Awarded Best of Zola
We hired Jeremy to DJ our wedding in September 2018. We are avid (and opinionated) music fans, so this was one of the most important parts of our day. Jeremy's pre-wedding process was efficient, informative, collaborative, and fun. Given all of the information we provided him, he absolutely nailed the vibe we had in mind, and he played an expertly curated and mixed set that was a hit with everyone at the wedding. The dance floor was positively packed all night. Additionally, Jeremy was punctual, courteous, accommodating, and charismatic. What else can you ask for in a wedding DJ?

Cesario Mendez Photography

Washington, DC
  • Photographer
  • Photojournalistic style

When I am not behind the camera or editing photos, I enjoy short Uber rides to bottomless brunch on the weekends; right now mimosas and I kinda have a thing going on! I have a special relationship with bourbon and FIRMLY believe in putting food on the grill during late afternoons should be the norm. I am blessed to be married to the happiest person on earth (I am so serious), who just happens to double as my favorite person. She keeps me grounded and never fails to remind me how great she is.

Awarded Best of Zola
Can't give enough praise to Ceaser and his craft. Working with him for our wedding was an absolute DREAM. From making the trek to Philly not only for our engagement photos, but the wedding, to the planning process...he made everything super smooth and seamless for us. We had the TIME of our lives, and we have the proof thanks to CM! Book him - you won't regret it!!!!

Awarded Best of Zola
I was so overwhelmed when I first started looking for florists for our wedding. There are so many options, and I didn’t even know where to start until I found Poppy. They break down the process and steps, making it super easy, almost to the point that it doesn’t feel real. To start, you meet with a floral consultant where you talk through your wedding details, the vibe you’re going for, the general needs, etc. Then they walk you through a list of various wedding floral options: bouquets, table arrangements, signage florals, ceremony florals, etc., and you start to narrow down what you want. In each section, they have a grouping of photos, and you can either select something from that or ask for more options. You can also tweak what they have shown (I picked florals that had eucalyptus in them and requested everything be switched to ruscus). After that, you have a while to go back in and adjust until a deadline, but they accommodated some last-minute adds I had as well. Our consultant was Sophia, and she was super responsive and wonderful to work with. Closer to the wedding, you get assigned a local florist who does the actual designing/styling and installing, and we were lucky enough to get Ron, who matched our inspo images EXACTLY. Everything was so beautiful, and I was so in love with my bouquet. He was also incredibly nice and set everything up so quickly. If you’re looking for something to make the whole floral selection easy, simple, and beautiful (also super transparent with costs), definitely go with Poppy!!

Awarded Best of Zola
Let me start with District Winery is a fabulous wedding venue! For starters, it is gorgeous inside and out with a besutiful waterfront location. That alone wooed us, but the real wooing came from Latoria, the DW sales manager, who was fantastic to work with. She was incredibly patient answering all of our many questions before we signed the contract and afterwards letting us know the next steps. Another fantastic aspect of weddings at DW is that they assign you an event manager - and now this is where the big, huge thanks come into play. Samantha was absolutely incredible to work with! She was our event manager and left no detail unaccounted for. From our first email exchange to our final walkthrough and then the final, final details, she answered every question and ensured everything was set and ready to go. She is very detail oriented and the spreadsheet she gave us to complete with all of our decor, dietary restrictions, etc. ensured fantastic organization and that everyone was on the same page. Day-of, I could not believe how perfectly everything turned out with our decor, flowers, and food. The food at DW is fantastic - if you haven’t been yet for a visit - go! Everyone knows that you don’t go to a wedding and expect great food and wine, but that is not the case here at DW. After our unbelievable tasting night (which was just insanely awesome), we had to narrow down our favorites which was hard to do!One of my favorite aspects of a wedding is cocktail hour and they delighted with the passed hors d’oeuvres, food stations (including a cheese tower), and bar! Also, as my husband and I keep saying- the best money we spent was on the gorgeous and fun champagne tower! Obviously, I can’t say enough great things about our wedding at District Winery. If we could do it all over again, we would and we wouldn’t change a thing! Huge thanks to Samantha and District Winery for making our dream day come true!

