Nadia + Mark | Western
September 5th, 2015 washington, dc. Nadia + Mark celebrated their marriage over two days in the heart of Washington, DC and invited me to film both their Mehndi party and western ceremony. Their western marriage ceremony was held in the courtyard of the Ronald Reagan Building/International Trade Center on a perfect Sunday afternoon at the end of summer. The couple wanted to highlight the city in their wedding, and the location couldn’t have been more perfect to do just that; the courtyard couldn’t feel more like the best parts of DC. The reception was held inside the trade center and was the perfect expression of their personalities, from the elegance of the venue and guests to the fun of their ballroom dance to Metallica. The couple partied long into the night before quietly slipping away in a Pedicab, the perfect end to a weekend of love and celebration. shot+edited by doug stanford and steve berkenkemper.
