Our Story

In August 2012, we met while working as servers at a local Italian restaurant, Lavagna, on Capitol Hill in Washington, DC. We bonded over world travels, the DC job search and developed a healthy rivalry as co-workers. Our relationship unfolded as we explored the city's neighborhoods, restaurants and came to call the District home. We are so excited to host our wedding in the city where we met and fell in love and share it with those who have loved and supported us along the way!

We will be updating our website as our big day approaches. Check back for updated information in the coming months.
