Clean up your act

September 14, 2009. Category: dress

What to do with your dress once the big day is over? Most brides will want to have their dress cleaned and preserve it for as long as possible. When our bride’s ask us for the right cleaner, we always recommend Parkway Custom Drycleaner in Chevy Chase.  Click here for a $50 coupon. Who knows, maybe someday your daughter will want to wear it… as much as you wanted to wear your mom’s dress.

Purple Haze

September 11, 2009. Category: real wedding

It’s not often that a bride is as sweet or as pretty as Angie, but we lucked out with this wedding at The Hay Adams Hotel.  The bride chose a unique palate of purple and and orange and the combination was really fresh. Volanni created an amazing contemporary floral design and Andrew Reilly captured all the fun.  Enjoy!

Take a Seat

September 10, 2009. Category: uncategorized

I have been wishing that someone in DC would start renting Ghost chairs forever.  It’s been so long, in fact, that I think I am over them.  Great news!  There are two new chair options that are even better at DC rental.  They are called the versailles and ribbon chair. Either will have a huge impact on any event.  Take that Phillipe Stark.

Poetry in Motion

September 09, 2009. Category: ceremony

This past weekend we had the amazing pleasure to be a part of Alex and Taylor’s wedding at Woodend. A big thanks to Jay Premackfor the image above. They are an electric pair.  Not surprisingly the bride (being a professional poet herself) chose some moving readings.  I am  delighted to share one of them with you.  Maybe you will add it to your ceremony.

by Robert Fulghum

You have known each other from the first glance of acquaintance to this point of commitment.  At some point, you decided to marry.  From that moment of yes, to this moment of yes, indeed, you have been making commitments in an informal way.  All of those conversations that were held in a car, or over a meal, or during long walks- all those conversations that began with, “When we’re married,” and continued with “I will” and “you will” – all those late night talks that included “someday” and “somehow” and “maybe” -and all those promises that are unspoken matters of the heart.  All these common things, and more are the real process of a wedding.  

The symbolic vows that you are saying to one another, “you know all those things that  we’ve promised, and hoped and dreamed- well, I meant it all, every word.”

Look at one another and remember this moment in time.  Before this moment you have been many things to one another- acquaintance, friend, companion, lover, dancing partner, even teacher, for you have learned much from one another these part few years.  Shortly you shall say a few words that will take you across a threshold of life, and things between you will never quite be the same.

For after today you shall say to the world- This is my husband. This is my wife.

Ooh, I still have chills

While you may not love all of your future husband’s friends, he still has to buy them a gift for being his groomsmen.  We love this Power Razor from the Art of Shaving.  It is a beautiful item for the boys dopp kit and they will look even better for your photos.  If only it could keep them from hitting on your bridesmaids.
