Christine & Rishi | Capitol Hill Wedding

Friends and family, from across the miles, gathered for their wedding day. The church was packed to the brim but the day was still very sweet and intimate. It was Christine and Rishi’s wedding day and it seemed all of Capitol Hill was celebrating with them. Their utmost desire and prayer was that God would be honored through their wedding day and that was absolutely the case. These two planned a wedding completely to rejoice with their friends and family and give Glory to God. It really was beautiful. Our day started a little differently than usual, as Christine and Rishi chose to start with us right at the time for first look. Because of this, I had the unique opportunity of walking around the corner and seeing Christine for the first time that day, as a bride, completely dressed. It was such an exciting moment honestly, and I think I might have even squealed, she looked so beautiful! Christine and Rishi got married in their church, Capitol Hill Baptist Church in Washington, DC and it was one of the most beautiful December days.DC Wedding Photographer Capitol Hill Baptist Church Wedding Maggianos CHBC Washington Winter Wedding_0001DC Wedding Photographer Capitol Hill Baptist Church Wedding Maggianos CHBC Washington Winter Wedding_0002 DC Wedding Photographer Capitol Hill Baptist Church Wedding Maggianos CHBC Washington Winter Wedding_0003 DC Wedding Photographer Capitol Hill Baptist Church Wedding Maggianos CHBC Washington Winter Wedding_0004 DC Wedding Photographer Capitol Hill Baptist Church Wedding Maggianos CHBC Washington Winter Wedding_0005 DC Wedding Photographer Capitol Hill Baptist Church Wedding Maggianos CHBC Washington Winter Wedding_0006 DC Wedding Photographer Capitol Hill Baptist Church Wedding Maggianos CHBC Washington Winter Wedding_0008

To honor Rishi’s Indian heritage, Christine had traditional Mehndi on her hands. I love that Rishi’s initials, as is tradition, are incorporated into the design.

A friend, who works with a florist in South Carolina, made all the flower arrangements and they were just so lovely!

After the wedding, she shared that she could have walked down that aisle again and again! She wasn’t a bit nervous but instead loved the feeling of turning the corner and seeing that the people she and Rishi love so dearly filled the room! She clung to her dad’s arm and looked around while also looking toward her groom, waiting at the end. I just love that the very thing she sort of dreaded became one of her most special memories of the day.DC Wedding Photographer Capitol Hill Baptist Church Wedding Maggianos CHBC Washington Winter Wedding_0028 DC Wedding Photographer Capitol Hill Baptist Church Wedding Maggianos CHBC Washington Winter Wedding_0027 DC Wedding Photographer Capitol Hill Baptist Church Wedding Maggianos CHBC Washington Winter Wedding_0029 DC Wedding Photographer Capitol Hill Baptist Church Wedding Maggianos CHBC Washington Winter Wedding_0030 DC Wedding Photographer Capitol Hill Baptist Church Wedding Maggianos CHBC Washington Winter Wedding_0031 DC Wedding Photographer Capitol Hill Baptist Church Wedding Maggianos CHBC Washington Winter Wedding_0032 DC Wedding Photographer Capitol Hill Baptist Church Wedding Maggianos CHBC Washington Winter Wedding_0033 DC Wedding Photographer Capitol Hill Baptist Church Wedding Maggianos CHBC Washington Winter Wedding_0034

Their reception almost felt like more of a large family gathering and Maggiano’s Little Italy in DC was the perfect venue for that.DC Wedding Photographer Capitol Hill Baptist Church Wedding Maggianos CHBC Washington Winter Wedding_0026 DC Wedding Photographer Capitol Hill Baptist Church Wedding Maggianos CHBC Washington Winter Wedding_0035 DC Wedding Photographer Capitol Hill Baptist Church Wedding Maggianos CHBC Washington Winter Wedding_0038 DC Wedding Photographer Capitol Hill Baptist Church Wedding Maggianos CHBC Washington Winter Wedding_0048

Some of the most heart felt and beautiful toasts to the bride and groom we have ever heard.DC Wedding Photographer Capitol Hill Baptist Church Wedding Maggianos CHBC Washington Winter Wedding_0040 DC Wedding Photographer Capitol Hill Baptist Church Wedding Maggianos CHBC Washington Winter Wedding_0039 DC Wedding Photographer Capitol Hill Baptist Church Wedding Maggianos CHBC Washington Winter Wedding_0042 DC Wedding Photographer Capitol Hill Baptist Church Wedding Maggianos CHBC Washington Winter Wedding_0041 DC Wedding Photographer Capitol Hill Baptist Church Wedding Maggianos CHBC Washington Winter Wedding_0043 DC Wedding Photographer Capitol Hill Baptist Church Wedding Maggianos CHBC Washington Winter Wedding_0044 DC Wedding Photographer Capitol Hill Baptist Church Wedding Maggianos CHBC Washington Winter Wedding_0045 DC Wedding Photographer Capitol Hill Baptist Church Wedding Maggianos CHBC Washington Winter Wedding_0047 DC Wedding Photographer Capitol Hill Baptist Church Wedding Maggianos CHBC Washington Winter Wedding_0046DC Wedding Photographer Capitol Hill Baptist Church Wedding Maggianos CHBC Washington Winter Wedding_0036 DC Wedding Photographer Capitol Hill Baptist Church Wedding Maggianos CHBC Washington Winter Wedding_0037 DC Wedding Photographer Capitol Hill Baptist Church Wedding Maggianos CHBC Washington Winter Wedding_0049
