Daniela & Faisal’s Conrad Hotel DC Wedding was a disco themed, micro-wedding perfection and was planned in just a few weeks, by DC’s Kaitlin of Cheers Darling Events. Set in the heart of the city at the modern Conrad Hotel, Daniela & Faisal (NYC natives) tied the knot with just 6 guests. Originally planning a larger celebration for the fall of 2020, the couple shifted gears and decided to go all in on a chic, colourful celebration for just their closest family and friends in Washington DC. Taking their wedding design to the next level with disco ball accents and blooms in a gorgeous palette of pinks, oranges and yellows, the day brought so much brightness to their November date, and was a perfect way to kick off their marriage in style.
Following an intimate first look on the rooftop of the Conrad, Daniela & Faisal took advantage of the city sights with their guests and headed to the Lincoln Memorial for photos. As the sun set, Faisal’s sister officiated the most heartfelt ceremony, incorporating cultural traditions from both families. Specifically from Daniela’s Bulgarian roots, the couple partook in a honey ceremony with both mothers. The first piece of bread is always salty as the difficulties that will arise in the family life of the young couple, and the second piece of bread, is dipped in honey to remind the newlyweds of the delights they will share in the future. Daniela & Faisal danced down the aisle during their processional, right over to the couple’s live stream and greeted their friends & family with champagne and appetizers before their intimate, candlelit dinner.
