September weddings usually have the best of summer weather coordinated with a hint of Autumn breeze. This was definitely the case when Jene and Vance got married on September 1, 2019 at the InterContinental Washington D.C. – the Wharf.

The couple met while working together at Howard University Hospital. Vance was a respiratory therapist that would frequently visit the NICU where Jene was a nurse. They worked together for about 2 years before Vance asked Jene on a date. 
Vance proposed after a anniversary dinner once they got back in the house. As soon as he got down on one knee Jene started crying and barely heard anything that Vance said.

“At the end of it, I remember him asking me would I marry him and my heart literally skipped a beat. I said yes! Without hesitation. I always wanted a private intimate proposal, with just the two of us, so this was perfect!” – Jene 

The wedding was elegant and romantic with gold and ivory accents, plenty of candles and blush and ivory flowers. The groom was dapper and the bride was an absolute vision. For 4 months Jene went to almost every dress shop in the DMV with her family and maid of honor in search of the perfect dress. She ended up finding “The Dress,” at Betsy Robinson Bridal in Baltimore. The dress designer is Martina Liana and it was a beautiful embellished lace, fit to flare dress.  We love that the bride decided to glam up her dressing room for the pre wedding photos. The Floral Guru did an amazing job with the bridal room decor and the couple’s photographer, Terri Baskin captured the entire wedding day flawlessly.

Congratulations to the couple and special thanks to Wedding Planner extraordinaire, Lola of MasterPlan Events for sharing this stunning wedding with our readers.
