Cynthia + Craig
Mount Pleasant Shrine of the Sacred Heart and Silver Spring Hilton Hotel Wedding

October 22nd, 2016

On a brisk fall day in late-October, this amazing couple became husband and wife. Their Indian-inspired celebration was infused with tradition, personal touches, and the love of family.

A classic Catholic Ceremony was held at the Shrine of the Sacred Heart in the Mount Pleasant neighborhood in Washington, DC. This is the church where Cynthia and Craig first met each other. During the ceremony, they performed the Indian tradition of blessing the Tali-maala necklace and Manthrakodi. The Tali-maala necklace is the foremost symbol of the Covenant of Marriage in India and the Manthrakodi blessing symbolizes the love and protection that the groom promises to give his bride.

A cocktail hour at the Hilton DoubleTree in Silver Spring, Maryland followed the reception. Guests spent time catching up with friends and family. Aside from being completely compatible with each other and being clearly, dearly in love, these two also have a heart for serving others. Everyone in attendance was thrilled for this couple’s marriage. For their first dance, they placed Ben Folds “The Luckiest” and the reception hall was bursting with emotion. These two lovebirds are so passionate about each other!

Thank you two so much for choosing me to be your wedding photographer. It was an absolute honor to photograph your love story. 🙂          Cynthia-Crait-Sacred-Heart-Double-Tree-DC-Wedding00001 Cynthia-Crait-Sacred-Heart-Double-Tree-DC-Wedding00002 Cynthia-Crait-Sacred-Heart-Double-Tree-DC-Wedding00003 Cynthia-Crait-Sacred-Heart-Double-Tree-DC-Wedding00004 Cynthia-Crait-Sacred-Heart-Double-Tree-DC-Wedding00005 Cynthia-Crait-Sacred-Heart-Double-Tree-DC-Wedding00006 Cynthia-Crait-Sacred-Heart-Double-Tree-DC-Wedding00007 Cynthia-Crait-Sacred-Heart-Double-Tree-DC-Wedding00008 Cynthia-Crait-Sacred-Heart-Double-Tree-DC-Wedding00009 Cynthia-Crait-Sacred-Heart-Double-Tree-DC-Wedding00010 Cynthia-Crait-Sacred-Heart-Double-Tree-DC-Wedding00011 Cynthia-Crait-Sacred-Heart-Double-Tree-DC-Wedding00012 Cynthia-Crait-Sacred-Heart-Double-Tree-DC-Wedding00013 Cynthia-Crait-Sacred-Heart-Double-Tree-DC-Wedding00014 Cynthia-Crait-Sacred-Heart-Double-Tree-DC-Wedding00015 Cynthia-Crait-Sacred-Heart-Double-Tree-DC-Wedding00016 Cynthia-Crait-Sacred-Heart-Double-Tree-DC-Wedding00017 Cynthia-Crait-Sacred-Heart-Double-Tree-DC-Wedding00018 Cynthia-Crait-Sacred-Heart-Double-Tree-DC-Wedding00019 Cynthia-Crait-Sacred-Heart-Double-Tree-DC-Wedding00020 Cynthia-Crait-Sacred-Heart-Double-Tree-DC-Wedding00021 Cynthia-Crait-Sacred-Heart-Double-Tree-DC-Wedding00022 Cynthia-Crait-Sacred-Heart-Double-Tree-DC-Wedding00023 Cynthia-Crait-Sacred-Heart-Double-Tree-DC-Wedding00024 Cynthia-Crait-Sacred-Heart-Double-Tree-DC-Wedding00025 Cynthia-Crait-Sacred-Heart-Double-Tree-DC-Wedding00026 Cynthia-Crait-Sacred-Heart-Double-Tree-DC-Wedding00027 Cynthia-Crait-Sacred-Heart-Double-Tree-DC-Wedding00028 Cynthia-Crait-Sacred-Heart-Double-Tree-DC-Wedding00029 Cynthia-Crait-Sacred-Heart-Double-Tree-DC-Wedding00030 Cynthia-Crait-Sacred-Heart-Double-Tree-DC-Wedding00031 Cynthia-Crait-Sacred-Heart-Double-Tree-DC-Wedding00032 Cynthia-Crait-Sacred-Heart-Double-Tree-DC-Wedding00033 Cynthia-Crait-Sacred-Heart-Double-Tree-DC-Wedding00034 Cynthia-Crait-Sacred-Heart-Double-Tree-DC-Wedding00035 Cynthia-Crait-Sacred-Heart-Double-Tree-DC-Wedding00036 Cynthia-Crait-Sacred-Heart-Double-Tree-DC-Wedding00037 Cynthia-Crait-Sacred-Heart-Double-Tree-DC-Wedding00038 Cynthia-Crait-Sacred-Heart-Double-Tree-DC-Wedding00039 Cynthia-Crait-Sacred-Heart-Double-Tree-DC-Wedding00040 Cynthia-Crait-Sacred-Heart-Double-Tree-DC-Wedding00041 Cynthia-Crait-Sacred-Heart-Double-Tree-DC-Wedding00042 Cynthia-Crait-Sacred-Heart-Double-Tree-DC-Wedding00043 Cynthia-Crait-Sacred-Heart-Double-Tree-DC-Wedding00044 Cynthia-Crait-Sacred-Heart-Double-Tree-DC-Wedding00045 Cynthia-Crait-Sacred-Heart-Double-Tree-DC-Wedding00046 Cynthia-Crait-Sacred-Heart-Double-Tree-DC-Wedding00047 Cynthia-Crait-Sacred-Heart-Double-Tree-DC-Wedding00048 Cynthia-Crait-Sacred-Heart-Double-Tree-DC-Wedding00049 Cynthia-Crait-Sacred-Heart-Double-Tree-DC-Wedding00050 Cynthia-Crait-Sacred-Heart-Double-Tree-DC-Wedding00051 Cynthia-Crait-Sacred-Heart-Double-Tree-DC-Wedding00052 Cynthia-Crait-Sacred-Heart-Double-Tree-DC-Wedding00053 Cynthia-Crait-Sacred-Heart-Double-Tree-DC-Wedding00054 Cynthia-Crait-Sacred-Heart-Double-Tree-DC-Wedding00055 Cynthia-Crait-Sacred-Heart-Double-Tree-DC-Wedding00056 Cynthia-Crait-Sacred-Heart-Double-Tree-DC-Wedding00057 Cynthia-Crait-Sacred-Heart-Double-Tree-DC-Wedding00058 Cynthia-Crait-Sacred-Heart-Double-Tree-DC-Wedding00059 Cynthia-Crait-Sacred-Heart-Double-Tree-DC-Wedding00060 Cynthia-Crait-Sacred-Heart-Double-Tree-DC-Wedding00061 Cynthia-Crait-Sacred-Heart-Double-Tree-DC-Wedding00062 Cynthia-Crait-Sacred-Heart-Double-Tree-DC-Wedding00063 Cynthia-Crait-Sacred-Heart-Double-Tree-DC-Wedding00064 Cynthia-Crait-Sacred-Heart-Double-Tree-DC-Wedding00065 Cynthia-Crait-Sacred-Heart-Double-Tree-DC-Wedding00066 Cynthia-Crait-Sacred-Heart-Double-Tree-DC-Wedding00067
