Monica and Steve were married this past May at the National Women in the Art’s Museum. Monica wore a structured Anne Barge gown that is absolutely to die for, and Steve stunned in a classic black tuxedo. The groomsmen attire followed the groom while the bridesmaids sported floor length light grey gowns to compliment. The pair chose not to do a first look, which made the ceremony all that much more special.
The reception, beautifully designed by Margo of Bright Occasions, wowed us! The florals were lush seasonal blooms of mostly white and blush, with touches of grey foliage and greenery. They kept the tables neutral with an ivory striped textured linen, which made the rose gold chargers really pop, and also coordinated well with the rose gold striped invitations. Platinum rimmed glassware and champagne chiavari chairs kept things more fresh and modern with mixed metals. And the petite cake brought in a textural element that went well with the stationery and linens. A highlight was when Steve and his band took the stage for a few songs, while Monica and guests danced and sang along.
