Daniella + Kevin | The Goldfarb Winter Wedding

When Daniella reached out to us about her vision for her wedding day, we were so excited especially after we visited her venue - a hidden gem in Washington, DC called St. Francis Hall. 

St. Francis Hall is a charming facility adjacent to the beautiful Franciscan Monastery in the quiet Brookland neighborhood of northeast Washington, DC that was perfect to hold the ceremony, cocktail hour, and reception all in one place.

Daniella came over to our studio to share her vision of a winter wedding at St. Francis Hall and after sharing a cup of coffee and putting together a few mood boards, Daniella settled on an elegant vision that matched her navy and gold theme. 

A few weeks before the wedding, we scoped out the venue and we were excited for the natural lighting coming through as well as all the space and high ceiling we could work with:

The three of us collaborated with their catering company to provide Eiffel Tower vases, candles, lighting, and even the backdrop to add an extra touch of elegance to their already beautiful wedding. 

Theirs was such a beautiful and meaningful ceremony, but of all the moments they had, this is where we started tearing up a bit ...
