Erin+Ben | Married | Georgetown Ritz Carlton

How do I sum up Ben and Erin’s absolutely gorgeous late-July wedding in Georgetown? Hot day, warm hearts, cool details. This laid-back couple celebrated their red-hot love with a combination of delicate lace, cool gray, smooth lavender, and sparkling diamonds that added the type of elegance to the day usually only found in a Cary Grant film.

The ceremony — held at the National Presbyterian Church in Washington D.C. — showcased the pair and their attendants beautifully under its high vaulted ceiling. The multi-colored stained glass windows that framed the group admitted brilliant afternoon sunlight that blended into splashes of purple against the church walls that matched the bridesmaids’ dresses perfectly.

The floral arrangements by Sue Prutton of White Magnolia Designs were just jaw-dropping.  And she deserves all the credit in the world for keeping them fresh and beautiful on a day when the heat index was nearing 120 degrees. Her blend of pink and white roses, lavender, and verdant green leaves gave the bouquets, boutonnieres, and centerpieces an effortless, summery feel. I’m madly in love with the way fresh berries and grasses were incorporated.  Sue is also responsible for the sweet lavender bunches adorning the mouthwatering cake provided by the Ritz.

Ben and Erin opened their reception at the Ritz-Carlton Georgetown with their first dance – to Van Morrison’s Someone Like You. And, while the day was perfect in so many ways, as the song goes, “the best is yet to come.”
