Heather and Ali’s New Year’s Eve wedding at the Alexandrian Hotel is one we won’t soon forget! Though it was a chilly winter evening, the warmth of this couple along with their family and friends made for such a memorable celebration. Their New Year’s eve theme shined with the beautiful holiday backdrops of Old Town Alexandria and the Alexandrian Hotel, with touches of black, white, gray, silver to highlight the festivities. Heather was stunning in her wedding gown adorned with the most intricate details!
Heather and Ali met at Penn State where they both attended undergraduate school. Ali was friends with Heather’s brother and it wasn’t long before people noticed what a great fit they were for each other and it also wasn’t long before they became the best of friends. Many of their guests were also Penn State alumni and it was such a blast to ring in the new year with this close knit group! There were so many memorable parts of this day, but one that stood out was prior to their first look, witnessing Heather read a letter that Ali had written to her and tearing up (along with Heather and everyone else in the room) at how Heather had written many of the same things in her letter to her soon to be husband. Their wedding vows were also one of the sweetest we have seen. The couple took turns speaking their promises to one another in a unique, heartfelt ceremonial tradition. And the day wouldn’t have been complete without some photographs of Heather and Ali’s fur baby, Rito.. who has got to be the most photogenic dog we’ve ever met! The entire wedding day was filled with laughter, happy tears, and of course lots and lots of dancing!
Heather and Ali, thank you for welcoming us to document your wedding day celebration and for also making us feel like family! You two are amazing and we wish you all the most blessed marriage and future together. Congratulations, again!
