Diverse Design in Downtown DC

Marissa and Dave clearly put a lot of thought into creating a look of their own for their wedding day.  The rich colors and glamorous textures all work together to compliment the grand architecture of Georgetown University where they were married.  We are in love with the eclectic bridal party looks complimented by different bouquets that are made of singular components of the bridal bouquet.  The palette is just perfect for a cool weather late fall/early winter celebration of love.

A Classy Classic in our Nation's Capitol

Erin and Dylan put together the classiest celebration at The Mayflower hotel in Washington DC.  The cool neutrals, clean lines, and edited elements made for a simplicity that allowed the couple's personalities to shine through.  The details captured by the team on this one are blowing our minds. Great job Ellie and Karissa!

A Multicultural Wedding at King Family Vineyards

This stunning wedding was beautifully accessorized on every level, from the mounds of florals to the bride and groom's epic wardrobe change after the ceremony.  But the most striking feature throughout David and Tanzira's photos is the groom's expression of sheer joy in every single picture taken that evening.  The love on his face is unmistakable.  We love it!

A Marine Wedding in Warrenton

Just outside of Washington DC, Susan and Danny honored military tradition throughout their wedding by incorporating elements and ceremonies that the branch has long held dear.  The bride's option of a blush color palette and feminine design elements softened the look and made for a very distinct his and hers contrast throughout this wedding.  We think the pillow puts it perfectly.

A Traditional Celebration on the Harbor

Aaron and Maya celebrated their love by pairing ancient traditions with a chic, modern setting.  The beautiful backdrop of soaring glass buildings made for a striking statement against the tradition chuppah under which the couple was married.  This alter feature was adorned with traditional prayer shawls called tallits and the groom wore a tallit during a portion of the ceremony.  The bride and groom also held to the tradition of signing and displaying their ketubah, a formal marriage contract written in the Hebrew language.  All of this attention to time honored tradition leaves us feeling wistfully appreciative when looking back at these gorgeous photos.

A Simple Vineyard Affair in Berryville VA

Unassuming Elegance was the vibe on this couple's wedding day. Nicole and Andrew said their vows in a church under epic stained glass and celebrated their marriage in a rustic barn venue on a Vineyard.  The settings spoke for themselves and the bride's delicate lace dress complimented by the the groom's cowboy boots told a story about a simplicity and earthiness that was carried throughout the wedding details.  Check out that killer drone shot at the end that ties it all together.

A Posh Backyard Picnic in Central VA

Jeff and Nancy shared their vows on their personal property with a small gathering of family and friends.  The vibe complemented the venue perfectly in that it was laid back but sophisticated and thoughtful.  The hay was rolled from the land that was cleared for parking and the couple's gorgeous home provided a perfect backdrop for their ceremony.  A small tent hosted the festivities late into the evening and the black and white gingham screamed refined yet relaxed.  Love this "posh picnic" option for a DIY bride.

A Tropical Tryst in Puerto Rico

Roni and Mitch designed a lush and luxurious event inspired by the destination- Puerto Rico. The bold tone on tone color and metallic touches made for an expensive-feeling yet incredibly warm and welcoming reception by the sea. The deep blue and black worn interchangeably by the bridal party made for a chic under statement in comparison to the luxe decor. Such a dreamy destination wedding!

A Blush and Blue Barn Wedding

Julia and Andrew celebrated their love at the beautiful Sorella Farms in Evington, VA.  Their details were simultaneously of the moment and classically chic.  Blue and blush made for a gorgeously muted bridal party group shot and the blush underlay of Julia's dress really made all that lace pop.  And with a maiden name like Brittain that hashtag is just too clever!

A Countryside-Chic Celebration at Sorella Farms

Mandi and Donnie's wedding combined girly touches of pale pink and sequins with the rustic charm of a weathered barn venue.  This unlikely pairing reflected the bride and groom perfectly and came together to create a party representative of their relationship.  The celebration couldn't be dampened, even by the rain, as their large group of family and friends partied strong to the end to give them a farewell sparkler departure.
