Classic Countryside Autumn Wedding | Megan and Zack

Happy New Year friends! I'm so excited to kick off my first blog post of 2018 with Megan and Zack's wedding day from this past November. While it turned out to be an exceptionally cold day, you could barely feel it with the love between these two. While posing for portraits outside in 30 degree weather, I specifically recall Megan say "I'm so happy that I can't feel a thing!".

Megan was stunning in a classic, elegant ballgown by Vera Wang, paired with adorable sparkly sneakers to keep her toes warm. Keeping with tradition, Megan and Zack decided not to see each other prior to their ceremony, which was officiated by Zack's family pastor at Jackson Chapel in Frederick, Maryland.

We pulled inspiration from seasonal autumn colors, the venue setting in Frederick's countryside, as well as their favorite flowers. Floral & Bloom designed gorgeous, textured bouquets consisting of soft, neutral tones and flowing silk ribbon for Megan and her bridesmaids. We pulled in pops of rich color with eggplant bouts for Zack and his groomsmen, and mixed into the low floral arrangements on guest tables. The other half of guest tables had elevated arrangements full of greenery and magnolia, adding warmth and texture to the pure white tent. One of my favorite details was the added greenery expertly installed on the tent's existing chandeliers by Floral & Bloom. A little addition that made such a big impact on the overall ambiance of the space!  

Check out some of the pretty details ahead captured by Rebecca Wilcher! View the full vendor team at the bottom of the post. Congratulations to Megan and Zack, it was a joy to be part of your big day!

Glam DC Ballroom Wedding At The Mayflower | Orly & Marc

Within minutes of meeting Orly and Marc, I could immediately sense the love and respect they had for each other. They don't take themselves too seriously or sweat the small stuff, and their wedding day reflected the lighthearted, awesome couple that they are.

Orly and Marc's wedding at The Mayflower Hotel began with an inviting cocktail hour, followed by a traditional Jewish ceremony in Mayflower's East Room. Bergerons Flowers designed an absolutely breathtaking chuppah adorned with florals, branches and elegant draping. The ceremony aisle was lined with glass pillar candles and rose petals where their 220 guests took their seats as they officially became Mr. and Mrs. 

The celebration continued in Mayflower's Grand Ballroom, decked out in stunning pink, peach and white florals, lots of romantic candles and amazing live music performed by Onyx. See all of their gorgeous day captured by The Madious ahead! Look closely, and you may spot a rare cameo of me in front of the camera ;)  Congratulations to Orly and Marc, it was an honor to be part of your special day!
