Liz and Russell were married at All Saints Church with a reception that followed at the Chevy Chase Club. Their big day was filled with elegant and traditional D.C. style. The soiree featured soft blush and ivory hues, from the bridal party to the stationery to the decor. Thank you to the oh-so-talented Michael Bennett Kress Photography for sharing this gorgeous celebration with us! Happy Monday, all!
Today we’re switchin’ things up a little bit…..adding a little sexy to the mix! From Sweet Tea Photography -
We are so excited to finally publicly announce that we are now offering Boudoir portrait sessions. We have actually been offering these sessions for about 4 years now but typically only booked clients that specifically asked if we do so. Our clients have been so happy with the sessions that I’ve become more and more open to the idea.
Now some of you are probably wondering what the heck these sessions entail. Typically bride’s will book this session and take beautiful photos of themselves in order to gift them to their future husband on their wedding day. So I guess you would think of it as “pin-up” photos. Basically it’s a portrait session with fun lingerie, much like pin-up images, that the bride gifts to the groom as a wedding gift. There sure haven’t been any complaints from the grooms!
Liza and Alexander were married at Kenwood Country Club with an ivory, blush and black palette with pops of champagne and gold sparkle.
The stylish bride rocked a Maggie Sottero gown with a custom cathedral veil with embroidery and lace. Liza’s mother’s pearls stood for her ‘something borrowed’, the “I Do” blue rhinestones under her heels acted as ‘something blue’, and her great grandmother’s ivory clutch played the role of ‘something old’. To top it off, Liza donned a rhinestone garter as ‘something new’ — oo la la!
This wedding meshed elegance with fun seamlessly as the guests hit the dance floor hard with DJ Billy Z playing tunes all night. To see more, check out their video by Stan Pe Films.
After meeting the lovely Saivita and hearing about her love of all things flowers, we dreamed up the idea of doing a photo shoot together. As planners, we are often amazed at how different a table can look by changing the rental elements even with the same flowers. And these lovely images were born. Sai provided a few gorgeous arrangements of blush roses and trailing Jasmine all set in concrete cubes. The juxtaposition of concrete against the exposed brick, at The Loft at 600 F Street, made perfect sense.
Our first look was inspired but the adorable teal plates and loads of clear glass candlesticks (all rentals are from DC Rental). We loved how the mix of clear and color played together for a polished but still romantic look.
The second table look was inspired by gold accents. Gold is huge this year, but can become too much very quickly. By mixing the Tuscan cross back chairs, with the lacy chargers and the gold the overall effect is rustic but current and dressy enough for a DC bride.
Bonnie Sen did an amazing job capturing the all of the looks and details and as always was a pro to work with on the shoot.
