With February being Romance Month at Capella Hotels & Resorts, love is in the air and I’m excited to share with you an insider look into the recent marriage of Michael & Kym at Capella Washington, DC! I can’t think of a more romantic destination to exchange wedding vows than during a rooftop sunset in the heart of historic Georgetown.
For the full story, I arranged to sit down with our Wedding & Event Specialist, Elisabeth Thomas. Her insight and storytelling captivated me and I couldn’t help but to share it with you all! The bride to be arrived at Capella D.C. without any idea that her fiancé had planned an intimate wedding ceremony on the rooftop with their immediate family, followed by a catered reception in our luxurious Presidential Suite. She thought the two of them were just exchanging vows with an officiant on the rooftop. Instead, the groom surprised her with some of his and her favorite things; family, friends, Calla lilies, champagne and layered vanilla & chocolate cake!
Elisabeth worked exclusively with the groom to make sure every detail came together perfectly. One of Elisabeth’s favorite moments was the mother-of-the-bride surprise arrival as Kym was getting ready. Elisabeth mentioned that the best time to organize a surprise like this is always before the bride puts on her makeup – there will certainly be tears! Another special moment were the Calla lily bouquets, Kym’s favorite flower, which were arranged around the Presidential Suite reception along with canapés and cocktails that made for a scrumptious celebration. I get the chills just thinking about how special and loved Kym must have felt upon discovering these details.
This story is dear to my heart because it marks the first rooftop wedding love story at Capella D.C since opening in March, 2013. If you happen to be planning your anniversary, birthday celebration, Valentine’s Day, or your own Georgetown Wedding, I know you will love and appreciate the outstanding attention that Elisabeth and our service professionals will provide to you every step of the way. In fact, for those of you considering a romantic getaway in the Nation’s Capital, I would like to invite you to review our specials and experiences available Valentine’s Day Weekend! Might I also suggest a romantic dinner for two at The Grill Room on Valentine’s Day, featuring a secret love potion intermezzo to kick off the 4-course menu?
