On this Wedding Wednesday I’m excited to share photos from Bryan and Searle’s Washington, D.C. courthouse wedding that took place last Friday! Bryan and Searle invited their immediate families to D.C. for a weekend of celebration, kicking off with their civil ceremony at the Superior Court of D.C. It was the absolute *perfect* D.C. fall day for a wedding and magic hour portraits and I can’t wait to show you how beautiful their day turned out!
Bryan and Searle have the kind of love story I just adore. The kind of story where you can see the pieces fitting together so easily, so naturally, where you know it was truly written in the stars. Bryan and Searle’s love was meant to be.
They met through the introductory brochure at the beginning of graduate and law school. Searle was excited to see a fellow classmate was from his home town and reached out to connect thinking it would be good to have a road trip buddy when going home for holidays. They met up for dinner shortly thereafter, and as Searle put it, it was love at first sight! They’ve been inseparable ever since, straight up to last Friday and their Washington, D.C. courthouse wedding!
I met up with Searle and Bryan over the summer to learn more about the wedding they had planned and got to know them over some ice cold rosé. I learned all about their pet bunny, Oscar, and how they were confident their love could outshine the gross lighting inside the courthouse’s ceremony room! And they were right, their love totally shined brighter than that icky yellow light! haha
After their sweet civil ceremony, we Lyfted up to Rosedale Conservancy for family portraits and newlywed portraits. There was even a special guest who joined us for a few shots: Oscar the bunny! He was a little timid and apprehensive about the whole thing since he’s not used to being out of the safety of his home, but he was a trooper for his dads’ big day!
To the newlyweds, Bryan and Searle – may your marriage be as magical as the golden hour light on your wedding day, and may your love always shine brighter than those icky courthouse bulbs!
