A wedding in Washington, DC is exciting, and not just for the couple planning the event! Your guests will be thrilled to be invited, and many will make a vacation out of your wedding weekend.
Imagine giving each guest a customized map (including directions) of the whens and wheres of your wedding? With everyone using smart phones and toting laptops as they travel, having online access to “where to go” and “when to be there” is huge!
I came across Wedding Mapper and thought it was a really practical and cool tool and had to share it.
Users can create a free map that includes the locations of everything going on during their wedding. Couples can also map their favorite restaurants, shopping, attractions, and even where they were engaged. Using Wedding Mapper, you’ll be able share your city and your wedding day at the same time!
Designed by the same architect who created the Washington Monument, the former US General Post Office building is now the Hotel Monaco. It’s located in Penn Quarter, a really great, vibrant part of town and right by the Verizon Center, so your guests will be close to all the action.
The Hotel Monaco’s large ballroom has a lot of character. Once the Post Office’s Library, it has beautiful natural light, gorgeous pillars, and graceful archways. It’s a really special venue for a wedding.
When you enter the space, it can be hard to imagine where a DJ would set up, have the best sound, and keep the speakers as inconspicuous as possible. I snuck some pictures of our wireless Bose speakers set up in the Hotel Monaco ballroom at a recent event, and, as you can see, they blend perfectly with the space! These speakers create a perfectly balanced sound throughout dinner for the music and announcements.
We’ve been waiting for this one! Remember a few weeks ago when I spun the music for the Washingtonian Best Of Happy Hour? Well, ever since then, we’ve been waiting, tickets in hand, for the main event. The Washingtonian Best Of Party benefiting the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society.
The best Washington has to offer was there in full force. 50 of the 100 restaurants that won this year had booths set up, and believe me, the food was amazing. We walked around sampling…until we got a call from the babysitter! Everyone was OK, but we had to call the night short. Which was a good thing considering how much we had already eaten!
Thanks again to Washingtonian for asking us to deejay the Best Of Happy Hour and then inviting us to this event! It is clearly the best food event of the year!
