Washington D.C. Ethiopian Wedding | Esete and Messay

An absolute pleasure working with Esete and Messay on their Washington D.C. Ethiopian wedding! So much tradition, happiness and dancing. Their DMV area wedding had the ceremony at St. Katherine Ortodox Church and the reception at Prince George’s Ballroom.

Needless to say Esete was an absolutely stunning bride and while the day was not one hundred percent perfect at no point she complained once. Messay is a handsome fella who absolutely adores Esete and would do anything for her and her smile. Even buy a fake plane ticket to D.C. just to be able to propose at the gate he first laid eyes on her.

Their story started in the Chicago airport. They met by simple coincidence, while Esete traveled from DC to Chicago and Messay to DC. It was pretty much love at first sight and what a great idea Messay had. Instead of picking her up at the Chicago airport he picked her up at the gate and proposed to her right then and there.

Enjoy their cinema same day edit and some of my favorites photographs bellow!
