Liz and Ben's Intimate DC Wedding

"They are a more perfect pair than even Bert and Ernie," said Ben's sister. Now that is a great analogy and I could not have said it better myself! She went on to explain that the perfect muppet pairing is one with that of an order muppet and a chaos muppet. Liz was so balanced and calm and Ben could not stop smiling for a second. I think I knew which was which before Ben's sister revealed it! Either way, the analogy warmed my heart and it fit them to a T! From the first email, I knew that Ben and Liz would be truly wonderful to work with. They were so collected and new exactly what they were looking for. They mentioned that they would be having an intimate wedding on the Spanish Steps in Washington DC and I got even more excited! What a wonderful experience to be able to shoot in a public park in the heart of one of DC's most beautiful areas! The Spanish Steps and the Hillyer Art Gallery were refined, yet heart warming, which so resembled everything I know of Liz and Ben. I am so happy to share this beautiful and intimate DC wedding!
