Real Wedding & Feature: Mallory and Philip!

29 Oct

We were thrilled to have Mallory and Philips stunning classic wedding at the Hay Adams featured on Style Me Pretty this week. You can see their feature here . What I loved most about this couple was that they were traditional, classic, but totally broke loose during dancing and just gave it all up on the dance floor! We enjoyed helping make their wedding go smoothly, and they were such a great family to work with. We wish them all the best, and make sure to check out their fabulous small details such as the crab seasoning favors, and oyster shell escort cards as a nod to the sea!

pajamas and pancakes 1st birthday

12 Dec

Showing off a special first birthday that was featured on Onto Baby earlier this year. Instead of a more traditional theme we wanted to make fun with our idea to have everyone come over for brunch and do “Pancakes in Pajama’s”. We used shades of blue in ombre scale and a reoccurring set of shapes in banners and dots to keep things cohesive.  For the littlest guests they were given swag boxes full of games and treats to make sure everyone felt included when the birthday boy opened gifts. For the quintessential smash cake, a multi-tiered inside out cake was made which hysterically Jackson would not have anything to do with. This was so much fun to plan and I look forward to years of more birthday parties for this handsome fella. (I know! I’m biased!) Big thank you to Lisa Boggs Photography for these amazing photos!

Real Wedding: Maggie and Elizabeth

4 Jun

Following up yesterday’s romantic wedding of M&E (Check it out here) We are rolling over to the fun-filled reception under a sea of Edison lights and starry skies. We opted to forgo the tent at Dumbarton House and instead bring in a few heaters and string up Edison lights for an al fresco dinner party. Amaryllis brough in farm tables and the Roberts & Co. team hand stitched runners of orange fabric to keep the tables light and warm. Dahlias, garden roses, ranunculus, and wooden crates adorned each table in beautiful peach and cream tones.

We were inspired by the Southern Weddings Magazine escort card contest finalists idea (here) , and so M&E had a similar idea commissioned for their escort card tea packets. Guests were treated to late night snacks of donut holes, dipping sauces, and yummy french fries as they danced the night away with the Doug Segree Band. Super big thank you to Duhon Photography for these beautiful images of the day! Enjoy and congrats to Maggie and E!

Real Ceremony: Maggie and Elizabeth

3 Jun

I had the joy and pleasure of working with Maggie and Elizabeth last year to plan their destination DC Wedding. These two were hilarious and fun and made planning such a joy! Their priorities were food, fun, and great music throughout the night. They hosted both the ceremony and reception at the Dumbarton House in Georgetown and the wonderful Occasions Caterers created delicious eats for everyone. The ceremony had plenty of personalized touches and readings and although a bit chilly for October, guests were warmed by the love of these two!

Guests were given pennant flags to wave for the married couple that also doubled as programs on the back. They were greeted at the door with a southern spiked peach tea to compliment the peach, navy, and sky blue color palette woven throughout

Stay tuned tomorrow for the second part of their wedding story!
