One of my favorite parts of a wedding day are the toasts. The closest people to the bride and groom stand up and talk about how wonderful they are for a few minutes, and that is such a fun way to me to get to know even more about the couples I photograph. Tommy and Kristin’s family and friends gave some of the most beautiful toasts I’ve ever heard to the couple over the course of the weekend, and among all of the funny stories and warm wishes there seemed to be a common theme: Tommy and Kristin were created to be each others perfect match. They talked about how Kristin came into Tommy’s life at the exact right moment to bring a little more beauty, joy, and laughter into his world. They talked about how Kristin’s infectious smile seems to suddenly grow when she talks about Tommy. They talked about how Kristin and Tommy are two of the most loving, genuine friends they have ever had, and how perfectly suited for one another they are. Everyone was overjoyed to be celebrating as Tommy and Kristin became husband and wife this past Saturday, and their day was absolutely beautiful from start to finish!
Tommy and Krisin were married at The Cathedral of Saint Matthew the Apostle, a gorgeous cathedral in Washington DC and had their reception at the Corcoran Gallery of Art, one of the most beautiful buildings in the city!
