It’s officially spring today – yay!  We might even be dancing for joy over here.  We’re celebrating the first day of spring with a quintessential Washington DC spring wedding from Bellwether Events and Matt Mendelsohn Photography.  Karli and Kevin were married at Halcyon House in Georgetown, with an elegant pink and green color palette perfectly suited for the season.  This wedding also has one of my very favorite spring details – peonies!

From Janice: Karli and Kevin’s fathers had been business partners for years, but Karli and Kevin didn’t start dating until a combined family vacation a few years ago.  The romantic and relaxing locale stirred up feelings between them and the rest is history!  They live in Virginia about 45 minutes outside of DC, but decided on a quintessential DC wedding at Halcyon House.

I adore the dichotomy of Halcyon House.  Upstairs you have this meticulously decorated and beautifully maintained Federal Home.  Outside you have lush gardens overlooking M Street and the Potomac River.  Then you walk downstairs to the studio with its cavernous ceiling and rough concrete walls and it feels as if you have been transported to a completely different place.

Karli and Kevin, along with their floral designer Janet Flowers, took full advantage of this dicotomy, using soft pinks and whites in the floral designs upstairs.  Downstairs was minimally accented with green and white flowers and a lot of glass and candles.  The green uplighting added washes of color and drama to the room.  Long tables with green linens, as well as acryllic table tops on black metal frames, and black chivari chairs complemented the entire look.
