A Brunch inspired Washington wedding shoot with vibrant red accents and an air of urban decadence

Today I am thrilled to share a Brunch inspired Washington wedding shoot with vibrant red accents and an air of urban decadence.

Images were captured by Jenna Leigh Wedding Photography with design by Eclectic Fete and the collaboration of a fabulous creative team.

Washington, DC, a home of history and half-smokes, go-go and government, brunch and bounce beats!!

The people, the music, the culture, the cuisine—DC literally has it all! Washington, DC is the melting pot of the world, but there’s NOTHING like being a native!

This shoot was designed to honour the local culture of DC through the lens of the Black native Washingtonian experience.


The design aesthetic for the Washington wedding shoot is urban decadence — tattoos showing, lock tight, swag on 1,000—we are going full blown grit, graffiti, and glam.

Our featured model couple is DC royalty: Beat Ya Feet legend John “Crazy Legz” Pearson and his gorgeous wife Danyelle.

And the shoot colours are about as DC as you can get: red and white, the colours of the DC flag.

To bring a bold insight into the day the stationery suite was created by Fingers In Ink.

Our beautiful Bride looks fierce wearing a stunning gown by House of BellaChic with bridal accessories by OAK Bridal Accessories.

Her gorgeous hairstyle was created by Hair by Terriya with make up by Embrace Makeup Artistry.

Her stylish Groom compliments her in a white tux by the Miguel Wilson Collection.

Hitched 360 was there to officiate the I Dos with Levi Stephens Music playing guitar in celebration

DC Rental and Pretty Little Wedding Co provided rentals for the incredible tablescape in monochrome tones with vibrant red accents.

Vibrant florals for both the bridal bouquet and tablescape were designed by Rocking Bird Flower with spectacular impact.

To complete the styling an array of sweet treats was created by both Tiered And Petite and Two Sweet LLC with catering by Effie’s Catering & Special Events.


As DC is equal parts street art, historical architecture, and museum exhibits, we took a modern approach to sourcing the featured venues for this shoot.

And since brunch is LIFE and incredible food and beverage is essential to any Washingtonian lifestyle, we put a luxe spin on some local favourite dishes, both savoury and sweet.

A native Washingtonian is full of LIFE and culture, and we wanted to translate that zeal for city living through the scenes captured within the shoot.
