I can’t think of a better way to mirror this HEAT than to feature a beach-themed wedding! Remember this adorable couple? Well Nora & Brent officially tied the knot at one of Arlington, VA’s most beautiful wedding venues, Top of the Town and they successfully tied in their love of the beach to their wedding day.

Reception Venue:  Top of the Town

To go along with the beach theme – Nora & Brent chose a beautiful shade of icy blue!

And this right here is why Top of the Town is such an amazing venue – just LOOK at that view of DC that you and your guests get! Nora shares more:

One of the biggest reasons we chose Top of the Town as our wedding venue was the amazing fairy tale view of our amazing city. I truly cannot express how magical it felt to be there with all of our family and friends after our ceremony. It’s the type of wedding a girl always dreams of her entire life, a fairy tale to say the least, that’s what it felt like at our venue.

More from Nora on their color choice and decision to bring the beach theme to their wedding:

We chose blue! We love the beach so we thought we would bring a little of it to our city of Washington DC. We had lots of beach themed elements including our center pieces, table settings, wedding favors!

One of my favorite little touches were our fondant figures of us. Brent played baseball at Mason and I, tennis so our neighbor made us our little icing figurines (a baseball and a tennis player)!

LOVE the font, color and overall design of these beach-themed “Bride” sign

such a beautiful and EASY beach-themed wedding centerpiece!

We couldn’t of done this without several amazing people, first and foremost my parents. They have been my rock for many years, and they gave my husband and I the most amazing wedding we could of dreamed for.

My photographer, Melissa Waller was by far the most amazing photographer in the world. She captured the most amazing moments of our day, and our pictures will last a lifetime.

Cute beach-themed wedding favor idea! Sea glass!

We chose sea glass as our wedding favors, this was one of my favorite touches. We chose little beach gift boxes and selected pieces of sea glass to put inside for each guest and tied them off with ribbon.


Nora shares her favorite part of the wedding day:

One of my most favorite moments was actually a surprise. At the very end of the reception my mom brought out over 200 glowsticks (one of my favorite beach memories of the past), and everyone was wearing them. It was the most amazing scene, everyone dancing with their glowsticks as DC glowed the the backround. An unforgettable moment, and a memories that will last forever.

Congratulations Nora & Brent! Thank you for sharing all the beautiful details from your beach-themed wedding at Top of the Town! A special thanks again to Melissa Waller Photography & Two Bright Lights for making this submission possible!
