For Sarah and Seye’s special day at the Washington City Club, clothing was a high priority. Despite opting for a brunch wedding, guests were encouraged to dress up to the nines to celebrate the occasion. Describing their wedding theme as a “creative black tie,” the couple said they wanted guests to attract bright but sophisticated ensembles. Both Sarah and Seye followed suit, with Sarah wearing a sleek Meghan-Markle-inspired dress (and bouquet) and Seye wearing a white and black tuxedo with leopard print shoes. The couple’s photographer, Jennie Raff says both Sarah and Seye are known for their fashionable style, adding that “only Sarah could make us all show up in black ties on a Saturday afternoon.”
Sarah and Seye opted for a brunch reception along with their chic dress code for their late September wedding. A menu from crab eggs benedict and flank steak was served with a vanilla and chocolate cake for dessert, which Sarah describes as “simple, but delicious”. They even pampered the guests with a chocolate bar buffet, which also served as a party gift. Check out her fashionable brunch wedding below to see more of her big day.
