Devon’s maid of honor, Trish, says it best, "when Devon laid her eyes on Ihab, she knew that he was “the one”. When Ihab proposed, he took Devon to Fogo De Chao (Washington, DC). They strolled down to the reflecting pool and before she knew it, Ihab was down on one knee asking Devon to marry him! After their reservation, Ihab planned a surprise for friends and family to be there to celebrate.
As the big day approached, we watched the weather forecast change from bright and sunny to dreary and wet. Even with all of the stress of the wedding day, Devon remained so positive, even with a less than stellar weather projection. It poured while she was getting her hair done, it poured while the guys were getting ready, and continued to pour up until just before the first look. After some wedding planner prayers and a few mimosas (for our lovely bride), the rain FINALLY went away and gave Devon and Ihab the most beautiful bright rainbow for their first look. They met outside at Turf Valley's gorgeous arbor that is set below the most stunning weeping willows for the big reveal.
After the first look, they were able to take a trip down the aisle for the most heartfelt ceremony by Devon's aunt, and then were pronounced married! The reception that followed was nothing short of spectacular. Everyone, from the bride and groom, the their 80 year old grandparents, were out on the dance floor until the very end of the night!
Their evening ended with a romantic sparkler exit for the ages!
Congrats Devon and Ihab! We can’t wait to watch your little family grow!
