wow wow wow am I excited for today!!! It is finally the day I get to share one of my favorite modern DC weddings to date with you!

The wedding that is the very essence of GOALS

If this wedding was a high school superlative it would be “The Shockley’s: most likely to set the record for the amount of trends set in a single day” 

This was the showstopper of wedding days with a wide array of personal details,  modern decor, a rooftop view and so much more! (LOL not to sound too dr seuss on you! 😂)

As I scroll through their gallery it amazes me how bright and joyful this day remains even though it took place during a crazy monsoon week of rain! AND YOU WOULD NEVER BE ABLE TO TELL.

When people bring up the royal wedding of 2018 I immediately think back to this day *all sappiness aside* it was the first wedding I’ve been to where I couldn’t stop thinking “how is this day even real!?” 

Courtney you were the most beautiful bride and made a photographers dream come true with your flawless day. What a joy it is to work alongside couples like you and Kenny! Cheers to a long and happy marriage!!! XO
