Danielle and Doug’s elegant wedding at the Fairmont DC Hotel was one for the books! Not only did the couple get married on an auspicious day (Feb. 29th) Leap Year, but they were the last wedding we did before COVID shut everything down! Talk about good timing!
They pulled off their Beauty and the Beast theme so exquisitely, that you would ever know it was a Disney-inspired theme if it were not for the “Tale as Old as Time” sign! Their black tie affair with pops of rich red roses set the tone for their elegant ballroom wedding. And the bride’s modern ballgown with a sexy thigh-slit was a showstopper!
Danielle and Doug met in NYC at a bar on the Upper East Side in January of 2017. The night they met, they stayed at the bar for more than 5 hours (on a random weeknight, both having work the next day!). Talk about a great conversation! Needless to say, they both knew they had found something and someone special that night. And D&D have been inseparable ever since that day, eventually moving from NYC together to the D.C. area.
As a couple, Danielle and Doug love entertaining. They often get together with family and friends for dinner parties, game nights, or any reason they can think of to gather people for a good time. Danielle is more of the “planner” type-A bride we adore working with, and Doug is the go-with-the flow kind of guy. Together, they definitely balance each other very well.
We loved being a part of this very fun and very social couple’s big day! And we’re so thrilled to share photos of their wedding by the very talented Kir Tuber! Enjoy!
