Matt and Chris are one of our all-time favorite couples. Lynn first "merried" them a few years ago in Charlottesville at a fabulous event at Keswick Hall and last year they were officially married in front of the United States Capitol at dusk. Not only are Matt and Chris wonderful clients, but they have become dear, dear friends to Lynn and Easton Events. With exceptionally refined taste and a warming presence, their wedding couldn't have been a happier experience. We think of Matt and Chris often as they have inspired our team with their business credo: Work Hard, Have Fun, Fight Nice, and Hire Well! The schedule of the evening was a twist on tradition. Cocktails and dinner were held on the 7th floor. After rounds of toasts guests were invited up to the 8th floor roof terrace and handed fur blankets for the intimate ceremony. Immediately following, DJ Ray pumped the tunes of Tina Turner luring the guests onto the dance floor. Now to the dinner… the room was purely illuminated by candlelight. Four hundred votives flickered down the table reflecting and bouncing off the mirrors and acrylic chairs (last used at one of Obama’s state dinners!) We covered the tables with fifty-two mirrors made of 4 x 4 squares onto which our calligrapher wrote the guest's names to indicate their place setting. To continue with the icy modern look, we printed the menu on clear velum and served the amuse in an ice bowl. To complete the room, the tables were flooded with white orchids of varying heights. Truly a night to remember!
