Good to the last drop

We had the pleasure of working with Julie Barrow at the Four Season’s last week on a charity gala. We will post images soon, but I had to share a wonderful detail…we ordered coffee for our staff and the amazing team at the Four Season’s surprised us with a beautiful display of coffee and teas including flavored syrups. If you are a coffee fan, this is an adorable detail. The bottles are available at most container stores and your caterer can make the syrups for you. If you have the time a vintage sign would be a great touch.

I’ll drink to that

It’s getting so that specialty drinks aren’t really special anymore- they are expected, even required. If you are looking for a way to set your big day apart think about dressing up that specialty cocktail. We found a few fun options from fancy straws to edible flowers and cocktail charms. Go ahead, shake things up!

Station in life

With so many venues to choose from in DC, I like to spotlight one from time to time. If you are looking for a grand DC experience, East Hall at Union Station is a wonderful option. This space is best for groups of 200 or more so don’t try to use this for your 75 person fete. If you think this just might fit the bill for you, contact Hillary- she is another DC treasure.

Not shabby, just chic

If you check in with us often, you know I am much more of the useful info kind of blogger. That said, once in a while it is fun to show you how we gather inspiration for our weddings. Like most of you we read all the magazines and many blogs to come up with ideas for our events. We also have the benefit of attending loads of events and talking endlessly with our clients about their style and inspiration. One of our amazing brides is having her reception at the Newseum this spring but instead of having the contemporary design you would expect in that space, she wants to embrace the more rustic elegant look that so many of you are trying to achieve. The photos above are a few images that we are using for inspiration including the chalkboard instead of escort cards, found objects and a display of terrariums. Maybe you will use one of our ideas for your big day.

Wild at heart

I know I have a great job, but this week it was unbelievable. Danielle and I were guests at the Ritz Carlton in Amelia Island Florida. I will be posting in detail about the one of a kind (and surprisingly affordable) wedding options they presented but I wanted first to share a few images of us feeding the giraffes at the White Oak Conservation Center. This corner of the country is not to be missed!
