Oxon Hill Manor Wedding: Ana & Chris

Ana and and Chris’s Oxon Hill Manor Wedding is one I am so excited to share with you! Earlier this year I posted a bit about their love story and their unique DC engagement photos at Jack Rose, so if you haven’t already, make sure to check it out. They had their engagement session indoors at a cozy and chic bar in DC, a place they love to go! I love when couples pick a location that is sentimental and meaningful to them, it makes the photos that much more special! For their day at Oxon Hill Manor, every detail had so much thought and all the work was worth it!

We started the day actually at an AirBNB in Old Town Alexandria, where Ana and the bridesmaids got their hair and makeup done. I was able to find a great amount of light upstairs for Ana’s detail photos! We then headed to Oxon Hill where the groomsmen got ready in the groomsmen suite, and the girls headed to the bridal suite to continue getting ready. I was able to spend a lot of time with each of them because we had made such a relaxed timeline together, and I’m so glad we did. Ana and Chris shared their First Look in a private setting in the garden, as the violinist practiced and prepared for the ceremony. Their portraits right after was definitely my favorite part of their wedding day, we lucked out with just the amount of shade and sun for those perfect, creamy skin tones. Ana and Chris photograph so well together, and are naturals in front of the camera. The bridal party then joined us for photos and then we all got ready for the ceremony. What I actually love about Oxon Hill Manor’s ceremony setting is that there is a long aisle for a long entrance. This makes for so much opportunity for photos! I love that the backdrop of the ceremony is rather simplistic and minimal, that draws the eye to Ana and Chris. They went on to have the best reception and sparkler exit! OH, and they also had an afterparty at MGM!
