Washington Wedding Day Spring/Summer 2024

For their 12th anniversary, John and Talysa renewed their vows fountain-side at The Hall at Fauntleroy in the presence of loved ones, the most important of those being their two young sons, Noah and Cameron, and the bride’s grandmother. The intimate ceremony was led by Cherise Klosner of Another One Ties The Knot. Desiree Jones of DSquared Hospitality Company, which runs The Hall at Fauntleroy, recalls, “We knew the day would be elegant and sweet, but we weren’t expecting how emotional of a moment it would be for the children to see their parents dressed up in wedding attire and verbalizing their commitments to each other.”

Originally high school sweethearts, the couple exchanged personal vows and reflected on their 17 years together as they stood in the courtyard among a select few. Then, they moved into the Emerald Room to continue the celebration. Floral details permeated the room, from the whimsical garden signage to a hanging floral installation of carnations, a sweetheart table enveloped in baby’s breath and a youthful purse bouquet crafted by AE Events & Design. Tables featured textured linens and bursts of white-and-green florals. A decadent dinner and dancing followed, rounding out a romantic, love-filled day.
