Jamie and Ralph met in Florence, Italy while Jamie was studying abroad during the spring semester of her junior year and Ralph was reuniting with a childhood friend to open an American Diner. The two started dating in the spring of 2005.
After many obstacles, plane tickets, road trips, heartache, and a lot of faith, Jamie moved to D.C. in the summer of 2011. Ralph, having recently opened Acqua al 2 on Capitol Hill, was living above the Eastern Market restaurant in the same space where the two would eventually get married.
Jamie, a teacher at Sidwell Friends School (Ralph’s alma mater), and Ralph, co-owner of Acqua al 2, Harold Black, and Ghibellina, were married by Rabbi Shira Stutman of Sixth and I Synagogue and Judge Patricia Wynn, a life long family friend. The ceremony was followed by a cocktail hour in the speakeasy bar Harold Black, and the reception was thrown in the same intimate space that the ceremony was held. In lieu of the cake cutting tradition, the two announced the gender of their baby with cupcakes for each guest– pink icing inside!
