Real Wedding Wednesday: Dumbarton House Black Tie Golden Galore

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! Audra Wrisley Photography captured these glamorous moments with artful skill.

This glitteringly detailed event could not have been possible without the contributions of our fellow vendors! As for Sammi and Gary, may the golden glow of this day accompany you throughout your marriage!

It’s that time again: Real Wedding Wednesday! Today’s couple is Libby and Elliot, who just celebrated their love with a gorgeous Georgetown wedding. Their love story is just as sweet as their blush and sage color scheme.

Real Wedding Wednesday: Sammi & Gary

It’s hard to believe that Sammi & Gary’s wedding was held in DC. Their romantic wedding at the Dumbarton House in Georgetown looks more like it was set in a European garden or even at a fairytale castle! We loved Sammi’s gold and periwinkle theme, which was expertly tied together by Kaitlin of Cheers Darling Events. Every shimmering detail matched Sammi’s second gown, and we can’t get over it! It’s gold and glam with an art deco design – you can’t miss it! For more photos from the day, please visit photographer Audra Wrisley‘s beautiful blog! We’re obsessed with her work!

The day Caitlin and Greg’s wedding invitations arrived at The Dandelion Patch was a big day! We’re talking rose gold foil and hydrangea envelope liners. We fell in love!

The next best thing to receiving this pretty paper was viewing Lindsay Fauver’s beautiful photos from Caitlin and Greg’s Georgetown wedding! This classic wedding included simple, white bouquets and family photos on every table. Our favorite shots of the couple feature romantic glances in front of the Lincoln Memorial where Greg actually proposed to Caitlin. How sweet!
