A Rustic, Romantic Wedding at Carlyle House Historic Park in Alexandria, Virginia
Angie Caro (35 and a HR director) and Chris Walker (32 and a global procurement manager) wanted their wedding to be light and romantic, which they felt was perfectly represented of their personalities. "We wanted the wedding to feel more like a big party than a formal event," Angie explains. Pale pink, yellow and coral flowers filled the bouquets and centerpieces, adding to the light feeling of the decor and feel of the wedding. Angie wore a fitted gown with a keyhole back from J. Crew, while Chris wore a light, linen suit. Since the couple didn't have a wedding party, Angie's two stepdaughters walked Chris down the aisle wearing tulle skirts and flower crowns. The ceremony was held outdoors, in the garden, with Angie's friends Bill and Matt playing acoustic guitar and guests dining on sliders and a dessert bar.
