Chantal and McKinley, both D.C. natives, were married last year at the Mandarin Oriental and their wedding was modern yet elegant.
The couple incorporated her family’s Caribbean culture by having a steel pan player during the ceremony and cocktail hour. The favors were boxed pieces of “black cake”, a traditional home-made rum cake in Guyana, South America. Here is a whole bunch of pretty to get your week started!
Last June, Devon shared the incredible engagement photos of Kaja and Dan in Union Station. Today, we are lucky enough to see the wedding photographs, also shot by Stephen Bobb at Love Life Images, Inc. After the fun engagement session at Union Station, I knew the wedding would be amazing…and, you will see, it really is!
Kaja wore blue Vera Wang gown. She was stunning. They walked to the ceremony through the streets of Georgetown – how fun!
How fabulously “DC” is this photograph? The ceremony and reception took place in the District’s Zone 2 in Georgetown. This spot is close to where Dan proposed to Kaja not too long ago.
The reception was at the fabulous House of Sweden. How about these beautiful sunset views over the Potomac?
Before the wedding party was announced, the bridal party had fun doodling on this white board.
The House of Sweden has absolutely incredible event space. The design is so sleek and so clean – I just love it.
Here, Kaja and Dan enter from a glass elevator. How cool is this ceiling?!
The party was jumping with tunes from DJ Steve Hoffman from Good Note DJs.
