Jessica & Matt’s Carlyle Club wedding in Alexandria was such a good time.  The highlight for me was definitely Matt’s spirited dancing as the reception reached its waning hours.

Carlyle Club Wedding

Like many weddings we have had this year, Jessica & Matt’s wedding day was a rainy one.  No worries, rainy days are pretty much our specialty. It’s always nice to see past clients again and even cooler when the bridal prep is at the home of Melissa & David, our previous clients, where you can see wedding photos you took of them on their walls.  The bridal party had a great time there while the groomsmen got ready at the Westin Alexandria. After a lovely ceremony at Hope UCC the torrential downpours washed out our plans to do portraits in Old Town.  Our backup plan was to use the wonderfully unique space at the Carlyle Club which worked out great.

The reception was a great time highlighted by lots of Alabama chants and quite a few dance offs.  Punctuated by a late night delivery of McDonald’s Cheeseburgers and a sparkler exit.