Awarded Best of Zola
Mary truly brought our wedding's colors and spirit to fruition. From the very beginning, she asked all the right questions, offered advice from everything on what lasts the longest to what shows up best in photos. She made us a mood board, kept us within our budget, and then wove it into a reality that was absolutely magical. She also offered suggestions for things we hadn't thought to do (like provide mussy-tussies for the mothers, and a boutonniere for the ring bearer). Seriously, she was the easiest to communicate with of everyone we worked with, we had everything we needed before we thought to ask for it, and she always made us feel like we were the most important thing. So many people told me how beautiful the flowers were, and they were just as elegant in our photos as I remember them being on our wedding day. (I really wish there was an option to show them to you here! They were both vibrant red and soft, with a perfect vintage Hollywood meets gothic vibe--which is exactly what we asked her to do! I really don't know how she made what was in my head appear like that.) I'd recommend working with Davidson Designs to anyone who is even considering it. If you book her, you'll never have to worry about a single thing, she's so professional, and you'll be so, so happy with her installations and arrangements. Do it!

Awarded Best of Zola
We were at a wedding Kelton DJed in 2018 and knew we wanted him to DJ our wedding which was planned for March 21, 2020. From our first conversation we knew Kelton was going to be a good fit for our eclectic tastes. We have Korean & Spanish families who want a wide array of music beyond a typical American wedding playlist. Kelton was super organized and provided us with song recommendations and was totally open to us providing our own Spotify playlists. Actually everything in the planning process was incredibly organized. He pre-made special mixes of our procession and first dance songs to the times we wanted. He even reached out to our photographer and caterer to make sure they all had the same timeline. Our caterer said no DJ has ever done that before. He has a great can do attitude and has been super responsive to all emails. When COVID hit and we had to reschedule to 2021 it couldn't have been easier.

He doubles down as a “Day of Coordinator” as well, making sure the timeline is down to a tee. The lights he set up in our reception was like nothing I’ve seen at any other wedding. He even had us throw down on the turntable and it was such a fun and unique moment that everyone loved!! It really was electric during party time! Mark is also so friendly and personable.

Making personal connection with you is important to me. I believe in serving couples from every background and the more I learn about you the better I can serve you as your wedding photographer. I currently reside in DC but have also living in LA, The Bay Area, and Morocco.

Awarded Best of Zola
If I could give Stefan ten stars, I would. Working with him was an incredible experience from start to finish. He did our engagement photos and our wedding photos and for the former he traveled to New York so we could do the shoot at a location that has a great deal of meaning to us. My husband and I are not people who are usually comfortable in front of a camera, but Stefan goes above and beyond to make sure he is prepared and that you are prepared to have the best shoot possible. He has detailed guides for both engagement and wedding shoots, which were incredibly helpful. He also meets with you to discuss your goals for the shoot, get to know who you are as a couple, and understand the vibe you are going for. Our engagement shoot was on a cold and windy day in a location unfamiliar to him and he did research, arrived early, and knocked it out of the park. For our wedding day, the timeline went exactly to plan and any stress or nerves I was feeling completely melted away because we already knew Stefan was on top of it, knew what we wanted from the day, and that we had a rapport going between us. On our wedding day, our friends and family absolutely gushed about Stefan and how great he is. I can't tell you how many times someone came up to me and said, "Who is your photographer? He is AWESOME." Stefan's style is authentic and he is incredibly skilled. The photos are breathtaking without seeming unnatural or overworked. He is great at capturing your vibe as a couple and making sure that comes through in the photos. He is so easy to get along with and can make even the least photogenic among us (pointing at myself here) comfortable in front of the camera. He is a great photographer and an even more delightful human being and I would recommend him to absolutely anyone.

As a high-end makeup artist servicing some of Washington DC's most prestigious residents for over eight years, I always found it hard to find my "Glam team".

Awarded Best of Zola
I am so glad that I chose Nina Renee Beauty for my wedding day. From the very beginning, Nina had so many ideas and was willing to answer all of my super specific questions. I am an admirer of makeup and hair, with little experience lol. I really just shared my vision with Nina and she let me know what I needed! They completely over delivered on quality of work and customer service!! I also highly recommend their hair extension rental. So easy and the extensions really amplified my hairstyle. By the way! My bridesmaids all felt that this was their favorite hair and makeup experience!

