One couple hosts a formal soirée full of rich purple hues at Meridian House, one of Washington, D.C.'s most elegant wedding venues.

Ken sent Katherine on a scavenger hunt the night he proposed, leading her from one special location to the next until the trip ended inside a room at the St. Regis hotel in Washington, D.C. There she found Ken on one knee. "After such an evening, after so many years, what could I do but say yes?" Katherine says. Photo: Maria Vicencio Photography
