We’re back with part two of Jill and Brian’s fall-filled DC wedding from The Observatory (Did you catch their wedding ceremony?) The autumn flowers and hues made an equally exquisite appearance at their reception, flanking the table and the cake. But the cake wasn’t the only sweet treat guests had the privilege of enjoying. Take a look at all the scrumptious options that closed out this perfectly sophisticated celebration!
From Jill: The main priorities were food and music! We wanted a delicious meal, followed by a packed dance floor. Having the reception at the Park Hyatt meant that the Blue Duck Tavern provided the catering, which was wonderful. Rusty B of DJ D-Mac met with us to talk about our music styles and did a great job of translating them on the day of.
Jill and Brian’s advice to other DC-area couples:
Great vendors are the key! We chose vendors who we got along well with personally and who’s expertise we trusted–we genuinely enjoyed working with each of them. Michael Deltette of the Park Hyatt was a great example–we didn’t have to worry about a thing related to the reception and the day of the wedding couldn’t have gone more smoothly. The same can be said for everyone else we worked with. Also, plan early! Venues and vendors can book far in advance in the DC area and it removes a lot of stress to have decisions made.
