A Very Washington D.C. Wedding

The wedding last night was AMAZING! I mean, check out their church:


SO epic. The Washington National Cathedral is insanely beautiful and SO big! I felt like I was back in Prague looking at the Prague Castle or something.

Love it. Here I am with my handsome blue-eyed date :)


Matt and I wandered around the outside of the cathedral before the ceremony exploring, and while we were on the side of the building near a back entrance, a nice car pulled up — and look who got out!



The bride! Isn’t Hilary beautiful? :) We were the first ones to see her — I loved the sneak peak!

The inside of the church was beautiful, too. Since it was in the National Cathedral, there were a ton of random tourists gawking during the wedding, hehe.



Congrats again Hilary and Brent! Wishing you a lifetime of happiness together :)

The beautiful weather continued into today!


This morning, I headed into Georgetown to meet up up with fellow healthy living blogger Theodora and her friend Tamsin for a running date :)


Aren’t Tamsin’s bright yellow sunglasses the most awesome things ever? I want.

Theodora lives in NYC and is town visiting friends this weekend. It was wonderful meeting her as we’ve been email/Twitter buddies for awhile now :) Her story is very inspiring — she’s lost 50 pounds over the past couple years!


She said she was tired of being unhappy and uncomfortable with herself, so she decided it was time to make a change. I am so impressed with how far she’s come — now she’s training for her first marathon!

Theodora had to run 10 miles today, so Tamsin ran the first 3 with us, I stayed on for another 3 (we ran the 6 miles in just under an hour), and then Theodora finished the last 4 on her own. It was a great run and fun chatting with both of them :)

I heart Georgetown.


And now I’m off to a friend’s for place dinner! I’m in charge of an appetizer — I’m thinking my Hummus Guacamole… :)

Enjoy the rest of your weekends, friends!

    Holy, VIP – how do you snag the national cathedral for your *wedding*?! Impressive. ;) And gorgeous.

  20. 22

    Fun fact about the National Cathedral! One of the grotesques (those carvings at that top of the towers) is a replica of Darth Vader’s head! The church did a contest for kids to design one of the carvings during some construction and that was the winning design! awesome.

    also, there is a seriously great reenactment by cathedral staff of the Easter litany done with peeps!

    I finally discovered this posting!! Thanks for letting me know it existed ;) Great National Cathedral pics, and so fun that you got a VIP sneak peek before the wedding!
