Soft Sentimentality – Real Wedding of J + P

August 5, 2015

As we come upon August and the season of fall is finally arriving, we want to share a beautiful fall wedding with you!

Julia and Patrick’s wedding took place on a perfect fall day in Washington, D.C. Their ceremony was at Saint Sophia Greek Orthodox Church, where they tied the knot with grins on their faces and love in their eyes.

After the ceremony, guests made their way over to the reception. Shades of blush and champagne softly adorned the Mandarin Oriental, reflecting the elegance and charm of Julia and Patrick’s romance. The wedding was simple, which highlighted the exciting love that J + P share.

A highlight of the night was when the reception stopped and Patrick shared his surprise for Julia – a sweet song that he wrote for her. The night was filled with romantic gestures and the kind of joy that stems from two people in love.IMG_0035 IMG_0057

Classy and Charming – Real Wedding of K + J

July 28, 2015

When looking at Kaitlin and Jeff’s wedding, the perfect way to describe it can be wrapped up in one word: “classy”. This was the look that the couple was going for, and they certainly accomplished exactly what they wanted from this day!

The wedding was made up of navy, white, and soft pink colors, and all of them blended perfectly. The feeling of the wedding was gentle, yet exciting and romantic. Kaitlin explains her favorite details in her own words:

I loved how the first floor changed between the ceremony and reception.  The ceremony was beautiful with an arch of flowers and greenery that we stood in front of.  Then when we came downstairs from cocktails for dinner it was amazing to see how the space had been transformed for the reception.

The wedding was located at the National Museum of Women in the Arts, which was the perfect place for Kaitlin and Jeff’s classy and sophisticated wedding.

An All-American Duo: Real Wedding of T + C

July 3, 2015

It is Independence Day weekend, and we have a wedding to share with you that perfectly celebrates the holiday!

Tanya and Clay knew that America had to be the theme of their wedding – after all, they met as they both worked on Capitol Hill and were engaged on the Speakers’ Balcony at the Capitol! The couple had family and friends from Utah and Colorado travel to D.C. to see the sights of the nation’s capital, which was a highlight of the wedding.

The couple’s save the dates looked like campaign flyers with candidate buttons, and their welcome bags were even complete with mini pocket constitutions and chocolate Capitol Domes! Talk about the most perfect American-themed wedding. Each of their table names at the reception were places in D.C. that were important to them. One table name was “The Jefferson Monument Table”, which represented where Clay first said “I love you” to Tanya. Another table name was “The Capitol Table”, which is where the couple met and Tanya said “yes!” On their exit from the wedding, their guests were given different-sized American flags to wave around.

Tanya commented on a favorite memory, “The favors we gave out were little jars of homemade raspberry jam. My Dad is famous for making jam out of the raspberries he grows in his garden in Colorado, so a few months before the wedding my Dad taught me and my bridesmaids his secret recipe and we made all the jam together!”

Another one of Tanya’s favorite memories to date is dancing with her father to “My Girl” at her wedding. The day was filled with special moments that celebrated the couple’s love for each other and the pride they have in America!

Perfect Pair, Perfect Place – Real Wedding of K + R

June 24, 2015

Have you ever had a place that means so much to you because of the special moments and memories you have there? For Kelly and Reed, Georgetown is this place; it is a representation of memories and love from the moment they met. Georgetown is not only the place they met, but also the place where Reed proposed, and finally, the place they spent their perfect wedding day.

After attending school at Georgetown University, they both attended graduate school in upstate New York. Yet, they knew that Georgetown was the place where their fondest memories remained, and they planned their wedding to be there.

Kelly comments on the location, “My favorite moment of the day was walking through the doors of the chapel into a place that meant so much to me and seeing all of the people we love from all phases in our lives in one room – an incredible feeling! – and especially seeing Reed at the other end.”

Their ceremony was at Dahlgren Chapel on Georgetown’s campus, and their reception was at the Colonnade Room at the Fairmont Hotel. “At the end of the night, we had buses to take everyone to The Tombs (a staple of our college experience) to continue the festivities. It was truly our perfect day,” Kelly said.
