Today’s Real Wedding Feature: Elegant Lakeside Love

August 26, 2015

Take an elegant lakeside wedding then add a secret garden edge to it… It all adds up to Nikki + Matt’s wedding day. This wedding proves that a neutral color palette can make a powerful statement. Some of our favorite wedding features include: the bridesmaids’ deep mauve gowns, the gold foil dinner menus and the cascading blooms. Combining all of these elements turned this river estate wedding into a one-of-a-kind feté.

Dress Tips!

August 25, 2015


Last week we asked if you were into the veil idea…this week, we are asking what dress are you?

We are highlighting just a few fabulous go-to styles. The most important thing to realize when going dress shopping, is to try all types on. You are never sure how that style will fall on your shape and how you will look. Wedding dresses are totally different than normal day clothing!

Support LOVE

August 20, 2015

Today, we are off supporting Megan Pollard from Events In the City (a leading Washington, D.C. event planning firm.) Megan and her sweet 2 little girls lost a loved one this week and today we would love to encourage our readers to take a moment to realize the impact of losing a love one could have on a family, home and future. If you can, we are asking for as much support as possible to help someone who has given so much to weddings, events, and the DC events community in her life. We know with these funds, Megan will help encourage her little ladies to do the same in their future. Our hearts are with the Pollard family in this time and we are sending so much love to all of our readers, friends and family today.

Please hug your love ones extra tight today and everyday from here on out!
