Washington has always been one of my favorite places. So when Juli & John called me to go back, I had to accept. With Juli in New York and me in Lexington, we made the most of our time together. I admit, working with Juli and her mother in the Nation’s Capital was one of the highlights of my summer. On my first trip to DC, Juli’s mother picked me up at the metro and greeted me with a warm cup of hot chocolate… it was an instant connection!
Juli’s style is timeless and classic with a splash of fun ~ and of course her wedding needed to match! The ceremony was held at the beautiful St Patrick Church in the heart of The District. Juli & John completed their vows and recessed down the isle to bagpipes playing Irish Eyes are Smiling.
At the country club, guests were greeted with watermelon margaritas and dark n’ stormies. Instead of a guest book, wine bottles were signed, which will be opened and enjoyed on their 5, 10 and 20 year anniversaries. The night closed with an ice cream sundae bar and Juli and John on stage singing and dancing with the band.
It is safe to say, all had a memorable evening.
