A few weeks ago we met up with friend, and our talented wedding photographer, Kate Headley, to snap our engagement photos. I wanted to share a few photos of the setting because in my opinion it’s truly one of the most beautiful but surprisingly unknown places in DC.
We decided on the gardens at Dumbarton Oaks for the same reason I decided on our wedding venue–stunning architecture and a sense of history. It was actually The Orangery that sold me. It’s breathtakingly beautiful in person (fourth and fifth photos) and Kate totally caught me obsessing over those lanterns. Typical, right?
As camera shy as I am (no future in fashion blogging here!) it was so fun to spend an afternoon wandering the gardens with Garrett and have Kate as our very own paparazzi. I know we’ll cherish the photos for years to come.
DC friends and out-of-towners, definitely put Dumbarton Oaks on your must-visit list. Next time we’re going back with a picnic packed!
