Tons of color, an adorable dog, and an awesome Georgetown venue make this industrial chic wedding one that you won’t want to miss! An eclectic style was the perfect option for Anne and Ross’s wedding. Janice of Bellwether Events helped them incorporate their love for animals and a bit of whimsy into the chic Georgetown Ritz Carlton, and Jessica Schmitt Photography was there to capture it all!
From the groom, Ross:
“Most of the wedding style came from Anne’s mind. She had an overall vision from the get-go and between her and Janice of Bellwether Events and Lauren of the Ritz-Carlton, we were able to achieve it. We really wanted something that looked summery and clean, with some individual touches of us to make everyone smile. We loved the look of the Ritz and how it is very upscale but still has an industrial look, and we wanted to use that to complement our style. Thus we had the strings of lights to add a little something extra fun, the silver card holder animals to reflect us, and the mercury glass table numbers and vases/mason jars to complement the industrial look of the room.”
“We love Georgetown, and the Ritz, while in Georgetown, is tucked away just enough so that you aren’t bombarded with the busyness of M Street. We both fell in love with the look of the hotel and especially the Fahrenheit Ballroom. It has a very upscale and clean look, with an amazing industrial feel. We also needed a place that allowed dogs as Bridgett was going to be staying with us and be in the wedding. Finally, we wanted a place where we could do everything on site (rooms, ceremony, cocktail hours, and reception).”
“My favorite moment from the day was watching Anne and Bridgett walk down the aisle. Bridgett is our little girl and Bridgett does what Bridgett wants, so we were very nervous about how she would perform. She was AMAZING, and knowing how important it was for Anne to walk with Bridgett was so special.”
“We loved everything about our wedding! Everything we made and planned looked great and happened! The ombre poms on the aisles, the string quartet playing pop music at the cocktail hour, the arbor, the string lights, the linens we chose, the flowers, the DJ killing it, our clothes, the candy bar, the mercury glass table numbers, the Bridgett Piñata, the vegan cake and cookies, and the silver animal escort card holders all came out as planned and were unforgettable!”
As a dog lover myself, I just love that they incorporated their dog into the wedding ceremony! That’s something that I definitely would do differently for my own wedding. In the same token, how fun were the animals at each table and with the escort cards?! LOVE that!
Are you going to be incorporating your pet into your own wedding at all? What’s your plan?
