If you’ve visited the nation’s capital, you know that Washington D.C. and glamor can sometimes go hand and hand. All manner of famous people visit the White House, royalty, posh diplomats, the city doesn’t lack for a little glitz.
But you aren’t ready for the easy glamor of Elly and Tyler’s Washington D.C. wedding at the Daughters of the American Revolution’s Constitution Hall.
Three words: Full. Length. Gloves.
But, before that, comes Elly and Tyler’s love story.
Together 6 years by the time they got engaged, and nearly 8 by the time they were married, Elly and Tyler’s relationship all started with a work romance. The couple met at Clyde’s, where they were both tending bar and living their best lives in DC.
Well, that little work romance turned into the beginning of a grand adventure. Elly and Tyler filled their storybook with travel, tacos, and a sweet nugget named Chai, who is the most photogenic Australian Shepherd around, according to her loving parents.
As a dog owner, I can confirm every dog is the best dog.
When it came to planning their wedding, Elly and Tyler knew that above all else, they wanted to embody that same sense of adventure, flair, and FUN that they valued in their lives, while still planning a sophisticated event worthy of a downtown D.C. wedding.
Enter the Constitution Hall at the Daughters of the American Revolution!
This space is such a special mixture of stately elegance with a lot of history and fun quirkiness around every corner. The aesthetic in this place is one part Grand Ole Opry, (it housed the National Symphony for 4 decades!), one part founding fathers, and another part elegant event venue.
Of course, it never hurts that you can go out right onto the terrace and see the Washington Monument up close and personal, which is exactly where the couple said their I do’s. If that’s not a winning backdrop, I don’t know what is.
I think my favorite part was the bride and groom greeting their guests from an opera balcony like great patrons of the arts. That’s definitely a core memory!
Constitutional Hall was such a unique space, and Elly and Tyler made it even more special with their stunning style and presence.
And now we can return to the gloves. Elbow-length white gloves for a bride that was just the classiest. Elly styled her gown with different accessories for each portion of the day.
The satin gloves graced their first looks, a romantic veil was a traditional ceremony piece, and the bride topped it off with the chicest organza bridal top that changed the whole look of her wedding dress for their first dance.
From toasts in the library, to a moonlit night under a national monument, Elly and Tyler’s wedding at Constitution Hall was such a fun and memorable experience for everyone who came together to celebrate.
