FAVORITE LOCAL RESTAURANT: Fonda La Catrina in Georgetown
BEST “OMG I CAN’T BELIEVE THAT HAPPENED” WEDDING STORY: I was in the final prep for a wedding on one of the San Juan islands. The day before I headed out of town, I received a call from the caterer. One of the key elements of the food for the wedding was a roasted pig. The caterer was calling because the farm from which the pig was arriving was being raided by the FDA (as we were speaking) and we wouldn’t be able to get the pig, and not from any other farm on the island. The moment I got onto the island, we worked with the couple and the caterer for an alternate solution and were able to come up with a modified option that ended up being fantastic. Guests had no idea about the original pig plan and the couple embraced the story and talked about it during their speech. When the FDA is involved in your wedding, you have an awesome story to tell.

FAVORITE LOCAL RESTAURANT: I’ve never had a bad meal or night at Terra Plata on Capitol Hill.
BEST “OMG I CAN’T BELIEVE THAT HAPPENED” WEDDING STORY: About 15 minutes before a wedding started, the best man discovered he lost the wedding rings! We didn’t want the groom or bride to know just yet, so we all tried to play it cool. Every vendor and bridal party member started searching. We straight up missing-person-style combed the venue looking at the ground. I went up to the loft where the couple were hanging out and started poking around the room to see if the rings were tucked in furniture. The groom didn’t miss a beat and said, “He lost the rings didn’t he?” The jig was up. What is incredibly fortunate about the groom finding out is that he saw his best man empty his pockets on a counter, so we went to look through that pile and crumpled up inside a used napkin were the wedding rings. If I had gone up to that loft five minutes earlier to tidy up like I had planned, those rings would have been in the trash and possibly lost forever! Barf.
REYNOLDS OR GOSLING? It’s a real Sophie’s choice, but I’m going to go with Gosling.
