Courtney sat in her room wearing her personalized “bride” robe smiling from ear to ear, twirling her engagement ring around her finger and recounting stories of her and Damon to all those around her. She was ready for her wedding day and wanted to cherish every moment, breath and scent. It was as she most eloquently said, ‘the single most memorable day of her life.’ Courtney spent her time getting ready in a swank hotel in Georgetown. She was surrounded by the woman who loved her most, her mothers, sister and bridesmaids. This was a day eight years in the making and a day she wanted to remember every last detail forever.
Damon was across town rehashing the same sentiments with his own family. His brother was assisting Damon get ready, telling jokes at Damon’s expense and laughing all the way. After getting ready, Damon spent a good amount of time with his parents and family, listening to fatherly and brotherly advice about marriage, intermixed with talk of sports, work and always a few jokes for good measure.
Their wedding ceremony took place less than a mile away from their engagement session location on a gorgeous spring day on Georgetown University’s campus. The Dahlgren Chapel of the Sacred Heart, was immaculate, but brightened up even more so by the glow and smile on Damon’s face as he waited for his bride to be walk down the aisle. They say that once a couple is married, their faces glow with affection for one another. Courtney and Damon glowed even 5 hours after the ceremony. Their smiles never once left their faces, maybe it was due to Damon whispering “I love you” over and over throughout the day, or maybe it was Courtney’s smile that melted Damon’s heart. Or perhaps it was simply because the day these two have been dreaming about for their entire lives was finally here. Whatever the reason, their sheer happiness was infectious as everyone smiled, laughed and told memorable stories about couple.
As the evening progressed, Courtney and Damon led their guest to the Historic Ronald Reagan building for their reception. Their reception took place in the Pavilion room and was simply exceptional from their astounding décor, magnificent windows and sky lighting to the personalized table settings and scrumptious food. Their guests made toasts in honor of the couple that would make one cry of sentiment and thoughtfulness after or laugh until your stomach hurt. The toasts were meaningful, loving and truly showed how much this couple has touched the lives of everyone in that ballroom.
Courtney, I hope Damon never stops whispering “I love you” into your ear and I hope you never stop making
