* Shandi and Justin


I met Shandi a few years ago when I photographed an event she organized for the Breast Cancer Coalition in DC. Then I photographed her friends' wedding, Bonnie and Eric, in 2005. So it was like seeing an old friend when I traveled to DC for Shandi's wedding to Justin last weekend.

The beautiful Shandi with her new husband.
Everything is lush and in blooming in DC!I have seen these countdown clocks before, but never seen one on the actual wedding day. Too cute!
The beautiful St. Veronica Catholic Church in Chantilly, VA.The theme of the day was pink! Check out these fabulous shoes!There was a very large bridal party and all the ladies were in pink and orange.
The reception room was lit in pink and the beautiful flowers were shades of pink and orange.

This was a first! Shandi and Justin decorated Bonnie and Eric's wedding night suite during their wedding reception and I took a picture of Justin laying across the bed surrounded in rose petals. Bonnie and Eric wanted to return the favor and kick it up a notch for Shandi and Justin's wedding night suite for their picture. Um, I think they did!
Thanks again for everything, Shandi and Justin. I loved spending your special day with you. I hope your honeymoon to the Dominican Republic was just as beautiful as your wedding day!
