Sophie and Ryan were married in Washington, D.C. on a beautiful spring day. Preparations began in their suites at the Hay Adams.
Sophie shares, “I had so much fun getting ready in the morning with the bridesmaids. It was nice getting our hair and makeup done while having mimosas! It was truly a special moment that I’ll never forget.”
The ceremony took place at Saint Mary Mother of God. Sophie says, “It was amazing to be surrounded by all our friends and family. We were beaming with happiness the entire day!
One of my favorite moments that day was walking down the aisle with my dad and seeing Ryan at the altar. I was so happy and excited, that it brought tears to my eyes! It was such a sweet and emotional moment for us and I’ll never forget it!
A special thanks to our parents for making the day so special for us.”
Ryan shares, “My favorite part of the day was when the doors opened and I saw Sophie walk down the aisle. She was the most beautiful woman I’d ever seen. It felt like I had tunnel vision and the rest of the church went away. I had been nervous that morning but I felt totally calm and happy when I saw her.”
Sophie shares, “The moment we saw the Top of the Hay at the Hay Adams we knew it was the perfect place for our reception! The venue is lined with floor to ceiling windows, so the room is filled with lots of light. We loved the balcony that wraps around the room that overlooks the White House and the Washington Monument. The Hay Adams is such an elegant and magical place that we knew we wouldn’t be able to find anything else like it.”
Congratulations Sophie and Ryan!
