A Classic Yellow Wedding at Bethesda Marriott in Bethesda, Maryland
Memorial Chapel at the University of Maryland was the perfect venue for Britni Cunningham (23 and a teacher) and James Kirker's (23 and an engineer) wedding. Britni and James are Terrapins, and Britni used to be a campus tour guide. Plus, Britni's graduation was at Memorial Chapel. "It was an easy decision to book the campus chapel," she says. "It's gorgeous and meaningful." As a nod to Britni's love of all things Disney, she and James chose a palette inspired by "Beauty and the Beast" for their summer wedding. "Our main flowers were yellow roses, inspired by Belle's awesome ball gown," Britni says. These yellow roses made up the bridal party's bouquets, which also included white hydrangeas and white freesias. The bright yellow flowers were also incorporated into James's boutonniere. Britni designed all the wedding stationery, which included a pretty yellow rose motif to tie into the wedding theme. To contrast with all the yellow details, Britni chose cobalt blue dresses (that matched the Beast's suit) for her bridesmaids. After a bubble recessional at the chapel, Britni, James and their guests headed to the Bethesda Marriott in Bethesda, Maryland, for the reception, where they danced to music provided by Crow Entertainment and feasted on a delicious butter rum cake. Joy Michelle Photography was there to capture all the pretty details.
