[VIDEO] Billy and Forest’s Washington DC Wedding

Paul Morse Photography We are grateful to Bowen Films for submitting this gorgeous highlight reel from this Washington DC wedding. Videographer Whitney Bowen shares:

“The wedding of Billy and Forest was a beautiful occasion, representing the joining of two great families. Allison Jackson of Pineapple Productions creatively and masterfully executed an incredible wedding to celebrate the love between these two. Floral design by Amaryllis helped transform the Mellon Auditorium into a unique space for guests to celebrate into the night.

“The couple shared a special first dance to Marc Cohn’s “True Companion” and the energy and love present throughout the day and night was truly magical. Billy and Forest’s wedding remains one of our all-time favorites!”

She’s right! It’s an energetic and inspiring video from start to finish, but one of our most favorite elements in the hilarious line from a toast from a Father-of-A-Groom at the top of the reel. We congratulate Billy & Forest and thank them for sharing their special day with us!
