Behind the scenes



Rooftop Wedding in the Heart of Washington, D.C.

We are overjoyed to share with you some photos from Attiya and Mike’s D.C. wedding. Attiya told us that she always had imagined getting married on the Mall–she hadn’t a clear idea of how dress would look like, or whom the spouse would be–she just knew she wanted the Mall. Attiya’s parents hosted a large and formal Pakistani wedding, so the couple decided to do a small, simple cocktail-style wedding surrounded only by their closest ones the day after. They made sure that almost every aspect of their Big Day was local and personal. Overall, they wanted something their children could look at one day and love. Their day was most certainly classic, elegant and simply D.C. and we are so grateful to have been a part of it!
