Real Weddings: Lauren + Brian

In my six years of being a planner, I had yet to have a January wedding until this year.  My team and I had the pleasure of working with Lauren and Brian as the law student and solider planned their winter nuptials. Lauren and Brian’s red and ivory themed wedding was picture perfect; Even the weather was gorgeous for January in DC. Our bride and groom chose some of DC’s best vendors to ensure that their wedding day was flawless. The team at Well Dunn Catering and one of our favorite venues, National Museum of Women in the Arts, went above and beyond for our clients and their guests. The first dance was made extra special as the bride’s brother sang their first dance song. The dance floor was never empty as Chris Laich did an amazing job keeping the party jumping and the guests enjoyed taking candid photos in a photobooth. Lauren and Brian’s guests took home original hand crafted scarves from a village in Cambodia and scrumptious brownie pops. And we all know no wedding is complete without wedding cake! As always, Fluffy Thoughts created a gorgeous (and just as delicious) three tiered pumpkin and chocolate raspberry cake.  Special thank you to the amazingly talent Michael Bonfigli for the images below.
