Monesha and Jonathan in Washington, DC

At the reception, held inside the Meridian House, instead of a traditional sit-down dinner, R&R Catering set up food stations in different rooms, including a "Nibble Through the Night" station offering Thai chicken satay and lobster, mango, and avocado salad on Asian spoons. "The stations were a big hit," says Monesha. "Guests enjoyed choosing what they ate—there was something for everyone."

Bright flower arrangements and candles were placed throughout the rooms of the house.
