Real Wedding: A Memorable Memorial Day Weekend Wedding (Part 1)

30 06 2010
On a day where the weather could have gone one of two ways, two people came together to make one.  Katie and Patrick chose Memorial Day Weekend to get married and have a relaxed and beachy feel wedding held at The River Farm in Alexandria, Virginia.   This suited them well, as they are laid back, put together and fun loving people.   And most importantly they love each other, the pictures are proof. They had a vision for their day and rain or shine it was going to be exactly what they wanted.

In their tasteful and chic style they decided to claim their base camp at the Lorien Hotel in Alexandria, which provided great pictures and posh suites for partying!  It is in the presidential suite we had to make the biggest decision of the day, outside or inside. The wedding day weather report did not look good.  We checked it at least every half hour and finally Katie and Patrick decided to take the chance and have the ceremony outside.  They made a great decision. The weather turned out to be sunny and warm!  Here are a few sneak peak pictures taken by their photographer, Ralph Alswang.  Stay tuned for part 2, where I will give you the wedding day details. — Megan
