DAR Wedding | Jewish Wedding Ceremony
I’m so in love with these wedding photos. Stephen Bobb did such a great job capturing this gorgeous couple and their beautiful wedding day. L & J got married at the Daughters of the American Revolution in Washington DC – but beforehand, they took some great portraits at Constitution Gardens (which is happily just a few blocks from DAR!)
I’ve worked at DAR a number of times, please check out one of my past weddings there: a colorful wedding with reception in the Library. And come back later this month, I’ll be posting another DAR real wedding.
Check out this awesome wedding invitation suite. L’s mom designed it herself! I am obsessed with that modern DC monument collage for the envelope liner! And the font choices were on point too.
Per usual, LynnVale really nailed the florals for this wedding. We were going for a purple palette that featured some champagne and nude hues as well. Luckily it was dahlia season! Oh how I love dahlia season!
This wedding was the first weekend in October. We knew we wanted to serve pre-cermeony drinks as guests arrived, but we weren’t sure what the weather would be like! Luckily, Occasions Caterers was so flexible with us, and we were able to make the switch from cool lemonade to warm cider just a few days before the wedding day!
If you want a sunset ceremony, you should actually start your ceremony 30 minutes before the sunset is scheduled to take place. This is called the “golden hour” by wedding photographers and it looks like this!
I learned early on that L had a sweet and sassy grandma. And L wanted her to play a special role in the ceremony. I immediately suggest she be the flower girl. And if you think a tiny tot can steal the spotlight as a flower girl, you’ve never seen a beaming, proud-as-can-be grandma as the flower girl!
