Mackenzie and Mike met the old fashioned way – at church! Once engaged, Mackenzie immediately started planning a classic, Grace Kelly-inspired fete. The two knew that they wanted to get married at the LDS Temple in Kensington Maryland. Because the temple is a sacred space without photography allowed, they then chose to have a ring ceremony at the Newseum in DC in front of a beautiful paper flower wall dreamed up by one of our favorite vendors, Bellwether Events! Following the ceremony was a welcome reception on the terrace with hors d’oeuvres and vibrant mocktails. Dinner was a seated affair that was followed by a night of dancing and an amazing streamer send off to cap off this chic and modern Newseum wedding!
We thought their escort card display was absolutely to die for! They started with simple gold picture frames – an easy to DIY piece – and added some of Holly Chapple Flowers‘ amazing floral pieces to create a unique and chic display. We also love the way the couple utilized warm uplighting to bring a rich and vibrant tone to the whole affair while tying in the texture and colors of the flowers. Another one of our favorite elements of this grand Newseum wedding were the delicious favors handed out at the end of the night. Guests were given caramel apples as a parting gift and we are so sorry we missed out! They look to die for. Thank you to Michelle Lindsay Photography for sharing this beautiful and rich City Chic Oasis DC Wedding with us today!
