Today, we feel so blessed to show some love to the wedding of a Howerton+Wooten Events couple! Kristie and Andrew were married at the Carnegie Institution for Science in Washington, DC a couple of years ago, but we neglected to showcase their wedding day! (We are fixing that now!)
Andrew’s tuxedo was actually the same tuxedo worn by Kristie’s father on his wedding day. When Andrew tried it on, it was a perfect fit! The only change the groom had to make was making the “bell bottom” tuxedo pants a little more modern.
Kristie wore a strapless Hayley Paige Londyn Gown that she purchased at Lovely Bride in Georgetown. The gown had a silk, crossover bodice, a full, tulle skirt with horsehair flounces and a chapel train.
When you walked into Kristie and Andrew’s wedding, you felt completely at home. The couple assigned family members and friends to greet and welcome wedding guests upon their arrival at the Carnegie, and it truly set the tone for a warm environment. The music was humming familiar tunes, the laughter was light, and the children were plentiful.
Their wedding design was a delicate juxtaposition between modern and rustic. A classic color palette of navy, champagne and gold was used throughout the attire and décor — The wedding day flowers, created by Falls Flowers, featured succulents, pebbles, and Manzanita branches.
Kristie has a love for the written word – She used a unique font for her wedding day programs and signage, and she enlisted the hand-lettering skills of her new sister-in-law on her wedding invitations and escort cards.
Thank you for enjoying Kristie and Andrew’s wedding with us! Enjoy the holiday season!
Love & Soul Always, Kay
