Today’s runway-to-table wedding inspiration created by Elizabeth Duncan Events along with a group of Washington DC area wedding vendors is an opulent, over-the-top design created with royalty in mind, and we can’t get enough! They took layers of gold and deep red (perfect for a holiday season wedding here in the DMV or anywhere!) and created a wedding concept and theme off of the inspiration from this sophisticated look by Valentino – a red layered lace, long sleeve dress that isn’t easily forgotten! We love all of the tall centerpieces (Hint: Its easy to see through when chatting with other guests!). Of course, this modern wedding venue in the heart of DC looks so urban chic with a beautiful bride to soften the clean lines. The beauty of this regal wedding inspiration lies in the details – right down to the mini gold lamps on the table to match the picture-perfect table numbers. We can’t get enough of each little layer on this swanky sophisticated wedding day that makes for a perfect Washington DC area wedding setting. Thank you to Sweet Tea Photography for sharing these images with us!
From Elizabeth: For our wedding inspiration, we turned to the fashion greats like Valentino who showed over-the-top, dramatic and decadent shades of red for the 2015 fashion season. We paired deep, textured reds with gold and cut crystal in an opulent and luxurious design fit for royalty.
