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!!

Show your best gals how much you appreciate the love and support they've given you over the years (especially during your often-stressful wedding planning process) by outfitting them in bridesmaid dresses that they'll actually be excited to wear! Join Hitched for a week of dress trials and discounts during our Amsale Bridesmaid Trunk Show, March 22nd -30th!
Amsale's bridesmaid dresses are chic, sophisticated and modern, so it's no surprise that they're a favorite among Hitched bridesmaids-to-be. At the Bridesmaid Trunk Show they'll have tons of Amsale dress options to try, so grab your girls and be prepared to be wowed by bridesmaid dresses that they'll love. For this week only, they'll be offering 15% off of any Amsale bridesmaid dress!
If your girls are local, just have them make an appointment that week to come in to choose their dresses and complete their purchase. Have some out of town bridesmaids who can't make it to the store, but would also love to take advantage of the discount? No problem! Simply have them email or fax their completed forms and payment during that time frame, and Hitched will take care of the rest.
In order to be eligible for this promotion, each bridesmaid in your bridal party must complete her order forms, submit them to Hitched, and pay for her dress in full March 22nd – March 30th, 2012. The entire order must be completed and ready for submission to Amsale no later than March 30th, 2012 in order for the 15% discount to be applicable. Orders completed after March 30th will not receive the 15% Trunk Show discount.
