Laura and Andrew Hymel’s Arlington Renaissance Hotel Wedding was incredible! Everything about this wedding had a little bit of Laura and Andrew, from the swanky getting ready suite, to the art installations throughout the hotel, Laura’s cobalt blue shoes, Andrew’s matching thin tie!
Laura and Andrew chose to do a first look before the ceremony on the deck of the Arlington Renaissance Hotel. It was a sweet moment for both of them, giving them a chance to really embrace that they are becoming husband and wife that day!… I am always blown away at how beautiful a first look is. Maybe it’s because the groom feels at ease and can really express all his emotions. For Andrew and Laura’s first look they both were dancing in their shoes minutes before and truly embraced so tight the minute they saw one another! It was adorable! Andrew may have shed a few tears, who wouldn’t after seeing Laura!
These was not a dull moment the entire day with their vivacious family and friends! I could have stayed all night dancing and watching these two entertain with Stephen Jefferson their DJ! Their dance floor was so hilarious and rockin, I decided to try some funky long exposure dancing photos!
Andrew and Laura are not just in love but they are truly best friends and you can definitely see that in the way they both play and have fun together. Want to see more of Laura & Andrew?! Check out their Washington DC Monument Engagement Photo-video Fusion!
