Everything was big on Debbie and Leland’s wedding day. We started with really big heat and humidity. It was so unbearable that cut our outdoor portrait time short. There’s no fainting in weddings allowed, so we played it safe and headed inside! Then we had big rains. Remember those crazy storms and tornado warnings when the remnants of Tropical Storm Bill came through? Yeah, that was interesting to watch from the top floor of the Key Bridge Marriott when you have nearly 360-degree views of the city around you! It was equally scary and cool to me!
But there were also big hearts as family watched Debbie and Leland say their vows, big laughs as the wedding party roasted the bride and groom in speeches, and big notes as the band belted out songs that energized guests on the dance floor all night long. As a musician himself, Leland even stepped behind the drums for a few songs at the end of the night too. Their day was the epitome of what a celebration should be!
I hope that they could not have imagined a more perfect wedding day celebration for themselves, so enjoy highlights from Debbie and Leland’s Key Bridge Marriott wedding in Arlington, VA!
Check out those storm clouds rolling in!
Special thanks the team that helped make the day great!
