Meredith & Bill | Intimate Backyard wedding | American Ice Co. | Washington, DC

Meredith and Bill did something almost no one does, but that makes tons of sense and works beautifully – they had a two-parter wedding. The ceremony took place at Bill’s family home in Bethesda, with some very personal toasts and champagne and hors d’oeuvres following. Then the whole party picked up and moved to American Ice Co. off U Street, where the rest of their friends and family were waiting. The two-parter lets the personal be very, very personal but the party be nonetheless bitchin’. Meredith and Bill:

There was a line in their ceremony about “accepting you”, but Bill heard “except if you”.

Everyone gathered in the living room for some very touching toasts.
