Muthoni and John | 11.10.12

Wedding Date: November 10, 2012
Location: Newton White Mansion, Mitchellville, MD
Guests: 175

How they met: In 2009, Muthoni Wambu was visiting Washington, DC from Greensboro, North Carolina, to participate in a wedding. One night, on the way to visit a friend, Wambu, wearing her lucky orange sweater, popped into an Irish pub, “The Dubliner,” to pass the time. There, she met John Kraal, who was visiting the US during a month-long vacation from his native country, the Netherlands, and engaged in hours of conversation before inviting him to visit her in North Carolina while still on vacation. Three days later, he did just that, and a friendship blossomed in the following months. Over the next three years, they emailed daily, Skyped every weekend, and crossed the Atlantic numerous times to see each other.

The proposal: On April 15th, 2011, after a lively evening filled with cupcakes, whiskey and spirited debate at Muthoni's home, John proposed in her kitchen. She returned with a very excited, “YES!” One year later, John obtained a visa and relocated to America.

The wedding: After a beautiful evening ceremony at Prince George’s County’s Newton White Mansion, guests enjoyed dinner, a split fare of filet mignon and rockfish, and cake provided by Uptown Catering. Muthoni, of Kenyan heritage, and John were presented with a traditional Kikuyu marriage ritual, welcoming the groom to the family, and a song complete with African drummers--a gift from Muthoni's father. Guests celebrated into the wee hours, and before leaving, were treated to Dutch caramel bites and traditional Kenyan cloth.


The honeymoon: Muthoni and John spent a memorable week in Waikiki, Hawaii, kayaking, snorkeling and hiking over lava rock.

Food and cake: Uptown Catering
Flowers and venue decorations: DaVinci Florists

[PHOTOS] Wedding: Jenna & Ashte | 6.9.12

Jenna and Ashte' were married on June 9, 2012, within two ceremonies, starting with a traditional Vietnamese ceremony that morning at the home of the bride's parents in Northern Virginia.

The ceremony consists of a customary gift exchange amongst all parties, but especially from the bride and groom's parents to the happy couple.



Just like that, we were off to the Ronald Reagan Building in Washington, DC for the American wedding ceremony.














The couple headed to their honeymoon, a tour across Italy, shortly thereafter. Congratulations you guys, may God bless you with many happy years to come!
