Sam and Claire’s stunning wedding in downtown Washington D.C. at the National Museum of Women in the Arts felt classically glamorous from top to bottom. From Claire’s elegantly simple gown to Sam’s charming black tie look to the marbled terraces in the gorgeous venue – everything worked to create a picture of classic perfection.
The ceremony was made up of dual traditions – Espicopalian on Claire’s side and Jewish on Sam’s side – and they combined in a really lovely way throughout the evening. The handmade Chuppah had photos of past generations, friends and family spoke blessings over the couple, the prayers melted all of our hearts, and the hora dance later in the night got everybody on the dance floor!
A big thanks to Ashlee Virginia Events and Well Dunn Catering for creating such a magical evening for Sam and Claire! We are especially fond of this lovely couple!
Sam and Claire: All I can say is… wow! You knocked our socks off with your smiles and your joy with every second of the day. You two have such a sunny future ahead of you, and we are simply honored that we got to experience this magical moment with you both! Lots of love to you both, my dear friends!
