We’re happy to share with you today the big wedding celebration of Brooke & Phill, who enjoyed a personalized ceremony at the historic New York Avenue Presbyterian Church in downtown Washington, DC. It was so nice seeing them and celebrating with them again after getting together for food & drink a couple of months prior at Pippin Hill Farm. It was so nice too working with our friend Jessica Brown (we adore the entire Simply Chic Events team) who pulled off this beautiful and fun wedding seemingly effortlessly (although we definitely know better). It was hard narrowing down our absolute favorites from the day there were so many great moments, but somehow we managed. 😉 Enjoy! And when you’re ready, check out Brooke and Phill’s complete gallery of images. The password is Brooke’s maiden name and is case-sensitive.

Dear b&p,

Some of our favorite moments from your day include:

When your parents got so excited for you they couldn’t wait to rush down the aisle after you to celebrate with you, leaving the wedding party at the altar in paused bemusement. Your nephews holding it together the best they could, and really performing admirably when it counted. That you called each other on the phone as you opened each others’ wedding gifts. Almost. Your bagpiper who led your guests across busy New York Avenue and H St., as if he were a mama duck followed by dozens of ducklings eager for cocktail hour. That way you paused and looked at each other as you recessed down the aisle. We don’t know what you were thinking, but we’re pretty sure it was something along the lines of, “We did it!”

Congratulations!

xoxo…
