Eclectic Winter Wedding in Old Town Alexandria, VA

Tara and Gabe were married on a blistering cold day last November at The Athenaeum in Old Town Alexandria, Virginia. Sarah Park Events and her discerning eye for design helped bring life and warmth into the bare gallery space - creating the intimate dinner party feeling Tara and Gabe were passionate about providing for their guests. The florals included deep red peonies, ranunculus, roses and even mini apples and artichokes, ferns, and magnolia foliage. A 10 foot moss wall adorned with strands of hand-threaded blooms and an over-sized LOVE marquee served as a backdrop for the live band.
