Katherine and Chris have the most unlikely of wedding stories and you can read it in the VIP Alexandria! Pick up a print copy at one of 250+ local stores or online here. This couple was such a joy to work with before, during and after the wedding! I get so invested in my couples and want them to have an incredible wedding day experience. But even more I want them to have plenty of pictures, so they remember every bit of the love and celebration! Our memories are directly tied to our pictures. The pictures are so important. And this day was amazing; I know they’ll never forget it!
While Woodlawn has been around a while – the home had a romantic start as a wedding gift from George Washington to his granddaughter – it’s only very recently evolved into one of the very best wedding venues in Alexandria and all of northern Virginia and Washington, DC. The historic mansion is stunning backdrop for a wedding ceremony, especially with lovely white flowers in a moon arch. And guests can tour the historic home during the cocktail hour, which is held in a cozy garden courtyard with a foundation and cafe lights strung across. Dinner is served in a permanent tent with tabby concrete floor and chandeliers. The grounds and home are gorgeous for pictures in so many nooks and crannies, inside and out.
If you’re searching for the best wedding venue in northern Virginia to make once in a lifetime memories, this is one to visit! And one venue I hope to be photographing many more weddings at in the years to come!
