The award for the most nonstop fun wedding last year goes to Celina and Matt and their fall Hotel Washington wedding! Their stunning wedding was filled with beauty, love and laughter, and awesome dance moves from the newlyweds to friends and family! Their wedding was a proud celebration of their Filipino culture, with thoughtful details throughout their special day. From Celina’s one-of-a-kind wedding dress designed by a Filipina dressmaker to Matt’s stylish barong, everyone was dancing along to Todo Todo by the end of the night.

Celina and Matt’s elegant details were further elevated by their unique neutral color scheme and pops of color through family memorabilia, including Celina’s grandmother’s rosary. Their Filipino wedding ceremony took place at St. Thomas More Catholic Church. The intimate ceremony included the traditional veil, cord and coins ceremony which symbolizes unity, humility and prosperity. The ceremony also included a blessing to Mother Mary which provided a quiet moment for the couple to reflect on this new journey.

After the ceremony, the couple and their wedding party took stunning photos at St. Thomas More Cathedral as well as Hotel Washington. We love all the design elements of the day and Celina had a clear and unique vision for her flowers, provided by Chanda Nak design. After cocktails and dinner, everyone was ready to hit the dance floor and party at Hotel Washington. The night ended with a beautiful cake and dancing the night away!
