When I met with Florrie and Rick to discuss the details of their wedding, they repeatedly emphasized their vision of an intimate and elegant afternoon. Their wedding brought family and friends from east and west and from north and south to the beautiful and elegant Mandarin Oriental Hotel in Washington, D.C. From the intimate Garden rooms of the hotel to Florrie’s elegant dress, the ceremony, reception and dinner created a wedding equally beautiful, joyous, intimate and elegant.
I couldn’t help but feel the love that radiated between Rick and Florie. They are a fun, thoughtful, joyful, and, yes, elegant, couple.

Florrie and Rick had the Mandarin Oriental divide the Garden Room in a creative fashion to accommodate an intimate reception as well as dinner site:
I want to thank Florrie and Rick for allowing me to photograph their wedding and to share the day with them. I wish them all the happiness in their married life.
