Charcoal gray slim cut suit along with a skinny tie and onyx pocket square. His look was complete with a custom Scarlet Lapel Windflower with a British Tan Leather Button handcrafted by Brooched Square.
The bride's wedding bouquet: Velvety bunch of ivory ranunculus, blush peonies, dark cranberry carnations, and gray berries with a touch of dusty miller.
The wedding venue,  SqWires was selected because  for this inspirational shoot because, it embodied the Urban Whimsy theme. The concrete floors, exposed brick, and perfect lighting was sublime. Nestled in the heart of the historic, yet lively neighborhood of Lafayette Square, it provided a more than perfect location for this shoot
The “All We Need Is Love” graffiti photo backdrop to incorporate the cranberry and the typography found in the colorful graffiti throughout the city.
The graffiti wall is awesome as an extra detail to an urban setting wedding, but why not include your guests in the action?!  Using clothing friendly markers have guests sign your graffiti wall – now your photo backdrop has doubled as a your wedding guestbook! Designed by Build A Wedding
The dessert table was stacked with a yummy assortment from everything to homemade chocolate chip cookies to sweet potato pie. Vintage pie plates and cake stands were used to dollop in the eclecticism once more. Old books were stacked and rich florals provided the “Wow!” effect.
Everything from the sprigs of bright red berries to the electric blue apothecary bottles were naturally incorporated in the shoot. The distressed wood of the farmhouse table provided an excellent canvass for this late summer tablescape.
The geometric design and vibrant plates pulled in all of the color hues stunningly. The bright red Jonathan apples coupled well with the pops of cranberry and antiqued gold candlesticks.
A touch of eclecticism was added to the head table by adding a different chair at each place setting. For the lovely couple, they  incorporated two large mustard chairs at their setting. For a final touch of sweetness, mini lemon pies were added to each plate and dressed with bright red and dark purple berry sprigs.

The obvious favorites were the Kool-Aid Bar and DIY Graffiti Wall. The super fun Kool-Aid Bar took us back to our childhood. Glass mason jars, black and white striped paper straws, and cuts of watermelon slid onto the glass provided inspiration for the additions.
During cocktail hour you could servie Kool-Aid Rum Punch. You can find t he recipe here:
Plump blackberries, juicy orange slices, and frozen red grapes sealed the deal right after we included a handful of pretty little sugar cubes into the vintage topaz colored dishes.
