Are you ready to go downtown with an ultra chic city wedding?? Jackie and Cliff held their Washington DC wedding ceremony at the gorgeous St. Aloysius Gonzaga Catholic Church in Washington DC. The couple had a formal mass followed by a fun reception in Georgetown, when even the ride to and from was fabulous! The bride wore couture while her ‘maids dressed in pastel hues and all carried variations of peach and pink bridal bouquets. So pretty, dainty and oh-so feminine! Then Cliff rocked a dapper black tuxedo that was perfectly paired with touches of gold throughout their wedding day. But, the bride’s favorite moment was seeing her groom’s reaction to her walking down the aisle, and we couldn’t have picked a better wedding day moment either – his love and expression are priceless! We love how much effort they put into their wedding ceremony and it shows in their overall wedding day. Big thanks to The Happy Couple Photography for sharing Jackie and Cliff’s beautiful wedding in DC with us!
From the bride: Our main priority for our wedding was to create a meaningful ceremony and of course, to make sure that our wedding guests had an amazing time all day! We splurged on some extras that we thought our wedding guests would love, like a s’mores bar, and photo booth, and skipped things that would have set our budget over, like hiring a calligrapher or a videographer. Instead, we asked friends to take videos throughout the night and I learned (or attempted to learn!) calligraphy.
My favorite memory was seeing my husband’s face as I was walking down the aisle. Neither of us could stop crying, which our priest joked about and that helped us pull it together for the wedding ceremony! We put a lot of time into choosing readings and composing a prayer for our Catholic wedding ceremony, so that whole time was very special and meaningful.
Congratulations to Jackie and Cliff! Thank you for sharing your stunning church wedding in Washington DC with us! Stay tuned for their wedding reception in Georgetown next!
