A Timeless Congressional Country Club Evening

A Timeless Congressional Country Club Evening

Kristina and Patrick married on the most perfect May day at St. Mary’s Catholic Church, a staple in Old town, followed by a rowdy yet stunning reception at Congressional Country Club. The couple opted to forgo a first look and see each other at the altar of the church, and the love between them definitely could be felt by all. Their bridal party wore a mix of Navy and pink carrying simple hand tied bouquets from DaVinci Florals. The reception was elegantly draped in cream roses and hydrangea and gold candelabras which perfectly accented the Clubs timeless decor. I personally loved each of the couples photos taken during a quick pop over to DC’s iconic memorials before heading to the reception. Enjoy their wedding and see more of their photos in their feature on the Washingtonian Bride and Groom Blog!

Sam and Steve’s Merriweather Manor Fall Wedding

Sam and Steve’s Merriweather Manor Fall Wedding

A mixture of Navy, cream, and evergreen made up the story for Samantha and Steve’s fun filled fall wedding at Merriweather Manor. We were fortunate to work with an amazing group of vendors to bring the couple’s vision to life and create a party that goes down in the Roberts & Co. books as one of the best crowds we have ever had! S&S wanted to make sure that the day was filled with laughter and fun, and not overly formal which was easily accomplished with their loving dog Reese leading the processional, surprise popper place cards, yummy Georgetown Cupcake dessert bar, and irish dancing all night long!

Although it did rain for a portion of the day, the couple didn’t let a little sprinkle keep them from marrying on the patio overlooking the lush Virginia countryside. Guests moved into the manor house for cocktails followed by a plated dinner from SMC under the tent. Enjoy a peek into their beautiful day!

Classic DC Wedding at Carnegie Institution

Classic DC Wedding at Carnegie Institution

Jen and Dave were married a few years ago at the Carnegie Institution, which started our love affair with one of DC’s most iconic venues. From the amazing marble columns to fantastic staff that help produce events within the space, we have had the pleasure of running, designing, and being on site for over 10 Carnegie weddings throughout our years in DC. J&D wanted to pay homage to the city they lived and loved, so we used their color story of Berry and Slate intertwined with the DC Skyline to tell the story of their wedding decor. While ALLLLLL of our brides are beautiful, I will never forget when Jennifer walked out of the hotel. She looked like the perfection of classic glamour and her undo and makeup by Kelli Fink was simply breathtaking! Enjoy a snippet of their day and see more images on United with Love from their recent feature!

Jennifer & Michael’s DAR Preppy affair!

Jennifer & Michael’s DAR Preppy affair!

Jennifer and Michael came to us to plan their fall wedding at DAR in the heart of DC. We helped them curate an amazing group of vendors and a warm preppy color story of pinks, mint, and gold to run throughout the day. I loved seeing their wedding featured on United with Love earlier this year! Unfortunately the weather did not cooperate and their outdoor ceremony was moved into the O’Byrne Gallery which made the moment feel more intimate and was still beautiful! The ceremony was officiated by the grooms brother, and the bride carried a textured bouquet featuring succulents by Petals Edge. The couple met in Chemistry Class so we created a unique test tube escort card display to incorporate the idea that “It all started with Chemistry!” We love these unique moments we are able to build for our clients with our in house workshop. Guests dined on a full plated dinner followed by desserts from DC staples like Georgetown Cupcakes and Pie Sisters.
