Real Wedding: Carly and Tim

5 Dec

Carly and Tim were married last fall at Stone Manor in upper Maryland with a Greek Orthodox ceremony under the outdoor pergola, followed by dinner and dancing. Carly and Tim were incredibly crafty and Tim did some amazingly cool projects to give their wedding and quirky and unique vibe. They used the color tones of bright red, black, and white to really pop against the fall season. Carly’s sister hand baked all of the yummy desserts for their sweets table, and her other sister created their fun multi tiered cake. To pull together all of the couples fun decor and ideas, they asked us to come in as Month of Coordinators to make sure everything ran smoothly, as well as looked just as they had envisioned. We loved coordinating their wedding and their guests really knew how to get down!

Meant to Bee Bridal Brunch

20 Aug

I have the pleasure of planning a sweet bridal brunch themed after honey and the phrase “meant to bee” for a group of women this spring at Potomac Point Winery. I pulled together a color story of mint, butter, and pinks and used fabulous linens from DC Rentals as a starting point. There are so many fun ways to bring together a theme and they don’t always have to be so literal but instead try something fun like honeycomb paper balls to inspire with texture and hexagon placemats as a nod to the hexagon of a bee’s honeycomb.

The ladies dined on a brunch menu of french toast, fruit parfait, a full biscuit bar, and a delicious cake from CakeLore. Signature drinks of Ginger Honey Cocktails and mimosas were passed by servers along with a wide range of Potomac Point Wines. Special thank you to our vendor team and I am so thankful to have had this Brunch featured on Weddings Chicks http://www.weddingchicks.com/2013/08/15/honey-themed-bridal-shower/  

Please enjoy the rest of the shower and gorgeous photos by Audra Wrisley Photography!
