Black Tie Meridian House Wedding in Washington, DC

Jul 10, 2019

Tayler and Kunal were married in the iconic Linden Grove during their Meridian House wedding this summer in Washington, DC. Tayler looked absolutely flawless in her Oscar de la Renta wedding gown and Cinderella Jimmy Choos that were — literally — fit for a princess straight out of a Disney fairytale. And Kunal was nothing short of dapper himself, selecting a white dinner jacket to pair with his sharp tuxedo. Pair that with the talented ladies of Simply Hitched and show-stopping floral designs by Erica at Sophie Felts and there was simply no way this day could be anything but amazing. In fact, it’s one of my longest blog posts of the year as I just couldn’t narrow down what images I loved the most!

But all of the “pretty stuff” aside, at the core of this wedding day was a couple who couldn’t wait to spend the rest of their lives together. By some chance of fate, these two met on their first day of medical school at Brown University. Tayler even remembers texting her mom that she just met the man she was going to marry. And while friends may have teased Tayler that her tenacious spirit simply wouldn’t allow for any option, they did come to a crossroads in their relationship as they neared graduation. Recent medical graduates are placed, based on their specialty, at any one of the educational medical campuses across the country. Tayler could’ve ended up in DC while Kunal was in CA or any number of seemingly infinite combinations. So when Match Day came, they knew it could mean the end from them — years apart from one another makes a relationship nearly impossible when working around the clock in your first years of residency. Despite the most impossible odds, when they opened their red envelopes, they found that they would both be completing their residencies in New York City. It sends chills down my spine when I think how unlikely this was and it really makes me believe it was fate.

Now, go enjoy these BEAUTIFUL photos from their wedding at the Meridian House — it is, hands down, one of my favorites of the year!
