April wedding in Capitol Hill

Kelsey and Kyle were married in April at Pravda Studios in the artsy neighborhood of Capitol Hill. They were such fun to work with, always with a smile and air of excitement about their wedding day. I first met Kelsey and Kyle when I helped with her bridesmaid Erin's wedding last summer and was thrilled when she asked me to take part in hers. From that point on we had a blast making plans and catching up over coffee, cocktails or at her house with her adorable and hyper dog. They are a perfect match for one another and I look forward to keeping in touch over the years.

Pravda was the perfect urban setting mixed with a natural feel with large windows and rustic wood floors, a blank canvas that was transformed with a chic color palate of black, white and green. Details included a bountiful cake buffet with fresh berries, all white delicate peony bouquets for Kelsey and the girls, intricate invitation and stationary design, a funky floral pattern linen and the comfy yet sophisticated soft seating area that Bella Rugosa created and guests enjoyed throughout the evening.

Ever talented husband and wife photography team, Photo Elan, did an amazing job capturing the day. Here are some favorites...
