A few favorite chic details:
Passion, thy name was Lauren & Erik’s wedding. Wow, you two! We’re pretty sure we hadn’t heard that much um, encouragement, from friends and family during a first dance before, and it was awesome! You know of course how well the day started out, despite the little accidents (Lola?), recalcitrant boutonnieres, and missing shoes, but it all worked out in the end as Lauren, you elegantly walked with your dad down the aisle atop the Newseum’s rooftop deck overlooking the nation’s Capitol on one of the most beautiful days we’ve had this Spring. It was hard holding our cameras steady and not laughing along with as you read your personally written vows to each other during your ceremony yet somehow we managed. Later that evening, the sun settled in behind the sheerest of clouds, as if to put a celestial stamp of approval on your vows.
The decor on your cocktail hour’s terrace as well as inside was so you. Hot pink accents everywhere it should be, along with a cake topper with a couple high-fiving it. And, Eric, we loved that you included a sour candy bar (so that others could join in on your candy obsession) and a cigar bar. Priceless. And how apropos was it when you took a ribbon of sour candy ribbon between your mouths, 101 Dalmations-style, slowly devouring it until your lips met, and again to much laughter and applause. Everything was so bright and fun, just like the two of you. We love that you didn’t stop smiling all day. Your cheeks must have hurt at the end of the night!
You had such an energetic and passionate cheering section, of family and friends, it was immediately evident you two were so meant for each other and every single person in attendance that day agreed. Congratulations, you both, and thank you so much for including us in your celebration! We had so much fun and are so excited to share your photos with you!
