“Light it Up”- G+B’s Real Wedding

October 22, 2014

From the invitations to the floral arrangements this wedding did not miss a beat. Gretchen and Brandon, our lovely real wedding couple today, knew that the National Cathedral was where they would tie the knot – the groom is a graduate of St. Alban’s. Their desire for a fun party and an indoor/outdoor location made The Decatur House the ideal location for the reception.

The polished and preppy look of the wedding was the perfect balance for this couple. Stunning arrangements and textured linens made a statement at each of the sitting tables. After dinner, the guests were greeted by a light-up favor bar [a new DW favorite]. From there, it was a true party with the Winn Brothers. G + B escaped from their wedding with a fun getaway and a custom gobo shinning on the streets of D.C.!

RIVINI BY RITA VINIERIS

October 17, 2014

Oh how I love the RIVINI line by Rita Vinieris. Every year she has an out-of-the-box idea, she is always one step ahead of all trends and each gown is carefully crafted to each bride + look. This year she was inspired by “soft seduction.”  Rita says: “I took all of my favorite go-to-items: a sweatshirt, an oversized tunic, a sexy bustier and a simple t-shirt and created some untraditional interpretations.” You can’t go wrong with a stunning RIVINI gown, it really is one of a kind!
