Some came in kilts, others in tea gowns and many were wearing hats!

Hundreds of people came to the Ritz Carlton D.C. early Friday morning to watch Prince William and Kate Middleton tie the knot.

The hotel originally planned for a small affair, but as interest grew, the party was moved to the Grand Ballroom.

Guests dined on a British-inspired breakfast buffet as they watched the historic nuptials live on large screens.

For some, it was a mother/daughter moment.

Karen Tinsky brought her 4-year-old daughter, Elle.

"I very much remember my mother waking me up early morning in 1981 to watch Princess Diana and Prince Charles get married," Tinsky said. "It's one of my most treasured memories and I wanted to have the same thing for my daughter."
