As I do weddings in DC, a boho style is not something a client comes to me wanting very often. Many of the weddings I do are more traditional. Any chance I get to go more bohemian, I'm all for it! I loved that this wedding style had a spin with adding a more black tie element. The venue, Ted and the Bully Bar was a really fun and eclectic, and we had a ball styling it! Enjoy!
It was around this time last year that I got to do a beautiful Raspberry Plains wedding for two really cool people. Rich and Elyssa didn't want a lot of fuss for their wedding. Just good food, good flowers, and good games. They aren't much of dancers, so a lot of the entertainment was involved around lawn games, group games, and a silhouette artist. Sometimes a wedding doesn't need a band, ya know? One of my favorite pictures in this gallery is the one with the bride and her little sister. There is something so sweet about a relationship between sisters, and theirs was as sweet as can be. Their wedding was beautifully captured by Leah Hewitt Photography. Enjoy!
Today's post is from a wedding we did last August at the Meridian House in DC. I connected with the bride instantly, because she is a dancer just like myself. We could have talked about that for hours alone. Hannah and Ben's wedding was a joy to do because their color palette and style was right up our alley. She wanted a mix of light and dark pinks with pops of orange and LOTS of greenery. Hannah and her bridesmaids looked beautiful, and during the cocktail hour, her dancer friends surprised her with a "living sculpture" group dance for guests to enjoy--cool idea, right?
Congrats Hannah + Ben!
When I met Sarah and Eric, I knew I had to do their wedding. Held in the Pilates Toolbox Studio, their wedding was everything I had imagined doing--a boho girls dream. Sarah DIY'ed a lot of the decor items, which made the wedding all the more special. She hand tie dyed all of the table runners and draping for the wedding into different patterns of indigo tie dye, she handmade the soaps that were eventually the favors, and she also hand made some of the containers that our flowers when into--crafty girl! What I loved about Sarah and Eric's wedding was that it was different than any of the other weddings I had done that season. Many brides really like the muted tones of blush, peach, and white. Although those colors are timeless and beautiful, I loved that I got to go more outside the box for this wedding. The wedding was beautifully photographed by Victoria Ruan Photography.
