Early Tuesday evening, #thistown experienced a wedding for the ages.
Roll Call Capitol Hill Editor Jason Dick and Morning Consult's Fawn Johnson tied the knot in front of a crowd of friends and family gathered at Atlas Brew Works in Northeast D.C. in a ceremony that perfectly expressed their personalities.
NPR's Sue Davis officiated, and the vows, written by Dick and Johnson, included Latin phrases, references to Kurt Vonnegut and numerous mentions of the Washington Nationals. Instead of a traditional bouquet toss, the bride and groom orchestrated a T-shirt toss, showering guests with mementos from the couple's vast collection. (Johnson put her crafting skills to good use ahead of time, turning their overflow shirts into table cloths.)
Guests were treated to a variety of brews, as well as barbecue from DCity Smokehouse and soft pretzels from The Pretzel Bakery before decamping to Boundary Road on H Street. The after-party featured a custom cocktail named after their PG-13 wedding hashtag (#FawnLovesTheD) and made with Pikesville Rye, Capitoline rosé vermouth, St. George spiced pear liqueur and Bittercube Jamaican bitters.
The CQ Roll Call family was well-represented at the party, along with a contingent of National Journal reporters past and present and Morning Consult staffers. The happy couple decamped to New Orleans the following morning — on a reasonably timed midday flight.
