Classic Beauty in Washington D.C. by Abby Jiu Photography
Posted by Kate. Filed under Real Weddings

Melanie and Mohsin’s D.C. wedding is a true dose of classic beauty.  The couple met while attending law school at the University of Richmond, and now, working as attorneys, they reside in Northern Virginia. Marrying just across the street from the White House at The Hay-Adams, the couple used their adoration of the city as inspiration.  Without further ado, dive into this post of exquisite photos by Abby Jiu Photography.  

Those bridal portraits are absolutely breathtaking, no?  Melanie wore a soft and romantic Rivini gown, and adorned her look with a fur bolero and embellished veil.  A crimson bridal bouquet of dahlias and garden roses by Sidra Forman radiated rich autumn colors.  The fall foliage was at its peak, and Lafayette Park was the  perfect backdrop for photos. The ceremony took place at 11:30 in the morning and was followed by a brunch reception complete with a jazz band.

With the capitol as their inspiration, a city skyline element was brought into the programs and table décor.  They couldn’t resist tying the law in somehow, so each of their tables was named after a Supreme Court justice!  Simply Chic Events implemented the classic palette of red and ivory with black accents with fresh style, and Abby Jiu captured it naturally and beautifully.

After an afternoon of music and great food,  the celebration continued into the evening with a party at The Hamilton.  The couple was sent off in style, with Melanie changing into a darling Kate Spade frock.

Wishing these two all the beauty and happiness in the world!
