I’d never been to The Whittemore House before Steve and Laura’s wedding. Located at Dupont Circle in Washington, DC, it’s actually quite unassuming on the outside. The interior, however, has that elegant historic feeling without being antiquated. Besides the pleasure of photographing their wedding, thanks to Steve and Laura, I also got a brief history lesson about the house!
It’s one of DC’s most historic mansions, and it was built in the late 1800s for an opera singer named Sarah Adams – surprise – Whittemore. Most importantly, however, it makes for a beautiful wedding.
And, on top of the classic and vintage feeling location, the entire ensembles of the wedding crew were stunning. I mean, it’s one thing for your accessories to match your shoes, but Steve and Laura’s rings even matched the house.
Pictured above is a well-timed, behind the scenes moment amongst groom and groomsmen. Below is Steve, dressed and practically glowing with excitement. There’s no way there’s cold feet in those stylish shoes.
Then there’s Nicole in her elegant dress – a perfect fit for the setting. She even broke the mold and let her bridesmaids wear these dresses. The red is a perfect contrast, but has anyone told her that bridesmaids aren’t supposed to be stylish?!
…Hm. Maybe I’m the one that’s antiquated.

Below is the lovely wedding party, lit up in full celebration mode.
Hmm, this cake topper looks familiar – oh yeah. Scroll up a few pictures.
One of the downsides of being a photographer at a wedding is that you don’t get to join in the revelry, but with this crowd, the second-hand revelry was almost as good.
To Steve and Laura, congratulations, and thank you for the honor of photographing your wedding! I can tell that you two have as much great taste in venues and clothing as you do in people. Cheers to a happy future!
