The hotel Monaco in downtown DC, is one the oldest buildings in America, and architecually, one of the most stylish I’ve ever seen. And as you can clearly see, Erin and Eric took full advantage of its many quiet hallways and private stairwells.
Ben & Lisa’s note -Thank you for being awesome friends and capturing the best days of our lives
For those of you who loved Lisa and Ben’s playful engagement pics, here the fun continues with their wedding pics! When we found out both Lisa and Ben were zealous skateboarders, we just couldn’t resist incorporating that into their wedding shoot. Lisa even decided to buy a new dress, just to be able to skateboard on her wedding day. She was originally going to wear her Chinese Qipao, which she wore for the engagement shoot in the Brooklyn Botanical Gardens, but decided it wasn’t a good match with her skateboard. Needless to say, she scored a winner at Bopkat Vintage,-a place which she describes, is like a museum. The selling floor only displays part of it’s entire collection, so ask a salesperson and dresses will appear.
We had a ball documenting Lisa and Ben’s special day and were honored to be a part of all the fun and games.
Lisa got her hat custom made to match the dress by Margaret Duncan of Bridal Veil Falls. She had this to say of them, Margaret (being super talented) was super detail oriented and would not let me take the hat home until she had seen the dress first. She designed the flowers on the hat and added the net to give it more pizazz. She was very accommodating and had my new hat ready for me within a day.
