The Tasting!

Our tasting went SUPER well (and it fell on our 100 day mark).

The day started with a bit of a hiccup, a.k.a. I was lost in Dupont circle, crying my eyes out while driving-- and my half hour drive turned into a 1.5 hour drive. I was so late and so embarrassed, but they were beyond accommodating and assured me that I wasn't a complete jerk for showing up a little late.

As soon as we sat down in the room they poured me a glass of wine and we got down to business. We picked out linens and we ate a ridiculous amount of food (scallops, salads, sirloin, crab cakes, veggies to name a few). The food was incredible and I had a fabulous time tasting my options.

Seriously, I'm dreaming about their sirloins as we speak.

After the tasting, we toured the grounds one more time and may or may not have changed ballrooms (hey, now that we've got our color schemes down it's easier to make a decision).

Mr. Woodley Park's catholic, so we can't get married outside, but we're going to take some of our pictures right there. It's a beautiful setting and it's only going to look better in October when the leaves are changing.

I love it, I love it, I love it!
