Jamie and Cory met in June 2014 through an online dating website, which let’s be honest is the “new blind date” of our generation! Shortly after meeting, they realized they grew up in the same area. While they had a year age difference in school, they had a ton of mutual friends. What a small world! After a year of dating, Cory proposed on a fall afternoon at Hollins Farm. Jamie was apple picking with friends and Cory surprised her by getting down on one knee as the orchard provided the perfect fall backdrop.
Knowing that they wanted to get married in the heart of the city, the pair chose the historic yet modern Hotel Monaco DC wedding site for their nuptials in November. To match the overall ambiance of the glam DC wedding hotel, their day included a romantic palette of black and white with gold and blush accents. Their beautiful florals by Bergeron’s Flowers were woven in perfectly with this palette.
In keeping with Jewish tradition, the ceremony was timed for after sunset on Saturday. Because they wished to be surrounded by friends and family, the couple chose to have seating in the round. Their draped, floral chuppah was surrounded on three sides. We love when couples opt for seating like this as it creates a more personal wedding experience for guests. Upon entering the reception post ceremony, guests were greeted by champagne-filled glasses with gold and black place card sticks inside. The couple wanted to make sure guests walked into the reception ready to dance, with a bubbly drink in hand. We absolutely love a unique escort card “display.” This is one of our favorites! Thank you to Danielle Real Photography for sharing this glam Jewish Hotel Monaco DC wedding with us today.
