Courtney and Todd in Washington, DC

A couple celebrates their wedding surrounded by artwork at one of the city's oldest museums

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.
