Classic Blush and Gold Washington DC Wedding: Getting Ready at the Willard InterContinental Hotel

I'm having the best time going through photos from some of our 2015 weddings, and it's time to start sharing them with you! First up is Erika and Erich's beautiful blush and gold wedding, which was classic Washington from start to finish.

I don't always feature a getting ready post, but Jennifer Cody's pre-wedding photos are too good not to share and I think they tell a beautiful story. There's so much love here: The guys being goofy together, the joy and anticipation on Erich's face, Erika's mom and friends surrounding her with smiles... I mean, that's what it's really all about, right? And the gorgeous backdrop of the Willard Hotel is perfection.

I hope you enjoy these as much as I did. I'll be sharing Erika and Erich's stunning ceremony and reception soon!
