Real Wedding: Bonnie and Tom

16 Jan

Bonnie and Tom are two cool clients, and not often do we get such great down to earth couples that just go with the flow and make everything so hip and unassuming. They wanted a wedding that was untraditional, funky, and really a reflection of the two of them. We opted for a neon and gold indian-dutch infusion wedding at L2 club and lounge. They had a small group of friends for an intimate ceremony followed by a reception catered by Kafe Leopold and music all night long. The bride walked down the gold confetti aisle in a beautiful red Sari and exchanged vows and garlands with her new husband. Guests were welcomed to the wedding with a polaroid guest book and a bollywood accessory station of bindi’s, bangles, and glitzy jewels. I hope you love the awesomeness of the wedding as much as I did!

Real Wedding: Maggie and Gareth

2 Dec

Maggie and Gareth were married last year at Carnegie Institute for Science and they really knew how to throw a great party. They were married in the rotunda after doing their first look at the Donovan House roof top lounge. The couple really wanted to infuse their wedding with personality and special nods so they gave guests hand made bowls as favors for each family. Dinner and dancing followed, but the really unique portion of the night was Carnivale. In Costa Rica, at weddings, guests don masks and other fun party ensembles and really cut loose. Spanish salsa music is played and the guests at this wedding went nuts. Maggie and Gareth brought in feather boas, maraca’s, beads, ornate decorative masks, and noise makers to start up the party. Everyone piled into the dance floor and it invigorated the rest of the evening leading up to the couples’ sparkler send-off. Guests were such good sports about it, as it was raining but they wanted to make sure this adorable couple got the send-off they deserved!

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!
