Freddy & Chris in Washington, DC

The Bride Friederike (Freddy) Kaiser, 24, works for Waldorf Astoria Hotels & Resorts
The Groom Christopher (Chris) Putko Jr., 27, an officer in the US Navy
The Date March 31

Picking a central location for all of their international guests was one of the hardest parts of the planning process for this worldly couple. Once they decided on DC (Chris went to Georgetown), they pulled together their crisp, modern wedding using a neutral color palette of white, gray and black.
