Kaylyn’s Art Deco Wedding at DAR Constitution Hall in Washington, DC
Kaylyn knew she wanted an art deco theme for her wedding at DAR Constitution Hall. She wanted to incorporate interesting textures with possibly some herbs to add interest. She wanted a smaller, natural looking bouquet, and big luscious greenery for the centerpieces. The result was a green, garden party-esque vibe for a classic and glamorous 1920’s style wedding.
Kaylyn’s bouquet was a sweet posey that she could hold in one hand. I used astilbe, bouvardia, garden roses, standard roses, spray roses, Queen Anne’s Lace, and several kinds of greens (including olive leaves). Her bridesmaids carried similar, smaller versions of the bridal bouquet.
For the centerpieces, I used the biggest tropical leaves I could find. Included are palm leaves, banana leaves and jumbo monstera leaves. I loved creating these, and while they took a little bit longer for the set up process (all were built onsite), I think they were well worth the time!
To carry the theme of tropical greenery through to the sweetheart table, I used monstera leaves to create place mats and added a palm leaf for decoration.
I loved the olive leaf detail around each tier of this simple, all-white cake.
To reflect the groom’s heritage, Kaylyn asked me to create to flower garlands for their ceremony. I thought this was such a sweet touch and I know it meant a lot to both families.
All in all, this wedding felt like a really laid-back, yet elegant party. There were lots of great details that contributed to the art deco vibe of the night.
The bride and groom’s family had some great style! These two dads might’ve stolen the show!!
I also just loved Kate’s photography style. The couple took some amazing photos in Washington, DC and she just captured the architecture so well.
He dipped her and kissed her right in the street! I love that shot! Okay friends, here are a few more before we end this post. I’d like to thank Kate from Betty Clicker Photography for the gorgeous images!
