Today is my Anniversary!  I still remember the magical ceremony, and gorgeous reception we had  – held in Washington, DC at the Carnegie Institution for Science.

Favorite Moments: There are a few moments that stand out 1) Walking down the aisle with my parents and seeing so many of my family members and close friends smiling back, 2) Standing under the Chuppah with my husband Dave, 3) Finally, this isn’t a moment but I loved that we had dancing throughout the night to make it a truly festive occasion.

Many thanks to all of the Wedding Professionals that made our day so special.  A few of whom have now become great friends – Shelly Bagdasian – B Floral Event Design, Kate Burke – Kate Fine Art Photography, DJ David Orlando and Jessica Orlando – Orlando Entertainment

Instead of gifts, my husband and I have decided to take a trip every year for our Anniversary.  We are heading the Bethany Beach this year!  The “office” will be closed until next Tuesday.
