I absolutely LOVE the mayflower hotel, love our nation and the monuments that surround DC. When Michelle and Pat hired us, we were thrilled as we love the mayflower, its elegance, and its beautiful ballrooms and corridors. Subtle beautiful details are throughout.
Michelle and Pat both got ready for their big day on site. Michelle wore a family heirloom which was a crowned veil and blusher. Her classy dress was amazing. Pat wore a white tux… fabulous and he looked so good! They didn’t share a first look so the anticipation was real, welcome, and fulfilling. All separates were done pre-ceremony. With the the passing of Michelle’s dad, her amazing Uncle stepped into the place of her escort and honor. They rode together in a black Cadillac to the wedding which was intimate and special. Upon arrival he walked her down the aisle towards Pat. The church was beautiful! Full mass followed by a beautiful cocktail hour for guests. While guests mingled, the newlywed, wedding party and is gallivanted through DC and hit up 3 iconic DC locations! The reflecting pool at the Lincoln Memorial, the WWII museum, and the Washington monument… oh and someone ordered ShakeShack Fries midway through!!
Soon after their arrival back to the hotel, their sweet dog and really cute flower children met us for a few photos. Guests were ushered into the gorgeous ballroom. Our newlyweds were introduced from the balcony, had a beautiful first day followed by their cake cutting. The reception was fast paced, lots of dancing, a rockin band complete with sax solos and glow sticks! I love the balcony at Mayflower because we are able to get so many great dancing photos!
What a day! Michelle and Pat, thanks for trusting us! It was an awesome day that we could live over and over! We wish you all the best!
