Happy Thursday Romancers! Today we bring you the beautiful wedding of Molly & Mel. Two gorgeous ladies that decided to throw a seriously stylish wedding at the Arts Club of Washington in DC. The ladies used a palette of orange and teal and incorporated a TON of fun Etsy details to their wedding style. I love that they told guests to dress for a “garden party” including donning their best hats & fascinators (how British!).

Also, I couldn’t help but share that I used the SAME Etsy artist to make clutches for my wedding too! I gave clutches to my mom & mother-in-law instead of corsages. And Molly & Mel coordinated custom orange clutches for each other. An awesome detail – and one that I love to see as a bouquet alternative!

A special thanks to eKate Photography for sharing her images.

The wedding was gorgeous and stylish. Mel’s dress was J.Crew and Molly’s was Augusta Jones. They had coordinating custom clutches by SylSyl on Etsy and Molly’s fascinator was by Tessa Kim.

They encouraged guests to dress for the garden party wedding with hats and fascinators, and their guests enthusiastically obliged. This was a gathering of some truly fabulous people. The ceremony was beautiful and the reception was a blast.

The girls got ready next door at the Hotel Lombardy, another historic building. It has a very distinct 1920’s style that I loved, and was totally fitting for this wedding. Molly and Mel got ready together with some of their friends. They just wanted a relaxing day before the wedding, so they hung out, drank some champagne, and Skyped with friends who couldn’t make it in person.




 The ceremony took place in the garden behind the club. Cocktails were upstairs while the garden was changed over for dinner. After dinner, the party moved inside with some dancing!
