Juli and Brian’s wedding at the Loft at 600 F was just perfect! These two love DC, so they scheduled their wedding day around having time to travel around to some classic DC locations for their photos. (They had an awesome DC engagement session too!) We were able to get pictures at Union Station, Pennsylvania Avenue, and even traveling on Metro!

The game Monopoly has been a big part of their relationship, and I’m so glad that they incorporated it into their big day! Brian is actually a professional Monopoly player (ranked #3 in the entire world, y’all - basically a celebrity), and he first met Juli while traveling to Indianapolis for a tournament. They love playing together, so they made sure some Monopoly decor made it to the wedding. I love that we were able to get some detail photos with their favorite pieces - the thimble and Scottie dog!

I’m so in love with Juli’s dress - it was just perfect for twirling!

This level of color coordination is not easy to achieve. Even the drink?!

And here come the Metro pictures! This was at rush hour on a Friday, but thankfully we were able to navigate the crowds without any issues. And of course, Juli and Brian got lots of “Congratulations!” from complete strangers, which is always a fun part of photos in the city!

The big arches at Union Station were an amazing backdrop for wedding photos, and the whole bridal party was such a fun group!

Of course a game of Monopoly needed to happen before the ceremony!

With brick walls and sparkling string lights, the Loft at 600 F ceremony space is just stunning!

Juli and Brian laughed their way through the sand ceremony, which took a little bit longer than expected. Apparently sand pours slower than they thought! “I guess that’s why they call it an hour glass.”


This group of bikers asked if they could take a picture… Juli and Brian were happy to oblige!


And we made a quick stop at Starbucks on the way back to the venue…. because Starbucks is where Juli and Brian had their first date!

Juli and Brian finished their beautiful night with a fun sparkler exit!
