Guests: 265

How they met: The couple met at D.C. Minyan, an independent Jewish prayer group, in the fall of 2008. They grew closer while serving on a committee that organizes weekly services, which led to a dinner date in spring of 2010. Two days later Klein offered Murow a ride to a Jewish retreat. Stuck in traffic for more than two hours, their easy conversation revealed how much they had in common.

The proposal: On Jan. 2, 2012, Klein suggested a game of Rummikub before leaving for a dinner reservation. Murow wasn’t surprised, because they have an ongoing competition. Focused on her next move, she didn’t immediately notice that Klein had set out four tiles on which he had written the words “Will you marry me?” Not until he got down on one knee holding a ring did she say yes. They celebrated with dinner at the Source.

The wedding: Murow and Klein each gave a speech at their reception dinner. Murow said Klein was the man of her dreams. Klein said he was at a loss for words and would just have to sing them. Accompanied by friends on guitar, drums and back-up vocals, he played the piano and sang a song he had written for Murow.

The honeymoon: They traveled to Antigua for a week, where they went ziplining and snorkeling, but mostly relaxed on the beach.
