When a wedding planner gets hitched, you know the results are going to be extraordinary. From the candlelit ceremony to the violet and ‘hot lady pink’ color palette, Jennifer and Jamie’s glam ballroom celebration at the Four Seasons in D.C.  was filled with details that spelled modern romance.  Almost two hundred guests traveled from twenty three states to see them say ‘I do’, and they kicked off the party with glasses of pomegranate seed-garnished prosecco at the ceremony. Ace photographer Michelle Lindsay documented the fuchsia luxury with vibrancy and clarity—we can practically feel the excitement radiating off these images!

Despite living on the same street in Arlington, VA, hectic schedules kept the bride and groom from a typical courtship. She’s an event planner, and he’s a surgeon, so they got to know each other over pre-work Starbucks dates and late night walks with Jennifer’s dog Bentley. A year into the relationship, Jamie proposed in San Francisco. He had a gorgeous engagement ring for her—and a blinged-out collar for Bentley!

The couple opted for a large, party-style celebration in the city where they fell in love: Washington, DC. They married at a luxe hotel in the historic Georgetown neighborhood, and streamlined the reception to involve as few breaks from music and dancing as possible. As an event planner, Jennifer loves the drama of colored lighting, and worked with A2Z Music Factory to turn the Four Seasons ballroom the perfect shade of pink. Another favorite detail of the bride’s: the textured rosette table linens, which felt as luxurious as they looked.
