Heather and Ryan had an art deco color inspired wedding overlooking Washington DC when they wed outdoors at Top of the Town in Arlington, Virginia. The bride’s breathtaking wedding dress and bouquet says it all – this couple (with a lot of help from the bride’s sister) were so creative with their design and decor for the day! Keeping it simple for their wedding ceremony, so guests could enjoy the view of the city, Heather and Ryan celebrated in stunning fashion that makes us swoon! Their venue is just across the Potomac River in Virginia, so I really appreciate that they able to sneak away to Washington DC and get portrait photos on the Mall and in Georgetown. Special thanks to Stephen Bobb Photography for sharing their Washington DC area wedding images with us!
From Heather: Our wedding vision was art deco meets Moroccan – two aesthetics that appeal to us. We like rich colors, and wanted to use eggplant and peacock with slate accents. My sister is incredibly artistic, so she was the main driver behind turning our wedding inspiration into a reality.
Our main wedding priorities were photography and good food. We splurged more on these and skipped floral decorations, which add up quickly.
We were just really happy with how everything came together on our wedding day! It was also amazing to have family and friends from different stages of our lives all together in one place – and with a great view of the city of Washington, DC!
Congratulations to Heather and Ryan! Thank you for sharing your beautiful outdoor Washington DC wedding ceremony with us! Stay tuned, up next we’re sharing their perfectly purple wedding reception with you!
