Celestial Jewel Toned Wedding At The Line Hotel DC | Laura + Mike

Back in November, we returned to the fabulous LINE Hotel for Laura and Mike’s wedding. Laura’s vision included words like celestial magic, sultry, and glitter encouraged - so I knew this was going to be an epic one! She and Mike, who resided in Adams Morgan, decided that The LINE Hotel would be the perfect venue to invite their guests to experience their colorful, eclectic neighborhood as they celebrated their marriage. Laura’s sweet mom Kim was also an integral part of the planning process and an amazing source of light and support. It was truly a joy and privilege to work with this entire family!

Their retro-inspired invitation suites by Emily Baird Design featured custom art (designed by the bride herself) of a window at The LINE, giving guests a peek at the magical occasion ahead. Laura was absolutely stunning in her Made With Love Bridal gown, with a tulle overskirt that provided two amazing looks for ceremony and reception. I loved the mismatched jewel toned ensembles for her bridesmaids + bridesman, complimented by rich jewel toned florals and lush potted plants by Sophie Felts.

Guests gathered on The LINE’s Vela Rooftop for the nuptials, overlooking amazing views of DC, followed by a feast fabulous dinner and dancing in Banneker Ballroom. Scroll ahead to see all of the pretty captured by The Madious, and cheers to Laura and Mike!

Elegant, Vintage-Inspired Evergreen Museum & Library Wedding | Liesl & Daniel

Liesl and Danny’s Labor Day weekend wedding was filled with real emotion and joy as they started their new chapter together. It was so wonderful to see Liesl and Danny reunited, given that the majority of the planning process he had been deployed overseas serving our country. I loved working with Liesl and her sweet mom Kris to perfectly curate each detail for this wedding. They have such fabulous taste and were totally willing to be creative and think outside the box, which for me as their wedding planner was a dream!

Our design inspiration came from Liesl’s vision of old world Jane Austen and fairy magic, and the Evergreen Museum & Library in Baltimore was the perfect venue to make it happen. Effortlessly elegant was the name of the game! Neutral, soft colors, lots of greenery and pops of dusty blue were just so stunning in this setting.

Guests were invited to arrive 30 minutes prior to the ceremony start for welcome cocktails (always a great idea in my book!), and then headed through Evergreen’s sprawling manicured gardens to witness the happy couple’s I do’s. For their reception in Evergreen’s Carriage House, an epic floral installation by Steelcut Flower Co. served as a backdrop for the head table, along with wreaths of soft greenery floating above guests’ tables. Vintage-inspired furniture pieces and tabletop details completed the look. The celebration continued well into the night with dinner and dancing, plus a tarot card reader to boot!

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!