Kelton from Marquee Artists was amazing! He was a communicative and active participant in the planning of the music and the announcements at my wedding on March 9. Kelton provided an extensive list of potential songs to play in a shared Google Document with columns for “play” and “do not play” which was great. Also, I was impressed that he attended the walk through of the Whittemore House a month prior to the wedding, asking pertinent questions of the Whittemore staff about the placement of various things and how best to provide the sound amplification that would be needed. He provided wireless mics which worked really well for the toasts. Kelton did a great job as the master of ceremony and his mix of the selected music was fun and fabulous. He had the crowd dancing, rocking to the music. Many of the older folks told me that they hadn’t danced in years but were having lots of fun doing so then. Having him on our wedding team instilled so much confidence in me, my daughter and new son-in-law, who is an amateur DJ. They were so taken by Kelton that, if possible, they would like to attend future events at which Kelton is the DJ!! I HIGHLY recommend him.

The "Original" Moonlighters ® 

3.7

Washington, DC
  • Band or Ensemble
  • Starts at $2,000

Since 1990, The Moonlighters ® have been performing throughout the U.S. as one of the country’s best-loved and most authentic Motown and variety dance bands, covering all your Jazz/Blues/Oldies/Motown/Soul/Disco/Funk/Classic Rock/Pop favorites! Just close your eyes and you’ll swear the original artists are performing. But don’t close them for too long or you won’t be able to enjoy their outstanding dance moves and showmanship.

We're quite saddened by their google review, posted even before we had a chance to actually speak with them to clear up several serious inaccuracies. Our band has HUNDREDS of positive online reviews/satisfied wedding clients. And we'll always accept valid criticism. But this one is mostly false and unfair. As Zola does not provide the option for responding to negative reviews, the following are our comments: 1. Since the bride and groom hadn't hired a wedding planner everything was extremely disorganized as we received their timeline just one week prior to the event, but then they changed it twice more, including two days before. Despite asking for our bandleader's phone #, the groom never reached out to discuss any of these details. In other words, we were given minimal direction in regard to all of the last-minute changes. Even on the wedding day itself, our band was asked to set and reset their equipment multiple times because the bride and groom disagreed with the onsite coordinator's floor plan, moving/resetting the bride and groom table as well! 2. According to what the photographer told us, the bride and groom's limo driver was over 90 min. late, shifting the entire timeline and putting them in a bad mood from the very beginning, as noticed by our bandleader at around 5:15pm when he first introduced himself, prior to the band providing either live or recorded music. 3. Regarding the recorded music, it was only lacking for approx. 45 min. as the band discovered the phone battery issue at approx. 7:45pm, during their first break, quickly rectifying the situation by putting the phone on a charger and then continuing with the recorded music outside from approx. 8-10pm. Furthermore, they made up for it by keeping their system running for an extra 30 min., beyond our contracted time of 11pm. And those comments regarding the afterparty are also totally untrue as somebody from the band was manning the system, until a cousin of the bride or groom demanded that he use her playlist instead, and then she responded angrily when he finally turned off the system at 11:30pm. 4. As for the band's sound system, we do acknowledge some 'hum' issues as there was just one electrical outlet provided for the entire band, resulting in 'dirty power' which couldn't be fully corrected. And we deeply regret mispronouncing the various names as most were very unfamiliar and of Indian origin, despite our lining up the wedding party in advance and writing everything down phonetically. 5. Even though some of the client's emails mentioned solo keys during cocktails, we provided a duo, covering an extra 30 min. of recorded music from 4:30-5pm at no extra charge, as requested. While it's standard practice for a band to take a dinner break during an almost six hr. event, this was clearly-specified in our contract as well. And then we performed continuously from 8:30-10pm, including most of the requested songs that we had prepared well in advance. So their comments about seemingly just 'walking off a bus' are completely false and misleading. In other words, our musicians went 'above and beyond' in spite of some very challenging circumstances. 6. Fortunately, we did receive a 'happy reaction' with a crowded dance floor and TONS of compliments from the guests, some requesting pictures w/the band too, while even the bride and groom were singing along and dancing non-stop, which we were VERY happy to see, making their negative review even more surprising though!

And using a trained eye and subtle approach, I do so unobtrusively.

Capturing the essence of our joy once my wife and I placed eyes on each other for our first look. Then taking us to Union Market to bring us and our friends together, capturing tender moments of joy and laughter.

