To our irreplaceable readers: we have a treat for you!
Maybe you’ve taken the weekend off from planning your wedding (does this ever really happen?) and Monday comes up faster than you imagined that it would. You may be feeling a lack of inspiration as you come back from a relaxing weekend. Not to fear – the DW team is here for you!
Monumental Mondays are going to be days where DW lists a number of the best resources in D.C. for you! Living in D.C., the Washington Monument is a reliable reference point to where you are in the city. This is exactly what District Weddings wants to do for you – be reliable, and be a point of reference for everything that you need while planning your wedding. That is why Monumental Mondays are being implemented: to be there for you in this amazing and exciting process!
Today, we are focusing on some amazing Event Planners that will make this whole event planning process stress-free for you.
Take a look! (Listed in alphabetical order – all planners are created equal.)
Please understand that we love and support all of our local event planners!
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.
Jen and Chris wanted to have a “DC” wedding that everyone would enjoy – and without a doubt, they succeeded in creating a memorable and fun celebration for all! The romantic understated look was filled with white flowers by Amaryllis, simple white table settings, a patterned green table linen, and oodles of candles.
The National Museum of Women in the Arts allowed the couple to have multiple spaces to create separation and movement throughout the wedding; the ceremony on the first floor, the cocktail hour on the third floor with the exhibits, the dinner on the mezzanine, and then dancing on the first floor.
I hope everyone is having a fabulous Monday! Today I have the incredibly sweet wedding of Lauren and Aaron at the Dumbarton House! Thank you to Sweet Tea Photography for sharing it with us! Natural, casual, comfortable and beautiful to boot – I think I am in love!
