Megan and Jack’s Wedding at Washington DC’s APhA / Jul 13, 2012
Ah, sweet, ya’ll, it’s Friday and we’ve got another fantastic wedding to share with you before you head off to the beach this weekend! Megan & Jack recently married at the American Pharmacists Association, an incredible historic stone mansion right off Constitution Avenue. We didn’t even know that they held weddings there! Now that we do, you can bet we’ll be singing their praises. They held their ceremony out on the expansive front steps that afternoon (& thoughtfully provided free sunglasses and lime-aid to their lucky guests), cocktails were on the sweet shaded side terrace and dinner up on the APhA’s roof top deck that boasts stunning expansive views of the Lincoln memorial, the Washington memorial, the Potomac and oh, man, we could go on and on so instead why don’t we just show you. Afterward, check out their complete gallery, including some fun SnapHappy photobooth shots. The password is Megan’s maiden name and is case-sensitive.

Some favorite fab details:
You know you’ve set the tone for end-of-evening comments like, “Best wedding ever” when, following cocktail hour, your guests bypass their seats altogether in favor of the incredible views of the Capitol, Washington Monument, and Lincoln Memorial! But we get ahead of ourselves…
You were the second in line of our high-school sweetheart wedding blitz this Summer, but you were the first to have your first have your First Look at the front door of your childhood home where Jack would come and pick you up for dates, Megan! So sweet. And sexy, we have to admit. Especially with those killer Jimmy Choo’s and your gorgeous side slit dress. Doing your portraits at Constitution Gardens caused quit the stir we’re sure!
Your ring bearer Graydon nearly stole the show during your ceremony being about as cute as a little boy just hanging out in the middle of a wedding could be. It was so neat watching him alternately watch you intently and completely ignore the scene around him as he huddled closely to his mom’s legs, just a feet from where you were standing. You probably realized there was a chance of drive-by “encouragement” from those traveling along Constitution with a full view of your ceremony, but we doubt you thought you’d hear, “Don’t do it!” Yet you laughed while continuing with your vows.
What touching toasts you enjoyed, before with your parents Megan, and after dinner with your “best sisters” (a choice we personally applaud) offering joyfully tearful recollections of you both to help get your marriage off to the perfect start. We’re pretty sure DJ D-Mac had his hands full keeping the dance floor moving afterward given such incredibly mild weather that evening and that lounge you set up for your guests with views of downtown (not to mention the SnapHappy photo booth – more pics to come of that in another post!). Your wedding was sweet, joyous, crazy, sexy and sultry all rolled together. All in all, a wonderful evening, and we couldn’t be happier for you both. Congratulations!
