What a treat this wedding was to work! Kathy and David planned the most love-filled wedding there could be. Beginning with the warm and charming Josephine Butler Parks Center. It was important to them for their wedding to mean just a little bit more. David, a lawyer, and Kathy, owner of a non-profit writing program for marginalized youth, are both very much involved with giving back to their D.C. community. So what better way than to host their wedding at an amazing venue that stands for community safety, health, education, arts, architecture, and agriculture? Not only is JBPC centrally located in D.C., its mission is to grow city-wide park-based community health and vitality by nurturing innovation and partnerships. Kathy and David took great comfort in knowing their venue rental fee went towards supporting such an important and meaningful establishment.
The love was also felt by the volume of friends and family they invited to this joyous event. I must say the reception space was completely maxed out, but Kathy and David would not have had it any other way. Surrounding themselves with love and laughter on their wedding day as well as great food and drinks is exactly what they wanted to accomplish. And Spilled Milk definitely delivered on the great food part!
There was no shortage of beauty in the space either. With Kathy’s wonderful mother at the helm of the décor plan, Yellow Door Floral Design provided quite the array of stunning floral arrangements. In addition to the guest tables, every nook, cranny, and fireplace mantle at JBPC was accounted for in terms of flowers and candles. It was really a treat to work with and watch this team of vendors transform this already beautiful space into an even more beautiful space.
Though I did not join in the festivities, I was so delighted to see Michael O. Snyder Photography’s super fun and artistic shots of Kathy, David, and some guests at the National Mall. A place that is very near and dear to Kathy and Davids’ hearts. They were transported there in true D.C. style via the Old Town Trolley post-reception. Yet another loving aspect of this wonderful wonderful wedding! Congrats again Kathy and David!
