Iron Gate: We are over the moon!

Happy Wednesday, we are to thrilled that we get to feature Dana and Phil’s wedding today! Their custom laser cut to match the Iron Gate was by far one of our favorite projects! She said she’d never date a coworker and he said he wouldn’t fall for an American girl, and boy are we glad they were both wrong. We are also so thankful that the amazing Bonnie Sen was there to capture the whole thing! Check out the wedding below!

Friday Funday: District of Columbia themed!

Happy Friday everyone! We hope that you all had a great week and are excited for the weekend! As I travel back to the nations capital, all I am thinking about is everything D.C! So many people do themes for their wedding but the D.C. theme is always the most used one.  It can be done so tastefully and transform your wedding into a classic.

Real Wedding Wednesday: D.C. Gallery Romantic Autumn Reverie

Julie and Forrest looked as if they’d stepped straight off the set of this season’s top romance movie as they strolled through serene surroundings in the capital city. Elements of their ornately-planned party are lavished in a rich palette of blush and wine, accented with an occasional pop of pine green and glimmers of gold. These colors fit refreshingly into the cozy fall colors of the open outdoors, but stood out elegantly against the candle-lit indoor ceremony and reception area at the LongView Gallery, an industrial art gallery that every now and then hosted such unique events. All credit and kudos of documentation goes to the photographer of this wedding, Eric Kelley – such beautifully-captured images most assuredly requires a public audience!

 


We’d also like to shower praises on each of our fellow vendors for extraordinary workmanship and team spirit! This wedding embodies a rich quality of timelessness that leaves one in silent awe, and we couldn’t have made it without all of you!

Real Wedding Wednesday: Downtown D.C. Modern Metallic Mix

Katie and Steve wanted a wedding of contemporary feels while at the same time highlighting the historical significance of a city they both grew up around – and so, with each endearing moment captured Abby Jiu Photography, the pair celebrated this special day at Potomac View Terrace at the American Pharmacist Association. Here, with its beautiful rooftop and historic facade, the couple donned an artfully arranged palette of gold and rose gold with brilliant berry hues, all juxtaposed against stark blacks. As an added voice to their originality, a traditional string quartet serenaded the pair with some of their favorite Kanye West hits, while exquisite edibles of mid-Atlantic and Southern origins later surrounded the people’s senses. Bedecked with floral-tipped terrariums through and through, this wedding was truly a modern visual masterpiece!

We would like to give a big shout-out to our team of vendors, as none of this could have been possible without your tasteful contributions! And to our lovely bride and groom, may this day set the basis of bright aesthetics for the future!

We’re back in Georgetown, D.C. for today’s real wedding feature! Sammi and Gary’s dazzling day of nuptials brought guests from across the globe to Dumbarton House, where they enjoyed the pleasant outdoor weather surrounded by gossamer greens of the gardens. With a palette of light gold interspersed with periwinkle blue, the cheery atmosphere touches even those of us who were not present at the wedding! After the ceremony, Sammi switches from her elegant, white traditional garb into a shimmery golden gown, expressive of the joy and cheer of the day!
