Can I just start by saying that this wedding was an absolute dream to design. When you hear vendors talk about your dream clients, Geneva & Jason were JUST that. When we first started discussing her wedding, Geneva expressed that she wanted something different. She wanted something that wasn't typically seen in the D.C. area and because she lives in California she wanted to bring a west coast vibe to D.C.
She had a bohemian-chic wedding dream and approached us with out of the box wedding ideas to see if we could turn this rustic wedding venue (Sylvanside Farm) into something boho with a modern twist. The question then turned into "how in the world am I going to take a barn and turn it into a boho-chic space?!?!"
Well, teaming up with Jazmin of AnyVent Event Planning along with Geneva was exactly what the doctor ordered. The three of us put our heads together designed this concept for what this boho-chic wedding would look like and with our joint effort we were able to nail it! So much so, that Washingtonian Weddings featured this incredible wedding on June 6th, 2019.
Now, let's talk a little bit about her bouquet! She wanted pink King Proteas in her bouquet and I couldn't have been more excited to be able to provide this for her. If you would like to learn more about this flower, click here! She also had the most amazing orchids. They cascaded down the front for almost two feet!. This was a large bouquet for a petite girl, but let me tell you, she rocked it like no one else! I love it when brides take chances and go bold! This was her reaction when she saw her bouquet. #proudmoment
She wore a Lanvin gown from FORWARD by Elyse Walker and it had the cutest side pocket you could have ever seen. Her hair was styled by Sasha from Sasha Styles Hair, while the bride did her own makeup.
Jason rocked a mint tux from Topman and it was spectacular! I had never seen a groom wear such a different color for their wedding. It fit the theme for a boho-chic wedding perfectly and the groomsmen did not stay behind. They wore leather strap suspenders, checkered pants from J.Crew and simple button down shirts from Zara. When combined together, the look these gentlemen had was very simple, very boho and very fashion forward. Click the arrows to see more photos!
Her bridesmaids held a single King Protea flower and chose their own gowns.
Their wedding was officiated by what they termed their "officiance". He was a friend of theirs and strutted down the isle wearing a golden crown and flower robe. They stood under a triangle wedding arch designed with more King Proteas, Pampas grass and garden roses to match her aesthetic.
Sylvanside Farm's barn is about 60 feet long and the concept for the guest tables was having a LONG family style king table that seated 100 guests down the center and round tables on the sides of each barn. There was hanging greenery with glass globes, greenery garland going down the center King table and loose greenery with candles on the round tables. Ghost chairs provided by DC Rental really brought this barn a modern vibe and the candle light gave it a bit of romance. Oh! And let's not forget the disco ball and confetti! Guests danced the night away to beats from Monocacy Music Factory.
The wedding was catered by chef Rich Rosendale.
Ro of LesLoups photographed this wedding magnificently and was able to capture genuine emotion throughout the evening.
Overall it was a wedding day for the books! I look forward to creating many more boho chic weddings in the D.C. area.
