Now that the Fall wedding season is coming to an end, and the holidays are around the corner, I have been reminiscing of this beautiful winter wedding that Bright Occasions helped to plan for A&J at The Hay-Adams Hotel. The two actually tied the knot in an intimate elopement style wedding ceremony last Fall and then held a larger reception for family and friends to celebrate in a more relaxed and fun party. It was a super elegant and romantic evening for friends and family to come together and celebrate the marriage of these sweethearts. And of course, the iconic views of the White House and DC skyline are just two of the reasons we love The Hay-Adams. Here is part 1 of the highlights from A&J’s stunning wedding, photos by Laura Luis Photography and the full vendor list is below. We will be back next week with more from A&J’s reception.

We love a gorgeous bridal gown and fur stole for winter weddings. The bridal bouquet by B Floral Event Design was a perfect accessory.

Even on a cloudy day, the White House and Washington Monument offer an amazing view from the top of the The Hay-Adams. It is a perfect place to take portraits with your sweetie. Washington, DC Wedding Planner, The Hay-Adams Hotel, Bright Occasions, Laura Luis Photography

As guests arrived, they enjoyed cocktails and conversation overlooking the White House.
