July 4th weekend started off in style with Kellie and Zach’s wedding finally arriving. I met Kellie at a bridal show in January of last year, and have been patiently waiting for her wedding at Trump National Golf Course. The waterfall at Trump National creates a dreamscape for any wedding (it’s also one of my favorite locations to shoot). With weather always being an issue in the DC area, we lucked out by avoiding both scorching heat and any mid-summer showers.
Fun fact: Kellie and a number of her bridesmaids are all Redskins cheerleaders.
Kellie and her bridesmaids spent the morning getting ready in the Trump townhouse while Zach and his groomsmen were out and about posing with their superhero alter-ego shirts. Zach, naturally, is on Team Superman. Once all the girls were ready in their beautiful blue gowns, they helped Kellie into her effortlessly stunning gown, sapphire blue Badgley Mischka heels, and not one but two NFL garters. Kellie surprised Zach with a Buffalo Bills garter as well as a Washington Redskins garter to show off her love of their favorite teams.
Fun fact: The gal who caught the bouquet became newly single the day before the wedding, proving this was a day filled with good vibes.
After an emotional and personal ceremony that left no eyes dry, the couple took to their reception with even more style. For their first dance, the newlyweds left it all on the dance floor. But they weren’t the only ones who brought the moves for their special day; Kellie and her father shared a fun, choreographed dance that made the entire room pause and gaze with envy and delight.
Kellie and Zach’s wedding was uniquely elegant—two things that don’t necessarily always go together. They make a fantastic couple and their day was one of the most special ones to date.
