Jenelle and Seth's Wedding

536492

Our wedding was the best day ever! The Hotel Monaco was the perfect location for the ceremony and reception. We had the ceremony in the courtyard and moved to the ballroom for dinner and dancing. The staff was friendly and professional. Alexandria was a great destination for our guests as the city has tons of charm and lots of things to do. August was still a bit hot but the evenings cooled down nicely.

DJs

DJ Steve from the Davis Event Group provided DJ services for our wedding at the Hotel Monaco Alexandria. Our experiences from selecting our DJ through the event itself was easy and professional. Their website was informative and we were able to make our choice of DJ from a personal recommendation. The information questionnaire was simple to complete and Steve Thomas and his team were very responsive to special requests and questions. The day of, DJ Steve met every expectation and executed our ceremony music just as I had imagined it. He took the time to talk to us and made recommendations for ensuring our evening went as smooth as possible. He even accommodated a last minute request of ours! I will recommend Davis Event Group and especially DJ Steve to anyone for their professionalism and quality of service.

EDGE created our flowers for our wedding at the Hotel Monaco Alexandria. The flowers were incredibly beautiful and turned out even more amazing than I had imagined. They were able to create beautiful centerpieces from my vision of simple, wildflower-like bouquets. My bouquet exceeded my expectations and was the prettiest bouquet I had ever seen. My favorite pieces were the boutonnieres. They were floral yet masculine (if that makes sense!) Everything was just perfect!

Our engagement session with Danielle was the first time either of us had used professional photography services. Neither of us had any idea what to expect or how to act. Danielle made the experience relaxing and fun. She is beyond talented and professional. She immediately put us both at ease and gave us direction without being bossy. Her fun personality is contagious and she is just fun to spend time with. On our wedding day, she was so warm and kind and accommodating to my recommendations for photos. When the ceremony began she was just a fly on the wall. She was there without being there. (Which is a good thing!) Her photos are amazing and she has very affordable packages. I can't wait to call Danielle to schedule our first family photos! Super highly recommended!

Tracy was amazing to work with. She was always professional and kind in her communications. She was extremely responsive which is wonderful for a control freak bride like me! We were planning a VA wedding from Korea and Tracy made the processes seamless, smooth, and simply easy. As the date grew closer to the wedding, I only panicked over having nothing to stress about. Tracy had taken care of everything. On the wedding day, Tracy and her team ensured I only had to enjoy the day with my friends and family. She made everything happen and executed all my ideas perfectly. She took the time to make sure she understood my vision and expectations. I will never regret hiring a wedding planner and will recommend anyone to Tracy and Events to a T DC.

The Monaco Alexandria was the perfect place to have our wedding. The hotel is charming and full of personality. The location in Old Town is perfect for out-of-town guests and for hosting additional wedding events in the area. Allison and Sarah from the events staff at the Monaco were amazing to work with. They were professional, responsive and were able to customize an already incredible wedding package to meet our budget. The wedding packages that the Monaco offers were ideal for our celebration as we didn't want to deal with a bunch of different vendors. The Monaco was a one-stop shop for creating our wedding day. The catering from Jackson 20 is out of this world! The food was the number one most important thing to us for our wedding day and the Monco and Jackson 20 nailed it! From the sorbet spritzers at the reception, the passed appetizers at cocktail hour, the craft beers, delicious wine, all the way to the customized brisket and BBQ chicken dinner. The dessert spread was incredible and the chocolate cake stole my heart!

The morning of the wedding, we had a catered lunch to the suite. The staff was kind and attentive. The food was freaking delicious! The staff prepared for everything and we wanted for nothing.

All of the staff we encountered at the Monaco during our stay were kind and professional. It was a memorable and warm stay. I recommend the Monaco Alexandria for anyone's Old Town wedding. They will make sure your day is special and perfect.
