An Old Town Alexandria Wedding Laced with Family Tradition | DC Wedding Photographer


Kipp and Sarah’s wedding day was full of sweet moments and tons of support from their family and friends. It felt like standing in legacy. The ceremony was hosted at the Naval District Washington Chapel, where Sarah’s parents said “I do” forty years ago. And the reception was held upstairs at Josephine Brasserie & Bar, where her parents also celebrated their marriage on their wedding day. Altogether, this spring old town Alexandria wedding day turned out just perfect for the happy couple!

A Glimpse of Their Story

Kipp and Sarah’s paths first crossed almost eleven years ago in one of the most “DC” ways possible: at a happy hour! But they didn’t start dating until 2017. Four years later, Kipp popped the question at Old Ebbitt Grill in Washington, DC.

When they first reached out to me with their story, it felt so typical of DC romance yet so sweet! I immediately joined Team Kipp & Sarah, and they joined the ENP Family. You can check out their engagement session with me in Georgetown HERE.

A Beautiful Spring Wedding Day

As for their spring old town Alexandria wedding day, it couldn’t have turned out more beautiful. Despite the weather threatening rain earlier in the week, we only got rained out during our would-be sunset portraits. The rest of the day was sunny and cool. The day was filled with Sarah’s perfectly picked spring palette, gorgeous florals from The Enchanted Florist, and of course lots of love and support from their friends and family.

Sarah’s bridesmaids were some of the friendliest, warmest and most welcoming group of girls I had the pleasure of hanging out with. I witnessed some really sweet moments through my lens, such as when Kipp teared up watching Sarah walk down the aisle. And I couldn’t help but capture the sweet tears between Sarah and her dad during their daddy-daughter dance. The emotions of the day show the depth of each moment. It’s what I love to photograph most!

I hope these images make you feel like you were there, right alongside the happy couple on their happiest day. And don’t miss out on some of my favorite shots, like the decorations Kipps friends added to his white mustang, the cute sisterly moments between Sarah and her maid of honor Abby, and the gorgeous flow of Sarah’s wedding dress when she twirled for portraits! Perfection!
