After years of photographing weddings in Washington, DC, the Love Life Images’ team has seen it all. From intimate brunch weddings to elaborate Indian weddings with 700 guests, each unique in its’ own way, but that’s what we love about DC! Today we’re sharing some real wedding inspiration on ways you can add a touch of DC to your wedding day.

Washington DC has such an iconic skyline with all the historic buildings and monuments, so adding a photo or sketch to your save-the-dates or wedding invitations is an eye-catching way to set the tone for your DC-themed wedding.

The Hay-Adams is another gorgeous location for amazing views of DC. It would be a great reception location to give your out-of-town guests a unique perspective of the White House and Washington Monument. DC wedding photographer

And to truly capture DC in your wedding, give yourself time to stop at one of the Monuments on the Mall for bridal party photos, or even have your intimate wedding ceremony at one of our favorite venues, the DC War Memorial.
