Katie and Josh- A Classic Summer Wedding

Katie and Josh’s beautiful summer wedding took place at the Washington Duke Inn. They chose the Inn because they wanted a venue that would be a retreat for their wedding weekend. With the Inn’s bar, restaurant, and golf course it was the perfect location!

Even though they chose a lot of classic wedding elements such as formal bridesmaids dresses and a white and soft pink wedding palette with gold accents, there were a lot of fun details! The men gave up formal dress shoes and opted for Jordans. There were custom koozies and an incredible dessert station with chocolate covered pretzels, mini cupcakes, and popcorn!

After a delicious dinner (which included BBQ with mac-n-cheese) and some hilarious toasts, it was time to rock it out with the always fabulous Joe Bunn of Joe Bunn DJ!

I hope you enjoy these images and get inspired for your own big day!
