Outdoor Wedding in Washington D.C.

One of the proudest moments for any creative is seeing their completed work. You get a rush of accomplishment and even a little bit of awe. This particular wedding in Washington D.C. didn't only make us feel all those things but I personally felt a bit of disbelief. I literally thought to myself, "did we just REALLY create this?!".

I know I'm being a bit biased, but I personally think this should be published in a magazine somewhere. It was that stunning.

The bride chose a classic wedding color palette of ivory, blush and hints of black. Most of the flowers were a mix of blush and ivory but we incorporated hints of black in the hard goods like black taper candles, black votive candles and the bride added black menu cards with hints of blush. The end result was spectacular.

The wedding took place outdoors or as we call it in the wedding world it was an "al fresco wedding". It was the perfect October wedding. The weather cooperated with cloudy skies but no rain, mild temperatures but not too cold and the venue's outdoor patio was perfect to host an 80 - person wedding. The Dacor Bacon House's patio seems like a perfect little intimate get-away right in the middle of D.C.

We designed a luxury wedding with a relaxed feel. Pretty much what we specialize in, understated luxury. It's our absolute favorite design style. We used baby's breath as the main flower and accented it with roses and a few orchids. I know baby's breath can get a bad wrap but if done the right way, it can cause a major wow moment for you and your wedding guests.

The bride wore two gowns. One designed by Rue de Seine Bridal which she used for her ceremony and her reception / sparkler send-off gown was designed by Yvonne Fields Design. Her makeup was done by Blush by Makki and she wore Aqua Azzura shoes.

Day-of coordination and styling was handled by Parlour Design House and the day was beautifully captured by Danielle Real Photography along with video from Nue Film.

Please enjoy this most amazing day. We hope it brings you inspiration for your very own special day.
