WeddingWire DMV’s Ask the Pros event brought engaged couples, family, and friends from across the DC/Maryland/Virginia region together for an afternoon of wedding information and inspiration at Hyatt Regency Tysons Corner Center. While guests toasted their upcoming nuptials, Hyatt treated everyone to incredible dishes like seared diver scallops with Malaysian chili celery tarter, braised short rib with parsnip puree, and tomato cauliflower panna cotta with black quinoa, herbs, and flowers. Amphora Bakery and Fluffy Thoughts Cakes provided delectable desserts including gold glitter cake pops, mini cupcakes, cake squares, lemon bars, and macarons. Read on for a glimpse into the event, with images captured by Tania Hossain Photography.
Not only did guests enjoy tasty bites and beverages, but they also had all of their wedding questions answered by a panel of local wedding professionals! James, of Hyatt Regency Tysons Corner Center; Maryam, of Maryam Flowers; Ashlee, of Ashlee Virginia Events; and Marc of Washington Talent Agency provided expert advice and brilliant wedding planning insight. Thank you to our incredible panelists for such a fun-filled and informative afternoon!
Once the panel ended, everyone headed upstairs for an unexpected surprise – champagne, additional sweets, and a mock wedding setup! Gold chiavari chairs, tablescapes by Party Rentals, flowers by Maryam Flowers, music by Washington Talent Agency, and a dance floor set the stage for an exquisitely designed mock reception. An adjacent ceremony room was even set with seating so that guests were able to envision a full wedding experience in the space. Guests mixed and mingled while exploring the details, chatted 1:1 with the panelists, relaxed on the beautiful terrace, and even toured the bridal suite and guest rooms.
A huge thank you to everyone who attended, and to our amazing partners! If you’d like to find out about future events or learn more about getting involved with the WeddingWire Community, you can reach out to WeddingWire Community Manager Jamie at firstname.lastname@example.org.
