Bright and Blissful – Real Wedding of M + K

May 27, 2015

When Maureen and Kyle met through mutual friends at a Labor Day barbeque in 2009, they were unaware that they would be set up on a blind date just a few months later. And when Kyle said he wanted to show Maureen a new card game in June 2013, she did not know that the cards he dealt her would propose one of the most important questions of her life: “Will you marry me?”

About a year after the proposal, Maureen and Kyle’s summer wedding took place in Washington, D.C. Their ceremony occurred at St. Peter’s Catholic Church, and their lively reception happened at the Hotel Monaco. Their wedding colors were as bright as their smiles, with shades of coral, red, and ivory.

Before the wedding, the couple put their love on display and took pictures around some of the most iconic places in D.C., including the Lincoln Memorial and the Smithsonian. Their love for each other can be seen in the way that they smile when they look at each other, and this love was shown throughout their wedding day. Maureen and Kyle’s wedding is the epitome of a summer wedding as it was bright, warm, and filled with sunshine.

Modern Memories – Real Wedding of K + A

May 20, 2015

When you walked into Kristie + Andrew’s wedding, you felt completely at home. The couple assigned family members and friends to greet and welcome wedding guests upon their arrival at the Carnegie, creating a warm and inviting environment. With the music strumming familiar tunes and laughter humming, dancing children were plentiful.

A classic color palette of navy, champagne and gold was used throughout their attire and décor, while the flora featured succulents, pebbles, and Manzanita branches. In concert, these elements created a delicate juxtaposition between modern and rustic.

Kristie has a love for the written word, inspiring her to incorporate a unique font for her wedding day programs and signage. She also enlisted the hand-lettering skills of her new sister-in-law on her wedding invitations and escort cards.

We hope you enjoy this classic DC Wedding!

College Sweethearts – The Real Wedding of J + W

May 6, 2015

Georgetown University sweethearts, Jane and Watson, planned an elegant black-tie wedding at the ornate Anderson House. The 50-room mansion is full of intricate marble floors and gilded papier-mâché ceilings. Inside a venue so elaborate the couple chose to keep the decor minimal, sticking with simple elegance: white flowers and delicate tea lights.

The ceremony was held at Georgetown University’s intimate Dahlgren Chapel where most of their wedding party was made up of friends from their college days in D.C.

This fun loving couple was brought together seeing the world through traveling, both separate and together! Their honeymoon was no exception – where after their wedding they hopped on a plane to Russia and the Maldives! Jane and Watson’s night was the true definition of a timeless and classic wedding here in the heart of D.C!
