Merrilee & Giancarlo's LDS Temple Wedding in Washington DC

Merrilee and Giancarlo was married in June at the LDS Temple in Washington DC.  After the ceremony we traveled back to Chambersburg PA for a few photos at a private residence and then the reception at Norlo Park.

This was my first LDS Temple wedding, and, like my last post, things worked out differently than most of the weddings I shoot.  Mormon weddings at the Temple cannot be photographed.  So when I arrived I was waiting for the bride and groom to exit the Temple so we could start the formal photos of the family, bridal party, and of course, the couple.  That is why you will not see images of the dress, shoes, the bride getting ready, etc.  Merrilee and Giancarlo did take a few minutes at the reception for a ring exchange so their guests could be part of their wedding vows, so you will see that in the gallery.

It was a great day, and a great experience, though, and I hope to shoot many more LDS weddings at the Temple.  The grounds are beautiful!
