Welcome to Stephanie and Chase’s Washington DC wedding! It had all the touches of classic black and cream summertime DC wedding that celebrated the city that we all love. Their wedding, photographed by Kristin Gardner Photography, included a lot of personal touches and details. (You can see lots of of them in their reception later this morning!) For now, you can feast your eyes on her unexpected yet stunning champagne wedding dress. Instead of traditional white, she chose a champagne colored gown that was a perfect compliment to the black, white and blush tones of the flowers and the rest of their wedding decor.

From Stephanie:  Our main priority was for our guests to enjoy their time in DC, celebrate in the best manner possible, and to feel appreciated for all of their time spent traveling to our wedding festivities. We also wanted to enjoy the weekend ourselves. We timed the weekend out so that we were abel to relax while getting ready for the wedding, and were able to mingle with and entertain all of our guests throughout the festivities.

More from Stephanie:  Spending the day relaxing and being pampered with my best friends and bridesmaids was my favorite memory from the day. The day was just perfect! I also loved all of the dancing at the reception! I was so happy to see everyone enjoying themselves. Chase’s favorite memory was “seeing Stephanie walk down the aisle smiling. Once I saw that she was smiling, it calmed all of my nerves!”
