This past November we had the pleasure of spending the day with Abby and Rob as their day-of-coordinator, in addition to providing their flowers. It was so wonderful seeing their vision come to life, and helping them enjoy the day stress-free! They were such a happy couple, and so fun to work with! From the matching bridesmaids bathrobes right down to the shoes, Abby didn’t miss an adorable detail. The gorgeous Hotel Monaco and surrounding Chinatown/Penn Quarter neighborhood served as backdrops for their photo shoot prior to the ceremony.
Abby’s loose and unstructured bouquet featured white tulips, stock and ranunculus, peach garden roses, and blue thistle accented with deep blue privet berry, dusty miller and seeded eucalyptus foliage for a wintery style. Rob’s boutonniere matched his bride’s bouquet, featuring white ranunculus and seeded eucalyptus.
Historic St. Margaret’s Episcopal Church in Dupont Circle was the setting for their touching and celebratory ceremony. We love the gorgeous woodwork in this church!!
The placecard table arrangement introduced a touch of modern design to the otherwise loose and garden-style flowers, pairing floating candles with simple arrangements of white hydrangea and roses. Very fitting for the contemporary aesthetic of the hotel!
For the reception, flowers matched the bride’s bouquet, combining whites and ivory tones with touches of deep blue, pale pink and sage, evocative of a winter garden. Thistle and privet berries, along with the silvery dusty miller really add that wintery touch.
And we love the tiny fondant dog peeking out of their cake. He was styled to look just like Abby and Rob’s dog!
But hands down, the our favorite part of the wedding was when George Washington, one of the mascots from our hometown baseball team, The Nationals, made a surprise appearance! He took photos with the guests, danced and generally rocked out. Such a fun wedding! Thank you Abby and Rob, for letting us be a part of your special day!
