Courtney and Jonathan's Wedding | Washington, D.C. Wedding Photographer

Back when the weather was still warm, I had the great privilege of assisting Moshe Zusman for yet another gorgeous wedding. This time, it was Courtney and Jonathan and the location was right in the heart of D.C. I got to meet everyone the night before at their rehearsal dinner at the  Hamilton Live, and I could tell right away this was going to be a great wedding!

The day started with Courtney getting ready at the W Hotel.

Courtney and Jonathan had their first look at the P.O.V. Rooftop Lounge and Terrace at the W Hotel, and there was still time to spare for some portraits before the ceremony.

Right before the ceremony was the signing of the Ketubah.

The ceremony was held outdoors at the Ronald Reagan Building. I loved all the flower petals, so pretty!

You can see how proud Jonathan's dad was. Not only was he the father of the groom, but Jonathan asked him to be his best man.

Father of the groom and sister of the bride (Maid of Honor). Both just beaming!

The dancing started off with all of the guests dancing the hora and the excitement lasted the rest of the night!
