Iron Gate Wedding | DC | Brian and Liz
Iron Gate Wedding in DC.
Without a doubt, one of my favorite things about my job is that I meet the coolest people. And sometimes, those cool people become friends. We love meeting up with Brian and Liz for happy hours and dinner swaps! We are so pleased to have photographed their wedding.
Getting to know Brian and Liz, we knew every part of their wedding would be chosen with care to reflect their love and their fun and goofy personalities. They made sure that everyone at their wedding had a unique role bestowed upon them because of how important they are to them as a couple.
It only made sense that the wedding was in a place that they love: DC. They recently bought a home together, and they love the vibrancy and history in the district.
The Line Hotel
They chose the getting ready spot with care because they wanted a comfortable, chic place to get ready and to do their first look. The Line Hotel in Adams Morgan was the perfect spot!
The first look was at the rooftop of the hotel, with killer views of the city. It started overcast, but that gave a really lovely and muted look to their photos. Then the crazy DC weather turned, and the day ended up sunny, so best of both worlds for their photos. Never let the weather get you down for your wedding!
The Iron Gate
The ceremony spot was stunning, a hidden gem of a venue in Dupont, The Iron Gate. Think magical secret garden under a lush and green canopy of ivy. Just spectacular.
Their friend Anthony did an amazing job officiating their ceremony; he’s witnessed their entire journey from friends to dating to marriage. It was important to Brian and Liz that the person who signed their marriage licenses knew and loved them.
Two words: Brunch Wedding. Everybody loves them! Iron Gate Restaurant handles all the catering (amazing desserts too!), and they have a fantastic event staff and on-site venue coordinator which made the day go so smoothly.
The guests mingled, ate and enjoyed the beautiful surroundings on the central patio and another brick patio on the side of the building which gave the event an open, expansive feel in the intimate space.
Brian and Liz, we were so honored to be there to capture your wedding day memories, and we’re ever happier to call you friends. Can we buy you a drink soon?
