Beth and Scott, a physician assistant and international business consultant, were set up by mutual friends after graduating from college and moving to Washington, D.C. A few years later, they didn’t look too far when planning their Labor Day weekend wedding—returning to Chevy Chase, Maryland, where Beth grew up. Their August 31, 2014, nuptials, which took place at Woodend Sanctuary, were just one portion of the weekend’s celebration, which kicked off with an intimate casual dinner at the bride’s parents’ home, a bridesmaids’ luncheon, rehearsal dinner aboard a riverboat with views of the nation’s capital, a party at a bar the night before the wedding, and an unplanned football game, ultimately culminating with the wedding and all its revelry.
The 155 guests joined the bride and groom at the indoor-outdoor event space, which is part of the Audubon Society and boasts historic charm. It all came together with a common thread of spring green, navy blue, and Champagne with a classic and slightly preppy style throughout. “I wanted friends and family to feel like they were at an upscale garden party,” Beth says. “And it felt like a very intimate wedding while also seeming like a big family dinner gathering.”
