Banking on Food

October 17, 2014. Category: charity

Food and feeding people is something that is very important to the A. Dominick family. When Aimee was asked to chair the first ever JSM Family Foundation Gala, it was a perfect fit.  The JSM Family Foundation feeds DC’s hungry poor with ZERO paid employees.

A few weeks ago we went to see an average delivery to one of the pantries that JSM stocks in Northeast DC.  An SUV full of nutritious non-perishables quickly filled the shelves and then a full SUV of the hard to supply fresh items followed. We had the opportunity to meet some of the wonderful volunteers and lovely customers. The need can seem overwhelming, but we are proud to help in our small way.  Please consider attending the gala on November 21st at the Capital Hilton or making a donation directly to the charity.

From Inspiration to Reality

September 26, 2014. Category: anniversary, cake, decor, inspiration, real wedding

In the world of Pinterest and countless wedding blogs many brides can get overwhelmed when it comes to creating an cohesive look for their day. An old fashioned inspiration board can be a great way to escape all the pins and find some clarity in your vision.

In honor of Carlla and Otey’s one year anniversary we are looking back at their inspiration board and how their Charlottesville wedding came together in some gorgeous images by Tec Petaja.



A huge thanks to Amaryllis, Inc. for the breathtaking florals!
