Brigid and Andy hosted a rustic yet refined estate wedding at the exquisite Meridian House in Washington, DC. Despite inclement weather forcing a last-minute change from a garden ceremony, the green, blue and slate intimate indoor affair boasted an air of quiet elegance.

The couple incorporated their mutual love for Washington into their wedding by naming each table after a different DC neighborhood.
A statement floral arrangement decorated the simple escort card table.
Slate table runners with matching napkins and simple stemware added a refined touch to the elegant tablescapes.
The couple thanked guests with delicate treats from their favorite macaron shop.
A green vine pattern and a crown of fresh flowers decorated the three tier American buttercream cake.
The couple selected a variety of low arrangements for their centerpieces to ensure that guests had an easy time interacting around the long rectangular tables.
Selecting and designing paper products was one of the highlights of the wedding planning process for Brigid, who decided on a stately medallion lace letterpress motif.
Brigid paired her vintage-inspired cushion-cut solitaire Tiffany engagement ring with a matching delicate diamond band.
Garden roses, peonies, freesia, snowball viburnum and dusty miller filled Brigid's ribbon-wrapped bouquet.
The groomsmen wore French lavender boutonnieres with accents of green hypericum berries and fern while Andy wore a white garden rose with matching pops of berries.
The couple originally planned on an outdoor garden ceremony but ended up preferring the intimate feel of their relocated nuptials.
Clusters of garden roses, hydrangeas and dusty miller hung from the chiavari chairs flanking the indoor aisle.
