Your the Apple of my Eye

22 Jan

Pulling together photo shoots is one of the great perks of being a designer and planner. I love coming together with my favorite vendors to create visual eye candy that will hopefully inspire clients and future wedding couples. We worked with a stellar team to produce a fall Apple inspired shoot which has graced the pages of Virginia Bride Magazine, Virginia Wedding Locations Magazine, United with Love, and Destination I Do Blog.

Mint and Gold St. Francis Wedding

10 Nov

Another bright and cheery spring wedding at St. Francis Hall that was featured earlier this spring on United with Love Blog (which is one of our favorite local blogs!!!). I wanted to share a few of our favorite pictures from Jennifer and Brian’s wedding day with everyone. They used mint and gold with touches of peach in their wedding colors to keep with the vibrancy of spring. They infused their love of travel with some of the additional decor including luggage tag favors for guests to take home.

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!
