Real Weddings: Melanie + Scott

What better way to celebrate the launch of EAD’s Washington DC wedding guide than with a beautiful DC wedding!  Melanie and Scott’s celebration absolutely fits the bill – gorgeous images by Terra Dawn Photography, a fabulous rehearsal dinner under the Key Bridge, and an elegant ceremony and reception at Dumbarton House. The rehearsal dinner was held at the Potomac Boat Club – the bright and colorful setting is perfect for a rehearsal bash, and the view can’t be beat!

Melanie and Scott selected and ordered fabric for the reception tables, and wine bottles in silver buckets filled with flowers did double-duty as gorgeous centerpieces.  Fun fact: Melanie’s florist, A Little Shop of Flowers, is the same florist she ordered her prom boutonniere and corsage from!