Growing up in rural Virginia my intro to photography came to me at 14 while breaking into abandoned houses with friends to take photos that can only be describe in retrospection as “experimental”. Fast forward a handful of years and I found myself going 'legit' and holding a BFA in photography, later finding yet more perspective and cutting my teeth shooting society events in NYC. Having now spent more years of my life taking photos than not, it’s safe to say that I’m all in.

Cassidy has an amazing report when working with clients and the staff on weddings. We have absolutely had the best experiences from the booking process, through to the ease of the day of the wedding.

Nicole and Jose of Bokeh Lane Photography are simply wonderful! So energetic and creative! They shot our engagement session and are slated to shoot our wedding whenever COVID allows for that. We wanted a photographer that has a great eye for candid shots and heard about these two from a friend who had their engagement and wedding shot by them. My friend’s pictures were beautiful, so I reached out to Nicole and Jose. They helped us with every step of the process, even with picking out outfits before the shoot. They’re kind and professional and just so easy to work with. I am not used to being in front of the camera, whereas my fiance is a natural in front of the camera. I told them that up front and they made sure to make me feel comfortable while just letting my fiance be himself, and the pictures came out so great! They are highly responsive as far as communication goes and prices are extremely reasonable for such high quality work. Highly highly recommend!

I was born and raised in a quiet seaside town on the South Shore of Long Island. I grew up in a place where good, strong love grows with parents who have been together since they were 16 years old. They taught me that true love grows in the face of hardship and, as strong believers in their faith, that love is, indeed, patient and kind. And so as soon as I realized that wedding photography didn’t have to be posed and mechanical; that I could shoot weddings from a more organic and authentic lens; that I could document a story, not direct one, I was hooked!

The Lauren Louise Collective team has always been at the top of their game with professionalism and beautiful work. They are easy to work with, fun and it shows how much they truly love their job! Since meeting Lauren it has always been a team player attitude for anything and everything pertaining to couples and their day and it truly shows in the gorgeous imagery she captures. I have always said that Lauren has a way of capturing people at their best!

My husband and I had a tiny COVID wedding and chose Mess Hall as our venue for a post-wedding party to celebrate with all of our friends a year later. Our experience working with the team at Mess Hall was completely wonderful from start to finish! When we first saw Mess Hall and met with Al, we knew we’d found the right place for our party. It was such a warm first meeting, just checking out the venue over a couple of beers, and we could totally picture ourselves and our friends in the cool, laid-back space. We knew right away that we could trust Al to help us pull off our vision for the party. A few months later, Mess Hall added their new event coordinator Jordan, who is absolutely wonderful. Great vibes from the entire team—incredibly supportive, willing to do anything to make our party perfect, and always at the ready with helpful suggestions when we needed them. The day of the party, we felt so loved and supported by everyone at Mess Hall while we collaborated on setting things up (Al personally helped us hang our neon sign and disco ball) and put the finishing touches on our vision. Jordan and Al both made sure everything went smoothly all night—and we have Jordan to personally thank for documenting the party on our polaroid camera! It was a perfect night and we can’t recommend Mess Hall highly enough!

Not only is Rhea an amazing, highly talented Photographer, but she's such a sweet person, extremely helpful, and she was a true joy and ease to work with. I loved that she had a pre-wedding questionnaire to collect initial info and set-up a consultation to explain more about herself, the packages, and explain the process from booking up to the wedding day. Because of how organized and thoughtful she was (in addition to seeing her work on her website and on Instagram) in the consultation, I immediately decided to book her as my wedding day photographer. Rhea also did our engagement pictures and her high energy, yet gentle spirit helped to keep our spirits high on a cold January day! On the wedding day, Rhea and her second shooter were extremely professional and so pleasant to work with. Rhea helped to keep me calm when another vendor was running late and we still had time to get all of our pictures taken that we planned. Prior to selecting a photographer, many people told me the one thing they regretted was not investing in a quality photographer. Because of Rhea, I never have to look back at my wedding photos with regret. Each photo brings me joy whenever I look at it, as she and her second shooter captured the day perfectly!

