This crisp fall wedding day was accented with pops of blue and a striking sheath gown at Melissa and Merlin’s Dumbarton House bash. The iconic Georgetown DC venue hosted the couple’s outdoor wedding ceremony and tented reception and the affair was planned by Elegance and Simplicity. Post ceremony, guests enjoyed the perfect fall weather through lawn games of giant jenga and passed small bites from Mike Isabella Catering. We love how Melissa and Merlin utilized the color blue in their wedding design. Most notable were the blue delphinium florals and patterned fabric escort card boards. We definitely think blue is an underused hue in weddings; it can really do wonders to add vibrancy to any wedding day!
Under lanterns hung throughout the tent, guests enjoyed delectable mini desserts in addition to a specialty whiskey and bourbon bar. We love sharing this wedding with our readers because it showcases so many talented United with Love family members. From catering to tent rental, venue to transportation, this wedding is an assortment of our favorite wedding professionals at their best!
