Tim & Jennifer’s wedding last weekend at the St. Regis in Washington, D.C. was nothing short of spectacular! They are a super fun DC power couple (of opposing political views) that not only poked fun at their opposing political parties, but made it the theme of their wedding day. After all, if you can’t poke fun a things that could be hard in your relationship, I think we really can’t stand the test of time. Most people would see this as something that could be a hot point, but they respect each other’s difference and love each other for it. I really appreciate that! They say opposites attract, right? Well, I don’t entirely think they’re opposites in every sense, but I surely do agree that we can’t be exactly alike in a marriage, or things get boring! Robby and I have many parts of our relationship and personalities that make us opposite…and many things that make us the very same. We are the same in the types of cars (older, more ‘vintage’ muscle cars) and music (rock, classic country) we like, but when it comes to certain foods, we couldn’t be further from agreeing. But, this push back is what makes us not only re-think the way we do things and the things we like, but also helps us to see & respect something in the other person that we ourselves aren’t. My opinion is that a good marriage has to have those push-backs. How would we get into good, deep conversations — how would we have passion, if we agree 100% on everything? Here are a few sneak peek shots of their wedding, termed the ‘Limrotti Wedding’ — a combo of their last names, Lim & Pierotti! Their hashtag on Instagram is #limrotti2015 if you want to see more guest shots!
I can’t wait to share the professional shots with you from their photographer, but until then, here are some Instagram ones! :)
That FLOWER WALL! OH MAN! AHH! The awesome babes & fellow floral design friends over at Sweet Root Village were so kind as to send me their list of floral design assistants. It’s so awesome to be friends with other designers and not let competition win in relationships. They sent me some AMAZING gals that helped me get this flower wall up and covered in those lovely blooms ;)
Look at that 48′ long floral piece, all in gold boxes! It was magical!
