The Bristow Manor Wedding of Justine & Matt

This past weekend, we photographed the beautiful wedding of Justine and Matt. They are both enlisted dentists in the Navy, and will be heading off soon to serve in Japan. It was an honor to photograph their wedding, and especially fitting for a Memorial Day weekend military wedding when we recognize the service of our troops. We started out the wedding day at The Willard Intercontinental Washington DC. It was a perfect location to start with getting ready photos in the rooms and portraits in the beautiful lobby and foyer. The couple looked amazing and we had a wonderful time working with them. Justine’s beautiful dress was a perfect match to Matt’s military evening dress suit adored with military regalia. We had the opportunity to do wedding photos at the Lincoln Memorial, and while being packed full of visitors for Memorial Day weekend, the crowd spread out forming a circle around Justine and Matt when we asked them to go up on the steps for some photos. The crowd formed around them and nearly everyone was snapping photos of the couple, and then a huge cheer erupted for them as they kissed on the steps of the Lincoln Memorial. It was a wonderful scene to observe. Next, we traveled on to Bristow Manor Golf Club near Manassas for the wedding ceremony and reception. Bristow Manor is a gorgeous venue and incredible location for wedding photos. The bride arrived to the ceremony on horse-drawn carriage from Harmon’s Carriages. During the ceremony, the couple did a “Love Letter & Wine Box Ceremony” tradition in which they placed private love letters into a box with a bottle of wine and sealed the box with a hammer. The box is to be opened on their 1st anniversary, wine shared, and love letters read. At the end of the ceremony, four Navy servicemen were there to do The Arch of the Swords Ceremony where the couple was asked to kiss before being able to pass underneath the swords. By tradition, the last serviceman gives the bride a tap on the backside with the sword and a “Welcome to the Navy” greeting. The couple left by horse-drawn carriage and we went to a few locations in the fields and around the Manor for some photographs. The reception was a great celebration of the couple, and perfectly capped off a fabulous wedding day. We send them best wishes for their future together.
