Jean & Philip were married in a rooftop wedding ceremony at the Line Hotel in Washington, DC
Before guests began arriving in the foyer of the hotel prior to the ceremony, our luxurious couple took a moment for themselves to get a first look in the stairwell leading to the rooftop ceremony of the hotel. Philip was happily surprised to see his gorgeous bride with lush full curls, a low V-neck dress and the smile he knew he could no longer live without.
The rooftop ceremony provided a skyline view of the surrounding neighborhood and cityscape. In keeping with her style and aesthetic, Jean requested drapes for the rooftop ceremony site with flowy white satin accented with market lighting and a center chandelier to draw everyone’s eye to the magic below.
Once the rooftop ceremony was completed, our couple took a stroll down the street hand-in-hand to soak it all in and announce to the city they were now officially husband and wife. To help his blushing bride down the street, Philip boldly carried her calla lily and rose bouquet as Jean managed her dress.
Dinner was served at the heart of the hotel tower in the Carina Venue. Filled with natural light from the skylights above, guests were able to find their seats at the long rectangular tables that filled the room and showcased Jean’s eye for detail. Low lying centerpieces flowed from one table to another
The cream roses accented the slate linens all while allowing the hypericum berries to stand out amidst the trail of greenery.
All catering at the Line Hotel is done by the in-house culinary team. James Beard Award-nominated Chef Erik Bruner-Yang left no guests feeling hungry with a perfect three course meal. The first course started with baked, buttery smoked rockfish on toast with fresh dill and capers. The main course was plated with guests selecting their choice of blackened fish and heritage grits or braised beef short ribs with buttermilk mashed potatoes. Finally, Pastry Chef Tiffany completed the meal with a custom designed cake tower of donut bites.
Perched atop a rustic bench, the photographer took detailed shots of the day’s luxe jewelry collection. The same cream-colored roses that lined the reception tables were delicately placed in Jean’s bouquet to bring life to the soft pink and off white roses for a complete look. From crown to toe, Jean sparkled with delicate pearls at her ears and a pair of Badgley Mischka open toe shoes to complete the look.
Philip took a moment to return to the rooftop wedding site for a moment with his groomsmen. Hands in pockets just like “the old days” when they would hang out and talk about who would see their wedding day first, Philip shared his disbelief not believing he would be the first one!
Jean would be delighted as the rest of her wedding party joined her on the rooftop for evening photos and revelry. Everyone was relaxed and enjoying the beautiful weather. The kiss that Jean and Philip shared in front of the Line Hotel was all the proof the couple needed to know that their wedding team had done the job they expected and more.
Before the sunset and the day came to a magnificent conclusion, Jean & Philip shared one last kiss on the terrace rooftop of the Line Hotel while toasting to their future together.
Cheers to the future, the love, and the success of the new Mr. & Mrs. Roehrenbeck.
