The Long View Gallery in Washington, D.C. was the coolest creative space Tyler and Gerry could have chosen for their intimate winter wedding. This sweet bride was an artist and her artistic touch was felt in every detail of the day. She designed and hand-lettered the stunning invitation suite and calligraphed each envelope for their guests. She and her mom spent the engagement season gathering unique pieces for their reception and her calligraphy was found on every single place-setting. There is something so special about knowing a bride put her heart and soul into planning the day she’s dreamed about since she was a little girl- especially when you get to witness the fruit of that labor. Tyler and Gerry planned such a beautiful day and the BEST party! With the perfect first look at the Daughters of the American Revolution building in downtown D.C. and the most exciting band we’ve ever seen at a reception- this was a wedding we’ll never forget.
We met up with T + G in Washington, D.C. on Friday for a quick engagement shoot and got to spend Friday with their families for the rehearsal and dinner afterwards. Family is so important to these two and that theme was woven through every detail of the weekend. The bridal party was made up of siblings only, so every moment was celebrated by the people closest to them.
Gerry was born in England and met his bride in college at UVA; Tyler is a painter and was inspired to start her own business Fifty-Five Candles. We were super excited when we learned that Tyler and Gerry had chosen to work with Karson Butler Events as their month-of coordinators. These girls are filled to the brim with talent and it was fun getting to know them over the weekend.
Tyler and Gerry, we loved getting to know you guys and your sweet families. Thank you for sharing your special weekend with us and allowing us to capture the celebration! Enjoy a few of our favorites from your day!
