We at Simply Breathe Events are over the moon to bring you along on a journey through Erin and Seth’s stunning summer wedding at the Intercontinental Wharf in DC. In our world, we believe weddings should be just as fun as they are beautiful, and this celebration was no exception. It was a day drenched in sunlight, love, and a stylish flair that only Erin and Seth could inspire. We infused every moment with our signature blend of modern elegance and heartfelt romance, meticulously tailoring each detail to echo their unique story and vibrant personalities. So, grab a cup of your favorite drink, settle in, and let’s revel in the magic of this gorgeous day together!
The day began with anticipation and excitement, as Erin and Seth prepared for their walk down the aisle. Lisa Blume’s team captured the intimate moments of Erin getting ready, surrounded by her loved ones. These are always some of our favorite photos! The atmosphere was filled with laughter and joy, setting the tone for the day. Seth, in a separate room, shared laughs and last-minute advice with his groomsmen.
We love a father daughter first look! It was so sweet when Erin’s father saw her in her wedding dress for the first time. The emotion in his eyes spoke volumes, reflecting a mix of pride, joy, and a sweet sentiment. This heartfelt first look with her father was a reminder of the profound familial bonds and the new journey Erin was about to embark on. We couldn’t be more excited!
Next came the much-awaited first look between Erin and Seth. We are a big fan of a first look over here, as it allows your wedding day timeline to flow more effortlessly. Set against the backdrop of the Wharf’s stunning scenery, Erin and Seth’s first look moment was nothing short of magical. The couple shared private whispers and laughter, a beautiful testament to their bond, perfectly captured in photographs.
Following their first look, Erin and Seth (along with their photo & video team) explored the picturesque surroundings of the Wharf, capturing their love amidst the vibrant summer backdrop. Then, it was time for the wedding to begin!
The décor at the Waterside Ballroom was a vision in shades of blue, accented by the modern contrast of the bridesmaids in floor-length black dresses. We included an open-air arch, adorned with beautiful blue florals, which framed the couple effortlessly during their vows along white fabric aisle runner for a classic touch. We will let the photos speak for themselves, but we like to think it anchored the overall design with its elegance!
After the ceremony, as the golden hues of the setting sun painted the sky, Erin and Seth, now officially united as husband and wife, stepped outside for their post-ceremony portraits. With their wedding at Intercontinental Wharf providing a stunning backdrop, their photographers skillfully captured the essence of their love (together with their family and friends!) in each frame.
As the ceremony concluded, we went to WORK to seamlessly transition the space into a summer-themed affair! Guests were welcomed into a world where modern chic met romantic summer vibes. The highlight of the evening was Erin’s second outfit later in the evening – a striking white skort mini set paired with sneakers and adorable pearl heart-shaped sunglasses. Her entrance was a showstopper, perfectly encapsulating the fun and fearless essence of their wedding.
The reception was filled with heartwarming speeches, laughter, and dancing. Our team ensured every detail, from the table settings to the lighting, complemented the night’s theme, creating an unforgettable experience for Erin, Seth, and their guests!
