Suspended Beauty

October 2, 2015

There is nothing like walking in a room and being blown away by a gorgeous hanging floral arrangement – If you are looking for a dynamic statement piece, consider suspending a hanging arrangement over the head table, over the dance floor, or even mounted against a wall for a ceremony backdrop!2015-09-30_0001 2015-09-30_0002 2015-09-30_0003 2015-09-30_0004

How to Achieve the Photo Shoot Effect in Your Wedding Film

If there’s anyone who knows anything about weddings it’s the owner of the Capital Bridal Affair and Fashion Show and Senior Catering Sales Executive at The Mayflower Hotel in Washington, D.C. Yes, Katie knew exactly how to make all her (and her husband-to-be’s) dreams come true for their picturesque wedding, which of course took place at The Mayflower Hotel on May 23, 2015.

Here’s the exciting part – the Suburban Video team was there to capture all the magical details and put them together to produce a truly inspiring wedding highlight film. Take a look at Katie and Christopher’s wedding highlight film and let the visually stunning effects take over your senses.

Three words: Photo Shoot Effect. If you didn’t catch all the fantastic elements that made Katie and Christopher’s big day look like it was coming to life off the pages of a glamour magazine, watch it again. The lighting, the after-effects, the posing and staging – all beautiful and transcending details that will stir a lifetime of joyful memories for Katie and Christopher.

Modern Twist on Anniversary Etiquette

September 29, 2015

For as long as it dates back, the gifting etiquette of anniversaries was followed by all – without losing sight of the tradition, we love this modern “twist” on a popular list of wedding anniversary etiquette.

1st Anniversary

Out with the Old – Paper

In with the New – Clocks

5th Anniversary

Out with the Old – Wood

In with the New – Silverware

10th Anniversary 

Out with the Old – Aluminum

In with the New – Diamond Jewelry

The 25th and 50th anniversary still hold true to Silver + Gold

We love these statement pieces by Kate Spade – finding a collection that fit your Bride + Groom is classic and makes it easy to pull together. A gifting tradition your Bride + Groom are sure to enjoy for years to come.

FALL-ing in Love with Autumn Accessories

September 25, 2015

The season of roasted pumpkin and crisp evenings is officially here! Planning a Fall wedding has many joys, including the “falling leaves” romance. The weather can be chilly, but you can still find your own style by throwing on a cashmere cape, fur shaw or event bright blazer to keep warm – we love these edgy and different looks!
