Washington, D.C., like any great city, provides almost endless beautiful and magnificent wedding venues. However, D.C. offers something the others do not. There's a certain history, a certain elegance and a little bit of dramatic flair that can be found in the wedding venues of the nation's capitol. The streets themselves even beckon for a few timeless wedding photos (a call we gladly followed).

Something about this bride is a little off. While there's no projectile vomiting or head spinning, the levitation is still enough to scare off the guests (and the groom). Good thing Regan has her demons to keep her company.

When you stumble across an abandoned house in Texas...just leave it be. This bride found out the hard way that Leatherface and his family don't play any games...unless there's a chainsaw and meathook involved.

Carol Anne is all grown up now, and no one's here to save her. Everyone's beloved little girl from the horror classic is transformed into a beautiful bride, but there's no fairytale ending or happily ever afters in this big day. It seems like the Poltergeist incident never quite went away for good...just goes to show what happens when you build on a burial ground.

Crafting Your Wedding Photography Timeline

While those beautiful wedding photos you see on Instagram and Pinterest look totally effortless, there's actually a whole lot of work going on behind the scenes to ensure they're just right (and if you don't believe us, just check out our Saturday behind-the-scenes shots on Facebook!). Don't expect you can just hire a photographer, invite them to your wedding, go about your big day and get the photos you'll cherish for a lifetime.

Leesburg is the perfect setting for an engagement shoot. The cute brick sidewalks and historic architecture are great for classy and sophisticated shots that fit any couple's style. Plus, Ida Lee Park is just a short drive away, making for a mix of settings, with the more country-esque atmosphere. Regardless, we think this engagement session really shows off Leesburg's romantic appeal!

A gorgeous estate, Whitehall makes an impression immediately, with its white-columned entrance and century-old trees dotting the landscape. The 200-year-old manor is remarkable in of itself, but the charming and intimate gazebo makes for a fantastic outdoor wedding setting.

Clifton's charming little pub in the old Texaco station was the perfect start and end point to this adorable engagement shoot. Situated in the equally charming neighborhood of the Clifton Historic District, there's plenty of picturesque photo backdrops in the near vicinity. The small town vibe offers just the right dose of Americana, from the white picket fences and wooden benches, to the bright red caboose and gently waving flags.

Set against a beautiful backdrop of Maryland mountains, Springfield Manor is a perfectly idyllic wedding setting regardless of the season. The estate, built in 1774, features a magnificent ballroom to accommodate even the largest weddings. Beyond, the private suites are immaculately adorned, for those not-to-be-missed pre-wedding photos with your bridal party. However, possibly the best part of this venue is the outdoors, where the 130 acres provide not only a pristine arbor to grace your ceremony space, but also romantic lavender fields and a lush vineyard.

Bull Run Regional Park is home to quite a bit of hiking with quite a bit of history. The trails saw action as trade routes, and then in the Civil War, but this spectacular setting more recently saw the beginnings of one couple's happily ever after.
