Napa, meet D.C – D.C meet Napa. What a lovely duo! This couple’s desire to bring the charming Napa feel to their contemporary D.C venue resulted in a gorgeous blend of rustic meets modern thanks to the coordination of A. Dominick Events and stunning floral design of Beehive Events. So fresh and so clean, the full gallery of images from The Happy Couple is oh so inspiring for those out there looking to shake things up a bit in their wedding design.
From Danielle of A. Dominick Events…As avid wine drinkers, Margot and Jon originally wanted their wedding to be in beautiful California’s wine country. Yet, as they started to consider the logistics surrounding the big day, they couple realized that they really needed to celebrate in the bride’s hometown of D.C. With only four months until to plan, our A. Dominick Events team worked to capture the vision of Margot and Jon to create what we began to call an “urban barn”, incorporating the look of Napa in the modern space of the Halcyon House. The venue serves as sculptor John Dreyfuss’s home and studio and is an amazing contemporary spot in the heart of historic Georgetown. With communal farm tables and bistro lights, set with soft yellows and grays in the concrete studio space, the space felt perfectly modern yet rustic.
The bride and groom walked through the busy streets of Georgetown from the Ritz-Carlton Georgetown to the Halcyon House to the ceremony and reception. The custom built escort card board made of corks from bottles of wine that the couple enjoyed together and this artwork is now displayed in the bride and groom’s new Upper West Side NYC apartment! The rosemary tucked into the napkin at each place setting and serving as remembrance as well as a nod to the bride’s famiy’s home on Rosemary Street. In lieu of cake, guests were offered famous momofuku cookies with milk. At the end of the night, as guests departed, they were handed a packaged cookie to go and a welcomed late night treat! When the bride’s father gave his welcome toast, Mr. Lowenstein presented a Washington Capital’s jersey to the groom, Jon. The number 36 designated the date of March 6 (3-6). Although the avid Philadelphia Flyers fans in the crowd were NOT happy, the wise groom sported the jersey for the rest of the night!
