An Alexandrian Hotel Wedding in Alexandria, VA: Tom + Natasha

This Alexandrian Hotel wedding was the perfect way to start this year’s wedding season! Where do I even begin?! Tom and Natasha are such an amazing and  kind couple, and working with them was such a gift. I could not have asked for a better day to celebrate with them!


One of the best things about their wedding is that they allowed for plenty of photo time after the ceremony in their timeline. This never happens!! We’re normally rushed on weddings days, and things often fall behind schedule. Not for Tom and Natasha! After their ceremony at The Basilica of St Mary in Old Town Alexandria, we drove to a nearby location for their first portraits as husband and wife before heading to the Alexandrian Hotel for their reception. It truly couldn’t have been a more perfect day!


Their love story is just as great as their wedding day was!


Natasha says: “We met out with friends in Adams Morgan, DC! We had been together for three years when Tom proposed at sunset at one of our favorite parks near the Potomac River. Our favorite things to do together include spending time with friends and family, hiking, traveling, seeing movies, crossing new places off of our Old Town bucket list, and watching Formula One races. After the wedding, we’re planning a cross-country train trip from Washington D.C. to San Francisco, CA. We plan to spend 5 days there and visit various spots in town with day trips to Napa Valley and Monterrey. After that, we plan to start looking for our first home together!”


Tom and Natasha, it’s been such a joy working with you! I’ve been looking forward to your Alexandrian Hotel wedding ever since we met. I wish you all the best as you begin this new journey together!
