From bridal lace to a string quartet, a classic Southern wedding with all the fixings is always a timeless affair. With Katie and Kevin’s wedding, the Mason-Dixon traditions met with modern elements, which took the swoon level to new heights. With cathedral “I do’s” and a country club chic celebration, Katie and Kevin’s nuptials joined everything there is to love about the summer season.
A light color palette of blush and sage was the only cool complement to this warm June wedding in Washington D.C. Inspired by a tone of modest elegance, Katie had designed the sophisticated ballroom with minimal petite floral décor details. Pops of vibrant pink not only accentuated the bridesmaids’ bouquets, but takes center stage in many of the reception arrangements. Wedding guests were welcomed to cocktail hour by a seemingly traditional string quartet, that quickly surprised (and delighted!) everyone by playing everything from pop rock to The Game of Thrones theme song.
Playing on their vineyard engagement, Katie and Kevin personalized wine bottles for guests, who then granted them congratulatory wishes as their guestbook. After a sit down dinner, decadent chocolate Oreo buttercream and s’more cupcakes were served as the savory wedding cake and guests kicked off their heels to dance into the night. An ultra romantic vibe reigned throughout the evening to make this Katie and Kevin’s wedding a simple, elegant and memorable occasion
