Happy new year! While it’s been a minute since we’ve shared a new blog post, we’ve been busy working with some amazing clients. But it’s a new year and my personal goal is to share more of our work on our blog and not just via Instagram/Social Media. This post for Alexandra and Mark is long overdue, we love this couple and everything about their English garden style wedding at the St. Regis in Washington, DC. Liz Fogarty captured the day perfectly and this wedding has also been featured on Carats and Cake.
Alexandra and Mark were married the fall of 2019 at the St. Regis in Washington, DC. It was an elegant wedding with all the English garden vibes, as a nod to their engagement in London as well as Alexandra’s heritage (her parents are originally from England). Their ceremony was held outside on the beautiful St. Regis terrace, while dinner was held in the ballroom. Personal touches were woven throughout the day, such as incorporating a garden rose called “peachy keen” (for the bride’s last name, Keen), a sparkling pink raspberry lemonade from Mark’s latin heritage and custom cookies in their welcome gifts to reflect Alexandra and Mark’s passion, ballet and running. Vibrant colors were paired with fall hues for a truly stunning color combination of shades of pink, peach, burgundy, cream, navy, greenery, and gold. From the personal flowers to ceremony arch and reception centerpieces, this wedding was full of lush blooms. The bride wore a ballgown fit for a princess by Kelly Faetanini with a custom cathedral length veil. After cocktail hour, guests enjoyed a 4 course meal at the St. Regis. And during the dancing portion of the evening, Alexandra’s best friends and ballet peers surprised guests with a flash mob that was such a fun moment. At the end of the evening we sent off the couple with a sparkler exit.
Congrats again to Alexandra and Mark! We loved working with them for their English garden wedding at the St. Regis in Washington, DC last November. And thanks again to Liz Fogarty Photography and the entire creative team for making it a wonderful wedding!
