Classic + Crisp DC Wedding

A classic, elegant twist on Americana was the theme of Ginny and Matt’s DC wedding, and we love the crisp, pretty vibe of it all. Their ceremony was held at St. Patrick Catholic Church—the oldest parish in the district—which features gorgeous stained glass windows and a pretty stone exterior. Bridesmaids held to the simple, classic scheme in navy dresses from J.Crew, while Ginny wore a column style Mikaella gown from Betsy Robinson’s Bridal Collection paired with a cathedral length veil made by her mother. The reception at DAR Constitution Hall included more classic decor, including cream florals from The Enchanted Florist, enhanced with pops of greenery and gold details. We adore the combed icing on the cake by Pastry Xpo, which also features a whimsical wooden bride and groom on the top. Enjoy these lovely images from Marta Locklear!

    Romantic + Sophisticated Waterside Wedding

    Romantic, chic, and stunning, we are completely smitten with Kimberly and Joshua’s wedding at Newport, Rhode Island’s Belle Mer Island House. The waterside venue was the perfect setting for their nuptials, which featured lovely ivory blooms from Greenlion Weddings, curtains billowing with the seaside breeze, and a soft yet classic feel. Kimberly brought a little bit of her Michigan home to Rhode Island, with favors of jam canned by her family with fresh Michigan berries. Each and every image from the amazing Rebecca Arthurs Photography is positively gorgeous!
