Jenny and Nate are medical residents who also somehow managed to plan an absolutely lovely spring wedding at the Decatur House in Washington D.C.

I LOVED taking couples portraits in the historic portion of the house, which is right off Lafayette Square next to the White House. The huge, shuttered windows made the place feel more like a Parisian venue than a D.C. one.

A couple touches made this wedding feel super personal. Jenny held up a mask made of a picture of their puppy, Murphy for her first look: scroll down to see Nate’s reaction. They also read each other vows they wrote themselves (yes, there were tears).
