Traditional Timeless

A Classic and Memorable Wedding at Carnegie Institution for Science

November 2, 2016

This classic Washington, D.C. wedding was an unforgettable and memorable night for the bride and groom. Both the ceremony and the reception took place at Carnegie Institution for Science which gave the wedding a traditional and timeless touch. The inspiration behind the wedding day was: “A classic contemporary black, white, and gold wedding with playful twists, whimsical details, and personal touches to reflect our story.” The couple also had a custom champagne bubbly bar, one of their favorite moments of the evening.

“Our first look was memorable in ways we could never have imagined. The emotion of that time was such that we couldn’t have been happier to have it in private, just the two of us” shared the bride. The groom’s face as he turned around to see his beautiful bride would give anyone chills and tears of happiness.
The bride shared more of their special moments throughout the day: “My something borrowed was a stunning cathedral length Italian tulle veil from my best friend Sarah, my something old was a vintage diamond pin my Grandmother wore on her wedding day, my something new was a stunning Mark Patterson diamond pendant from Timothy, and something blue were custom made shoes from Milk+Honey. Timothy surprised me with something I had always wanted at my wedding – a photo-booth with every imaginable prop, even though it had been “cut” early in the process.”
We have no doubt this wedding will forever be memorable and special to the bride, groom, their friends, and family.

Timeless Wedding at National Museum of Women in the Arts

October 26, 2016

Monica always wanted a timeless wedding that illustrated a classic aesthetic and romantic details. The couple, who met in art school, shared a love for art, music, and beauty.  They wanted all of these elements to be reflected on their special day starting by their venue selection: the National Museum of Women in the Arts. The bride shared with us: “The museum itself is absolutely beautiful. There is a classic and timeless elegance in the grand marbled staircases and crystal chandeliers.” Blush, white, and metallic silver and gold tones embellished the day and were present in everything from the bride’s bouquet to the bridesmaids dresses.

Personalized and delicate details were present throughout the special day. Almost all of the paper materials were designed by the bride herself on a letterpress machine from 1899 and her “something old” was her grandmother’s lace fabric which was used to decorate the cake table.

The bride shared with us: “My favorite moment was walking down the aisle to my future husband. My father was holding my arm on my left side and beaming with pride and my beloved was standing in front of me with love in his eyes. Truly one of the most blessed and happiest moments of my life.”

Countryside of England to DC, The wedding to remember!

August 31, 2016

Cristin and Piers planned for an elegant wedding in the countryside of England.   One double-booked English venue later came the necessity of a Plan B.  Cristin and Piers arrived at the brilliant, albeit last-minute decision to have their wedding in Washington DC, closer to family.  Thankfully the Anglophile couple’s favorite English band was able to travel.  Being in the design industry coupled with extensive travel led the couple to an old-world-meets-contemporary-luxury aesthetic for their wedding.

The Anderson House was the perfect venue to marry sleek modern design with antique flair.  The Anderson House is rich in architectural detail.  This served as a pleasing counterpoint to the light and airy color palette and florals.  Cristin designed the all-white paper suite herself as well as the C+P monogram used throughout the decor.  Cristin’s stunning Oscar de la Renta gown was complimented by her Grandmother’s white gold and diamond bracelet.

Thankfully Plan B in this case was not second best.  Cristin and Piers got ready on separate floors of Cristin’s Grandmother’s nearby home.  Guests danced the night away and exited to monogrammed sugar cookies as they sent the couple off with sparklers.  Cristin and Piers’ wedding was a fully charged celebration of a love that has already learned the importance of improvising!

Luxury Wedding Vibes with B&D

August 3, 2016

Our dream was for it to be traditional yet modern; detail oriented and completely our style. Our wedding was magical, timeless, luxurious and fun!  Our crystal chuppah that also served as a gorgeous centerpiece above the dance floor, is something we will never forget. The STUNNING floral wall that served as the backdrop during our ceremony and then for the band during the reception, was a personal favorite.  Guests were trying to guess the total number of flowers!

The reception was certainly one of our favorite moments of the night – three different floral centerpieces dripping with ivory blooms atop sequined linen tables and mirrored top tables with gold pedestals. Perfect lighting complete with pinspotting to accent each centerpiece, the cake, the crystals, it all!  Our wedding logo featured throughout, on the custom white dance floor, etched into the backs of the bride/groom ghost chairs, the cocktail menus, and more!

Even though we wish we could go back to our wedding day and do it all over again, we are so grateful that we have the most stunning photos/video from the wedding so that we are able to relive it all the time! Truly a night to remember and a fairytale having only just begun… -Barak & Danai

Special Moments: I wore my mom’s veil for photos, she showed it to me months before we realized how perfect it matched my dress and it made for a sentimental moment!

Sweet Caroline + Ryan! – Classic Washington, DC Wedding

July 20, 2016

No better way than to start wedding Wednesday…this gorgeous classic wedding is just perfect and we love hearing about it directly from the bride…

Both of us knew right away that most importantly we wanted all our friends and family dancing all night. To do this we knew we needed to hire an amazing band and jump start the night early with something that would get everyone on their feet. After thinking for a while we decided that we would swap the father/daughter dance with the mother/son dance because Caroline and her Dad were planning on kicking into ‘Sweet Caroline’ half way through their song. Sweet Caroline is something Caroline and her Dad dance to at any family event where there is dancing and it is also the famous 7th inning stretch for the Boston Red Sox which is the home team for Ryan’s entire side of the guest list. That choice got everyone excited and onto the dance floor, where they stayed for the entire night! Success!

Favorite Details: After Ryan found the church, St. Joseph’s on Capitol Hill, we had the idea of mimicking the starry ceiling from St. Joseph’s and projecting a starry night sky onto the ceiling at the Mellon.  We thought a starry night would really capture what that time of year is about! Our September Starry Night was everything we wanted and more!

Florals and Inspiration Behind the Big Day: Design wise we thought for a long time about what is a signature September look? Since early September still feels very much like summer we knew we wanted the wedding aesthetic to be classic and clean with a lot of creams, whites and crisp greens.

Aimee and Cindy from A. Dominick Events helped us form this ‘crisp and clean’ vision even further into the design for the floral, linens, place settings and more! Throughout the process they really understood what we had in mind and what we were trying to build.

When we stepped into the reception space we were blown away with how everything we wanted was translated perfectly at the Mellon.

Our September Starry Night was everything we wanted and more!
