Real Weddings: Nicole + Ray

One of the highlights of 2014 was planning the wedding of one of my close friends! My friends Nicole and Ray (collectively known as “RayCo”), tied the knot last spring on Nicole’s actual birthday! After researching various venues, Nicole and Ray selected the Crystal Gateway Marriott in Arlinton, VA. Their cherry blossom themed wedding included touches of pink, purple and silver hues. Their amazing vendor team went above and beyond to make their wedding day spectacular! Nicole and Ray’s guests are still raving about the fun time they had celebrating with RayCo! Rarely do I have the opportunity to be a guest at a wedding. I am fortunate enough to have an awesome team that allowed me to be my husband’s date for RayCo’s wedding! RayCo, thank you for trusting the GLWE team with your most special day! May your union continue to be blessed!
