DC Couple Elopes to San Rafael’s St. Vincent’s Catholic Church to Wed

This beautiful couple traveled from their home in Washington, D.C. to get married in San Rafael’s stunning St. Vincent’s Church. Run Away With Me, a wedding planning company that specializes in elopements, organized this classic event. Black and gold accents stood out next to the gentle blush-colored bridesmaids dresses, and the groomsmen’s black and white bow-ties looked quite dapper next to the ranunculus boutonnieres.

After a traditional Catholic mass wedding ceremony, guests found their way to their tables by finding their name on a campaign button which also had the name of a world leader. The tables were named after those world leaders — how clever is that?!?!  And would you look at that wedding cake? SIX SEVEN (I had to go back and count them!) tiers of delicious cake covered in handmade and hand painted fondant rope! I wish I could refer every bride to this baker, but it was made by the bride’s cousin who gifted the cake to them.

The couple’s first dance was equally beautiful. The day was perfect in every single way, and I wish the lovely couple a lifetime of perfect happiness.
