Prost to the Newlyweds…

A chance Halloween meeting, at a Capitol Hill dive bar, brought Leslie and Adam together. Little did they know that very spot would eventually serve as the site of their wedding rehearsal dinner just a few years later. 

Both avid travelers, this happy couple planned a European getaway, which included a stop in Munich to celebrate a few days of fun at Oktoberfest - a spot Adam decided was perfect for a proposal. And thus, the idea for #coxtoberfest was born. 

During their Fall wedding, we transported Leslie & Adam’s loved ones to their own personal Oktoberfest tent right here at St. Francis Hall, in Washington, DC.

Their wedding day was filled with nods to German tradition. A much tastier version of the "log-cutting ceremony" with their cake, a mini-barrel tapping ceremony to officially start the reception, an Oompah band playing cocktail hour and a bridal party decked out in traditional German fashion.

Having been fortunate enough to spend two Oktoberfests in Munich ourselves, planning a reprise at home for Leslie & Adam’s wedding day was a truly unforgettable experience! 

My husband and I have said many times over the past year that hiring Katelyn was probably the single best decision we made in planning our wedding, and probably the best value too. She is highly organized, friendly, responsive, and professional, but also goes above and beyond to make sure our wishes and personalities are reflected in her results. I highly recommend Katelyn, in fact I would give more than 5 stars if possible, and will hopefully find an excuse to work with her myself again soon!
