Ruffled: French Inspired Wedding in Washington, DC

Dec 12, 2016

A few months ago, I shared some images that I captured earlier this year from a black-tie Washington, DC wedding with a Modern French flair. As I mentioned, every time I’m in the city, I always feel DC has a french air about itself. No, it’s absolutely not the same as being in Paris, but it might just be the closest you can get on this side of the pond (I’ve always wanted to be cool enough to say  that!). This shoot had perfect details to bring home that French feeling; everything from satin Kate Spade heels and tulle dress to a hand-painted background and ornate cake with gold gilding reminiscent of that at Versailles. It was truly the epitome of classic and is still one of the prettiest shoots I’ve been a part of to date! As excited as I was to share it with my readers (hi!), I also knew I wanted to find the perfect fit to share it with an even larger audience. After all, those perfect details I mentioned above? Those were the results of so many talented vendors who deserved for their work to be shared with the masses!! 

Ashley, the super sweet editor over at Ruffled thought this shoot was the perfect fit for her amazing blog and I was beyond ecstatic when she accepted it on their calendar! The feature shares all of my favorite images from the day — but don’t just take my word on it, head over to Ruffled directly to see the full feature here

This gorgeous Washington, DC wedding has a Modern French Theme complete with a soft blue and cream palette. It is featured on the prestigious blog, Ruffled.

As always, ending this post with lots of love for the talent that created this shoot! I might be biased, but I think DC is filled with some of the most innovative creatives in the entire industry and it’s an honor to get to live here and work with them on a regular basis!
