Newseum Post-Elopement Celebration

Newseum, Washington, DC

Highlights. After our clients eloped by themselves in Maine, they threw a party in Washington, DC to celebrate with their friends and family. We had a blast planning and designing this celebration. We didn’t even call it a wedding (since there was no ceremony).

Our couple wanted a warm feel with elements inspired by nature, mixed with rich jewel tone colors and a splash of Indian inspired motifs to honor the bride’s heritage in the event design. With two rooms, one room became a more relaxing lounge space while the other had a more upbeat feel with a focus on the bar and the dance floor. Variety was the name of the game when it came to the food and beverage options. At the bar, guests could choose from 4 signature cocktails, 5 craft beers, 2 scotches, in addition to standard beverage options. They served a delicious selection of passed hors d’oeuvres and desserts, as well as savory stations.
