Rosa and Eric’s guests were truly treated when they entered the wedding reception at the W Hotel . (Did you miss their classic church wedding ceremony in DC?) Fun and interactive cocktail napkins and games kicked off the evening, which flowed with delicious food, an ample dessert bar and irresistible late night snacks. Besides the gorgeous views outside, DC continued to make itself known, this time in the form of the Redskins!
From Rosa: While neither of us are ‘from’ DC, we met here and have lived and worked here for ten years, so we wanted the city to be part of the wedding. Everything from the invitations to the choice of the W Hotel, with its location near the White House and amazing rooftop views, helped incorporate the city. The song that was playing as we were introduced at the reception was the Hail to the Redskins.
Our favors were popular – mini bottles of prosecco (a favorite of my mine) with a letter-pressed note from us that we then signed.
Our table names were places that had been important in our lives, both individually and as a couple.
I also really enjoyed seeing all of our friends and family having a great time on the dance floor – including when I rocked out with the band leader as our guests looked on. Guests also seemed to really enjoy the late night snacks provided, including PBJ sandwiches, sliders, and grilled cheese with tomato soup.
