Here at United with Love, we love a romantic and unique wedding day. Maggie and Eddie had just that! Because of this, we were excited when DC area wedding planner Vicky Choy of Event Accomplished shared this timeless downtown DC wedding ceremony with us because Maggie and Eddie were married by three officiants! Each one represented an important part of their lives, something that we find so sweet! The Reverend Neely Towe was the bride’s pastor when she was growing up and a very close family friend. Father Jack Wall is the president of Catholic Extensions and close family friend of the groom’s family in Chicago. Father Ted Munz was the President of Loyola Academy where the groom attended high school, and is a close family friend. We love how they both incorporated elements of their past into their ceremony to add that special touch!
The design of Maggie and Eddie’s wedding strikes a balance of modern with a nod to the classic and it all started with the gold belt that accented Maggie’s wedding dress! Maggie carried a bouquet of classic ivory roses, white ranunculus and white phalaenopsis orchids; a white phalaenopsis orchid boutonniere finished off Eddie’s tuxedo. We love all of the floral choices by Petals Edge because they really went hand in hand with the overall aesthetic and looked absolutely stunning in the space.
The room was bathed in a warm amber lighting which accented the architectural details throughout. Dinner tables were dressed in ivory, accented with gold chargers and napkin rings, navy blue menu cards with gold ink, and centered with an arrangement featuring a ring of boxwood surrounding white hydrangea, stock, roses, and lisianthus. The wedding cake was a stunner by Fluffy Thoughts Bakery and mimicked Maggie’s belt with it’s gold banding design. The beautiful confection was situated atop a wreath of boxwood.
