WINTER IS COMING. We’ve got food, toilet paper, and ice melt. Evie & I are as ready as we can be for the impending doom blizzard that is coming our way. Hopefully I see you guys on the other side of the weekend…. have fun and be safe out there Romancers! For today we have a REALLY gorgeous and rather cool styled shoot put together by a bunch of local Washington, DC wedding vendors. They used black & gold colors and the inspiration of the soulful Marvin Gaye to create the shoot.
Everything was shot at the venue Marvin, which is named after the famous crooner and is a newer wedding venue option in Washington, DC up on U Street. I think you’re really going to like the details & design inspiration in this one Romancers, especially if you are planning on having gold and art deco pops to your wedding. Happy Friday!
From the vendor team:
U street is known for its music and soul and this shoot took inspiration from the soul and classic architecture of the venue and the area. We wanted to capture the elegance, moodiness, and romance of Marvin. We chose the couple to showcase the diversity of the area, which has seen much change in the last decade or so. The majority of the bride and groom portraits were shot at the gorgeous and historic Meridian Hill Park, which is only a short walk from the venue and also a popular location for wedding portraits.
