” Our ideal wedding is a celebration that brings our closest friends and family together and everyone can dance, celebrate and enjoy the day! We want to create an atmosphere through the venue, music, decor that make people want to have a great time!” - Hilary
I think the wedding turned out exactly the way they wanted it to because it was STUNNING and flawless. Hilary’s sister did a phenomenal job planning and putting together all the details of the day! This was a destination wedding for both of them because Hilary grew up in PA and Phil is from CT so the families came from all around to celebrate with them in Alexandria!
The wedding party was a blast to work with even thought it was a scorcher of a day. I am always amazed at how much easier a day goes when they cooperate and have fun with me for the photos. The light was perfect streaming through the cobbled street of Alexandria and setting off the vibrant colors of the bridesmaids dresses. Phil and Hilary are obviously in love because they spent most of the day laughing and looked fantastic together in photos. Hilary’s blue eyes were amazing and I love that Phil rocked a hat with his grey suit!
I have never seen the room at Hotel Monaco so colorful! The pinks and purples popped off of the grey walls and made the atmosphere sophisticated yet comfortable for their guests. The party was SO much fun thanks to MyDeejay who always gets the guests going! I saw some insane dance moves out there on the floor! Custom labeled beers were their favors! Guests were told to mix Phil (a dark beer) and Hilary (a light beer) together to make a black and tan. I love their sense of humor and unique favor idea!
Congrats you two and thanks so much for having me there on your wedding day! I loved getting to spend time with you and all your fantastic friends and family!!
