This rad pop-up wedding had glitter, sequins, and huge rainbow mural LOVE

We wanted something small that fit us, but could also include our children and family. We didn't want to just run off to the courthouse. We wanted it to be simple and stress-free. We bounced ideas of locations back and forth. Maggie from Pop! Wed Co. suggested the "LOVE" mural at Blagden Alley. We were in DC for New Years so we checked it out and fell in love with it.
