This warm fall wedding with all the pretty blush hues was photographed by Hannah Bjorndal at The Excelsior on Friday, October 4, 2019. Hannah is a Washington, D.C. wedding photographer available for weddings in DC, Virginia, Maryland, nationally and internationally. She has traveled all over the world for weddings and engagements, including Portland, Vancouver, Jamaica, USVI, Paris, Texas, Florida and more.
Hillary & Robbie made me feel like a part of their family from the very first time that I met them for their engagement session. If you’ve been following HBP for a while, you may remember that time when I panicked, jumped out of an Uber and flew through Georgetown on a Bird scooter. Yep, that was for this sweet couple’s engagement session! I could not get over how gracious they were that day, and they continued to make me feel loved all throughout their wedding planning process! Their wedding day was a day I’d been looking forward to FOREVER!
Hillary has timelessly classic style that totally matches her classy personality. Her style on her wedding day was the perfect reflection of who she is: a timeless, classic and beautiful woman inside and out! Together, these two are the sweetest. The way Robbie looked at Hillary during their first look made me tear up! As soon as they were together, they both were so much more at ease. That is the way it should be!
Some of my favorite parts of Hillary & Robbie’s wedding day included the stunning floral design by Petals with Style, the exquisite selection of details (including Staccato Stationery‘s specially-labeled invitation suite just for me!), the final design for the reception room (seriously STUNNING!), and the toasts made by Hillary’s brother, maids of honor, and Robbie’s brother. It meant the world to me that these two valued their photos so highly – we went all around the city of Lancaster shooting at different pretty places. They asked for ample time for photos so that they didn’t miss a single photo request, too!
Here are some of my favorite shots from the day!
