Today we have a modern, intimate DC elopement to share – two lovely ladies that first met on Tinder, but quickly grew to a lasting friendship and eventually a relationship! They shared personal vows with family & friends and through an intimate wedding at the Omni Shoreham Hotel in DC. Love their art deco inspired design! Check it out.
Meg and Kayla are one of Tinder’s rare true love stories. They first laid eyes on each other on a phone screen and it was love at first swipe. Kayla recalled in her vows that she was immediately smitten over Meg and just knew she had to meet her. They met in person for the first time at the Dc Zoo. They had a connection neither could ignore and friendship and flirting quickly became more. After a whirlwind courtship they found themselves back at the very same zoo, Kayla on one knee, ready to spend the rest of their lives together.
When selecting a venue they agreed the both wanted to be close to the zoo which had been the background of such huge moments in their relationship, so just a few blocks away at the historic Omni Shoreham Hotel they planned their intimate “big” day. Meg allowed the glam of the hotel’s interior architecture and rich, lively history to shape the glamorous Art Deco theme of the wedding. With only 25 guests standing in formation around them, they said their own vows in front of the courtyard fountain and were presented as wife and wife by Meg’s sister.
A few of the notable details were Meg’s pear shaped engagement ring, Kayla’s stylish socks (which she will tell you look her ages to find), and Meg’s wonderfully simple yet glamorous bridal attire: a BeBe top, Etsy tulle skirt, and amazing jewelled headpiece from Nordstrom.