We booked Danielle for our engagement session and April 2024 wedding. Me and my husband aren't confident in front of the camera and at our engagement session, Danielle made us feel so comfortable. At that moment, we knew we made the right choice for our wedding day! Danielle was an integral part of our planning process - happily scheduling calls as needed to help us develop our timeline, narrow down locations for photos, and even providing us with a detailed timeline and checklists of things to bring for photos. On our wedding day, Danielle ensured that we remained on schedule with our timeline, capturing all the photos that we wanted and needed in a short timeframe. She made an effort to learn the names of our wedding party and family and provided everyone with guidance and feedback in a fun and engaging manner to make sure every photo turned out great! We recently got our sneak peeks back and were so thrilled with how they turned out. We're looking forward to seeing our full gallery soon! Danielle also provided a second shooter at no additional cost to us and he was absolutely fantastic as well! Chris handled getting ready photos of my husband and his groomsmen, making sure they stuck to the timeline, and getting them to where they needed to be - the hardest job of all.

I cannot even express how happy we are to have booked Harrison Films for our wedding!! Before finding them, I was really hesitant about getting a videographer and debated if it was worth the money, but eventually decided we wanted a video to remember the day. After looking at a bunch of their example videos of other weddings on their website, I had a FaceTime call with Deanna and instantly knew I wanted to hire them. From the start Deanna and Grant were incredibly nice, easy to work with, and helpful. Before the wedding day, we went over the schedule and Deanna even created a google doc of the timeline for the entire day that I ended up using to share with all my vendors (photographer, band, etc). On the wedding day, they did an amazing job taking care of everything. They arrived early, helped keep us on schedule so that I never had to worry about the time, and ensured it was an easy, non-stressful day! We wanted to do our first look at the Jefferson memorial because that’s where we got engaged. Little did we know, it was under an insane amount of construction. Somehow, Grant and Deanna found the perfect spots for us to still have our first look and other pictures at the memorial while avoiding all the construction. They stayed the entire night and captured everything and we never had to worry about our time running out with them. Our wedding was Saturday night and by Monday morning they had already sent us a one minute preview video and it is beyond anything I imagined. The full edit was sent a couple months later and it is the most perfect, incredible video I have ever seen. Our wedding was 10 months ago and I watch the wedding video at least once a month. Hiring them was the best wedding decision I made and they are worth every single penny. Even before seeing the preview, on the day of my wedding I was so grateful to have them there and said multiple times to my husband how happy I was to have hired them because they made the day so much easier. If you are going to have a videographer (and trust me, you should) hire Harrison Films!!

We're here to pass the work off so you can get down to fun things like enjoying your family and friends and making sure your big day goes perfect.

All the amazing reviews of Tiffany reflect my own experience as half of a clueless couple whose hands Tiffany held for over a year. Where do I even begin... Tiffany was the first vendor we hired for our wedding, and from then on, she helped us assemble a dream team. We hired Tiffany for the full planning package. With her years of experience planning events and weddings of all sizes in the DMV area, she was able to introduce us to our beyond professional make up artist, cake designer, florist, and catering team. We had a lot of questions and she simply knew all the answers. Our friends and families marveled at how relaxed we were about our upcoming wedding, but there was literally nothing for us to worry about because we were working with Tiffany! Tiffany KNOWS wedding planning and takes great care of her clients AND their families. If you're looking for someone who is kind, responsive, and thorough--and you really should be looking for those qualities in the person planning one of the biggest days of your life--Tiffany is the planner for you. Thank you Tiffany!!!

Hi! I'm Katie, an East Coast & Destination Wedding Photographer, based in Washington D.C. After taking a high-school photography class–it quickly became clear that I loved the art of photography. Soon after graduating, I was offered an internship position near Chicago that allowed me to continue to dive into the world of studio lighting, image editing, and commercial photography; continuing to hone on the technical skills that often get left behind when you have the digital screen to instantly see your work. A few years later, I photographed a friends wedding and it became crystal clear that this was exactly what I wanted to pursue.

Oh my goodness! Kate Grace is the best wedding photographer in the game. I am SO glad we snagged her to photograph our wedding. Throughout the entire process from booking to engagement shoot to COVID-19 wedding planning - Kate was there for us each step of the way. On my wedding day I was barely stressed because I knew Kate would capture every moment perfectly. She took every shot (and then some!!!) on my shot list and delivered THE MOST BEAUTIFUL gallery. Kate even worked with our videographer and sent them pictures for our wedding video. Kate is INCREDIBLE. Hire her. You WILL NOT regret it. As long as we are in the DC area, Kate is our photographer.

