Andrew and Julie’s DC wedding was quintessentially classic, reminiscent of its locale. The wedding party enjoyed a leisurely morning at the Ritz-Carlton Pentagon City as Julie slipped into her stunning Liancarlo gown, and then made their way to Arlington’s Restoration Anglican Church, a bright and airy chapel overflowing with sunlight. The couple worked with Dutch Floral Garden, who created beautiful one-of-a-kind window decor for the chapel, with no two windows being alike. Afterward, the stately Army Navy Country Club was home to an elegant reception. The combination of magnificent chandeliers and towering centerpieces brought intimacy and elegance to the grand ballroom. Guests captured a glimpse of the Washington Monument from the rooftop cocktail hour and then were treated to a miniature version inside at the escort card table—such a fun touch! The Lego monument was built entirely by hand by none other than the groom himself, and the bed of grass surrounding the monument was real, soft-to-the-touch lush green grass. Guests danced the night away to the sounds of DJ Evan Reitmeyer, and then Andrew and Julie escaped down the grand staircase among hundreds of fluttering bubbles. Each moment is beautifully captured by Stephanie Yonce Photography!
