Introducing the new Mr. and Mrs. Gulbronson! Abbie & Nick tied the knot with a beautiful Catholic mass at St. Mary of Sorrows and then joined their closest friends and family for a classic soirée at the Chantilly National Golf & Country Club. Their wedding was the perfect example of classic and timeless wedding photography with romantic details and maroon & gold accents.
The guys stunned in black tuxes and bowties, but Nick chose a white tux jacket that really set him apart! When I mentioned how good of a choice it was, Abbie and Nick let me in on a secret (it was initially just tried on as a joke). I’ve only photographed a white tux for editorials, so it’s a treat to photograph stylish and chic attire on a wedding day!
Speaking of stylish and chic…Abbie’s veil was a MOMENT. She chose a gorgeous lace-adorned cathedral length veil and blusher to complement her princess ball gown and my jaw dropped when I saw her completed look! As soon as her veil was put in, everyone shared a moment and it started to sink in that she was really about to get married!
Abbie & Nick have known each other for close to a decade and have been dating abroad, long distance, and here in the DC area for the past 8 years! They met in high school in Stuttgart, Germany and genuinely enjoy just being together. They’re two of the most kind, warm, and lively people I’ve ever met–the kind of people that make you feel like you’ve known them for years even though you just met them. In their reception full of people, they made sure to spend time with every single person–even after the music ended and the band was packing up–so that no one felt disconnected or uncelebrated. Even if their relationship has a fraction of the love felt in that reception hall, then their marriage will last a lifetime.
