Shawnie and Kenneth were married April 21 at the gorgeous St. Regis in Washington, DC. As always, it was wonderful to work with Alicia Bell and her team!
According to staff, for over 30 years, a family of ducks has been returning to the Astor terrace to make a nest and hatch eggs there. They're only there for a few weeks during the start of spring, but they did happen to be there for Shawnie and Kenneth's wedding. We're pretty sure those ducks were a sign of good luck!
Kenneth getting ready... looking good, sir!
We loved this shot of Shawnie. We can only imagine what was going through her head at that moment!
You just can't have a swanky Washington wedding without grabbing a few shots in front of the Capitol. Love this one!
Brian said working with Shawnie and Kenneth was a breeze and that he loved how excited they were to throw a huge party for their friends from all around the world.
This dance floor wouldn't stay empty for long...
The couple decided to forgo a traditional bridal party introduction and instead were introduced directly into their first dance, Michael Bublé's "Everything."
Their guests oohed and awwed to their choreographed routine.
After one final twirl and a round of applause, everyone was invited to join them on the dance floor.
For the first part of the reception, guests enjoyed a good mix of oldies and wedding classics.
Toward the second half of the evening, bride, groom and their guests boogied down to high energy and electro-pop like Avicii, Bingo Players, and Calvin Harris. Brian was impressed by the guests' enthusiasm and sweet dance moves!
Even the evening's youngest attendees got down!
Shawnie and Kenneth, thank you so much for letting us be a part of your special day and we wish you both all the best. We'd love to spin your wedding a thousand times over again if we could!
