Welcome back to part two of today’s ultra glamorous wedding in Maryland! Kelli and Kyle’s big day, both ceremony and reception, took place at the swanky Sunset Room by Wolfgang Puck in National Harbor, Maryland, a spot that had sentimental meaning to the couple. If you missed their lux wedding ceremony, be sure to check it out here. When it was time to celebrate their union, their wedding reception space became one amazing dance party atop a white dance floor, complete with custom gobo monogram! The rest of the wedding reception decor was just as fabulous to match – touches of sparkle all around with hints of pale pinks and light tones on the linens and flowers. We can’t forget about the wedding cake, as it was an amazing, three tiered cake topped with a creative custom cake topper that read “Miller Party of Two.” Love it! Special thanks to everyone at Love Life Images for sharing Kelli and Kyle’s elegant wedding on the National Harbor with us!
From the bride: We wanted our wedding to be a huge party and never a dull moment. And that’s exactly what we had, the dance floor was never empty! We had a great time! The main priorities for our wedding were the photographer, DJ and the venue. I wanted our wedding reception room to be filled with candles to set the tone. Everything turned out perfect!
My favorite memory of my wedding day was our first dance. We choose a non-traditional first dance song that happened to be a more upbeat pace. My now-husband is quite shy, but during our first dance he showed moves that I’ve never seen before! He was just so happy that he couldn’t contain himself and that set the tone for the rest of the wedding reception. The room was filled with so much happiness and joy!
Our wedding planners also handmade made our table number frames with sparkle paint. Inside the frames we had song titles of specific love songs that mean something to us as a couple. For our wedding favors we had fortune cookies with a personal fortune inside that read “and they lived happily ever after #kelliandkyle2015.” Our planners created these lovely to-go boxes with silver glitter ribbon with a thank you tag for the fortune cookie favors.
