Marianna & Todd: 101 Constitution Avenue

Hi Everyone! I'm so happy to contribute my first entry to the KCE blog and especially excited to share Marianna and Todd's day with you. This couple was special to me for so many reasons - they're fellow Floridians, were my first clients while at KCE and more importantly are two of the sweetest, most thoughtful people I've worked with to date. Everything about their wedding day spoke to them as a couple; each detail expressed a part of who they were and told their story which made me feel as if I had known them forever. I always appreciate couples who interlace touches of their personality throughout the event, whether it's with DIY projects or custom made goods - it always ends up making the wedding that much more special and warm for their guests to take part in and Marianna and Todd did not disappoint.

So onto a little bit of background before I share the gorgeous details. Marianna and Todd met in high school (when she developed a huge crush on Todd) and later reunited while attending University of Central Florida (to Marianna's delight). They're huge fans of puzzles and games, insanely creative and clearly love DC's rich history which was reflected in every aspect of the wedding from the homemade wedding cake (you won't believe it when you see it!) to the escort cards which doubled as clues for the guests to find their tables. The location couldn't have been any more perfect with breathtaking views of the Capitol on a splendid Fall day. I could go on and on but would rather let you see the amazing photographs for yourself from the super talented, Andrew Harnik of Andrew Harnik Photography. Enjoy!

Didn't I tell you their homemade cake was unbelievable?

The escort cards contained clues which led each guest to their table adorned with a DC landmark centerpiece. The guests were asked to take these beautiful mementos home at the end of the night.

Todd and Marianna danced the night away especially when "la hora loca" began, a Venezuelan wedding tradition which everyone got into!

Can't beat the view...or this night - Congrats Marianna and Todd!!
