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.

Spring is in the Air – Real Wedding of Elise + A.J.

March 29, 2017

We met at a dinner party hosted by mutual friends. Our first date was a stroll around the Tidal Basin during the Cherry Blossom Festival. We got engaged on New Year’s Eve before heading out to celebrate our engagement and ring in 2015 with friends! We wanted a classic and timeless wedding and got exactly that. When I was young I visited downtown Washington, DC and saw the young women in their business suits and sneakers and told my father that one day that would be me. It didn’t take very long before I made my dream come true. It only made sense to marry in the city that we met and fell in love in! National Women in the Arts is and will always be a timeless and classically gorgeous venue.

A White Wedding – Real Wedding of Amanda and Brian

February 9, 2017

Amanda & Brian always knew when planning a January wedding that snow was a possibility, so they were delighted when the forecast called for a few inches! Despite the freezing temperatures, these two (and their wedding party!) braved the cold. Every detail from the elegant gold welcome mirror and hot cider bar to the oversized seating chart and branches dripping in florals proved that nothing went unthought. They chose plum and gold for the color scheme to warm up an otherwise chilly day! Guests enjoyed dancing the night away in the Carnegie rotunda.

Love Illuminated – Real Wedding of Susie & Christopher

February 2, 2017

So much inspiration came from the brides planning background in donor realtions. Inspiration taken from the Mauritshuis and the Lange Voorhout Palace (where the bride had planned past events.) This couple was on a mission to find something that had a similar look and feel. They ended up with two gorgous locations with similar attributes: St. Regis Hotel Washington DC and the iconoic Dalgreen Chapel. They were nothing short of perfection. The bouquets of baby’s breath and the wedding programs were a few of the brides favortie details. This wedding speaks volumnes to a timeless look, and we love the traditional elements. As the bride and groom sealed their marriage with a kiss, the 6:00 p.m. sun illuminated the whole chapel through the large stained glass window above the altar!

Jingle Bells – Real Wedding of M&R!

December 21, 2016

“Since we both love the holidays and got married a week before Christmas, that was our inspiration.  We wanted the wedding to feel very traditional and elegant, but also wanted it to feel like Christmas without focusing on red, green and snowflakes.  I had seen a picture of a holiday table scape with flowers in a Ginger jar on a tartan tablecloth and I immediately sent the picture to my mom, and said, lets make this happen!”

No way…how amazing!

Our limo driver was a guy named Don.  Our first date was at a National game.  When we left we couldn’t find a taxi and Rob saw Don staring in from of a 1960’s limo.  Rob asked if he was available and he was, so we paid $20 for Don to take us to a bar on Capitol Hill.  During the ride Don asked how long we were married.  We said it was our first date, by the end of the ride he said “You two are going to get married.  I know it.”  Rob proposed 9 months later at a Nationals game in the same spot where we first met.  When we walked out of the stadium Don was there to drive us home!  So, it was only natural that Don was there to drive us to our wedding.  Although, Rob forgot to tell Don to pick me up at the hotel to drive me to the church, so I had to take a taxi!
