A beautiful afternoon enhanced sunshine and the magic of love– that’s your first thought when looking over Elaine and Gil’s chic wedding. The couple chose Washington, DC for their venue. What could be a better backdrop than the National Monument and the Capitol Building? You can tell it was a day filled with smiles and a night filled with dancing.
Elaine’s strapless mermaid dress with accented waistline fit her like a glove. It looked modern with a statement necklace and bright red lips. Who doesn’t love the way a beautiful white wedding gown looks paired with a handsome groom in a classic black tuxedo? A beautiful bouquet pale purple roses and eggplant colored calla lilies accented with a thick white ribbon continued the modern and elegant theme.
Guests gathered under a tent on a rooftop which lit up at night while dinner and dancing took place. The decor included comfortable white couches and chairs, dotted with purple pillows to stay on theme, and classic table settings featured crystal glasses and simple hydrangea bouquets in vases.
