From Bash... The client came to me with less than 3 months before their wedding. The couple wanted the evening to feel like a dinner party for their guests, and that's exactly what we did!
Cocktails took place on the overlook next to the bridge. Guests circulated from here to the lumber shed, where the aerial artist hung from and performed. The couple joined in cocktails. After, everyone moved to the foot of the bridge while the bride processed towards them from the opposite end.
After the ceremony, everyone moved below the bridge to two long rectangular tables. Here, a seven course tasting menu was served ending with a micro bride and groom's cake for each guest. The menu was created by the couple's good friend, Chef RJ Cooper, of DC's Rogue 24. The groom's immediate family sang acapella during the meal and a champagne bar stayed open during this time. After dinner, a DJ took over and spun late night.
The Yards Park is an outdoor venue next to Nationals Stadium in SE DC. We were their first wedding as the venue only recently opened. The decor and flowers were inspired by outdoor patio spaces in Restoration Hardware catalogs. Each table had its own mini succulent garden and overhead hung varied lanterns that we dimmed as the went on.
