My new associate, Tarra, coordinated this awesome wedding on Memorial Day. Handing it off to her to give us more details on Mariah and Rob's wonderful DC wedding! Take it away, Tarra...
Mariah and Rob were married in Washington, DC on Memorial Day Eve this past May. Perfect weather, gorgeous bride, excited groom, and exultant family and friends. Nothing but love hung in the air that day. Even patrons of the busy Meridian Hill Park - where the loving ceremony was held - stopped to soak up the joyous occasion.
The wedding reception for their 140ish guests was held in their BREATHTAKING condo in Adams Morgan. Both the décor and vibe of the night was anchored around music – with ceiling to floor mobiles and chandeliers made of vinyl records. Guitar picks and music lyrics were also scattered about throughout the unique venue along with Mariah’s DIY floral arrangements. And did I mentioned the private ROOFTOP DECK? Please do not ask me how we managed to fit everyone up there for a sit down dinner - plus a 3-piece band, plus a dance floor, plus a bar! All I can say is man did they pick the best condo ever to call home. Big shout outs to Rouge Catering, Allied Party Rentals, and John Farr Lighting for helping make this all possible. Oh and last but not least, kind of like cherry on top - only saltier - I’d like to thank Rappahannock Oyster for coming out and making cocktail hour all the more fun.
This was a DC wedding through and through - their love for the city was so abundantly clear. I mean come on, these two sprung for a Adams Morgan Jumbo Slice in their wedding attire almost immediately after the ceremony! And let’s not forget National Pedicab who help shuttle guests to and from the park. So DC!
It was such a pleasure working this beyond-fun and non-traditional wedding. I must thank Stephen Gosling for brilliantly capturing the day exactly as I remember it. Congrats again to Mariah and Rob!
