A Look Inside the New Issue of Washingtonian Bride & Groom (Photos)

Check out the gorgeous gowns featured in “Road Trip Down the Aisle.”

The winter/spring issue of Washingtonian Bride & Groom is now on newsstands. From the hottest bridal trends to the best items to put on your registry, plus ten of the prettiest local real weddings, the issue is filled with information and inspiration to help plan your big day. One of our favorite parts of putting together each issue is always the gown fashion shoot, a two-day extravaganza of tulle, lace, organza, jewels, and some of the most beautiful wedding dresses of the season. The latest feature is inspired by a country road trip, and was shot primarily at the Baltimore Agricultural Center in Cockeysville, Maryland. The results are so effortlessly beautiful you’d never guess that our crew battled pouring rain, cold, and uncooperative lighting to bring this story to life.
