Real Wedding: Stephanie and Johnathon

2 Jul

I was thrilled to have Stephanie and Johnathon’s wedding featured earlier this month on the Washingtonian Blog. I wanted to share a more intimate look at their beautiful wedding over the next two days. I loved working with this couple from start to finish and I am so blessed to have been able to help build such a beautiful wedding that really reflected their personalities and love.

11 Apr

To follow up on yesterdays ceremony and first look by Andrew and Araceli (here) I wanted to share their super fun cocktail hour and reception. For cocktails we brought in a wonderful Mariachi band to seranade guests while they enjoyed the bar and passed aps. Dinner was in the pavillion with large centerpeices of babies breath balls and pops of bright green runners. Guests enjoyed Timmie Metz (who I ALWAYS recomend!)  on guitar all night and dined on Airlies delicious food. Enjoy!

Real Wedding: Kathy + Philip {part 2}

25 Jan

To wrap up Kathy and Philips gorgeous sunset inspired wedding, we move the cocktail hour and reception to another beautiful ballroom at the Omni Shoreham. The couple wants to mix up the seating arrangement for their 200 guests with a mix of banquet style kings tables and rounds of 8-10. A white dancefloor was brought in by Davinvi’s Florist, who also created beautiful arrangements of babies breath, hydrangea, and a mass of floating and pillar candles.

Guests were treated to a candy bar filled with yummy sweets and bags to take home treats at the end of the night. Enjoy and if you did not see part one check it out here and best wishes to the happy couple!
