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: Westbury Manor Ethereal Garden Escapade

Today’s Real Wedding finds us at Westbury Manor in Long Island, New York, where Rachel and Charles (Cap) exchange vows surrounded by sophisticated foliage of the venue’s outdoor garden. Throughout the ceremony, rich shades of greenery juxtapose tastefully with its classical counterpart in white, but not without subtle tweaks to the traditional palette that make this wedding all the more intimate! Additional hues of blush and airy blues leave the couple and loved ones faces fresh and absolutely aglow against the landscape’s outstanding elegance! Of course, none of this would be visible to us without the lovely Cadence Kennedy, who expertly captured moments from this eventful escapade to leave us in silent awe and satisfaction.
