Our stylish spring DC wedding at The Fairmont Hotel for Becky and Harry was recently featured on one of our favorite DC wedding blogs, District Weddings. Their wedding included a romantic ceremony and elegant dinner with one of the biggest dance parties we’ve seem. Becky and Harry were such a sweet couple, we loved getting to know them and their entire wedding party. It was wonderful to work with Becky and Harry on their event design and wedding coordination. We loved working with Deb Lindsey Photography and the entire team of wedding professionals who helped create a wonderful celebration (see the full list of wedding professionals below).

While gold and silver have long been the go-to wedding metallic, rose gold has become a great option and there are so many beautiful rose gold wedding inspiration ideas. Rose gold is a softer shade and adds a romantic and feminine touch to the wedding. It is perfect for an accessory (think shoes, jewelry, bouquet or boutonniere ribbon) or as part of the overall wedding color palette. You can try mixing rose gold with lighter muted colors, such as blush or gray, but it also works with deeper colors such as navy or marsala. Rose gold is beautiful as the only metallic, but also pairs well with either gold or silver accents. We love working with clients in the DC area to plan their wedding, including thinking about the overall design and style. Today we are sharing 10 of our favorite ways to incorporate rose gold wedding inspiration:

Previously this week we shared highlights from Carey & Robert’s wedding and we are back with more from their W Hotel, Washington, DC wedding ceremony and reception. Carey and Robert chose a modern style for their wedding with a dramatic colorful ombre ceremony aisle and head table, along with a color palette of black, white and gold. Black linens and drapery set the tone for a dramatic space that let the white, gold and colorful flowers really pop. We love working with couples to plan creative and stylish weddings in the Washington, DC region. Everything was perfectly captured by DuHon Photography (see the full DC wedding vendor list below). Here is more from this stunning W Hotel, Washington, DC wedding ceremony and reception.
This W Hotel, Washington, DC summer modern wedding oozes sophistication and fun, we loved working with Carey and Robert for their DC wedding last summer! The W Hotel is a such a great hotel with a central location and great views of the Washington Monument. Carey and Robert chose to do host their wedding at the W Hotel because it really fit their overall style. It was such a pleasure to work with Carey and Robert! Their vision for an elegant, modern and creative Washington, DC wedding, also fits with the types of weddings we love to plan. To start their wedding day, Carey and Robert got ready with their wedding party members at W Hotel and chose to do photos on-site at the hotel. They had a ceremony that blended both their religious backgrounds, followed by cocktails dinner and dancing. Everything was perfectly captured by DuHon Photography (see the full DC wedding vendor list below).
