A Magical night of love is how we would describe the Jacri and Marquita MGM National Harbor wedding. Jacari and Marquita understood the challenges of planning a wedding during the pandemic. Like many couples, that was not going to get in their way. Wisteria with a variety of shades of purples along with white and silver led the design process for this romantic wedding.
Since MGM National Harbor was hosting their wedding, the couple used “All in” as their motto. It gave a nod to the 135,000 square feet of gaming space the couple and guests used following the wedding.
As wedding planners in DC we realize couples have faced a great deal navigating the pandemic. Marquita and Jacri contacted us July 2020 for partial wedding planning services and decor. We certainly were excited to head back for another MGM wedding experience.
Our couple selected a few vendors they wanted to work with and asked us to bring onboard the remaining team. Because of COVID-19 our design process required us to use more space that we would normally use. Jacari and Marquita asked that we ensure tables were properly spaced apart and that guests did not feel confined in the reception area.
Guests arrived and where ushered into Salon A of the Grand Ballroom for the ceremony. Captivated by 24ft ceilings and beautiful chandeliers, the scene was set as Marquita walked down the aisle with both of her father figures escorting her down the aisle.
Shortly after, guests were treated to cocktails, black truffle deviled eggs, petite beef wellington, and few other delicious hors d’Oeuvres. Following cocktail hour on the terrace, it was time to celebrate Marquita and Jacri as newlyweds in the grand ballroom.
From herb-crusted petite filet to a 4-teir custom ombre style wedding cake, our couple and their guests were treated to a night of good food and fun. Here are a few of the images from Jacari and Marquita MGM National Harbor wedding.
