Kylene and Tony were married at the virtually brand spanking new Line Hotel in the heart of Adams Morgan, Washington, D.C. It was pretty clear that having the city as the backdrop (literally) to their wedding was very important to this ridiculously delightful couple. In their own words, D.C. is where they met in 2013, where they fell in love, and where they call home. The Line Hotel’s rooftop offered jaw dropping views for all to take in during their touching ceremony and Jess Latos Photography killed it with capturing all of the feels! The city skyline was also represented on their remarkable 4-tier wedding cake by Buttercream Bakeshop

It would be criminal for me to reminisce about my wonderful experience working with Kylene and Tony without also reminiscing about the Mother of the Bride - aka the GOAT! Special shout-out to Kylene’s mom who was an infectious ball of energy and so much fun to work with. I mean, hello, she ordered blinged out microphones as dance floor props! With Kylene and Tony along for the ride, all of their attention to detail in planning and all of the blood, sweat, and tears paid off. The worrying was all for naught because the day was absolutely incredible.

Congrats to Kylene and Tony! And thank you so much for adding the scrumptious, uniquely flavored popcorn by Stella’s PopKern as wedding favors, they were a huge hit!

Elisabeth and Adam // Carnegie Library, Washington DC // DC Wedding Planner

Elisabeth and Adam are rad. It’s just true. Case in point: they met at a NOW conference. Elisabeth was recruiting attendees and donors for the PAC reception and auction that supports women running for office. Adam received a text from a mutual friend who asked "how do you feel about feminists and open bars?" Adam's response? "I like where this is going."

I worked with them as their Month-Of Coordinator for their wedding this past July at Carnegie Library and had a blast. Elisabeth and Adam together, apart, and as mirrored in all their incredibly friendly, awesome friends and family, are witty, smart, goofy, gorgeous and kick-a$$. As you shall see:

After they both got ready, we started the day at Carnegie Library to do a first look as well as some bridal party photos. It unfortunately was raining that day and so we waited an extra 15 minutes to try and avoid them getting too wet on their way to the synagogue for their ceremony!

And ah, their ceremony. Their ceremony might be my favorite ceremony of the year. It was so personal, so touching, so funny - it was really them and therefore, it was beautiful. Plus, Lis walked herself down the aisle, which is bad-ass.  The ceremony took place in the stunning chapel at Washington Hebrew Congregation - I thought this intimate, warm, and lovely chapel was the perfect ceremony space.

Back at Carnegie, Main Event Caterers were getting the reception all set up (along with my fantastic assistant for the day, Shana - yay Shana!). Lis and Adam's overall theme was “Come Fly With Us” - as they both love to travel. Adam’s mother does floral and event design and she created the most beautiful escort card chart, as well as adorable little airplanes we added to the floral arrangements by Lisa Sommers at Petals and Promises. Their tables were also all named after some of their favorite destinations. After a great meal, they danced the night away. And this crowd DANCED, people. They partied hard and it was incredible.

Congrats again to Lis and Adam!
