Real Wedding: Stephanie and Johnathon Reception!

3 Jul

Here are the beautiful photos from Ethan Yang of Stephanie and Johnathon’s reception in the Pavilion room of the Ronald Reagan Building. They used their color story of eggplant, blush, and silver to make the room have a romantic setting while adding touches of modern luxury. I loved the mixture of square and round tables along with the clear resin chairs. Each guest received a yummy cookie from Snickety Snacks with a loving Zombie couple as a playful nod to the couples love of the walking dead. DJ Dan Goldman kept the dance floor packed all night and couples lounged on AFR rented pieces to keep with the lounge feel. Enjoy! All Photo Credits to http://www.ethanyangphotography.com

Real Wedding: Rani and Loc

13 Jun

Last summer we had the pleasure of working with Rani and Loc for their wedding at Top of the Town. They chose to hold their ceremony at the Netherlands Carillon overlooking the amazing scenic views of DC. They were such a joy to work with and the photos from Tracy Timmester were beautiful!

Some really great details about their wedding was that they chose to infuse both of their cultures together as well as their love for DC. She changed into a beautiful Sari at the reception with gorgeous gold accessories. Guests found their seats on Chocolate coins with their names and table numbers imprinted on each. The absolute best treat was the ice cream cart we had positioned for guests for the walk from the ceremony to the reception venue. Enjoy their beautiful day!

Real Wedding: Areum and Jon

31 Dec

We were lucky to have Areum and Jon’s wedding at the Carnegie Institute published on District Weddings  earlier in December. I wanted to share it in full for our readers and show off the great subtle details we added in to establish a sweet Ombre theme. They wanted to keep the wedding romantic, soft, and use a color palette of blush to lavender in an ombre gradation.  They held their ceremony and reception both at Carnegie with Spilled Milk  catering with a 4 course menu of Short Ribs, cornbread and shrimp, and ending the night with a s’mores bar. Jon is a DJ with MyDeeJay  and so of course the music was a huge part of the night making sure that people kept to the dance floor! Enjoy!

Real Wedding: Shannon and Chris

9 Dec

We had the pleasure of working with Shannon and Chris last year at the Torpedo Factory, and boy did this group know how to party. They were married at St. Marys Catholic in Alexandria and then the group went into DC for some iconic photos near the Capital Building. One of my favorite parts of the evening was that they brought their adorable Pug with them everywhere so it could be a part of the photos and the fun. After the photos, the party moved on to the Torpedo Factory with live music through out with the always talented Gonzo’s Nose bringing the house down after dinner.  Instead of a traditional wedding cake, they had a variety of Dangerously Delicious pies and fresh churned ice cream for late night sweets. Enjoy!
