In this real wedding day from Old Town Alexandria, Alex and Matt posed for photos throughout the city on cobblestone streets alongside ivy-covered brick. This combination creates a stunning backdrop for your wedding photos. Alex loved staying in the Airbnb before her wedding and highly recommends renting the loft for the bridal party. They had a live sketch artist and violinist at the ceremony. The couple chose a black-and-white color scheme to create an elegant, classic, and timeless look.
