Ethereal Real Wedding of Ryan and Alex Steffen

January 31, 2018

 Making their dream wedding a reality

Alex and Ryan wanted an outdoor wedding ceremony and reception, but because of the timing of their engagement and their move up to NYC in August 2017, July was really the only month that would work.  With that in mind, they set out to find a venue that allowed them to bring the outdoors in.
The Westin Georgetown’s Promenade was the perfect canvas to create a garden-inspired fete, complete with air conditioning and hardwood floors!  Alex wanted the overall aesthetic to be soft, romantic and classic; something she could show her daughters in 20 years and not feel like it screamed “2017”.

That special touch…

Being the family-driven, DC locals that they are, Alex and Ryan made a point to incorporate personal details throughout the day.  The pens guests used to sign the guest book were pens Ryan had snagged from NYU at his orientation.
In lieu of favors, the couple made a donation to an organization close to their hearts.  And in a nod to the city of DC, guests were treated to soft pretzels from The Pretzel Bakery as they departed at the end of the night.
