This handsome couple wanted a wedding that was “classic and elegant without pretense,” so they chose the Meridian House—a historic D.C. home known for its impressive European-style architecture for their gorgeous September wedding!
This dapper duo arrived to their wedding, in a 1964 Rolls-Royce with a eucalyptus garland. Amaryllis Floral & Event Design covered the doorway with white Tibet roses, smilax vines, bush ivy, and eucalyptus creating a stunning backdrop to welcome their guests.
Their intimate garden ceremony focused on family: Scott entered with his sisters, and Jermaine with his mom – each chose a sibling to be his “best person.”
After the couple exchanged emotional vows, guests enjoyed cocktails in the property’s grove of linden trees, then moved indoors for dinner.
The couple wanted a “romantic but modern” reception, so they opted for pillar candles on risers, chic tableware, and tall beveled glass vases filled with flowing white dendrobium orchids (along with other mixed florals).
The couple’s chic invitation suite by Cheree Berry Paper was inspired by the gilded mirrors, gold trim, and architecture of the Meridian House.
Marigold & Grey created welcome boxes that showcased “their story,” popcorn from Scott’s home state of Iowa, Mississippi cheese straws for Jermaine, gourmet chocolates from their home in Washington D.C., homemade “Ted’s Tarts” from their favorite comfort food restaurant, and of course, a Beyoncé cookie, because they’re big fans and even chose “Halo” as the processional song for their ceremony!
Happy First Anniversary to one of the loveliest couples we have had the pleasure of knowing!
We wish you a lifetime of love, laughter and many more adventures.
