Wedding: Katie + Alex

September 19th, 2011

We are pleased to present to you the wedding of Katie Hammerer and Alex Harris, held early August 2011. This couple was such a delight to work with, making our job that much more fun. We hope you enjoy the outcome of this fabulous event as much as we do.

The reception was held at River Farm located on the beautiful waterfront of Alexandria, Virginia. The River farm serves as Headquarters to the American Horticulture Society and is the perfect setting for a bride who wants it all; waterfront views, luscious gardens, and a historic plantation right outside our Nation’s Capitol.

The bride chose the colors of white, vibrant violet and a soft butter yellow, which perfectly complemented the greenery of the venue and the vibrant personality of the couple themselves.  The flowers consisted of roses and were beautifully displayed in both round and rectangular vases.

Beverage urns of Spiked Lemonade and water were placed near the entrance of the venue for parched guests to quench their thirsts. There was also a full service bar for guests to visit throughout the night. During cocktail hour hors d’oeuvres were passed including mini crab cakes, bourbon glazed tenderloin, sun-gold cherry tomatoes, tenderloin + asparagus wraps, and an Asian style chicken + coriander dumpling.

The Bride and Groom wanted to keep the reception and cocktail hour fun so a dance floor made for moving and a Corn Hole set decorated with wedding rings + their wedding date, were brought in for their guest’s enjoyment.  Following cocktail hour was the seated dinner. The first course was a refreshing summer salad of baby spinach and ruby red strawberries dressed with an herbed balsamic vinaigrette. The entrée was honey roasted chicken with sage & walnuts or the vegetarian option of balsamic charred corn ravioli.

Following dinner guest were invited to join the bride and groom for the cutting of the cake. The white and violet cake was a custom made by our Executive Pastry Chef and was topped with vibrant flowers.

The outcome of this august wedding was absolutely breath taking. Thank you to Connor Studios for sharing your beautiful photos with us and thank you to Katie and Alex for letting us be apart of your special day. Here’s to a lifetime of love and happiness!

Congratulations Katie + Alex!!
