She’d been gone for four weeks, studying abroad in London. They’d done long distance before while attending different colleges, but an hour away was so much easier than an ocean away. For Patrick, it was torture. He missed his other half. For Ginny, it was bittersweet. She was exploring the world but all without her favorite person, and she was ready to go home to her other half. On Ginny’s return, when Patrick took her out to dinner, she expected to spend the evening sharing stories and catching up over the last month, but Patrick had other plans. Plans to make sure that this girl that he loved wouldn’t have to travel alone ever again. So over a private dinner at one of their favorite restaurants, Ginny agreed to marry the man that she’d known she loved since their second date.
Ginny and Patrick planned a chic D.C. wedding and the celebration this past weekend was nothing short of wonderful. Not even frigid temperatures or leftover snow could keep the warm smiles off of the faces of these two. With plenty of sparkle, dozens of roses (only appropriate for this couple’s last name!), and one of the most romantic wedding gowns I’ve ever photographed, Ginny and Patrick’s friends and family came together and celebrated a day completely filled with love.
Introducing: Mr. and Mrs. Rose
I’m a Steve Madden lover myself, so I was head over heels with this sparkly pair!
I truly could have photographed Ginny’s beautiful bouquet all afternoon…
Ginny, lady!! You are an absolutely glowing bride!
There’s always time for a wedding selfie…
And they’re married!!
I won’t lie, it was a COLD afternoon, but you would never know with this incredible bridal party!
The guys really wanted to booty pop. I couldn’t not oblige…
Absolutely gorgeous, Ginny.
I’m not sure if these two could be any more adorable even if they tried…
Be still my heart…
Top of the Town in Arlington has some incredible views of the National Mall!
Then the party really got started…
Congratulations, you two! Hope you’re enjoying some well-deserved WARMTH in Florida!
