Real Wedding – National Museum of Women in the Arts

August 11, 2017. Category: DC Wedding, real wedding, wedding inspiration, wedding planner

We always love when our clients decide on a venue that is quintessential DC and The National Museum of Women in the Arts, is one of them. As we head back there this weekend for our last wedding of the Summer we thought it would be fun to look back at one of our favorite weddings held there.

Erin and Dan first fell in love with the National Museum of Women in the Arts shortly after they started dating, so when Erin and Dan made a shortlist of wedding venues, it naturally made it’s way to the top. “The museum is both simultaneously grand and intimate,” the bride said. “The tall ceilings and gold accents throughout the space add a touch of glam while not being ostentatious.” They locked the space in for February 6, 2016 — a date that coincided with the Lunar New Year, so the couple happily included elements related to the Chinese New Year and the groom’s cultural heritage.

With the grand staircase at the NMWA in mind, Erin looked for a ball gown, and instantly lit up when she tried on this Hayley Paige strapless wedding dress, complete with a silk radzmir crossover bodice, a full tulle skirt with horsehair flounces, and a chapel-length train, it was exactly what she had wanted and would be perfect for when she walked down the staircase with her father.

National Wine Day

May 25, 2017. Category: decor, details, escort cards, inspiration, National Wine Day, real wedding

 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.

This sweet couple’s classic wedding at the Hay-Adams was the perfect spring soirée, with a dreamy pastel palette, delicate embroidered fabrics, and timely cherry blossom accents in our nation’s capital! The bride carried an elegant bouquet of pastel-hued roses, hydrangeas, ranunculus, and garden roses by Highway to Hill that we are still swooning over!

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