I really loved the classic and elegant feel of Katie and Travis’ DC wedding at the Willard Hotel. The old world feel of the Willard Hotel paired with Travis’ Army dress uniform provided the perfect mix for this amazing couple who first met while both serving in the military. And as Elena, Katie’s maid of honor, mentioned as soon as Katie saw Travis, she knew she wanted to know him more. On their first date she told Elena, “He poured me wine, and I liked it!” You see, Katie has always been a strong and independent woman. The kind of person who after the devastation of 9/11, went straight to the recruiters office and signed up for the Army. So for her to enjoy a man taking care of her, she knew that he was the one. The day started off getting ready at the Willard Hotel and ended dancing the night, breaking it down to the 8 piece band, Onyx. And I mean, they really danced the night away!
