Ceremony: Holy Trinity Catholic Church. Luckily, we were just at Holy Trinity earlier in the year so we have become familiar with the church. Funny moment: some Georgetown students were across the street from the church and saw the groom and groomsmen and invited them over to what seemed like a keg party. Fortunately, the guys knew better.
Reception Venue: Washington Golf and Country Club. [Molly Jones] We have not worked at Washington Golf and Country since 2006. You either need to be a member or be sponsored by a member to have your event here. Molly is great to work with and made our jobs very easy.
Photographer: Rob Holley.
Floral Designer: Growing Wild Floral Company (Barbara von Elm)
Band: BS&M (booked through Sam Hill) While this was not necessarily a huge dancing crowd, the band sounded great and had great energy without being cheesy. They apparently play at the Club a lot.
Baker: Fluffy Thoughts (Lara Stuckey) Beautiful and deliciously moist.
Rentals: Party Rental (linens) and A Grand Event (outdoor heaters). For a late fall wedding, it was a great idea to have the heaters on the back patio because the guests were able to spend much of the evening enjoying the view. A Grand Event was great to work with that I used them for both our November events.
Favors: Historical Chocolate Company. Chocolate version of the Capitol dome, appropriate for a groom who works on the Hill.
Invitations: Haute Papier. I wish I have a photo of it. It was a beautiful taupe color paper with a gold swirl pattern similar to the one on the wedding cake.
Videography: Thomas Bowen Films [Joe] A last minute decision to capture the day since one of the grandparents could not be there. Something to think about if you are in a similar situation.
Makeup artist: Tica Beauty [Marti] I thought all the makeup looked really great and I liked that Marti does a makeup chart for each of her clients so that she knows exactly the colors to use on the wedding day. See photo below.
