Congratulations Betsy and Rachel

Betsy and Rachel wanted their wedding to be personal and romantic with an industrial feel and the The Ritz Carlton Georgetown had the exact aesthetic that they were looking for — exposed brick, enormous windows, steel beams and a beautiful garden for their outdoor ceremony.

Gravitating to darker and richer tones, the couple created custom navy and copper wedding invitations by Flourishing Penguin 

Navy and copper details were threaded throughout their wedding decor and accented with lavish greenery and gorgeous floral arrangements by Highway to Hill 

The couple wanted to include their three cats and a dog in their wedding day since they couldn’t be there, so they named a signature drink after their fur babies!

Happy First Anniversary Betsey and Rachel we wish you a lifetime of love and laughter!

Congratulations Liv and Rich

September 23, 2018. Category: anniversary, fall wedding, luxury wedding, real wedding, Washington DC

Although neither Rich nor Liv are originally from Washington DC, they knew that they wanted to get married here. They felt that so much of their love story happened in this great city; their first date, their first home, and their engagement that wanted to “invite” the city to their big day and the iconic Hay- Adams was the perfect fit for their classic DC wedding! 

As two Gettysburg College grads, this adorable couple wanted to include details that were reminiscent of their early years; Gettysburg College “World Famous” Chocolate Chip Cookies as a late night snack, a cocktail hour filled with a modern take on their alma mater’s colors – ginger jar blue and orange dahlias, and vintage Gettysburg stamps on their gorgeous blue and white wedding invitations.

Trailing greenery, crystal chandeliers and a gorgeous mix of ivory and white roses and orchids were suspended from the celling transforming the ceiling of the Hay- Adams into magic!

The couple added a pop of color with a mix and match of  beautiful blue and white china and a stunning cake by ButterCream Bakeshop, which mirrored the lining of their wedding invitations.

Happy First Anniversary Mr. and Mrs. Clough we wish you a lifetime of endless love, laughter!

Do set up a wedding hashtag.

Do use a hashtag that guests can easily spell.

Do tell the guests what the hashtag is. Post it on your website, on a reception sign or even cocktail napkins.

Do check your wedding hashtag to see if it has been used before.

Do include a place for guests to take pictures. Incorporate a well lit photo wall or backdrop so guests can snap some wedding selfies.

Don’t post too many design pictures as you plan. You want to leave an element of surprise for your big day.

Don’t post pictures of the bride on the wedding day until she in down the aisle.

Don’t post pictures of other guests that they wouldn’t want their boss to see (ie, after too many glasses of champagne).

Don’t let your vendors post too many pictures if you want your wedding published in a magazine.

Congratulations Julie and Justin

September 16, 2018. Category: anniversary, Ballroom Wedding, real wedding, weddings

Julie and Justin were married at The Four Seasons in Washington DC.

The couple’s visions was a “black tie garden” wedding. The bride had always wanted a ballroom wedding, but wanted to bring the outside in with lush, flowing flowers to give the sense of walking into an indoor garden.

The couple were engaged for a year and a half so there was a lot of built up energy and excitement leading up to their first look. Julie said, she “didn’t give Justin any hints on what we was wearing, what she was doing with my hair- nothing!”

When she saw him it really hit her that they were getting married- and she will never forgot the “look in his eyes of love and excitement either!”

The couple chose a delicate white and gray invitation suite by The Dandelion Patch, for their Fall Wedding.

Sweet Root Village created a circular hanging chuppah of lush white flowers & dangling greenery and so their guests sit in a semi-circle during the ceremony, this was really important to the couple, as they wanted to be surround but all of their loved-ones!

The ballroom was draped in white to give the room a softer feel and had candles; lush, asymmetrical flower arrangements; and garlands throughout the space to finish off our garden look.

Happy First Anniversary Mr. and Mrs. Berger We wish you a lifetime of love and laughter!
