The details: Wedding of Elise Baran and Neil Canfield

Sunday, April 25, 2010

Elise Baran and Neil Canfield were married at Holy Trinity Catholic Church in Georgetown on April 10. After the ceremony, they held a reception at the Metropolitan Club of Washington.

Ambiance: Relaxed. Baran and Canfield wanted all their guests -- from college friends to grandparents -- to be comfortable. Multiflor provided vibrant flowers, including a violet bouquet for Baran.

Food: The Metropolitan Club set up three serving stations so guests could chose from meat, fish and chips, or tapas. The club also made the couple's wedding cake, which contained a chocolate truffle layer and a layer of citrus chiffon with vanilla cream filling.

Photographer: Andrew Reilly Photography.

Music: The local party band Sound Connection.

The dress: Baran found her cream, Grecian-style BCBG gown at Nordstrom. To personalize it, buttons from the bride's 95-year-old grandmother's wedding dress were attached to Baran's gown.

First dance song: "You Are the Best Thing," by Ray LaMontagne.
