Crush and tequila bars, matching gold Air Jordans, and a cascading bouquet were other highlights.

Lindsay and Scott were set up by his roommate’s mom, and a couple of years later he popped the question in a rose garden in Amsterdam. They married in a small civil ceremony at the DC War Memorial, then hosted religious nuptials and a reception a year later.

Reserving the wedding band, they say, was the first planning decision they made. “Our primary goal was maximizing time on the dance floor,” says Lindsay. Servers passed mini hot dogs as guests exited the ceremony on the way to cocktail hour with food stations and passed hors d’oeuvres. She says the crush and tequila bars were a hit and that her favorite detail of the day was the matching gold Air Jordans she presented to her groom and their ring bearer. The custom harlequin dance floor, says Scott, perfectly complemented the sleek white-and-glass venue. Instead of a cake-cutting, the couple offered an array of passed desserts on the dance floor, including boozy slush pouches, custom cookies, ice-cream sandwiches, funfetti cake pops, and apple-cider doughnuts.
