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!
