If you count yourself an Audrey Hepburn, black & white loving, classics kind of girl…this one is for you. Think a beautiful reinvention of the traditional hotel affair with fresh, modern moments from the stationery to the blooms. Of course, we have Vicki Grafton to thank for all the moments captured, but this little taste is only the beginning. See it all right over here.


From Vicki Grafton PhotographyChristiane (Tiane to her friends and family) and David were both born and raised in the DC metro area. They met at Bishop O’Connell High School and have been together ever since. Since then they both graduated with degrees in Biology and Master’s degrees in Public Health and are both trying to to save the world one health problem at a time. Their fall wedding was classic, stylish and fun loving just like the two of them. Tiane wore an Oscar De La Renta gown with sparkly Jimmy Choo’s and David decked out in Ralph Lauren and Gucci. Tiane had her puppy Fefe with her during the getting ready portion of the day and even little Fefe had stylish pearls on.

The reception and flowers were kept classic and sophisticated with white orchids and calla lilies and just a subtle hint of pink in the uplighting, one of Tiane’s favorite colors. Since they’ve been together since high school their wedding party and families are great friends which resulted in a relaxed fun filled day of celebration including a packed dance floor with even Tiane’s stylish grandparents breaking it down. To end the event they sent paper lanterns into the sky finishing with a sparkler sendoff.
