Wanda and Josh met their match….on Match.com! Wanda envisioned an icy color palette of Tiffany blue, cobalt blue and grey for modern winter wedding. After what Wanda and Josh thought was the perfect venue fell through we found something even better, Lincoln Restaurant in DC. We created a wintery wonderland that combined Josh’s simple rustic taste with Wanda’s modern glam.
For the ceremony we kept décor simple, but brought the winter indoors with a glittery aisle runner that alluded to a blanket of snow. Edge Design created glittering branches that lined the aisle and dazzled with crystals hanging from the branches. Wanda and Josh left in a 1952 White Bentley for photo’s with the amazingly talented photographer, Abby Jiu.
Paying homage to one of America’s favorite presidents, Lincoln features a floor made completely of pennies (799,997 of them to be exact), the Emancipation Proclamation scrolled in lights across the back wall and an amazing mason jar chandelier. We enhanced the space with candles and simplistic florals. Metal snowflake drink picks, the mercury glass decanters of the hot chocolate station and the nod to their start with custom matchbooks were just a few of our favorite details. We decided to play off the venue’s eye-catching red doors by our own pops of red through the signature cocktail, aptly names the Gettysburg Address, and red velvet cake pops!
After a twinkling sparkler farewell Wanda and Josh left for a romantic horse and carriage ride around the White House, but our evening wasn’t over yet. We headed over to Hotel Palomar to set an intimate dinner for two in the couples wedding suite. Re-purposing the wedding flowers, candles and aisle runner we created an insanely romantic setting for Wanda and Josh to enjoy a little quite time as husband and wife.
We loved the unique touches of the daytime wedding and the super romantic idea of an intimate dinner for two after. Wanda and Josh could not have been a more perfect and wonderful couple to work with and we wish them a lifetime of happiness! Congrats on finding your Match!
