Did you see the modern, gray and yellow wedding ceremony we shared this morning? Well, now we’re back with part two from Jodi Miller Photography! Janelle and Jonathan kept their modern feel (and awesome paper goods!) alive as they moved into dinner and dancing, but added another unique element, too. Since they were getting married at Carnegie Institution for Science,  what would be more perfect that periodic table elements as their table numbers!? They also had a puzzle guest book and chalkboard chair signs, giving a schoolhouse meets sophistication feel.

From Janelle: Our main priority was to enjoy ourselves – good food and good music. Jon took pleasure in creating the playlist himself. We splurged on photography and lighting – two artistic elements to create a certain atmosphere that day and a way to capture it forever.

Although all of the little details were completely perfect, what we truly appreciated most was how lucky we are to have such a supportive group of friends and family – the wedding would not have been the same without them!

Janelle’s advice to other DC-area couples:

I think being flexible is key. We had a Friday evening wedding to get the venue we wanted and it also made getting some deals with vendors a bit easier. We also purchased a cute return address stamp from Etsy, which we’ve used on everything (and still do!) – best $25 spent.
