Wedding 3 of 4

Our next wedding adventure was to the Nation's Capitol! We both love DC and always say that we could live there...especially when we are there walking around. We flew on Friday and took the Metro from the airport. On Saturday morning, Leah came downtown and we finally made it around the Republican party march that was going on near the Capitol. We ate breakfast at a quaint little diner type place in East Capitol and then walked around Eastern Market. People set-up tents and sell jewelry, art, fruite, veggies, etc. I had gone there with Leah a few years back and had to go back. Of course, I didn't buy anything...just looked. The wedding was at 6 and black tie optional, so we got all snazzed up and headed out on the town. It was held at the Andrew Mellon Auditorium which is on Constitution Ave. and right in the heart of government buildings. The groom is a good friend of Adam's from law school. He is from the DC area. The whole evening was so gorgeous! It was definitely the fanciest wedding I'd been to. I loved how grand everything was. Ken (the groom) clerked for a federal judge on the DC circuit this past year and so the judge performed the ceremony. When it came time for him to pronounce them husband and wife...he got to say the laws of the United States of America rather than like by the State of Illinois. The band was amazing and performed an acoustic set during dinner. Supposedly one of them was on American Idol. They also performed both Boom Boom Pow and I Got a Feeling by the Black Eyed Peas and well! Adam enjoyed seeing U of C friends he hadn't for awhile. I have to share pics since it was so un-believable! Enjoy....Rhandi
