weddings & engagements Clark-Rosenberg Wedding

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.

Martin-Simonds Wedding

Anne Wallace Martin and William Haskell Simonds, Jr. were married on April 10, 1999 at the Christ Church in Georgetown. The bride is the daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Middleton A. Martin. The groom is the son of Mr. and Mrs. William H. Simonds, Jr.

The matron of honor was Virginia Martin Reece, and the maid of honor was Margot Holt Martin, both sisters of the bride. Bridesmaids were Sarah Louise Klish, Jillian Lee Richardson and Alison Laura Vance. Caroline Murphy Farley served as junior bridesmaid. Lucy Anne Mower, cousin of the bride, was the flower girl. The groom's brother, Alexander Thomson Simonds served as the best man. Groomsmen were David Martin Endres, John George Loverro, Karl Muhlbauer, Jr. and the bride's brother Middleton Ansley Martin, Jr. Edward Hurley Mower, the bride's cousin, served as ringbearer.

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.

Annie is an Associate with Russell Reynolds, and Will is the Head Tennis Professional at the Racquet and Tennis Club in New York City.

The couple honeymooned in Turkey. They reside in New York City and are in the process of relocating to Virginia.
