Katy is from the state of Washington, Mike is from NYC ; they found each other and love in Washington, DC. We loved working with these two for their wedding at The Whittemore House in Dupont Circle. Their wedding included meaningful details, such as bird cages in remembrance of Mike’s grandfather and Katy’s favorite Washington State wines.  Plus these two lovebirds are one of the sweetest couples! Here is part one of their day by Andrea Zajonc Photography (you can see more from Katy and Mike’s wedding via the photographer’s blog):

Katy and her bridesmaids started the day getting ready together with Jordan K. Winn & Co. Katy wore a beautiful and etherial wedding dress from BHLDN and her bridesmaids coordinated in navy chiffon dresses from Watters.

Katy and Mike decided to take advantage of the beautiful day and do photos around Dupont and Georgetown before the ceremony. The “first look” is always one of our favorite parts of the day. Andrea Zajonc Photography, did a phenomenal job capturing their love and excitement!
