Real Wedding: Rani and Loc

13 Jun

Last summer we had the pleasure of working with Rani and Loc for their wedding at Top of the Town. They chose to hold their ceremony at the Netherlands Carillon overlooking the amazing scenic views of DC. They were such a joy to work with and the photos from Tracy Timmester were beautiful!

Some really great details about their wedding was that they chose to infuse both of their cultures together as well as their love for DC. She changed into a beautiful Sari at the reception with gorgeous gold accessories. Guests found their seats on Chocolate coins with their names and table numbers imprinted on each. The absolute best treat was the ice cream cart we had positioned for guests for the walk from the ceremony to the reception venue. Enjoy their beautiful day!

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!

light as a feather

Over the top themes can be overrated… instead try a special touch or texture to weave together a cohesive story for your wedding. Feathers can be fun and flirty or exotic and romantic!!

Local Vendor Love: Meant to be Calligraphy

24 Apr

One of the great treasures of the DC wedding scene is Michele of  Meant to be Calligraphy. She has such a wonderful talent and her script adds that extra element to really elevate a wedding to the next level. There are many great places to add calligraphy into a wedding beyond the standard escort or place cards. Having calligraphy on invitations, table signs, the guest book, and favor tags are just a few ideas to use. Enjoy some of the Meant to be Calligraphy examples below!
