Trend Alert: Carnival Themes!


We recently had a couple who wed at an ‘amusement park-turned-national park.’  Glen Echo in suburban Washington, DC is quickly becoming a hot spot for weddings and rightly so!  Photos by Documentary Associates:

Another one of our couples decided to hit the county fair and play up the carnival theme.  Photos by Kate Headley:

We’re also seeing balloons everywhere!  This photo isn’t from one of our events but it’s at the same park.  It certainly fits the trend.  Photo credited to Justine Ungaro:

What do you think about this carnival theme?  Fun & cute or strange & faddish?

    I love the Carnival theme! I think it is the thought of cotton candy favors that makes me want to get married all over again. Love the pictures!
