I had the pleasure of photographing a wedding last month, at the Shrine of the Sacred Heart in DC that had beautiful, old world inspired architecture. (I’m still not sure if it’s more Byzantine or Romanesque. Architect’s comments are most welcome. Nevertheless, you walk in and you feel like you could be in just about any church in Rome.) It’s rare to see that around here these days, those thick walls and round arches. I find it very romantic. It’s both grand and gentle at the same time.
Not unlike the very sweet Franciscan couple, Manuel and Yenis, who prayerfully made their wedding vows there. After the Nuptial Mass, we went to the Franciscan Monastery for some photos on a hot, but beautiful afternoon.
Here are some of my favorites. Don’t forget to see the video slideshow at the end.
Best of blessings to the happy couple!
