Classic black tie DC wedding | Abby Grace Photography

I don’t know how I got lucky enough to photograph these two- the word “grateful” doesn’t even begin to cover it. From the moment I met them, I knew they were a signature Abby Grace couple! The way he talks about Kara, it’s the way every girl dreams of being regarded by their soon-to-be-husband. He’s utterly captivated by her; completely in love, charmed, enraptured. And Kara? She’s the very definition of a blushing, elated bride; one whose smile stretches wider at the mention of his name, whose happy tears just kept coming throughout the day, whose joy is made all the more effervescent by her groom.

There just aren’t words to tell you how much I love these two. Photographing their day was one of the greatest honors I’ve had all year- their bliss was my own, and I honestly can’t think of a better way to have spent a Saturday in November than by documenting their euphoria.

Steve, Kara, I’m beholden to you both for extending me the opportunity to photograph your wedding day. Thank you both for being so authentically you throughout your wedding day, for loving organically, and for welcoming Ethan & I in as friends as your families united. I love you both so much, and I hope the pitons of St. Lucia are treating you SO well right now!
