Springtime cherry blossom urban wedding at Toolbox DC | Alison + Barrett | Washington DC wedding photographers
Alison is the friend of a dear, dear friend... we've known each other a bit for years, but to get to truly know and work with her was a joy! Alison is part of that crazy-wonderful tribe of DC women who are kind, generous, talented, driven, and hardworking. So basically, exactly my kind of human. Her husband, Barrett, is real life leading-man material -- exactly the kind of human who Alison so entirely deserves! Alison + Barrett's wedding day in April at Toolbox was my first of 2018, and oh buddy did they set the standard for the rest of the year to look up to! They chose Toolbox -- one of my favorite DC venues, in one of my favorite DC neighborhoods -- for their celebration, and everything from getting ready at the Dupont Circle Hotel, to their first look at the Spanish Steps, to family formals down at the Dupont Circle fountain itself were perfect.
Toolbox always shines as a venue, but every. single. part. of this day was picture-perfect... from Alison's gorgeous penthouse hotel suite for getting ready with friends, to her Downton Abbey meets Great Gatsby styling and decor details. And of course, it was beautiful inside AND out, because Alison + Barrett draw really fabulous people into their lives. When all of the people in your life are so wonderful, it's no wonder you go without formal wedding party, because it's so hard to choose! If you need a role model for getting married, you could definitely do worse than Alison + Barrett!
