Late to the blogging party today guys! But the shades of pink in this real DC wedding are ON POINT because the cherry trees in my neighborhood are ALREADY blooming. I don’t think I am ready to say bye to winter just yet (Evie didn’t even get to play in any snow), but it’s been nice to be biking to work, and spending weekends at the playground with her. But also, I am terrified for our climate and my allergies are already starting … but also WARMTH. So yes, I am conflicted.
But here’s a gorgeous modern Mormon DC wedding to help distract us from the conflicted feelings on the weather (oh and everything else going on).
The day started off being cold and windy and rainy but held off long enough for us to take some fantastic photos of the family and bridal party around the garden areas of the temple.
We decided to get married on what turned out to be one cold, windy and rainy day in April. As active members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, there was no doubt that we wanted to get married in one of the church’s temples. Since there is no temple in Virginia, we decided to get married at the Washington, DC Temple.
A temple marriage is a private ceremony, but friends and family were eagerly waiting to greet the newly married us, as we walked out of the temple that seemed like something out of a fairytale with it’s marble structure and elegant features.
Our reception took place in Downtown Richmond at Havana 59. The venue was full of character- from the rooftop terrace and eccentric chandelier to the crumbling plaster walls and string lights. We chose this venue because of the warm atmosphere and authentic Cuban food.
In the months leading up to the wedding, every detail from the handmade photo booth to the centerpieces was designed and created by us!
