Beth & Darryl got married - in the midst of Rolling Thunder!

Beth and Darryl got married this past Sunday - during the Memorial Day Weekend. For anyone who lives in this area, you know that Rolling Thunder descends on Washington DC every Memorial Day for their Convention and their demonstration on the Mall. They come for a noble cause - to remember all of the Veterans who lost their lives for America, and to fight for current Veterans who rely on the Government for financial and Healthcare assistance. And for those of you who don't know, Rolling Thunder is a LARGE group of bikers - I may be wrong on this - I don't think everyone has to be a Veteran, but maybe they do. No matter, when you see the sheer numbers, it's staggering. It's funny because the Church that I attend is on East Capitol Street. The bikers go together to meet downtown the morning of the demonstration, and they pass by our Church! On Rolling Thunder days, we have silent prayer for 20 minutes while the bikes pass!

So, back to my wedding. Beth & Darryl had their wedding at the Historic 6th & I Synagogue. We were there on May 20th as well. You can scroll down to find the other post (about Deb & Marc). It's a really beautiful Synagogue. The photographers were Bill & Marie Piaseci - who are so cool, and were so great to work with! We had a picture session, rehearsal and Ketubah signing, all before the Ceremony began! It was a busy day ;-) After the Ceremony, the couple headed to the Jefferson Memorial for pictures.

The Reception was at the Crystal City Hyatt - the headquarters for Rolling Thunder last weekend. They had taken over the hotel! Well, everywhere except our ballroom! Beth & Darryl are Jewish, so we had all of the traditional things going on, including the Ha Motzi, the Horah and the Mezinkah Dance (which is done when the youngest child marries). Their family and friends were actually very cool. They really knew how to have a good time. Every chance they got, they were up dancing to the tunes of NightSong - a great band, by the way. Beth looked stunning - Kelley at FaceMode did her makeup, and Melanie Medeiros did her hair in a gorgeous Jackie O flip.

Beth & Darryl are great - they have very good senses of humor, and they LOVE the Mets! They were introduced at the Reception to "Meet the Mets"!! I thought that was hilarious! And their cake topper was Mr. & Mrs. Met :-) .... All of the guests enjoyed the party, and so did I. Beth and Darryl capped it off with a Candy Bar - which the guests devoured!

Thanks Beth and Darryl for letting Serendipity be apart of your day! I will post pictures when I get some :-)
