Maggie & Brian | City Tavern Club Wedding

July 7, 2014

You know that feeling you get when Sinatra’s crooning voice comes pouring through your speakers? Instantly, you are transformed to another time and place, when life was a bit slower, attention was paid to detail, and everything was just a bit more elegant. It’s the type of music that  sets the tune at fine restaurants and romantic movies. Maggie & Brian’s wedding day was the live version of this feeling, elegance incarnate.

There is something to be said about the sophisticated ambiance of a city wedding, something I had never really experienced until Maggie & Brian’s wedding day (No offense to my beloved RVA, but city weddings here just don’t compare to DC). From the attire choices, to the setting on M Street in Georgetown at the City Tavern Club, to the live band that played at the reception. Maggie & Brian are the epitome of class, and their wedding day was not only a reflection of their style, but more-so of the love they share for one another, a love that permeates their lives and is shared abundantly throughout their families and friends.
