The first time I visited the Intercontinental Wharf in DC, I fell in love. Being a part of Audrey and Todd’s intimate wedding at this incredible waterfront location left me speechless and more in love... with venues that are exquisitely thoughtful in their design; full of clean lines and modern finishes, with couples that know exactly what they want and know how to bring out the best in each other and with #urpcouples that celebrate by playing 90s hip-hop at their reception all. night. long.
I could have photographed Audrey getting ready in the corner bridal suite ALL DAY. She had such gorgeous taste in her bridal details and they complimented the venue so well; gold, cream and the lightest hint of blush wedding spirit garden roses, cafe au lait dahlias and eucalyptus intertwined along the top of the flower framed chuppah and all throughout her incredible bouquet by B Floral Event Design.
Enjoy some of my favorite early favorites of Audrey + Todd’s Intercontinental DC Wharf Wedding from this weekend!!
Their ketubah was made by Ink with Intent and was absolutely incredible! It was an intricate, minimalist fine art paper cut design made out of one sheet of laser cut paper. At this moment, one of Audrey’s good friends and witnesses to the ketubah signing with Rabbi Evan Krame of The Jewish Studio, made a joke about how she signs her name and the whole room erupted into laughter… it was such a fun way to officially mark the beginning of their marriage.
The talis shown forming the top of their chuppah, was used by Audrey’s parents when they got married and both of the couple’s parents have now been married over 30+ years…
loved working with this talented professional team!
Living in one of the most picturesque neighborhoods in DC, when Audrey suggested taking their engagement photos on Capitol Hill among all of the beautifully painted brick rowhouses, I knew we were in for a treat. Add in blooming cherry blossoms, magnolias and tree-lined streets with brick sidewalks, it was so much fun exploring the neighborhood with these two!
Audrey wore an adorable little black dress with a scalloped edge neckline (that I absolutely loved btw) and nude-colored heels that weren’t the easiest thing to stroll around the neighborhood in, so she brought a pair of flat sandals. Highly recommend this method to all future #urpbrides - no need to sacrifice fashion for function if you don’t mind carrying a pair of comfy flats and slipping in and out of them as we stop for great spots… ;) it was a hot April afternoon but you’d never know it while looking at these cozy moments together!
Your September wedding at the Intercontinental Wharf along the waterfront in DC is going to be incredible! With an elegant, simple and contemporary design to their event spaces and a neutral color palette to accentuate views of the Potomac River, I can not wait to see it all unfold and capture your love story among close family and friends from both coasts!
