Liliahn + Ibrahim || NYE || {D.C.}

One word to describe this New Years Eve wedding would be "epic"! From the venue, to the reception details..this wedding had it all! On a side note, I'd like to share a little about these two, because I like to brag on my clients=) Liliahn is the Senior Director of teams marketing and business operations for the National Basketball Association(NBA). Ibrahim is a M.B.A graduate of Harvard, and a Vice President of investments at Landmark Partners. You can actually read more about their engagement notice in The New York Times! So I was more than thrilled when Liliahn asked us to film her D.C. wedding on New Years Eve! This was our very first holiday wedding and this event will be one to remember! I've been to a lot of hotels in my 10 years of filming weddings, and  the Mandarin Oriental, DC  is right up there with brands such as the W Hotels! Ibrahim and Liliahn had their "first look" at the top of the penthouse suite overlooking the National Park. The views from the suite and the amenities provided were absolutely stunning. The guests were servedt traditional chinese/mandarin cuisine during the cocktail hour...sooo delicious!  Of course the best part of the night was the counting down to 2012! What a party, and what a way to welcome in the New Year!  All the best to Ibrahim and Liliahn, may your marriage be blessed!!
