Classic + Sophisticated DC Wedding

Kathleen describes her July wedding to Dan as “Kate Spade meets Charleston” and we have to agree! A timeless and chic color palette of pale pink and gold is both perfectly preppy and effortlessly romantic. After a ceremony at Georgetown University’s Dahlgren Chapel of the Sacred Heart, guests made their way to Arlington’s Army Navy Country Club for the elegant reception. Everlasting Flowers accented the classic beauty of the ballroom with low and lush ivory centerpieces, linens from La Tavola in the palest of blush, and beautifully coordinated chivari chairs from DC Rental with patterned cushions. Kathleen is resplendent in a Watters gown from Katherine’s Bridal (with Kate Spade shoes, naturally!), and her maids are gorgeous in Bill Levkoff. We are completely in love with the lovely images from Katelyn James Photography!

    Sophisticated + Elegant Chicago Wedding

    Lake Forest’s elegant Armour House was the perfect setting for Lynn and Han’s classic, elegant Illinois wedding. The garden’s picturesque gardens, complete with flowering trees and pond, was an angelic setting for the couple’s outdoor ceremony, and the stately interior, with its grand marble stairway and sun-filled garden room, made for the most lovely reception. ArtQuest worked with Lynn and Han to bring their sophisticated and classic vision to life in a whitewashed reception with shimmering gold. But fashion was the star of the day, and we are utterly in love with the fluttering BHLDN bridesmaids dresses and Lynn’s luscious Pronovias gown. Each and every image from Evan Hunt Photo is absolute perfection!

    Cozy Autumn Wedding in Deer Valley

    With striking yellow aspens, a light dusting of fallen snow, and crisp Park City weather as the backdrop, you know that Erin and Brandon’s fall fete was going to be lovely. Add in event design from one of our absolute favorites—Michelle Leo Events—loads of candlelight, and lush ivory florals from Urban Chateau Floral and you have something truly spectacular. A neutral color palette of brown, gold, and gray allows the beautiful interior of the Montage Deer Valley to shine, and we love the decor, which boasts both a nod to autumn with whitewashed pumpkins and a bit of whimsy with golden antlers. Erin’s buttery Monique Lhuillier gown is the perfect choice for the elegant soiree. Each and every image from Rebekah Westover is pure perfection!
