When you think of the National Arboretum as an engagement shoot spot, you typically think of the trees, blossoms, and general natural beauty of the setting. But we also love the arboretum’s National Capitol Columns as a shoot location—it gives the photos a mysterious, almost gothic feel that’s so edgy and cool. Props to Carmen Wang Photography for these photos.

Talk about staying true to a color scheme—navy and bright sunflower yellow is what this wedding’s all about. We love the use of blue glass bottles in the decor, as well as the bride’s super-cute short dress.

Um, an ombré wedding cake? We’re in love with this Virginia Indian wedding.

There are several area wedding venues that give off that Gone With the Wind, Southern-plantation feel—and Whitehall Manor is one of them. Love the combination of rustic and elegant in this wedding.

    I'm always fascinated whenever I see pre-nuptial photography because it's very artistic. When we had our union at the wedding halls in Long Island, a powerpoint presentation of our pre-nuptial photos were shown and tears just went rolling down my face at that moment.
