Courtney and Todd in Washington, DC

Courtney bought her rice taffeta Carolina Herrera gown in New York City. "I’m not that girly," says Courtney. "So I loved that my dress looked more couture than bridal—but that it was still feminine enough to please my mother." Her gold earrings were a gift from Mom, and her fingertip-length veil was borrowed from a friend. Todd’s black tuxedo, purchased from Hugo Boss, was accented with a boutonniere made of stephanotis.
