Last summer we had the pleasure to work with Morgan and Dan for their al fresco backyard wedding with the talented Julie Napear Photography!  Morgan and Dan are a creative, fun loving and ambitious couple, who met, live and work in NYC but were both raised in the Washington, DC area. Their wedding was an incredible weekend of love, laughter and quality time with family and friends.

Here is part 1 of their day, all photos by Julie Napear Photography and the highlight video by Mwendo Films (see the full vendor list below).

Morgan and her lovely bridesmaids spent the morning hanging out in the house, I loved her natural bridal style. Make-up was provided by Kelley Unthank and hair by Desirae Greenberg from Dry Bar.

Morgan and Dan took advantage of the beautiful day and home by doing a “first look” right outside and then took wedding party photos before the ceremony.

I loved her bouquet of sunflowers and blue delphinium made by a local florist, Diane Noll.
