Just popping in after a fun evening at Top of the Town in Arlington with Sheila and Kevin, the new Mr and Mrs McBride!
Such a classy and elegant evening spent with a view to remember. When Sheila first reached out to me, she let me know this was a very intimate affair and it would be all about family, not just them. Family is such an important aspect and when a couple tells me that family is their focus for the day, I know we’re going to get on splendidly.
Sheila and Kevin actually live out in Colorado, but Sheila’s family lived here in the DC area, so they decided to keep it simple for her mama and hold the wedding in Arlington.
We’d discussed also trying the quintessential Top of the Town nighttime shot with the Mall in the backdrop, the spotlight on the new couple. We had only a short time after the ceremony before Sheila and Kevin wanted to head back into spend time with their families.
Sheila chose favors that spoke of her and Kevin’s spirits; rocks with positive messages and words painted on with beautiful decorations like mountains and trees.
Top of the Town is an amazing venue. It is all about that DC view! We had a taste for it in the day time during their ceremony, and of course at night time when they had their reception and dancing. Just to keep it extra classy, they had an amazing Sinatra-like singer filling the dance floor with songs from our favorite jazz artists.
