James and Kristina's Wedding

174817

We had a lot of fun at our wedding. Getting married in DC was fantastic, but a little stressful around the Cherry Blossom Festival. There were a lot of road closures, but it all worked out and all the guests were able to make it to the wedding. Everything was great and I would happily recommend the majority of my vendors to any bride.

Kirk was an amazing DJ at our wedding. The dance floor was packed the entire night!

MK and Jaime Windon were the best! Their work was amazing and having them there at the wedding was like having two old friends hang out with you. They were professional and personable. I would highly recommend MK or Jaime and can't wait to use either one for family pictures when my husband and I start a family.

Linda was amazing. She was able to work her magic and create beautiful flowers on such a limited budget.

Emily was another amazing vendor I got to work with. She was one of the most reasonable and relaxed make-up artist I met. I was happy to have her there to do my and my bridal party's makeup!

Ceremony Sites

The church is gorgeous, but the priests here are very conservative. The priest we had decided to use his homily at our wedding as a soap box for preach about creationism and the political field. I would recommend anyone getting married at this church to know the priest personally or ask if you can invite your closest priest to do your ceremony.

Reception Sites

I stayed at this hotel the night before my wedding. Unfortunately the morning/afternoon of my wedding, there was heavy construction on the roof. I could barely talk to my vendors who did show up. The construction did clear up just before I left for the ceremony.

I was disappointed that the reception site closed the mural in our ballroom. It was one of the features I liked. While most of the staff was extremely helpful, the evening supervisor was very rude and hard to find when we were trying to get out of the ballroom for the evening.

The staff here was so helpful. I had to get a write-up of one of the readings to my aunt. One of the hotel's staff at the front desk gave me their email address and they printed it out and immediately ran it over to my aunt. I also heard the digs here were really nice, especially for the price!

My only complaint is my guests never received the guest bags I dropped off.

Even after signing a contract for a group rate and block of rooms, guests had trouble booking with this hotel. Apparently there was no record of the block of rooms when they tried to book with this hotel. I wouldn't recommend them at all unless you are having the wedding here.
