Today, we are featuring Erinne and Phil’s traditional Catholic wedding ceremony in Washington DC at St. Peter’s on Capitol Hill. Photographed by Bonnie Sen Creative Photography, their wedding has us so excited for summer with pops of coral and the gorgeous lace details on Erinne’s dress. Nothing is more perfect! We’ll let Erinne tell you all about their city wedding cermeony in detail, so be sure to read what she shared with us. Then come back later this morning to see their ceremony as they head on up to the National Harbor in Maryland. Be sure to scroll to the end because we have their wedding video from East West and it is too cute for words!
From Erinne: I wanted our wedding to be centered on what’s most important to us as a couple – faith, family, and fun! Because the wedding was in August, we had a color palette that was summery but not too formal. A palette of coral, white/ivory, and gold was the general guide for my bridal party. Ultimately, we cared less about a “theme” and just wanted to incorporate our cultural backgrounds throughout the day, and for everyone to have a great time.
There are so many wonderful memories from the day, but a highlight was reading a letter my husband gave me prior to the ceremony. I was anxiously trying to work out details while getting ready, but his letter helped me remember WHY we were doing this in the first place. I was reminded that there was no use in being worried or anxious about anything because I would be marrying my best friend – I couldn’t wait to see him after that moment.
Now you can see their awesome wedding trailer video from East West…
