A Glamorous Newseum Bash {Dana & Chris Part 2}

As planners, we are always excited to work in a new venue, so I was delighted to get the chance to plan the first wedding on the main floor of The Newseum!  Typically an area that is used for non-profit and corporate events, the main floor was perfect for this couple!  The groom was wonderfully involved and insistent on having the party of the century, so a party we had! 

Sugarplum Tent provided us with a wonderful clear tent for the second floor balcony for cocktail hour, and the Greek band Achilles began the night for us and played throughout the dinner hour.  So fun!

Stephanie Retelle with Wolfgang Puck provided the 350 guests with a wonderful spread to keep everyone full for the long night ahead!  Georgetown Cupcakes provided red velvet cupcakes adorned with the couple’s initials for dessert!

The fabulous Liz Waylan at DC Rental provided us with the elegant linens, base plates, glassware and flatware to complete the look!

After dinner, the talented 80’s band Spazmatics came all the way from LA to get the party started!  How great is their “Revenge of the Nerds” attire! 

Amaryllis helped us transform the tent into an after party, which went into the wee hours of the morning, with some funky black lounge furniture and red lighting!  We had The Cigar Box out to roll cigars and showed the Pacquiao/Marquez fight on the big screen.  DJ Seyhan Duru kept the music going for all of the late night partiers!

 This wedding was truly amazing and so fun to work on!  Congratulations to the loving couple, Dana & Chris!!
