The Inn at Perry Cabin

October 09, 2009. Category: venue

Finding the location for your big day is usually the most difficult part of the wedding process. If you are considering a site outside of the immedate DC area, The Inn at Perry Cabin is a beautiful option. Featured in “Wedding Crashers” it is a breathtaking property in the Eastern Shore of Maryland. The spot is ideal for smaller wedding of 80 guests or less in their commodore ballroom. If you are planning a larger soiree, you will need to erect a tent and “buy out” all of the hotel’s 80 guest rooms. For a nearby-destination wedding, this spot should not be missed!

A rose by any other name

October 06, 2009. Category: decor

After looking a stack of wedding magazines you have probably chosen your favorite flowers. But, keep in mind, your favorite flower may have a strong scent- either sweet or not, you have to take this into account in your wedding plans. A sweet smelling bouquet is a great thing, but a room full of strongly scented arrangements can overwhelm your guests and take away from the flavor of their meal. Gardenia, Lilies and Tuberrose all smell amazing. Baby’s breath, not so much. Maybe Martha should have a scratch and sniff section in her next issue!

La dolce vita

October 05, 2009. Category: shape up


All of our brides are beautiful, but our most recent bride was in amazing shape. When I asked she told me her secret was cutting out sweets except for sweet riot. These little chocolates satisfied her sweet craving for just a few calories. I ran out to get some for myself and they are yummy! The only trick is keeping them away from my husband.
