This chic summer Dumbarton House wedding combines purple and fuscia florals with modern details. Inspired by a European garden bursting with wisteria, hanging flowers and beaded chandeliers create an intimate space for dinner in the courtyard. Occasions Caterers served a delicious meal specifically designed by the groom, and Fluffy Thoughts’s modern garden inspired wedding cake was a show-stopper. From invitations to menu cards to the dance floor, the couple incorporated their personalized monogram from Emily Baird throughout the wedding day. Black plates added modern flair against the wood farmhouse tables. Candlelight added softness and warmth to the courtyard space. All the details come together to create a romantic meets modern vibe that exceeded the couples expectations as they celebrate their love with friends and family.
Holly Chapple perfectly hung greenery and florals on the open air Sugar Plum tent, and Amelia Johnson captured the magic and emotion of the day. Thanks to Washingtonian for publishing this summer wedding at the Dumbarton House, and to Dina & Jake for entrusting us with your most special day. It’s truly an honor to have been your wedding planner.
