Christine & Phillip’s Spring DIY Wedding at Top of the Town in Arlington, VA

This Spring Northern Virginia wedding at Top of the Town is REALLY getting me in the mood for pastel colors and sunshine. I LOVE the mix of teal and pink in their color design and the couple kept things eclectic with a mix of understated vintage details. Plus they did their first dance to a Red Hot Chili Peppers song – how awesome is that? Check out Christine & Phillip’s DIY Spring Wedding feature. Thanks to Kirsten Marie Photography for submitting this one to us – a perfect Spring wedding to celebrate the first day of Spring!

We included pastel colors everywhere to deliver a vintage kaleidoscope effect , an eclectic mix of glassware for the fingers to touch, which we’ve also recently noticed to be popular in trendy speakeasies, and pink up lighting that bridged classic ambiance with views of a global city.

Capitol Wedding: Sarah & Steve’s Offbeat, Alternative Maryland Baseball Wedding ~ Part 2

As promised, we are back with Part 2 of Sarah & Steve’s awesomely offbeat Maryland wedding, which took place at Ripken Stadium! The ceremony in Part 1 dazzled us with custom vows and the groom entering from the bullpen, to ACDC. Part 2 showcases the couple’s awesome detail skills with vintage baseball playing cards as escort cards, big league chew, and more!

Sarah & Steve’s Offbeat, Baseball-Themed Maryland Wedding ~ Part 2

The bride Sarah shares her thoughts on mismatched groomsmen and mismatched bridesmaids attire:

Clearly, this was not a black tie affair so we tried to keep things quirky and fun.  Our groomsmen all wore mismatched grey suits and black chucks.  We had our two best men’s chucks embroidered with “Best Man” and my husband’s said “Groom.”

I still wanted romantic elements to the wedding though.  My husband allowed me to use the soft colors I love so I let my bridesmaids choose their own dresses in the shades of pale pink, cream, and tan.  All but two of the dresses came from Modcloth.

love these adorable, fun baseball-inspired wedding party pictures! bridesmaids blowing bubble gum and the groomsmen pouring gatorade on the groom. awesome.

Clearly the entire bunch was having a TON of fun with their wedding party pictures ~ I don’t blame them. Plus, I always feel that natural laughter like this, makes for much better pictures than the posed stuff!
