Congratulations Jenni and David

April 29, 2018. Category: anniversary

At the Decatur House, just steps from the bride’s former workplace, the White House, friends and family celebrated this sweet couple’s quintessential Washingtonian nuptials at a stunning spring celebration.

The ceremony took place under a lush floral chuppah designed by Sweet Root Village, that later became an entrance arch to the tent for dinner.

The couples’ love of food (especially desserts) was used as inspiration to create a unique and delicious escort card display. The “eat dessert first” featured a cupcake for each guest with their name and table number flag.

The weekend was accented with details honoring the couple’s true love: their dogs. While the two giant dogs (a great pyrenees and a bernese mountain dog) could not be there in person their presence was felt with adorable hand decorated cookies by Sugar Pixie Sweets

Happy First Anniversary Mr. and Mrs. Miller.

We wish you a lifetime of love, laughter and happiness!

Lilac for Spring

April 19, 2018. Category: attire, inspiration, trends

I have loved fashion and following what is happening on the runway for as long as I can remember.  Once I graduated from FIT and got a job as a wedding planner, it became pretty easy to see how fashion trends make their way to the wedding world.

This season Lilac is all the rage. Pastels are always a popular choice for springtime, but lilac has emerged to be the favorite for the fashion gods and we are seeing it everywhere from suiting to jackets to accessories.  These pastel shades are light, and easy to translate to weddings. And we are sure they will be on everyone’s wedding Pinterest board soon.

Incorporating lilac into weddings will be super easy!  Bring in a pop of color into your bridal look by wearing a lilac hued shoe. Serve a lavender infused cocktail for your specialty drink like a lavender lemonade or lavender gin and tonic. Brighten up your  tablescape with colorful arrangements – try blooming wisteria, sweet peas, hyacinth, lilacs and tulip. Don’t forget that you can bring color to your table through the linen as well. And bridesmaids in lilac, will be fabulous.

You can see our take on the trend here.


Layering lilac linen and water glasses really drive the color home.

Dip into the lilac trend, and have fun with it!
