Winter DC Wedding reception

17 Feb

To continue from yesterdays stunning winter ceremony in Georgetown, we move on to the reception at Carnegie Institution. A plated dinner was served by Well Dunn on a mixture of round tables with a focal Kings Table in the center of the room. Adorned with lush green garlands and towering white and green textured tall centerpieces, the room glowed with the upcoming warmth of Spring. The couple provided a delicious wedding cake from Fluffy Thoughts as well as a unique Nationals themed grooms cake for Tom!

Classic Winter DC Real Wedding

16 Feb ashley_tom_georgetown_carnegie_wedding_043

Ashley and Tom were a delight to work with as we planned their February wedding over the course of the year. We wanted to create a vision that was classic with lush textured greens, crisp whites, and accented with shades of slate and silver. We worked with B. Floral to design a center Kings Table that was just breath taking the day of the wedding.

Guests met at St. John’s Episcopal in Georgetown for the beautiful ceremony on a day that had just the slightest hint of snow flurries, but held off until the wedding was completed! They then joined the couple at Carnegie Institute for dinner and dancing by MyDeeJay’s Mike Bell. We provided a new wooden bar with custom fabric inserts that coordinated with the wedding design. At the end of the night guests were treated to a take away of homemade chocolate chip cookies and spiked hot coco in monogramed sleeves. Enjoy the first part of their wonderful day, and make sure to check out the reception tomorrow!

Your the Apple of my Eye

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.
