Traditional Country Club Wedding – Real Wedding of Sara + Skip

April 5, 2017

Sara and Skip’s first date was to a Michael Buble concert at the Verizon Center, after being introduced through a mutual friend who was actually one of Sara’s bridesmaids. Months later, Skip surprised her with an engagement celebration over 4th of July weekend. Just like their first months together, their wedding was also remarkable. Skip’s favorite moment of the night was seeing Sara walk down the aisle with a big smile on her face. Sara’s favorite moment was dancing to”Stand by Me” with her Dad.
The wedding colors were lilac and gold and the wedding decor incorporated the bride and groom’s personalities: romantic, classic, modern, and fun. On the day of the rehearsal, Sara enjoyed taking her bridesmaids to Yoga and then Color Bar to make and design their own earrings to wear with the bridesmaids dresses they had all picked out. It was incredible to see how their different earring designs matched their fun and unique personalities. Although the couple contemplated a destination wedding, they were happy to have decided on Congressional Country Club because it is a meaningful place to them in which they will continue to create and share special memories as a married couple.
