I just recently got engaged a day before New Years. I am looking at the Silver Spring Civic Center for the reception and the World War I Memorial for the cermony… Any suggestion on catering would be great. My wedding date is set for May 25, 2013 as of now!

Hey all! I’m a DC bride too! June 9th seems like it can’t come soon enough, yet also like its coming far too quickly. 

Ceremony: Epiphany Catholic Church, Georgetown

Reception: The Fairmont

Photographer: Kristen Gardner

Florist: Holly Chapple, hopeully, seems there was an issue with a lost deposit

Dress: Vera Wang, sample bought from Saks Jandel

Shoes: Vera Wang Lavender, one of the few that do beautiful flats that don’t cost $500

Bridesmaids: Priscilla of Boston – ordered just before they went out of business, they came in just fine

Groom/Groomsmen – undecided, most likely MW

Invitations – most likely ordering from The Aerialist Press, based out of San Francisco. They do very affordable letterpress. 

Hair/Makeup – my personal stylist also does weddings, Kristin Beaubien


I am wondering if any DC residents/brides have any ideas for rehearsal locations? Preferably close to the Georgetown area. I don’t mind heading into Dupont or the Downtown area, but our hotel is in Georgetown/West End, and I don’t want peopel to have to cab too far.

@CC2012:  My wedding was in the Colonade room at the Fairmont– I love love loved it!!!

We had our rehersal dinner down the street from there at a place called Hudsons or something like that. THere is also a place near by called Georgia Brown’s you could look up. THey were a little too country for my taste though.

@MrsDiddles:  DH and I had our first date at the Walters! It’s beautiful.


We got married in a state park. Small budget, but it was such a wonderful day. Congrats to all the local bees! Laughing

My wedding is 12/15/2012.  We are in the process of lining up our vendors, but we are getting married at our synagouge in Rockville, MD.  We are also have  the reception there.

I am in the process of ordering my dress- Lazaro 3018.

The only vendor (other than location) we have so far is our photographer- Len DePas.  I am super excited because we are going to take engagement photos soon.

Our catere has to be Kosher so that really limits our choices.

Oh, I love this thread!  It’s nice to see people from my area.  We are from VA (and I will always consider that home), family is all in DC and currently we live in NJ while I’m in grad school.  We knew we wanted to get married at a winery, so we looked all over NOVA but ended up choosing one in Charlottesville.  

When?:  September 15, 2012

Where?: Keswick Vineyards.  I can’t wait – I started crying when we took the tour, so I knew it was the place for us!

Local Vendors?:  Most of my vendors are from C-ville, except my photographer who I have to mention, because he is beyond amazing.  He’s in NOVA, and his name is Ken Pak.  I loved him before I got his prices and thought for sure I wouldn’t be able to afford him, but was shocked at how reasonable his prices were!  I’m very excited about him…and everything else, for that matter!
