Congratulations April & Lindsay!

Saturday, July 17th, 2010

::Post imported from our old website::

I had the pleasure of sharing my Memorial Day weekend with April and Lindsay as they got married in the beautiful Meridian Hill Park, which is just across the street from Josephine Butler Parks Center, where the reception was held.

April was glowing when she arrived at Josephine Butler to finish getting ready for the ceremony. She insisted on taking this picture with me and my little assistant (who is due to arrive any day now!). All of the awesome photographs were taken by Laurel Jensen of Laurel Jensen Photography.

And there is Lindsay getting on his boutonniere just downstairs. The feathers in all the personal flowers were a great touch. Bethany and Jeanne from Park Florist in Takoma Park, MD really did an amazing job with all the flowers.

April’s bouquet was absolutely gorgeous. Bethany and her team secured a hankie that was April’s Grandmother’s to the bouquet using an antique brooch that April had found. I loved the color scheme for all the arrangements. The colors were romantic, but very appropriate for the laid back feel that April wanted to achieve for her Memorial Day weekend nuptials.

The couple’s family and friends gathered in the park to witness the ceremony performed by A.C. Warden of Capital Ceremonies. A.C. did a great job customizing the ceremony to incorporate all the elements that were important to April and Lindsay.

As we all know, it was quite warm that Saturday, so the couple provided these really pretty parasols for their guests. This blue one really made for some cool pics! Aren’t these two cute!

The park really was a great backdrop for photos. These two are a perfect match and Laurel did a fabulous job capturing the special moments.

There are so many wonderful elements in this shot of the welcome/gift table. April had given the florist a bunch of old scarves, hankies, table cloths and pieces of fabric that she loved and Bethany from Park Florist used them throughout the venue. I love how this particular piece looked under this arrangement, which was contained in an old fashioned mason jar. But the best part is the picture of Lindsay’s grandparents who were married 66 years earlier on the exact same day!

Guests were asked to write a message to the couple and leave it in an old box. Special thanks to both of my assistants that day, Jasmine and Jenny, for helping with all of the set up.

Love this photo of the couple as they enter to join their guests and get the party started!

The reception space is perfect for smaller weddings. If you love a ton of natural light, this is the venue for you!

All of the centerpieces were slightly different and while it is a bit hard to see in this photograph, all of the tables had one of those unique pieces of fabric under the flowers.

Love the lace under this one! I also like the use of the silver julep cups for the centerpieces. The couple served mint juleps as one of their signature cocktails!

Josephine Butler also has this great terrace on the second floor just off the reception space, which is perfect for guests during cocktail hour and throughout the night.

Ok, let me just tell you how delicious the food was! As always, Peggy McGuire and the folks at Main Event Caterers did a superb job with all the details. They are always a pleasure to work with.

April and Lindsay didn’t have a traditional wedding cake. Instead, they decided to have some of their friends contribute homemade desserts of their choice.

The Capitol Building….made from white chocolate….yummmm!!!

The couple chose two pies from the selection to cut in front of their guests.

The couple supplemented the homemade desserts with some yummy cupcakes from Hello Cupcake! Each flavor was topped with a monogram. Main Event did a fantastic job with the dessert display.
