When Nancy asked me to photograph her wedding I felt a little sick to my stomach and slightly confused. I worked with Nancy and she is a brilliant art director. "She can't actually be asking me to shoot her wedding. She's so creative. She's just being nice." I really thought I would not meet her expectations. Frankly, I'm still a bit in shock.

A couple years ago, when Nancy was living in Austin, she "swiped right" on Jesse's Tinder photo and the rest is history. Texas holds a very special place in their hearts, so when they moved back to the DC area for Jesse's job, Virtue Feed & Grain in Alexandria, VA provided that cool, rustic ambiance for their Austin inspired celebration. 

Loads of family and friends gathered on the second floor and filled the overstuffed couches and barstools to see Nancy walk down the isle, and Jesse seemed just as taken with her as he was the week before at their family wedding. The bridesmaids wore beautiful flowered dresses of their choice and the guys looked smart in their suspenders.
