When we first met Kate & Nick, we were instantly smitten by the two of them.  They were so adorable together, finishing each other's sentences as they described their dream wedding. We were honored when they selected us to plan their December winter wedding at The Cathedral of St. Matthew the Apostle followed by a reception at The Hay-Adams Hotel.


Kate & Nick's ceremony at St. Matthew's was beautiful.  The church is iconic here in DC as it is the seat of the Archbishop of Washington and plays a major role in the Catholic life of the nation’s capital.  Most notably, St. Matthew's was home to the funeral mass for President John F. Kennedy in 1963.

Following the ceremony, Kate & Nick descended down the church steps where a horse-drawn carriage was waiting to take them to Lafayatte Park for a few pictures.

Kate & Nick work on the Hill and were able to get permission to take a few pictures inside the Capitol Rotunda - how amazing, right?

Isn't the view looking down the National Mall incredible?  Speaking of amazing views...

...Kate & Nick's reception took place at The Top of the Hay - the amazing enclosed event space on the former rooftop of The Hay-Adams Hotel. With views of the White House and Washington Monument, it is one of DCs premier event spaces. We absolutely love the staff at The Hay-Adams - wonderful food, great service and the best views! For Kate & Nick's winter inspired design, we kept the look crisp and clean.  We worked with Edge Floral on white floral arrangements with red accents in a collection of  silver vases.  The room glistened with candle light via tapers in silver candelabras and hanging votives overhead.  Silver chiavari chairs finished the crisp winter look.

Special thanks to: Edge Floral, Wedding Photojournalism by Rodney Bailey, Blue Sky Films, DJ Chris Laich, Kendall's Cakes, The Dandelion Patch, Carl Ray & the staff at George~Four Seasons Salon, Sunny's Transportation, and Haydee and the staff at The Hay-Adams!

 Congrats Kate & Nick! Thank you for giving us the honor of being your wedding planners!

    I agree it’s important to tackle a few of the very acute college and college topics of today – the issue of essay and research paper writing.
    A few months ago I needed to compose an article on American Civil War, and it
    is clearly not my area of experience. Two days prior to the deadline I was seeking samples of
    similar newspapers when a groupmate shared this link with me: https://essayhub.com. I am able
    to advise this platform talking from my own experience.
    In case you wonder what grade I received, it turned out to be a powerful A+!
