Kurt and Rebecca got married in a romantic Cedar Knoll wedding last weekend. They met while they worked in South Florida. They were both new to the area and were eager to make connections. The first time they bonded was over the fact that they each moved abroad to teach English after college. Kurt and Rebecca both recently earned their masters degrees in public policy, Rebecca at Princeton & Kurt at UChicago. Kurt is goofy, can quote any TV show, movie, or song lyric after hearing it once, and is the life of the party. Rebecca is more of an introvert, loves to sing and play guitar, read books, and paint. I like to think they make each other more well-rounded people.
Kurt proposed in the garden of the national cathedral in D.C. over the summer of 2019 and surprised Rebecca with a family engagement party that night. His whole family came to D.C. from South Carolina and they had a wonderful time.
This romantic Cedar Knoll Wedding was one for the books. There was a sense of relief that the day had finally arrived. Rebecca’s father even joked during his speech that everyone was thrilled the wedding was finally here. Their original plans were spoiled early in the Coronavirus and my heart broke for them. The changed plans didn’t spoil the new wedding day. It was a beautiful, classy, romantic ceremony unique in the fact that their families were the ones to marry them. Everyone worked together so diligently to make this day a dream for Rebecca and Kurt.

SURPRISE: A Korean ceremony! How cool, right. The colors and traditions were so much fun. Rebecca and Kurt shared tea, tossed dates, and chestnuts and learned how many children they may have! What an experience for me! I had never seen this in person before, and I was thrilled to be a part of it. At times I found myself laughing along with the family and really feeling like a part of the event. It was so fun! And colorful!
After the Korean ceremony, they changed back into their wedding attire and we did all of their portraits. It was great timing, as the lighting was perfect!
