We’re turning up the glam factor this afternoon with Nicole and Fernando’s wedding reception in Washington DC. Their modern soiree at Arena Stage is chocked full of glamour and all out loveliness captured by Sarah Culver Photography Photography. With a menu inspired by the groom’s Bolivian heritage and décor inspired by the couple’s love of all things contemporary, this couple’s big day took chic to a whole new level!
From Nicole: We really wanted a modern venue but had a little bit of a hard time finding the perfect space in the city but the moment we walked into the Arena Stage, we knew that it was it. From there, everything else fell into place from colors to decor, food and even our invitations.
Fernando is from Bolivia, so it was really important to incorporate aspects of his culture into the wedding. We worked with our caterer to include Bolivian cuisine on the menu and our band learned a traditional song to play at the reception.
