Kirsten and Matt met at a work event. Being ever the gentleman, Matt waited until his last day on the job to ask Kirsten out. When it came to their wedding, they knew they wanted an utterly elegant celebration with only their nearest and dearest. So on the first day of summer (also the day before Kirsten's parents' 40th wedding anniversary!), the two tied the knot in a formal wedding at The Ritz-Carlton, Tysons Corner in McLean, Virginia.

Why is it helpful for couples to participate in an Etiquette Class?
All eyes are on our couples throughout their wedding day - not only from families and friends (and possibly their future spouse's boss), but also captured for life by their photographers and videographers. Being well-versed in wedding, social and fine dining etiquette not only allows couples to present themselves well on their wedding day, it allows them to relax and enjoy every moment. As in life, when we know what is expected of us and how-to do something, we relax.
