Union Market Wedding |Jeff + Dave | Washington DC

When I first met Dave and Jeff at Union Market last fall, they were letting their imaginations run wild while they toured the unique warehouse event venue, Dock5. This fairly new wedding and event venue has a very industrial look with cement flooring, exposed metal beams and roll up glass bay doors to let the warm spring air in. I got to hear their grand plans that day, and I couldn’t wait to see all they dreamed about come to life.union-market-wedding001union-market-wedding002I was lucky to have Doug as my sidekick for the day.union-market-wedding003union-market-wedding004union-market-wedding005union-market-wedding006union-market-wedding007union-market-wedding008Jeff and Dave along with their wedding planner, Jocko, transformed Dock5 into a colorful, almost nightclub-like, space for their friends and family. The expansive warehouse space was a blank canvas for creating the atmosphere they wanted: masculine, modern, comfortable, cool.

It must have been the pressure to perform the flower girl job. 😉dock5-wedding012The large open room was divided with almost floor to ceiling burgundy drapery, creating an intimate space for the ceremony, and the other side ready for a party. 🙂dock5-wedding-dc013union-market-wedding014washington-dc-gay-wedding-photographer015Dave and Jeff exchanged vows they wrote themselves – not a dry eye in the place!washington-dc-photojournalism016union-market-wedding017dc-gay-wedding-photography018lgbt-wedding-photography020union-market-wedding021union-market-wedding-photographer022union-market-wedding023union-market-wedding-photography024union-market-wedding025union-market-wedding026dock5-wedding-photography027union-market-wedding028union-market-wedding029union-market-wedding030union-market-wedding031washington-dc-gay-wedding-photographer032dc-wedding-photographer033You can call this their one DIY element. “Incredibly geeky”, (their words cause I love me some Zelda) “custom wedding rings based on the Legend of Zelda video game series. Each ring is stamped with the Triforce on the outside and half of this quote is engraved in each ring: “IT’S DANGEROUS…” “… TO GO ALONE”. In the game, the Triforce represents all the strength, wisdom, and courage in the world, and it has the power to grant the wishes of whoever holds it.”

That’s my thing. 🙂industrial-dc-event-spaces036union-market-wedding037union-market-wedding038Oyster shuck-er girls!union-market-wedding039They had lots of friends and family that wanted to share their love for Jeff and Dave with heartfelt speeches.union-market-wedding040union-market-wedding041dock5-wedding042union-market-wedding043union-market-wedding044union-market-wedding045union-market-wedding046union-market-wedding047washington-dc-wedding-photographer048union-market-wedding049union-market-wedding050union-market-wedding051union-market-wedding052union-market-wedding053union-market-wedding054dock5-wedding055union-market-wedding056union-market-event-space057union-market-wedding058dock5-wedding059union-market-wedding060union-market-wedding061dock5-wedding062union-market-wedding063union-market-wedding064Milk and cookies?!
