National Wine Day

 Did you know that today is National Wine Day? Not that we need a holiday to raise a glass, but it is certainly more fun when we have a good excuse!

We love how this couple’s vineyard wedding in Charlottesville inspired them to use wine bottles as their escort cards, such a fun way for their guess to find their seat.

Classic Romantic DC Wedding

May 02, 2017. Category: ballroom, classic, real wedding, traditional

For this sweet couple, getting married seemed more eventual than imperative. Even after dating for nearly eight and a half years, and more than enough time to think about it, they didn’t exactly have a vision for their wedding. They definitely knew the ceremony would be traditional – reflective of their shared Jewish values – and they had only one requirement for the reception: it had to be a really fun party! The couple decided on The Ritz-Carlton in Washington DC and their romantic and classic wedding quickly came to life.

The bride and groom incorporated some special details that had a personal touch, from a welcome box full of their favorite treats, to an Ariel & Ben ‘fun fact’ cocktail napkins to delicious late-night snacks and a candy buffet.

Just as they had envisioned, their guests kept the dance floor packed all night making it the perfect celebration!

A Virginia Farm Wedding Filled with DIY Charm

April 21, 2017. Category: diy, inspiration, real wedding, virginia wedding, weddings

 Set in Virginia’s breathtaking farmland this wedding is filled with just the right amount of southern charm, whimsical details and DIY touches! This adorable couple knew exactly what they wanted for their wedding and Panorama Farms was the perfect blank canvas.

This crafty couple worked on many projects during their 17-month engagement here are just a few:

For the ceremony the bride spruced up the grapevine arch and ceremony chairs with various shades of peach and coral fabric that she cut them into strips herself. The result was spectacular! Especially when the wind was blowing.

Along with one of her bridesmaids (who just happened to be have a background in graphic design), the bride created a logo incorporating the barn and the couple’s initials. The logo was used on everything from their invitations to koozies, and all of signage.

The burlap runners on the tables were trimmed with fabric the couple purchased in India.

The couple made the chalkboard sign with a layout of the barn, so the guests could find the restroom or donut truck at any point throughout the night.
