On a peaceful, sightly rainy day in May, Micky and Keith tied the knot in front of a beautiful rock waterfall at 2491 Restaurant. The day started a little crazy, but everything came together and the ceremony and reception were perfect. Leis were combined into the ceremony and both Micky and Keith gave there parents leis to celebrate Micky's Hawaiian heritage. Micky made some amazing flower cones filled with fresh rose petals for guests to throw as the bride and groom walked down the aisle as husband and wife for the first time. The cocktail hour was moved inside due to the rain and combined with the reception, yet guests still enjoyed hors d'oeuvres and drinks into the night. Instead of a traditional cake, cupcakes were on a tiered display with a bride and groom cake topper. The day was amazing and beautiful despite the rain. Congratulations to Micky and Keith!

Testimonial From the Bride:
"We planned a small scale wedding at a high-end restaurant in Falls Church, VA called 2941. With all of our DIY elements, we knew we would need help setting up on the day. Kristina was such a delight to work with, very professional, and well organized as our wedding "day of coordinator". From the minute we first met with her, Kristina was helpful in the months leading up to our wedding and I was very confident that she understood my "vision" for the day. She had done her own research of our venue so that she would be comfortable with the layout and know the flow for our event. Despite a few weather glitches, Kristina coordinated with the venue staff and set up every detail for our ceremony outside on the terrace. She also managed all our ceremony music using iTunes on our laptop. Furthermore, Kristina helped set up our centerpieces and cupcakes for the reception and transitioned elements from the ceremony outside to the reception space inside. Overall, Kristina's wedding day services are a great value for the price and matched perfectly with our intimate modern wedding. We would recommend Kristina to anyone who needs wedding day or other private events services."
