July 5th, 2012
Spending the holiday in the nation’s capital was anything but ordinary for me. It was my first time in Washington DC and I was excited to see how the city would not only spend their holiday, but how they live their daily lives. Of course I was inspired by the red, white, and blue and the classic monuments that peak out over the city’s skyline, but what I was most inspired from was the small boroughs tucked into the city.
I spent my 4th of July evening on a rooftop in a section of the city called Foggy Bottom. The old, brick and stone buildings were covered with green ivy and small purple flowers. Each building was lined by dark black cast iron gates. Of course my mind kept twirling around how inspiring these streets are for weddings and locations and even floral arrangements. Hopefully these pictures will bring some inspiration to all of our readers!
