Winery Inspired Glam Wedding at Hotel Washington DC


 Ilana and Ben met in 2009  while attending Grambling State University.  Ben, with a few of his line brothers, wanted to know if the  track team would be in town for an upcoming Alpha party.  Somehow between talking about the Alpha party and Ilana’s track practice, Ben and Ilana engaged in a deep  conversation.  They both sat in front of the café for what felt like a few  minutes, but turned out to be hours.

The two kept in  touch and in 2018 Ilana moved to Washington, D.C. for a  job opportunity. Shortly thereafter, Ben and Ilana both started dating  and tied the knot four years later. See more from these college sweethearts’ stunning wedding day captured by Tunji Studios.

The Ceremony

Our client considers herself a wine sommelier, lol.  The inspiration for their Washington DC wedding was “A Day at the Vineyard”.  We incorporated floral runners down the aisle and adorned the Chuppah with greenery and fresh blooms.
