Shannon and Philip’s Wedding Day

We would like to express our thanks to Shannon, Phillip, their wonderful family and friends making this day so filled with laughter, love and warmth. Dacor Bacon house truly was a perfect setting for Shannon and Phillip’s elegant, fall wedding.

The Dacor Bacon house built in 1825, was home to several supreme court justices, Governor of Maryland Samuel Sprigg and in the 1900’s, Chief Justice Melville Weston Fuller. Today the Bacon House is still decorated with the beautiful fine art of the Bacon Family.  Few historic homes in DC retain the personal warmth and sense of family that this home has.

Our special thanks to Marilyn Patterson of Joyous Events and to the staff of the Main Event for making this absolutely incredible day so much fun, so beautiful and so flawless.

Stacey & Rob’s Wedding Day

We would like to express our thanks to Stacey, Rob, their family and friends for an absolutely beautiful day.

One of the most priceless experiences of a wedding day is the joy of seeing four generations of a family celebrate, from the littlest flower girls bouncing on the bed in the morning, to a beloved grandma, joyfully dancing the evening away.  This was Stacey and Rob’s beautiful day.

St. Matthews and the Mayflower are the two most romantic, historic buildings in DC and have played an incredible role in DC history.  Called the “Grande Dame of Washington” the Mayflower was home to Harry Truman during the renovation of the White House and the host to the inaugural ball of Calvin Coolidge.  There is nothing more romantic then being married in the stunning architecture of the Mayflower.

Congratulations Stacey and Rob!!!

Susan and Michael’s Wedding Day

Even the busiest Washingtonian’s take time out on a beautiful day like this to say…. “we wish you well”.  Susan and Michael we very surely do.  You were so beautiful.   As family and friends spilled out from St Sophia‘s you could hear people saying … “how beautiful”, “what a stunning ceremony”.

St. Sophia’s Historic Cathedral is one of DC’s most awe inspiring sanctuaries with a golden dome 80 feet high and clearstory windows that pour light over the ceremony. Everyone down to the littlest child sat absolutely attentive to the beautiful Greek Orthodox wedding ceremony chanted in perfect clear voice.

Susan and Michael walked Freedom Plaza at sunset and then spent the evening celebrating in the Pavillion of the Reagan Center to wonderful food, traditional Greek dance, an awesome dance band and a very lively party.

We would like to express our thanks to Susan and Michael, their wonderful friends and family for an absolutely amazing day.  Wedding at St Sophia_DM30310Wedding at St SophiaWedding at St Sophia_DM30157_DM30394 Wedding at St Sophia Wedding at St SophiaReagan Building Wedding 322_DM30462IMG_0230 _DM30480 Wedding at St SophiaIMG_0263 Wedding at St Sophia Wedding at St SophiaWedding at St Sophia Wedding at St Sophia Wedding at St Sophia Wedding at St Sophia IMG_0542IMG_0405-2 Wedding at St Sophia Wedding at St Sophia Wedding at St Sophia Wedding at St Sophia Wedding at St Sophia Wedding at St SophiaWedding at St Sophia Wedding at St Sophia Wedding at St Sophia Wedding at St Sophia Wedding at St Sophia Wedding at St Sophia Wedding at St Sophia Wedding at St Sophia Wedding at St Sophia Wedding at St Sophia Wedding at St Sophia Wedding at St Sophia Wedding at St Sophia Wedding at St SophiaWedding at St SophiaWedding at St SophiaWedding at St Sophia Wedding at St Sophia Wedding at St Sophia Wedding at St Sophia Wedding at St Sophia Wedding at St Sophia Wedding at St Sophia Wedding at St Sophia Wedding at St Sophia Wedding at St Sophia Wedding at St Sophia Wedding at St Sophia Wedding at St Sophia Wedding at St Sophia Wedding at St Sophia Wedding at St Sophia Wedding at St Sophia Wedding at St Sophia Wedding at St Sophia Wedding at St Sophia Wedding at St Sophia Wedding at St Sophia Wedding at St Sophia Wedding at St Sophia Wedding at St Sophia Wedding at St Sophia Wedding at St Sophia Wedding at St Sophia Wedding at St Sophia

Melissa & Amir’s Wedding Day

Part of what is most beautiful about a wedding day is the labor of love which says so much about a family… in Melissa’s amazing hand laced dress, mom and sis spending their time laughing and lacing, dad patiently toting flowers all along the waterfront, to a priceless groom meticulously ironing his own handkerchief to put his best foot forward before greeting the most important girl in his life – his bride to be.

The magic of a wedding day is in the loving details and in the amazing people who bring each detail to life.

We would like to express our congratulations and thanks to Melissa and Amir and their wonderful families for an absolutely beautiful, fun filled day.
