Traditional style meets Old Town Alexandria:

Happy Real Wedding Wednesday everyone! Today we are featuring Cady and Johns wedding day! We love the story of how this couple met. Cady fell in love with her boss John and the rest was history! This couple definitely took advantage of Alexandria’s old town charm and created this gorgeous ceremony.  On top of that we are so lucky that Rebekah Emily Photography caught it all! We loved creating this gorgeous traditional suite for Cady, and we are so happy we got to be a part of their day in some way! 





We’d like to thank all the vendors who made this day possible! We love every opportunity we get working with you!

Real Wedding Wednesday: Courtney & Moshe

This Real Wedding Wednesday features Courtney and Moshe’s D.C. wedding. This wedding actually took place a few years ago. While it could be considered a “throwback,” we were eager to share it on the blog when we discovered the invitations in our records. These stunning photos prove that selecting a classic wedding feel will create a timeless look that you can cherish forever! 

Courtney and Moshe met in Chicago and did long distance, until Courtney moved to the capital. Celebrating their new home, the couple decided to plan their wedding in D.C. with our patch partner Karson Butler Events! We loved their soft pink florals and skyline invitations, expertly photographed by Vicki Grafton Photography. It really was an all-star team of vendors!
