With postponed weddings and missed inspiration trips to Europe this year, we've been researching all of the gorgeous spots in the US that can provide a similar look and feel - and Anderson House provides all of this, right in downtown Washington, DC. Completed in 1905, the mansion's many ornate rooms, gilded filigree, and impressive antique collection transports us to the Gilded Age and sets an impressive and luxurious scene.
The fashion in this intimate wedding inspiration ranges from traditional to modern, from lace to feathers, and from Vera Wang to Monique Lhuillier to Oscar De La Renta.
Inspired by the chic city bride who appreciates tradition and heirlooms, we styled and sourced the finest vintage diamond engagement rings and featured a handmade paper suite with luxe gold foil calligraphy. With the textural yet fluttering fashion elements in mind, the cake incorporated the movement of delicate rice paper, with lace sugar applique and intricate bas relief texture.
The table design is the epitome of luxury, with gold metallic linen, multiple candelabras, lush neutral florals, and exquisite gold tabletop selections from Maison de Carine. After such an elegant celebration, what better dress to change into than the most whimsical, feather-covered Oscar de la Renta creation, with a high-low hem, and feather-detailed heels to match. Feathers fluttering in the warm breeze after a champagne toast with cake - the perfect intimate wedding day indeed.View All Images
