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!

Whimsical, Garden Wedding At Airlie | Warrenton, VA - Brianna & Ben

I'll always remember Brianna and Ben's wedding as a testament that rainy wedding days can truly be magical. They might say that rain on your wedding day is good luck, but its also the most incredible light for photos! If you don't believe me, just look ahead to these stunning images captured by Stephanie Dee Photography.

Brianna and Ben go way back to being high school sweethearts, and their love stayed strong through college while living in different states, through graduating and beginning their careers. When I began working with Brianna, Ben was stationed in Hawaii and the next time they would see each other was their wedding weekend, making it all the more special. To add to the excitement, Brianna would be moving to Hawaii to join Ben just after the wedding day!

We created a soft, romantic wedding design that would compliment and enhance Airlie's lush, secret garden-like setting. I loved the added contrast from pops of black and white anemones throughout the florals by Floral and Bloom. Brianna is already gorgeous on any given day, but she made an absolutely stunning bride and its obvious she and Ben are crazy about each other. A big congratulations and Mahalo to Brianna and Ben, who I know are having an wonderful newlywed life in Hawaii!

Classic DC Wedding At The Mayflower Hotel - Sarah & Jeff

It was a gorgeous day in the midst of Spring for Sarah and Jeff's big day. The Mayflower Hotel has quickly become one of my favorite venues to work with in DC. Not only because of it's classic, breathtaking event spaces, but because their team is truly second to none (shout out to Kelly Dodds!).

Sarah and Jeff's wedding day was magical from start to finish. Jeff set the tone by proposing to Sarah at Disney World on a private cruise, and I loved how they tied in subtle nods to Disney throughout the wedding day. Sarah came down the aisle to an instrumental "Tale As Old As Time" from Beauty and the Beast. In a gorgeous, beaded ballgown from Kleinfeld Bridal, she could have easily passed for a Disney princess herself! 

They said their vows under a dreamy chuppah adorned with purple and white flowers, and hanging glass bubble candles. Guests danced the evening away to live music performed by Round Midnight in Mayflower's opulent Grand Ballroom, and finished off with a delicious funfetti cake from Milk Bar topped with a Tale As Old As Time cake topper. 

I hope you enjoy these stunning images by the incredibly talented Audra Wrisley. Scroll down to the bottom of the post to see the full vendor dream team!
