Susannah and Zach // Hendry House Wedding, Arlington, VA // VA Wedding Coordinator

Photo by Olivia Jacob

Susannah and Zach got married this past May on a gorgeous Sunday. They originally had hired me to do Month-of Coordination only, but Susannah’s family suffered an unfortunate tragedy prior to her wedding, so they hired me to jump in and take on some of the extra tasks to lighten their load. It was my absolute pleasure and it was wonderful to get to see such joy on their wedding day after tough times.

Susannah and Zach had their ceremony outdoors under a DIY chuppah (which they made themselves – and nailed). After the beautiful ceremony, guests had cocktails outdoors on the Hendry House patio and then moved to the tented reception for dinner and dancing! Some details of their reception I loved included their guest book – they had guests write on blank library cards and file them away in card catalog drawers. They also got a non-traditional wedding cake from Alexandria Pastry Shop which was just gorgeous and perfect for the season. And I have to mention Susannah’s dress which was a stunning modern number. I was obsessed with it – had I found it when I’d been dress shopping for my own wedding I probably would have worn it myself! She was so beautiful.

Susannah is a twin, and Zach has two twin brothers! So don’t worry if you’re seeing double in some of these excellent photos from Olivia Jacob. Enjoy – and congrats again, Susannah and Zach!
