Bride of the Month: Maggie Gentile

Earlier this month we featured our bride Maggie and her husband Brad’s DC love story. The pair decided to get married here, since it served as a central meeting point for their families. They wanted a wedding that took advantage of all that the district had to offer, from getting married in a traditional catholic ceremony, taking gorgeous portraits on Capitol Hill, to celebrating on the fabulous rooftop of 101 Constitution. As you can see, their wedding was filled family, friends, and most importantly… love.

Maggie wore a Monique Lhuillier corset and skirt accented by lace mantilla veil.
