Classic National Cathedral Wedding

Katie and Ryan’s classic National Cathedral wedding embodied everything I love about pretty city weddings in the district; elegant, timeless and full of beautiful, thoughtful details. This stunning wedding was grand and elegant, held at the Washington National Cathedral with a reception to follow at the Army Navy Country Club. To offset the traditional venues, the bride chose modern irises and orchids; to keep the design fresh and the perfect nod to the wintry season around the corner. The wedding design was thoughtfully created with a neutral palette of white, gray, greens and black accents, using the bride’s background as an interior designer to pull inspiration from. Katie wore an asymmetrical Monique Lhuillier gown and veil and her groom, Ryan wore a custom white tuxedo jacket, with Jimmy Choo loafers. The bridesmaids wore Amsale gowns in black, and the groomsmen escorted them in classic black tuxes. After the ceremony, the bride and groom were whisked away in a classic car for their first ride as husband and wife, on the way to their reception of dinner and dancing. The bride and groom’s favorite detail of the day were the bourbon favors, hand-calligraphed by Allison R. Banks Designs and hand-tied by the Bride’s mom.
