Westin Grand Wedding

Trevor and Mary had their wedding at the Westin Grand in D.C. which has an amazing courtyard and window filled ballroom!

The color scheme, preppy pink and lime green, could be found everywhere – bridesmaids wore fun, satiny pink frocks and heels, tabletops were adorned with green linens and pink place cards, and pink and green flowers were hanging all throughout the big day. Even the adorable “flowerpugs” wore pearl collar-necklaces with green and pink leashes – super cute!

Planner, Lesley Cohen, tells us, “My favorite moment was during the ceremony processional. One of the “flowerpugs” (as Mary called them) slipped their collar and took off running! She was quickly caught but the guests were laughing. It definitely helped to relax the entire atmosphere.”

The centerpieces by Yellow Door Floral Designs were large arrangements of fluffy pink flowers shaped to look like a large gift boxes tied up with ribbon  - a present for each table!
