White Dinner Jacket, Exotic Bride and Impeccable Details – A 007 Washington DC Wedding
I could sum up this wedding by describing it as a 007 (James Bond) wedding and you could imagine the rest, but where is the fun in that.
Form their engagement photo session in the Library of Congress in Washington, D.C. and around the Capital to their Washington D.C. wedding at the Trump National Golf Club, Washington, D.C., it was nothing short of Elegance, Sophistication and Love. Every detail was thoughtfully planned out from where they were getting ready in a townhome a short walk through a wooded path to the ceremony site to the elegant cake and table settings, it was a classic wedding in the making.
As I walked in to meet up with Shakila (the bride) the morning of the wedding she looked like an exotic Bond girl with long curly jet black hair in a white furry cuffed semi-transparent robe with matching furry toe banded high heeled shoes. She didn’t seem nervous but ready to get married. I said my hellos, talked about what we were going to do first and then went to meet up with Sam (the groom). He was an equal match for her, with black hair, athletic build, confident smile and a white tux dinner jacket to complete his unmistakable 007 look.
Their Washington D.C. Wedding ceremony site was on top of a water fall overlooking the beautifully groomed Trump National Golf Club with a gold mirrored walking path for the processional and recessional.
After the ceremony and family and bridal party photos, we went inside for the reception filled with a night of elegance, dancing, love and just a little craziness. From the choreographed dance to the heart felt speeches, the tiered cake, flowered wall stage and rocking DJ, this wedding did it right. James Bond said it best…
