Whitney and Rob met the “old fashioned way,” through friends. They actually met at his birthday party! After a number exchange that night the two agreed to meet up for their first date. Rob took Whitney to dinner at the Army Navy Club followed by The Lion King at the Kennedy Center. The two were chatting up a storm, so much so that they were late to the show and didn’t even finish their bottle of wine. We’d say that is a pretty fabulous first date.
For their jewel toned wedding at the St. Regis, Whitney and Rob wanted an “elegant but fun party!” They loved the opulence of the decor at this DC wedding venue and we couldn’t agree more. They paired is perfectly with their rich color palette. With a mix of tall floral centerpieces and runners dripping in candles, their elegant vibe certainly was achieved. And based on those dance floor photos, we think they nailed the party part as well. And don’t miss the bride’s amazing second dress for dancing! We are living for those sleeves! Thank you to Rose Gold Events for sharing this beautiful, fun DC wedding with us today.
Tell us your engagement story. Rob proposed on a gorgeous private beach in Nicaragua with a picnic lunch. I went for a walk along the beach and he followed behind me a few minutes later. I didn’t realize he had followed me. When I reached some large rocks on the end of the cove, he was there when I turned around and proposed.
