Dancin' in the District - Real Wedding of M + J

Dancin’ in the District – Real Wedding of M + J

June 17, 2015

Maria and Joseph’s real wedding, which took place at the Fairmont Hotel, was a celebration of two lovebirds. The couple met at the University of Pennsylvania, where Maria was auditing an International Relations course that Joe happened to be the TA of. Coincidentally, a mutual friend was also auditing the course and introduced them, thus resulting in the two meeting and hitting it off!

A few of the couple’s favorite things from the wedding were coming back to DC for their wedding as well as their incredible band, which had their family and friends dancing all night long. Maria explains, “We also had some really touching speeches from my sister and Joe’s best man that we’ll never forget. Lastly, we loved sneaking out between family photos and the ceremony to get some photos of just the two of us in Old Town — that was hands down the best decision we made!”
The couple’s wedding had shades of purple and ivory and was filled with all sorts of different flowers that were perfect for their summertime nuptial. Pictures of the beautiful wedding are featured below for you to enjoy!
