Hay-Adams Hotel Wedding in Washington DC | Hailey & John
Hailey and John’s Hay-Adam’s Hotel wedding in Washington DC was incredible and had one of the most breath taking views of DC I’ve ever seen!
John proposed on April Fools Day – which while neither of them are jokesters, made it interesting to tell people. Back in February of 2016, Hailey was traveling for work and John asked Hailey’s parents to dinner at one of their favorite restaurants, Linwoods, to ask permission to marry her. They made plans to go ring shopping at J. Brown Jewelers together in a few weeks, and John was EXTREMELY sketchy the coming weeks. The morning of April 1st, a Friday, John said he would bring home takeout for dinner so Hailey didn’t have to cook. She was THRILLED, and in he walked at about 4:30 with a GIANT cooler and a bag of groceries. She was promptly EXTREMELY annoyed thinking she now has to cook dinner, as John starts unloading groceries. He pulled out lobsters, a bag of french fries (this is a family tradition of Hailey’s that John loves), a bottle of champagne and our favorite ice creams. She started prepping the lobsters for dinner and he said he had a question for me. Hailey turned around and he was down on one knee and asked me to make him the happiest man in the world. She said yes and after telling her parents, we tried to share the news with a few friends, none of whom believed us because it was April Fools Day!
