Real Wedding: Laura-Kate and Eitan

2 Jan

Laura-Kate and Eitan were two of the best clients we had all year because of the sheer volume of personality they brought to their wedding. They had so much joy for each other and life and it was so refreshing to end the year with an amazing couple. They were married at Temple Micah in D.C and then the party moved to Sequoia in Georgetown for an all out dance fest. The couple opted for a first look at the beautiful St. Albans school before they joined their family at the church for the signing of the Ketubah. The brides family create a personalized quilt that was hung at the reception behind the Pie Table that was an assortment of delicious pies brought in by family. The couple brought in their personality with favors for the guests as a joke to their backgrounds. She had moonshine and he had bagels and shmear- and everyone loved it! Enjoy!

Real Wedding: Araceli and Andrew

10 Apr

These two were so much fun to work with and they are a shining example of how much I bond with clients during their wedding process. I have made sure to stay true to keeping in touch and I am so excited that they have just bought their first DC area home! Araceli and Andrew came to me shortly after moving to the DC area from California and wanted to host a small intimate wedding for their closest friends and family. They knew nothing of the area and had a limited budget to work with, so I agreed to help them stretch it as far as we could.

After a bunch of venue options we settled on hosting the entire weekend at the Airlie Center from the rehearsal dinner and welcome cocktails to the post wedding brunch. We wanted to infuse Araceli’s Mexican heritage into the wedding so we order special paper picado flags, and had mexican wedding cookies for guests to take home.  We also made sure to have a grooms cake with Andrew’s love of zombies. I want to share their beautiful getting ready and ceremony photos today. We create babies breath bouquets for the ladies and Araceli wore a gorgeous dress from Betsy Robinson Bridal and to die for shoes by Valentino. Enjoy!

Their guest book was so fun! They collected photos of everyone from the wedding and we strung them up. Guest then found their photo and added to a page that had a special layout to which they could write in notes and leave funny quotes.

Real Wedding: Ashley + Steve

18 Dec

Ashley and Steve were an adorable couple from the sunny state of California that asked me to help with their Mayflower Hotel wedding in the fall. Unfortunately it was a rainy fall, but these two did not let it spoil their big day. The best part about the night was the amount of insane dancing out on the floor. At one point the groomsmen even constructed a huge jump rope out of napkins that the bride jumped in to! Enjoy a peak at their pre ceremony and ceremony photos and stay tuned for the reception tomorrow!
