Franny & Robert met 5 years ago in Miami. She was studying law and he was working on his LLM on a Fulbright scholarship. Of course, they also met just two weeks prior to graduation, after which Franny moved back to DC and Robert moved back to his native Germany. Not that years of communicating over long distances, as well as numerous trips to Germany and back, is any kind barrier for two people who are meant to be together.
All that, of course, brings me back to this past weekend, where I had the pleasure of photographing a small, intimate reception for Franny and Robert at Franny’s parents’ house in Chevy Chase. They had gotten officially married just over two weeks previously in a small courthouse ceremony, and wanted to celebrate with their closest friends family, including Robert’s parents, who were visiting from Germany for the very first time. There was lots of laughter, great stories about past and future and wonderful moments between new families.
Congratulations to both of you!
