Tai and Calvin welcomed guests to their shimmering, sophisticated fête at the Carnegie Institute of Science in Washington DC with handwritten notes of love and gratitude for each person, including the children, tucked into envelopes that doubled as escort cards.
And just like those notes, their love story continued to unfold throughout the night—each magic-filled moment more stunning than the last. Completely captivated by the wedding cake, created by Fluffy Thoughts, suspended mid-air atop a waterfall of crystal beads during the cocktail reception, guests were ushered into a blush and gold haven for dinner.
Once seated, the menu cards shared something even more beautiful than the luxe floral centerpieces above them. As their love story goes, the couple took a romantic getaway to Napa six months into their relationship. Unbeknownst to Tai, Calvin began purchasing wine from one of their favorite wineries there soon after they returned, knowing one day soon after his traveling and tasting companion would be his wife. Two years later, their wedding guests enjoyed every sip at dinner during their wedding reception. It’s those little love details that wedding dreams are made of.
