We’ve had so much fun looking back at some of our favorite real weddings in the Washington DC area season by season, but today we’re doing something a little different! It’s always hard picking from a year’s worth of fab local weddings but there are some that we just have to share – they’re just too good not to! Juli and I (somehow!) narrowed it to our top four favorite weddings. Here we go…


Sarah and Stephen are boaters, so the Eastern Shore of Maryland was a perfect fit for their elegant, vintage inspired wedding day. I can’t get enough of their dreamy first look and portrait photographs captured by Cassidy DuHon Photography. In addition to all of the gorgeous florals and these dreamy portraits I was telling you about, this couple threw quite a party for their friends and family!

From the lush floral design to the dreamy garden ceremony setting, I can’t be sure of what my favorite detail of Samira and Chad’s vintage-inspired day is! Filled with pretty blooms and gorgeous string lighting, this wedding in Virginia is a serious show-stopper with some steal worthy style that will be all over your Pinterest page.

Sarah and Mike’s at-home wedding is as sweet as they come! Intimate and meaningful, every detail dreamt up by this adorable duo is completely personalized. This adorable duo and their small wedding party headed to EatBar in Arlington, where they rented out the back room and and arranged for a sampling of some of their best dishes, set out buffet style in lieu of a formal sit down dinner.
