Read all about the design details of this lovely French luxe styled shoot, and see the complete vendor list below.
The Josephine Butler Parks and Recreation Center with its beautiful arches and columns was the perfect venue for our Parisian theme right in the heart of Washington DC.
Dakota and Carling (Darling) are a real life engaged couple and are tying the knot next May. Our bride donned a mermaid cut blush colored wedding gown from Ebrada Atelier in Leesburg, VA. Her hair was styled into an elegant updo and her makeup featured soft pinks by Gild the Lily Artistry. Dakota wore a modern gray tuxedo to compliment Carling's blush gown. Carling's bridal bouquet featured coral charm and blush pink peonies, pink astilbe accented with lavender and white roses. The head table was adorned with green cymbidium orchids to compliment the blush and gold theme.
As a side note, this shoot, and weddings for that matter, don't always go as planned! Our plan was to shoot at the venue and then go across the street to Meridian Hill Park to capture the beautiful steps and gorgeous fountain. However there was a torrential down pour all day. Fortunately, the Josephine Butler Parks Center had overhangs that allowed us to still shoot outdoors and have shelter from the rain.
