Welcome Laura and Garden Updates May 20, 2010

Joining us for the month of June is our new GMU intern, Laura. Although she will be focusing her attention on Sweet 16s and other teen events, she will be assisting us in a variety of other events as well. Please join me in welcoming her to the Hilton Garden Inn Fairfax team!

While I was out snapping photos of Laura, I got a few more of the garden as well. The impatiens are in and doing well and the vines on the arbor are growing in thickly. It's been a beautiful spring season so far, just perfect for our April and May weddings! Stay tuned for more updates as we get our summer plantings!

Timeless Romance: Jennifer and Joseph, September 26, 2009

Jennifer and Joseph had a way of staying positive and turning every challenge into an opportunity. As you can see, rather than let their rainy day wedding be a downer, they seized the opportunity to capture some of the most remarkable photos!

Because the cold and heavy rain prohibited us from holding the ceremony outside, we set the ceremony inside the ballroom. The guests are eagerly awaiting the arrival of the bride!

The mirror made a beautiful backdrop for their exchange of vows.

Afterward, the guests enjoyed the cocktail hour while the bridal party took a few photos in the lobby.

Back inside the ballroom for the first dance, the mirror made an elegant backdrop. They also enjoyed the garter toss.

Jennifer and Joseph found time to steal away for a few moments of privacy in the garden under the umbrella.

Best wishes to Jennifer and Joseph for a long and happy marriage!
