There’s nothing like having a great wedding theme, and what’s not to love about a science themed wedding? Perhaps surprisingly, no jokes were made about hormones, but there were other great thematic surprises. The place cards were names of famous scientists, for example, and the flowers were in beakers and erlenmeyer flasks. One of my favorite details was the candy molecular formulas on top of the cupcakes – a delicious perfect touch.
And, of course, a wedding is made by the people in it, and these attendees knew how to have a great time. The reception was one of the liveliest I’ve had the pleasure of photographing!
Besides the theme, I also loved the location at Top of the Town in Arlington, VA. It’s described as having one of the best views in the DMV / DC area, and after photographing Jeff and Emily’s wedding, I’d have to agree. The scenery both within and without was stunning. It was an absolutely perfect location for a wedding, and Jeff and Emily fit right in with the elegant interior.
To Jeff and Emily, congratulations! I’m so happy for the both of you, and it was so much fun to photograph your ceremony and reception. Thank you for sharing the experience with me and for letting me capture your special day. After witnessing the two of you together, I don’t think anyone would reduce love to simply a chemical reaction!
