Ariana and Leo’s Northern Virginia wedding really won me over with their totally unique ceremony venue at the GW Masonic Temple in Alexandria! The guests sat theater style and the duo tied the knot on stage! The rest of the evening was full of exciting surprises, like a salsa dance from the bride and groom themselves! If I had to classify this wedding? Black and white and glamour all over!

Our ceremony was held in the grand theater of the Masonic Temple and we were married on stage it was great I felt like an actress or a star! My father in law preformed the ceremony and that meant a lot to us.

We also had a “gift of dance” which means my closest female friends and family preformed a coordinated dance.
