We are swooning over this Fourth of July weekend wedding in Washington D.C. by Sarah Bradshaw Photography! The entire day is full of elegant black tie style. We love the lace details on the bride’s Watters gown; it’s so romantic! And her bridesmaids’ reactions to seeing her in her classic wedding look is priceless! Her well groomed groom wears a white dinner jacket with black pants and accessories – a truly dapper style. Beautiful blue details add contrast throughout the day, starting with the elegant wedding paper suite designed by the bride herself, Madeleine Frances! Blue hydrangeas weave the color throughout the day in details like the bridesmaid bouquets by Karen Kallmyer, the elegant centerpieces, and the wedding cake topper. Everything about this wedding exudes a classic elegance that’s sure to inspire. Enjoy!
