to get ready at the hotel, which was a good thing because the time flew by!

The girls had fun in the suite getting ready, and we snacked all morning long on a trolley of treats sent up to us by the hotel manager.

My niece was sooooo excited to ride in the limo for the first time!

I loved how our epics turned out...thanks to our very talented photographer Jaime Windon! We started out at the Capitol Building and a bright and sunny September day...

Later, we moved on to the 14th street area, where we took some more casual shots after a quick wardrobe change! We loved how everything came out!
