On Sunday, August 29, 1999, Kathy Clark and Bradley Rosenberg were united in marriage. This
wasn't your typical traditional ceremony, however, this wedding had a twist of drama. The couple bought
out the Kennedy Center theater to allow wedding guests the rare opportunity to attend a double feature.
Act one was a performance of the long-running who-dunit "Shear Madness," complete with cameos of the
couple in full costume. Act two starred the bride and groom in the official wedding ceremony onstage,
with former Virginia Lieutenant Governor Don Beyer officiating.
The performance and wedding were followed by an equally exciting reception as guests adjourned to the
rooftop terrace of the Kennedy Center. One of the main attractions was the entertainment-numerous
Vegas-style gambling and poker tables for all the guests to enjoy. Approximately 400 guests attended the
reception-many of whom are executives in the local technology industry. Guests included: Dyncorp Chair Dan Bannister with wife Paula, President and CEO of LCT, Inc. Doug Ingram and wife Cindy, President of Rand Construction Corp. Linda Rabbit, Doug and Eloise Poretz, the President of BTG Corporation Ed Bersoff and his wife, the President of Northern Virginia
Technological Council Bobbie Kilberg with husband William, George Mason University
President Alan Merten and wife Sally, and UUCOM owners Curtis Generous with wife Lou Scanlon.
To celebrate their honeymoon, the newlyweds purchased a huge sailboat on which they sailed for a month
around Tahiti. Even the cake reflected the couple's love for sailing as it was adorned with nautical
decorations that ran the gamut, from the anchor perched atop the highest tier, to the seashells and
fishing net tablecover-ing. The groom's cake was also decorated with a sailing scene.
Kathy is the owner of Landmark Systems and chairs the Northern Virginia Technology Council. Bradley works
as a consultant in the technology industry.

The ceremony was followed by a dinner dance at the Metropolitan
Club in Washington, DC where the 200 guests were entertained by the Gene Donati Orchestra. Once the bride
and groom arrived via the DC Ducks, they were led up the stairs to the tune of "Tiger Rag," and escorted
into the ballroom where they swing danced as husband and wife to Glenn Miller's "String of Pearls."
Design Cuisine catered the event and the wedding cake was done by Andrea Webster. Personal touches at the
reception included a monogrammed floorplate handpainted by Jane Matz.
