History is a quiet guest, gently wedding the illumination of time to the present. Such ambiance made T & D's #guatemalawedding this week all the more memorable.

T & D's destination wedding in Antigua, Guatemala was a triumph thanks to @type_a_society @veronica_typeasociety. These ruins hosted the ceremony and set the scene for a truly breathtaking few days of events.

Did you see this stunning bride's wedding on @districtwedding? I adored this @oscardelarenta gown not only because it is beautiful, but because it seamlessly fit in with the mood of the venue. The Anderson House in DC is chic, opulent, and gilded with sublime European formal detailing; this dress spoke to that. I always recommend that brides consider the qualities of their venue as a point of reference for their dress, pre-conceived gown notions set aside. Breezy outdoor Napa vineyard? Formal NYC hotel? These same properties should apply to the dress for a cohesive overall design.
