In the spirit of full disclosure, we were hoping to unveil the newly redesigned United with Love Blog this past Monday but unfortunately all did not go as planned and, as readers might have noticed, we have had some technical glitches this week! Thank you for your patience as we resolved our issues, and we are so glad to say we are back to normal with another beautiful DC wedding that is sure to wow! (And have no fear a fresh new look is still coming soon!!!!)

When Doug and Allison were planning their DC wedding ceremony and reception, they knew they wanted to provide a unique, personal and above all, fun experience for their guests. Most of their guests were from outside of the D.C. area so they decided it was important to find a venue that would give the guests a true “DC experience” but with a unique perspective. After looking at several DC wedding venues, they immediately fell in love with Top of the Hay, at the Hay Adams Hotel. With its French doors leading to a wrap-around balcony with a commanding view of The White House, iconic Monuments, and the Potomac River, they knew it was the perfect spot for their reception. While their wedding was a black tie city affair, it was important to incorporate details from Bethany Beach, DE where the couple met and vacation. To bring the two ideas together, they worked with their planning team at A. Dominick Events to merge personal and fun details such as Doug’s old life-saving buoy as a unique guest book and the addition of popular food elements in Bethany such as late night passed burgers and fries in Boardwalk Fry cups and a candy cart with treats from Candy Kitchen. We love all of the romantic touches paired with personal notes from the couple which created such an experience for their guests! Thank you to Jody and Kurt Photography for sharing this delightful wedding with us today!
