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. See all the gorgeous photos below captured by Sheaulee Ng Photography!

Escort cards are extremely easy to personalize and an excellent way to bring in your wedding day colors -- from calligraphed seating cards set atop a textured linen to apples tagged with each guest's name or small personalized bundles of lavender tied off with string. Other ways to display escort cards: Pin them to a clothesline, post them on a board covered in color-coordinated ribbon, or incorporate them into your cocktail hour using personalized stirrers tagged with guests' names.
