Pops of navy, red and champagne accented their classic downtown DC wedding this March at the St. Regis Hotel. Making their celebration a family affair, Desiree & Donnie were married by her Uncle and had their immediate family members toast them with a unique and special “Wine Ceremony.” Throughout the planning process and wedding day, it was evident how much Desiree & Donnie truly love each other and enjoy making each other happy. Before the ceremony, the Groom surprised his Bride with a gorgeous diamond bracelet and sincere note.
Desiree wore sparkling blue wedding shoes and changed from her traditional veil into a birdcage veil with a pop of red for the reception. Their specially made cake topper was a “bobble head” depicting Desiree & Donnie on their wedding day. Guests enjoyed artfully displayed miniature desserts, late night snacks and specialty beverages from the Cordial Bar. The blue up-lit lounge area under the enclosed tent provided a relaxing respite from the dance floor. Cheers to the happy couple, Desiree & Donnie. A special “thank you” to their Photographer, Josh Gooden.
