Christel and David were so much fun to work with! We were excited to hear all about their plans for a spring wedding with French touches to honor Christel’s heritage. They chose the Mormon Temple in Kensington for their ceremony and the elegant Hotel Monaco DC for their reception.
Photography is not permitted inside the temple, so we awaited Christel and David’s grand exit as husband and wife, alongside family and friends. The outside of the temple is beautiful, so we took advantage of the nearby grounds for portraits before heading to Lafayette Park for more images – this time with some beautiful blooming trees!
Later in the day, Christel and David gathered with friends and family for a ring ceremony. Rings are not traditionally exchanged during a Mormon wedding ceremony, so the happy couple took the opportunity to share that moment before kicking off their fun reception.
As always, the ballroom at the Hotel Monaco was a fantastic setting for dinner and dancing. A Croquembouche added a special continental touch to the event! We worked with some wonderful wedding professionals who helped make the day perfect for all.
