Eliza + Don: A Pretty Pink Peony Wedding By Eli Turner
Posted by Kate. Filed under Real Weddings

Happy Monday, PW readers! It’s a little drizzly here in DC, but you know what they say about April showers. And since it is almost May, we thought we’d go ahead and fulfill the rest of that idiom with some pretty pink flowers! Eliza and Don’s Meridian House wedding was largely inspired by the lovely peony. “They really brought a smile to the bride’s face,” says Bash event coordinator Terri Eaves, “and most of the details were planned with them in mind.” Scroll through for highlights from their 1940’s-esque affair, all captured beautifully by Eli Turner Studios, then visit the full gallery for even more romantic details.

The couple exchanged vows outdoors underneath a simple floral altar. We love the way the blooms in the lush garden backdrop perfectly compliment the blushing bridesmaids!

After a garden cocktail hour, guests moved inside for a sit-down dinner at both long and short tables. The fresh pink floral centerpieces were designed by Growing Wild Floral and included garden roses and even more peonies. The beautiful toasts to the couple were a highlight of the reception.  “No one, not even a planner, could have planned for such well-prepared speeches,” says Eaves. “The members of the bridal party and families who spoke brought nearly everyone to tears.”

Thanks again to Eli Turner and Bash for sharing Eliza and Don’s amazing day with us! If you like this wedding, you should also check out Meagan and David’s romantic in blush Wisconsin affair and Elizabeth and Dan’s cherry blossom-inspired wedding.
