A Purple Art Deco Wedding at The Carlyle Club in Alexandria, VA

While they were first dating, Kyle surprised Lauren with an invite to a dinner and dancing event at a restaurant called The Carlyle Club. It was a memorable night for them and the event space with its deco wallpaper, purple lighting and the large ballroom (complete with a roomy dance floor) made it a natural choice for their wedding reception years later. With the venue as their guide, they decided to use a vintage glam art deco theme. Kyle (a designer) created all the paper elements and Lauren focused in on the guest experience by ensuring transportation and creating welcome bags complete with items that were favorites of the couple’s grandparents.
