An Intimate Washington DC Military Elopement : Vintage with a Touch of Urban

Today’s amazing purple and white Washington DC military elopement comes to us from Marianne Blackham Photography. Both the bride and groom are in the Navy with the groom being a Navy doctor and the bride a Navy RN.

The couple decided they wanted to elope so that he could get married in his white uniform. The elopement took place in a charming alleyway in Washington DC with a brunch reception taking place later on at the Four Seasons. Enjoy their amazing wedding photo gallery below which also features photos by co-shooter Cynthia Bennett Photography.
