My favorite color palette strikes again! I love the modern look of yellow and gray, and with pops of orange thrown in!? Yes, please. Janelle and Jonathan’s DC wedding from Jodi Miller Photography had me at hello or, more specifically, with those unbelievable invitations! The fun has only just begun, with the groomsmen’s plays on patterns and the bridal parties bold yellow bouquets. Be sure to come back for their reception – where they take their venue, the Carnegie Institution for Science, to a whole new level!
From Janelle: We wanted something modern and sophisticated, but with some whimsical and fun details. We loved the modern color palette of gray and yellow, with a few pops of orange color. The bridal party wore any dress or suit of their choosing in any shade of gray. Most importantly we wanted the wedding to reflect ourselves in every way. Even our invitations literally incorporated a piece of us – our thumbprints formed the heart!
One of my favorite details was my “something old,” which was my mother’s wedding rings around my bouquet and my “something borrowed,” which was my grandmother’s engagement ring I wore. I loved being able to wear something so meaningful and represent three generations of women from my family.
We loved every minute of the wedding but the first look was very special and it was nice to have a private minute before everything.
The ceremony incorporated our various heritages and religions – Christian and Jewish, Irish and Filipino. We also wrote our own vows, which made every promise that much more personal to us.
