Real Weddings – Suzanne and Ryan (National Museum of Women in the Arts)

Suzanne and Ryan described their wedding theme as “Classic Romance” with a traditional ceremony at the Cathedral of St. Matthew the Apostle followed by an elegant reception at the National Museum of Women in the Arts. Suzanne and Ryan’s wedding included thoughtful details like gorgeous blush and white flower arrangements, a wedding cake with different fruit flavors on every tier and a great band with the gift of energizing the guests. A truly “Unforgettable” wedding day!

Favorite wedding detail?
Suzanne: “I loved everything! Each detail complimented the next and really tied the whole theme together. For example, guests could pull up a chair and sit at the bar, order a drink and watch people dance or relax in the lounge area on the contemporary furniture. I liked the idea of giving our guests a different experience at different places in the museum.

Ryan: “I loved the idea of doing wedding notes for our 1st, 5th and 10th wedding anniversaries as opposed to a traditional sign in book. I’m looking forward to reading some of the notes on our 1st Anniversary!

Wedding favors?
Our wedding favors were gourmet doughnuts from District Doughnut. We knew from the beginning that we wanted to do something edible rather than something material that most likely would never get used. We love their doughnuts and thought it would be a smart idea to send our guests home with a sweet treat after celebrating a romantic wedding.
