Intimate and Elegant Wedding - Pollen and Pastry Washington D.C. Wedding

Richard and Jenny’s wedding was the epitome of class and simplicity, done the right way. Keep scrolling and you’ll see exactly what we mean.


Richard proposed to Jenny in the exact spot where they first met- right outside the Petworth metro station in Washington DC. So it was only fitting that their wedding would likewise be full of sentimental details.


The pair described their wedding vision as being “unique, classy, and elegant” and if these two are anything other than classy, we don’t know what is!

As requested, Jenny and her bridesmaid’s bouquets were full of forest green textures and just the right amount of color: a simple splash of deep cabernet, accompanied by some burgundy and the lighter hues of seeded eucalyptus. We love how well the greens paired with those lovely burgundy dresses!

Richard and Jenny’s reception was equally lovely and simple in every way. We arranged a statement garland to be displayed over the mantle, serving doubly as the ceremony altar and reception backdrop.


Check out these hand-lettered table numbers by the bride’s sister, surrounded by our very own hand-tied garland and bud vase centerpieces. This type of table arrangement is so ideal for the bride or groom who wants something elegant, yet simple.


This greenery-filled staircase is one of our favorite pieces we have ever had the pleasure of styling. The old, natural beauty of this venue simply took our breath away!

Richard and Jenny, thank you for inviting us to be a part of your wedding day. Best wishes to you both!

Huge thanks to Shawnee Custalow for such striking photography!
