Real Wedding: Erin & Rob

15 Aug

This light and summer fun wedding was held earlier this year at Evergreen Country Club. The couple wanted to keep it preppy chic with a color story of Navy, White, and touches of Pink and Green. Their photographer Amanda Gilley did such an amazing job of catching the vibrant colors. I wanted to share a few of my favorite details of the day.

I really loved that the bride wanted to show her sorority sisters how much they meant to her. We created a corsage station with their sorority flower for each sister to wear during the wedding. At the end of the night guests were treated to a coffee and tea bar that they could pack up for the morning after the wedding. The Irish coffee smelled divine and Im sure everyone appreciated it come morning! Hope you enjoy and congrats to the newlyweds.

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!

Real Wedding: Ashely + Steve part II

19 Dec

To follow-up on yesterdays sweet and romantic wedding ceremony of Ashley and Steve, here is the super fun reception at the Mayflower Hotel. The night was kicked off by an incredibly sweet surprise toast/skit by the father of the groom, then followed up with a night of insane dancing and partying! I loved working with these two and their guests kept the night interesting and fun!  Ashley and Steve gave their guests cupcakes by Fluffy Thoughts as favors at their seats, and each table was named after a president and kept with their DC themed nuptials. Check out part one here

Special thanks again to Love Life Images for the amazing evening and beautiful work
