Decatur House Wedding: Jeanna + Michael

This wedding. Oh man, oh man! What a good one it was! Jeanna + Michael were supposed to get married on May 30, 2020. But #thanksCOVID, everything was moved to a later date when DC started opening up again.

Jeanna and Mike were married in October (on a gloriously sunny day that felt like Spring) at the Decatur House. They hosted a brunch reception for their guests (because who doesn’t love brunch?) Jeanna + Michael both got ready at the Hay Adams Hotel directly across from the Decatur. I personally think everyone should get ready at the Hay. It was the most beautiful light no matter what room you are in.

They were also forced to cut their guest list down to 50 people. Whatever was thrown at them, they just went with it. Small weddings are quickly holding a special place in my heart. They are so intimate and you can really see all of your guests on your day.

Jeanna’s details had a spring feeling to them, but I feel like it still worked really well because the weather was so amazing. Stephanie with SRS Events did a phenomenal job putting such sweet details together for them. I was in detail heaven photographing all the fun things.

One thing I really loved about their wedding was how much they poured into all of their guests to really make them feel welcome. They even had a surprise visit via Facetime during their ceremony from a good friend. The officiant didn’t tell them until they had just finished their vows. He pulled out his phone and they saw a dear friend had been on Facetime the whole time listening to their ceremony. Jeanna + Mike were just overcome with this thoughtfulness.

Ok, ok, enough of my babbling. There are a ton of photos you need to see.

Thanks to all the amazing vendors who helped Jeanna + Michael with their dream wedding.
