We are loving all of the different shades in today’s blue hued Congressional Country Club wedding. This bride and groom weren’t afraid to play with varying cool tones; from baby blue to aquamarine, teal to navy, this Maryland ballroom wedding includes them all. We adore the patterned linens mixed with the teal rimmed plates and white goblets. How fun and unique are those?! Their all white wedding floral design paired perfectly with the blues and created a crisp, cool atmosphere. Thank you so much to Bonnie Sen Photography for sharing this Congressional Country Club wedding with us today!
How did you two meet? In October 2011, my mother brought me as her date to the wedding of a girl who grew up in my neighborhood. Austin had gone to University of Delaware with the bride and groom and was in the wedding party. He was dancing with my mom and I, and we talked some but didn’t exchange numbers. The next day one of us Facebook friended the other and he sent me a message asking for my number. A few texts and a phone call later we had our first date set up.
How was your first date? For our first date, Austin took me to the ballet at the Kennedy Center, “The Great Gatsby”. I was a little hesitant at first, seemed like a big first date, but then found out a friend of his was a dancer with Washington Ballet and had given him tickets previously. We went with another couple, and I actually knew the girl from high school and her now husband was our officiant.
Tell us your proposal story. Austin knew I did not want a big public proposal. I had a good idea of when it was happening; he did not hide it very well. We had the fire pit going in the backyard and he got down on one knee and proposed. He had his sister come over and was taking pictures upstairs through the window. We went to celebrate at the Irish Inn In Glen Echo after with some family and friends.
