The Ronald Reagan Building and International Trade Center, located on historic Pennsylvania Avenue in the heart of the nation’s capital, is preparing to host the 2009 WeddingChannel.com and Us Weekly Celebrity-Inspired Dream Wedding for local couple Van Ngo and Eric Oberly, on Sunday, September 27.

The couple, both employed by the US Patent Office, became engaged in October 2008. When the couple discovered they had won the competition, the Ronald Reagan Building and International Trade Center was their first choice as a venue. The wedding will take place in the Pavilion, a spectacular octagonal-shaped room with an abundance of natural light, 54 foot ceilings, maple and marble floors, and balconies overlooking the Woodrow Wilson Plaza and Pennsylvania Avenue.

"I am really excited to see how the reception venue will look once its all put together. I am totally blown away by the ideas Janet has thought up for us and I cannot wait to share it with our family and friends! I had sent her [Janet Flowers] several photos of centerpieces that I loved and told her that our color scheme consisted of warm fall colors including red, orange, and gold. She put together these big centerpieces that were lush with flowers and greenery, including tangerine orchids, curly willow branches and cherry love roses." The total floral budget $28,000!

Ngo even got a chance to work with Beyonce's trainer in New York City.

So she would look absolutely FAB in her $3,900 Vera Wang gown!
