Love at First Flight – DC Wedding Style
Sounds like the title of a new Hallmark movie, right? But this one’s even better–it’s actually a real life love story!
Josh was just a cute stranger on Erin’s return flight into Washington DC, where she was flying back from a conference that they both had unknowingly attended. To spark a conversation, Erin commented on the book Josh was reading, and they chatted away from there. At the end of the flight they said goodbye and went their separate ways, but Erin realized she didn’t want that to be the end of their friendship. All she knew about Josh was his name, where he worked, and that he would be running a race that weekend. All that’s just about all Josh knew about Erin too–but that was enough for the “light internet stalking” power to win!
A beautiful wedding at the WWI DC War Memorial, during Cherry Blossom Season.
The perfect place for a small and intimate ceremony shared with Josh and Erin’s closest and dearest friends. Due to its setting along the National Mall, the World War l Memorial carried a sense of not only US history as a whole, but also the military history of the couple. With the groom’s sister officiating, the bride’s daughter Emily was included in the ceremony to create the absolute sweetest moment that made the entire party present tear up. I personally loved how she was listening so intently to the vows to her too. So sweet!
The reception afterwards was held in Arlington, VA, at Fort Myer – Patton Hall, where the happiness and joy continued fueled by the amazing Sugar Shack donuts, which were a favorite of all!
