Sam & Dan in Washington, DC

The Bride Samantha (Sam) Simon, 26, a freelance communications consultant and copywriter
The Groom Daniel (Dan) Grunfeld, 28, a professional basketball player for Hapoel Migdal Jerusalem
The Date July 21

From the beginning, Sam was certain of two things: She wanted her wedding to be a blast, and she wanted it to be blue (her favorite color). The couple added yellow and white to the mix, and the sunny, whimsical occasion came together.
