Today’s couple, Katie and Thomas, met at a Jazz in the Garden event thrown by their graduate program. “So DC, I know,” says Katie! The two didn’t realize that they were in the same program but they ended up having a class together that semester. Katie would always make sure to sit where she could see Thomas; “I wanted to look at something cute during class!” How adorable are they?! Their fall DC wedding was held at Christ Church Georgetown and City Tavern Club.
We love the pops of red in the florals and Katie’s shoes that really stand out among the clean, crisp white of their decor. The clusters of fruit featured in all of their centerpieces was also a fun touch! We’re suckers for unique centerpiece designs and this one really evokes fall for us. The alternating jade green and gold rimmed dinner plates are also a great detail; we just can’t get enough of those pops of color. Thank you to Liz Stewart Photography for sharing this City Tavern Club wedding with us today!
Tell us your proposal story. Thomas asked at the National Gallery November 3, 2016 (one day and year before our wedding!). He had asked my parents for their blessing nearly a month before, unbeknownst to me until my Dad spilled the beans. But I put it far from my mind, convinced that it wasn’t coming any time soon. However, as we traveled to the National Gallery of Art it occurred to me that maybe, just maybe, he was going to propose. But as we kept circling room after room with no proposal in sight (or ring box, for that matter) I thought that I had completely misread the situation and was dead wrong. As I was busy telling myself to not show that I was really disappointed, he took me by surprise; he dropped to one knee in an empty gallery and popped the question. A bonus? It was in front our a favorite painter of ours: Winslow Homer. The piece? “Breezing Up (a Fair Wind).”
