I basically have limited words to describe how joyous, magical, and FUN Karen and Evan’s Dumbarton House wedding was. I had the pleasure of photographing their engagement session in Annapolis a few months ago and, even during our consultation in March, knew I was going to adore working with these two. Their Dumbarton House wedding did not disappoint in the slightest because i. am. obsessedddd with these two (and their venue!)
From the start to the end of the day of their Georgetown wedding, I felt like I couldn’t stop smiling! Every single element added into Karen and Evan’s day was intentional and well thought out, from the accessories to the receptions details. Their family & friends were so fun and welcoming, along with just loving on Karen and Evan during this exciting day.
One of my favorite parts of their wedding was being able to photograph Karen and Evan calling her parents that sadly couldn’t be there. You could see the joy on everyone’s faces as they got to talk to Karen’s parents, have Karen’s dad deliver a speech via phone call, and just relish in the fact that their family & friends traveled so far.
About the Couple:
Karen and Evan,
You are two of the kindest, most warm people I’ve gotten the pleasure to work with! I adore you both and am so, incredibly excited that you two are spending the rest of your lives together! Here’s to forever, friends. Enjoy your sneak peek!! ❤️
About Dumbarton House and it’s Mission:
This Georgetown wedding venue and historic house was created in 1927, when “the National Board of The National Society of the Colonial Dames of America (NSCDA) approved that the Society should “acquire an old, historic Colonial house, in its domicile, Washington City, and maintain it as a museum, or educational center, for the collection, care and display of American arts of the Colonial Period; to be open to the public under suitable restrictions, so that it might worthily illustrate the character and objects of the Society.”
“The mission of Dumbarton House, the national headquarters of The National Society of The Colonial Dames of America (NSCDA), is to support the NSCDA Corporate Societies and their members; to maintain an historic museum property, which serves as a resource for the NSCDA nationally; and to contribute to the cultural life of the surrounding community.
Through the interpretation of its historic site and collections, the Dumbarton House Museum promotes the understanding of historic preservation and of the early history of our nation, so that the lives and ideals of early Americans inspire current and future generations.”
