Bethesda, Maryland

“We survived many lives, and many are still to come.” Lynn sent this to me in an email a few days before her wedding.

Lynn and Paul were married under gorgeous blue skies in the backyard of their Bethesda, Maryland, home. Lynn looked stunning as she walked down the aisle escorted by her daughter Sky. One of the most magical moments of the day happened as Paul got down on one knee and said a separate set of vows to Sky, then gifted her a necklace. There was not a dry eye in the place, including mine.

Lynn is a Washington D.C. event planner, and she transformed their backyard into a beautiful, chic reception venue with colored LED accents and twinkle lights that graced the perfectly placed clear tent. The food was amazing, and Lynn and Paul were generous enough to provide all of their vendors the same exquisite meal their guests experienced. The bar and dance floor were bustling all night. The D.J. played the perfect mix of music, perhaps a little too loud as the police showed up and gave everyone a gentle “keep it down” warning.

It was a perfect Spring wedding, and my first wedding of 2015. I can’t imagine a better event to kick off the year.
