E+K knew they wanted to include their sweet, goofy Greater Swiss Mountain Dogs in their engagement session, and since their front garden was practically exploding with pink peonies, a home session could not have been more perfect! It seems so appropriate that I kicked off this summer with them, and will close out the summer with their wedding this weekend!
Last month, A + B brought friends and family together in NW Washington for a “chinoiserie chic” wedding celebration. The day started with a first look at the DC War Memorial, followed by an al fresco ceremony and reception at the Westin Hotel in Georgetown.
A’s petite bouquet was the perfect accent piece to her sophisticated gown with beautiful bow detail.
A+B met in DC, but lived in California for a number of years, so they knew they wanted to have an iconic DC landmark as the backdrop for their first look, and the DC War Memorial was the perfect location.
Blue and white ceramics and a variety of white flowers lent an air of chinoiserie chic to their dinner.
Once the dancing started, the only pause was for the couple to cut their Fluffy Thoughts cake and thank their friends and family for their attendance, and to quickly re-start the party!
Last month, the East Coast welcomed the West Coast as California-born bride H and DC-raised B tied the knot at The Line Hotel. These two - who met “the old fashioned way” at a bar (Pearl Dive on 14th Street to be exact) - could not have been a more fun couple to work with (their first dance was to the classic “Let’s Get it On” by Marvin Gaye), and I loved how excited they were for their wedding throughout the entire planning process, keeping their eye on the prize: at the end of the day, they would be married and surrounded by the people they love the most. It didn’t hurt that they also planned a gorgeous wedding with modern but timeless details that shared their story as well as complimented their venue. They said their vows on the roof overlooking the city, before heading downstairs where guests found their seat courtesy of a gorgeous boxwood champagne escort wall. Dinner had a casual elegant wine-country vibe, a nod to the bride’s family, and once Sound Nation kicked off the party, it didn’t stop until late into the night, with the bride and groom leading the way.
