Charlotte and Dave’s Glen Echo Park Wedding, MD

Charlotte and Dave got married at Glen Echo Park on one of the hottest days the DC area had this July. A day so hot we moved their first dance up by an hour so Charlotte could change out of her dress earlier than expected to cool off! We made sure plenty of water was on-hand, the fans were blowing, and the thunderstorm threatening to hit us miraculously never did (but made for an awesome lightning show!).

I worked with them as a Month-Of Coordinator – Charlotte’s family had experienced some tough times recently and she wanted someone there the day-of to help lessen the stress and make it run smoothly so she and all the family and friends could truly enjoy the day. It was such a pleasure working with them – and seeing all their fantastic (and colorful) elements come together for a joyous day was just plain awesome.

Charlotte and Dave really embraced their venue. Colorful lanterns were hung in the Bumper Car Pavilion, streamers and balloons were attached near the ceremony site, and her florist, Laura Francis from Floral Presentations, was amazing. They created whimsical ceremony decor (their baby’s breath maypoles are SO cute) and creative and playful reception arrangements -including a super-tasty cotton-candy inspired arrangement!

      Hey Bree. I know, I loved the bold colors! Isn’t the backdrop great? She DIYed that with help from friends and family. Super cool.