Homemade comforting treats, Grandma’s way. Sweetdele's Sweet Treats makes those traditional desserts you can't find anymore - the kind that’s nostalgic from the good ole days. Deborah grew up cooking with the matriarchs of the family, and now shares those Caribbean rum cakes, Lemon pound, and Brown Sugar pound cakes.

I used SweetDele’s for an anniversary party and Deborah did an amazing job! Her desserts were soo good and she was such a joy to work with and to top it off her presentation of decor for the dessert table was beyond perfect!

You can find me drinking coffee, lifting weights, or hanging with our cats on any given day. I love people and I love working with people. Photography and art have been part of my life for over a decade and working with you to create your vision is what brings me the most joy. Reach out to say hello, ask about AGP, and talk about your big day.

Anne documented our wedding day and we cannot say enough good things about her. Through the whole process, from engagement to the big day, she made us feel so comfortable, heard, seen, and supported. Her communication is spectacular and timely and the quality of the photos is an 11 out of 10. Not to mention that our wedding was less than a week ago and we already have an album of GORGEOUS teaser photos! We can't wait to see the rest from the big day because we know that she and her second shooter captured so many special moments during the event. Thanks to Anne for capturing us and our joy so completely. And, if you are looking for someone kind, caring, and talented - look no further! Anne's the one.

My name is Havana and I have been photographing precious moments for roughly 4 years. My favorite place to be is behind the camera capturing all of your special moments. I am new to DC and was previously based in Ohio.

Working with Havana was so much fun. I ran the photo booth and she captured every emotion of the night. She is always my go-to recommendation when a couple is looking for a photographer. Best believe whenever I get married, she will be there.

I have the most amazing memories from childhood of being cuddled up with my Granny going through old pictures. The joy and nostalgia that came from those old film photos where everything. My favorite part was always looking up at my Granny as she got lost in each individual memory, seeing her face shape shift in moments of grief over the past and then instant joy because she knew that she could relive that moment as long as she had those photos. Every time I pick up my camera I strive to create tangible moments that will last a lifetime.

We had the absolute best time with Sy'Vone for both our engagement and wedding photos. She is kind, patient, and has an incredible eye. She understood what I wanted for my wedding photos and even created a vision board so I could verify it (the vision board is also in and of itself just beautiful). Not only did we love her, our guests loved her. Everyone came up to me and said how wonderful she was. I can't thank you enough!

Hi there, I'm Rudney Novaes — And I’ve been intrigued by photography since I was a boy. In youth I discovered a fascination with film when my Father left behind a vintage camera. I was amazed by the mechanics of the time-worn device, in awe of its capability to freeze moments in time. Today, I’m an editorial and wedding photographer capturing stories filled with feeling, and my love of light and film continues to shape my craft. I’m passionate about sharing the knowledge I’ve chased since childhood with aspiring creatives and seasoned professionals alike, and I believe wholeheartedly that there’s always more to learn from one another.

I knew I wanted Rudney to be my wedding photographer before I even had a date or venue. It was love at first sight with his work, and he never disappointed. Rudney was so easy to work with, he is flexible, dedicated, open to your ideas while also giving suggestions to make sure everything turns out perfect. The day of the wedding was effortless, I did not have to worry about what my photographer was doing because I trusted and was confident in Rudney's ability to deliver what I envisioned. His team of professionals were also the best! I will forever treasure my wedding photos, they came out so beautiful and perfectly captured my amazing day. Rudney's work is exquisite, he is truly a master in his art!

I specialize in Wedding, Engagement, Maternity and Marketing Sessions while also spending time getting to know you by the smile on your face, and sparkle in your eyes, creating digital footprints that will last forever & ever! Photography was invited into my life simply because reading a book under a tree shade, or sitting cozy by the fire with my Great Danes, always ended in a great photo that truly spoke to me! As a Christ Follower, I am blessed to share the gifts God has given me and use them to bless others!

I always knew that I wanted to work with Kristie when it came time for my wedding day because of a previous photo shoot I had with her for marketing purposes. Kristie was fun, personal, professional and most importantly she was an expert when it came to instructing my husband and I on how to pose for the camera to look our best. We could not have dreamed of a better photographer. She even referred us to an amazing videographer. We are so grateful to have had Kristie as one of our wedding vendors and highly recommend her to anyone getting married in the DC, MD or VA area.
