Congratulations Betsy and Rachel

Betsy and Rachel wanted their wedding to be personal and romantic with an industrial feel and the The Ritz Carlton Georgetown had the exact aesthetic that they were looking for — exposed brick, enormous windows, steel beams and a beautiful garden for their outdoor ceremony.

Gravitating to darker and richer tones, the couple created custom navy and copper wedding invitations by Flourishing Penguin 

Navy and copper details were threaded throughout their wedding decor and accented with lavish greenery and gorgeous floral arrangements by Highway to Hill 

The couple wanted to include their three cats and a dog in their wedding day since they couldn’t be there, so they named a signature drink after their fur babies!

Happy First Anniversary Betsey and Rachel we wish you a lifetime of love and laughter!

Congratulations Liv and Rich

September 23, 2018. Category: anniversary, fall wedding, luxury wedding, real wedding, Washington DC

Although neither Rich nor Liv are originally from Washington DC, they knew that they wanted to get married here. They felt that so much of their love story happened in this great city; their first date, their first home, and their engagement that wanted to “invite” the city to their big day and the iconic Hay- Adams was the perfect fit for their classic DC wedding! 

As two Gettysburg College grads, this adorable couple wanted to include details that were reminiscent of their early years; Gettysburg College “World Famous” Chocolate Chip Cookies as a late night snack, a cocktail hour filled with a modern take on their alma mater’s colors – ginger jar blue and orange dahlias, and vintage Gettysburg stamps on their gorgeous blue and white wedding invitations.

Trailing greenery, crystal chandeliers and a gorgeous mix of ivory and white roses and orchids were suspended from the celling transforming the ceiling of the Hay- Adams into magic!

The couple added a pop of color with a mix and match of  beautiful blue and white china and a stunning cake by ButterCream Bakeshop, which mirrored the lining of their wedding invitations.

Happy First Anniversary Mr. and Mrs. Clough we wish you a lifetime of endless love, laughter!

Congratulations Jermaine and Scott

September 16, 2018. Category: anniversary, DC Wedding, fall wedding, real wedding, weddings

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.

Falling for Fall

September 14, 2018. Category: Fall, fall wedding, trends, Washington DC, wedding inspiration

When the air turns crisp and leaves begin to change, the charm of a fall wedding is irresistible – It really is one of the perfect times of year to get married!

Although the first “official” day of fall is still a few weeks away, we got to experience our first cooler days this past weekend. Though we know they will be short lived, this is DC after all! Like many things in the city, the weather is “unpredictable” although it did have us dreaming of one of our favorite Fall colors palettes this season: Moody Plums and Rich Burgundy – The perfect colors for any elegant affair!

From bridal bouquets, to bridesmaid dresses, wedding stationery and decor, the possibilities of adding these versatile colors to your Fall or Winter wedding are endless.

Here are a few ways we had incorporated this gorgeous hue into some of our DC Weddings.
