Kristen and Harry’s decision to have a Washington DC elopement comes from the beginning of their relationship. Kristen and Harry’s love story began in the beautiful city of Paris. They met while studying abroad, as Harry came all the way from London and Kristen from Georgia. It was fate that brought them together through a mutual friend who planned a fun pub night. Their first date was a memorable one. After meeting at an Irish pub, they discovered their shared love for museums with stunning architecture, so they decided to visit the Musee de Jacquemart Andre. It was the perfect way to start their journey together. But the evening didn’t end there. Harry wanted to make it special, so he took Kristen to the top of the iconic Arc de Triomphe. Unfortunately, the weather took an unexpected turn as freezing rain started pouring down. However, instead of dampening their spirits, it turned into a hilarious moment. Kristen couldn’t stop laughing when she noticed fluff from Harry’s sweater sticking to his face. It was a genuine, belly-aching laugh that they both shared. They sought shelter from the rain at a cozy wine bar, where they talked for hours about their lives, dreams, and families. It felt like a rom-com movie, and it was in that moment that Kristen knew she had strong feelings for Harry.
Since that night, Kristen and Harry have been inseparable. They strongly believe that destiny brought them together. They have talked every day, and their bond continues to grow. As they started planning their wedding, they both agreed on one thing – they wanted it to be special and timeless. That’s why they chose the beautiful Jefferson Hotel for their Washington DC elopement. The hotel’s historic ambiance perfectly reflected their love and the history they were creating together.
The day of their wedding was filled with many emotions. During their First Look in the hotel lobby, their love for each other was so evident it caught the attention of passersby.
They then had chosen the perfect location for their portraits around DC. The city’s stunning architecture and landmarks provided a picturesque backdrop for both playful and posed moments. One of the highlights was capturing them playing a game of mini tag by the reflecting pool.
Their love story continues to unfold, and the photos from this day serve as a reminder of their incredible journey together. Kristen and Harry are proof that true love exists and that when you find it, even in the middle of a crazy city like Paris, you hold onto it tightly.
