A Willard Inter Continental Hotel Wedding | Washington DC

  • Philip + Cheryl

There is always something going on in DC! Whether it’s a garden tour, marathon or protest, something is happening and people are always EVERYWHERE! It’s a fun city that’s full of excitement and while Michael and I aren’t fans of DC traffic, it was fun to shoot at such a gorgeous, historic location. The Willard is just amazing, and we were so thankful that everything took place in one location!! That made our job so much easier!! Philip and Cheryl actually found this location by accident! They had toured another local hotel and weren’t 100% in love with it and so they left a little defeated and just happened to walk through the Willard on accident! It was perfect! Philip said they knew instantly that this is where they wanted to get married and so Saturday, they did just that! They were married in a gorgeous ballroom full of cherry blossoms and candlelight.

However, we were quickly disappointed when we drove past and saw the “sold” sign in the front yard. So we kept driving and found a new subdivision with a model home that we absolutely LOVED! We signed a contract 5 days later and

The Workshop Experience | Adelaide, Australia

  • We're Australia Bound!

probably one of our top 5 biggest business announcements to date. It’s one of those decisions that we talked about and after coming to the conclusion that we wanted to go for it, “YOLO!” would have been an appropriate way to end the conversation! It’s true, you only live once and so why not give your dreams a shot!? Sure, it’s scary and it’s a risk but this is also one of the most exciting adventures we’ve ever attempted in our business and we’re ready for a challenge!! Michael has always had a lifelong dream of visiting this amazing country and I have always wanted to teach overseas
