The first dance: "The Lovers' Waltz" by Jay Unger and Molly Mason

Alison and Rob, 1/9/2010 - Carnegie Institution, Washington, DC

The first dance: "Beyond the Sea" by Bobby Darin
The music: The bride and groom gave me a great list to start with, and a lot of latitude to make it all work. Guests enjoyed everything from downtempo electronica to indie rock to international music and current dance hits. It was great!
A touching moment: All of the toasts were amazing, it was clear that there was a lot of love in the room. I almost got choked up!
Outstanding vendors: All I can say is, WOW. This was a "green" wedding (love it!) and the vendor team was AMAZING. Catering by Michelle Fishman and Main Event Caterers, flowers and decor by Katie Martin at Elegance and Simplicity, not to mention one of our faves, Cherry Blossim String Quartet who played the ceremony and cocktail hour. Darla Keefer at the Carnegie Institution was great to work with beforehand, and photographer Greg Gibson was outstanding as well!
