Darker greens are having a moment this season and are definitely making a comeback in fashion, decor, and weddings. Which was evident at the Royal Wedding of Princess Eugenie, which took place at Windsor Castle over the weekend!

Princess Eugenie who is ninth in line to the thrown decided to forgo a veil, but she did chose to accessorize her wedding gown with the gorgeous Greville Emerald tiara (borrowed from her grandmother, the Queen)

The newest Royal, The Duchess of Sussex, Meghan Markle has also been rocking this elegant color in many outfits lately.  Very soon we expect the gorgeous color to flood your Pinterest and Instagram feeds.

The beauty of using green is it’s ability to compliment a variety of color palattes and it can easily be incorporated into any type of florals or can stand along by itself!

 The color can also make a big impact for a winter wedding as well. Using a richer shade such as emerald or hunter green, will defiantly make a bold statement for your holiday soirée.  From invitations to centerpieces, and even calligraphy have showcased these gorgeous deep greens. To top it off the color looked breathtaking on some of our bridesmaids.

There are lots of ways you can incorporate the sophisticated color into your events.

Try adding some eye catching seating into your cocktail hour with a hunter green couch or chairs. Use a gorgeous green velvet tablecloth to captivate dinner guests and make a statement. Even adding some green goblets or vintage books will your bring event decor to the next level.

Congratulations Jenna and Danny

October 07, 2018. Category: anniversary, garden wedding, real wedding

Jenna Berk and Danny Cackley have a DC version of a Hollywood romance. The two actors crossed paths multiple times at performances and at their alma mater, University of Virginia, but it wasn’t until they met at an audition in the District that they hit it off!

This adorable couple was drawn to the historic Meridian House for the venue, the gardens reminded the pair of where they got engaged.

The couple chose a custom navy + gold wedding invitation suite by Flourishing Penguin 

A fall color scheme of jewel tones and charcoal provided the backdrop, and an unofficial Harry Potter-meets-Secret Garden theme (fitting of their penchant for the stage) kept the mood fun.

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

Congratulations Betsy and Rachel

September 30, 2018. Category: anniversary, DC Wedding, fall wedding, garden wedding, real wedding, Washington DC

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!

Wedding Social Media Do’s and Dont’s

September 18, 2018. Category: advice, real wedding

Whether you are the bride, groom or wedding guest, social media is a fun way share your experience of the special day. Before you press send it is important to know some wedding social media etiquette, to make sure you don’t overshare the intimate event.

To help out we’ve created a list of some social media dos and don’ts to help you avoid any wedding faux pas.

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.
