A little over a month ago, we were asked to partner with an amazing team of vendors to put on a surprise wedding for a couple who was originally set to get married with a large 400 person celebration! Due to COVID-19, this sweet couple had to postpone, but along with The Knot, Angelica & Co. Weddings, Kir Tuben Photography, and Springvale Floral, we were able to give them a beautiful celebration alongside their closest family and friends. This 15 person micro wedding included an intimate ceremony at the DC War Memorial followed by a beautiful backyard reception at the couple’s home in Washington, DC. Along the way, they stopped for photos in front of some of the city’s most iconic architecture, and even sported face masks custom embroidered with their wedding date for some of the pics! While the day wasn’t what they had originally planned, this duo went with the flow, shifted their wedding plans, and embraced a more intimate micro wedding fitting for the times! Family and friends who weren’t able to attend were able to enjoy both the ceremony and reception through Zoom, making their special day even more meaningful.

Upon arriving to their reception, the couple was surprised with the most amazing floral installation. The talented team at Springvale Floral completely decked out the space in front of their DC row house, and the result was the perfect spot for a photo op. Following family photos, the couple shared champagne served on our Rhys Brass Bar Cart and made their first toast as newlyweds!

One long table was set up in the couple’s backyard along with a sweetheart table for the bride and groom. The tables were topped off with our Bloomington 23k Gold Rimmed China, mixed vintage flatware, and vintage glassware. Layered rugs helped to dress up the space, and guests enjoyed an intimate family style reception that was so fitting for this couple’s special day!
