Cozy up today, because we are sharing a wedding in DC that is the perfect example of comfy-meets-fancy right in the heart of the city! Matt and Christina had home in mind when they got married in Washington DC. They wanted their wedding day to feel like a party in their own home, and the warm and inviting vibe of their day tells us that it was mission accomplished! The elegant and romantic wedding flowers in tones of peach and grey looked picture-perfect next to the blue tones of bridesmaid dresses and even the groom’s bow tie. Their wedding took place at the Josephine Butler Parks Center in Northwest DC right across the street from Meridian Hill Park, where the lovebirds tied the knot in a wedding ceremony officiated by one of each of their sisters – how special!? Their big day was all about love and family, filled with happy tears that even make us mist up a bit too, and it would not have come together without the help of Washington DC wedding planner, Gingerwood Creative. A special thank you to Washington DC wedding photographers, Taylor & Ben Photography, for sharing Matt and Christina’s wedding ceremony with us!
From the bride: We wanted our wedding in Washington DC to feel like a scaled-up version of a party that we’d have at our house. We wanted it to be comfortable, welcoming, fairly unstructured, but still a little fancy.
One of each of our sisters co-officiated our wedding ceremony, and there was as much heartfelt laughter as there were heartfelt tears.
Having the people that you love, from all parts of your life, together in the same room is an amazing feeling. Seeing old friends reconnecting, bringing our two families together, and knowing that Matt and I made that happen is a wedding day memory that is never going to fade.
Congratulations to Matt and Christina! Thank you for sharing your romantic Washington DC wedding ceremony with us! Stay tuned for their personal and non-traditional wedding reception that we’ll feature tomorrow.
