Shobha Bridal Camp

August 16, 2016

Dear Maryland Brides,

After much anticipation, and as a result of the popularity of its Dupont Circle shop, Shobha has opened its second DC area location (and seventh nationwide) in Rockville Pike. The fashionable hair removal destination’s laser, waxing, sugaring and threading services have captivated a loyal following of fashionistas and celebrities alike.

As part of its company culture, Shobha has committed to furthering the lives of South Asian women and children with philanthropic efforts including the opening of Shobha’s Home for Girls & Women, a home that supports 90 orphaned girls and young women that range in age from pre-school to college.

Shobha’s methods of hair removal include laser, sugaring, threading, waxing and trimming. Today, we are sharing with you their bridal bootcamp experience and just a few tips on how to get ready for your big day when it comes to hair….

Bridesmaid and Groomsmen Gifts!

June 2, 2016

Sweet Root Village put together some fabulous gifts recently and today, they are sharing where and how these beautiful babies came to life!
These bridesmaids gifts were all things sweet, wintery citrus, and floral. A perfectly light combo of deliciousness for these ladies. The gifts included Anthropologie’s Royal Apothic Eau de Parfum, Castelbel’s Plumeria Blossom soap which you can find at World Market, and a delicious nougat treat from The Italian Store to satisfy a little sweet tooth!

The Groomsmen gifts included a pretty rocking stormtrooper tie clip from SirCuffs on Etsy to pay subtle homage to Josh’s deep love of Star Wars. As well as sleek clay pomade from Baxter Of California and a metal hair comb with a bottle opener by Wood ‘n Steel that can be found at Heritage Dry Goods.

The looks were perfectly on point for this crew of attendants and such perfect inspiration for a thoughtful collection of items to love on your closest of friends and thank them for standing with you on such an important day!

Not Goodbye!

May 31, 2016

A letter to DW:

As I sit down to write this letter, I can’t help but reflect back on my introductory post – which seems like forever ago! While most is still true, a few things have changed:

  1. I knew I had a strong passion, but didn’t realize I would continue to fall more in love with it daily.
  2. I have now worked alongside all of you amazing DC vendors and am constantly blown away by your talent, energy and creative minds.
  3. I knew I wanted to learn, but I now understand the importance of listening, emerging yourself and being overly eager to engage yourself with other like-minded people.

I’m not going to lie – I didn’t TRULY understand what I was getting myself into when Jeannette asked me to take on this amazingly fun load of responsibility with her. The past few years with District Weddings have been more than I could have imagined. The relationships made, late nights and early mornings, endless albums of eye candy + constant overload of inspiration are only something that can be enjoyed first hand.

It is with a full heart, I am excited to announce that my southern roots are calling me home. I will be taking off on two exciting new journey’s and I hope that each of you will follow along!

Thank you District Weddings, for allowing me to share my passion with all of you! To all of the creative individuals who make up this unbelievable industry – keep shining! You truly are all one of a kind. To my Occasions family, I do not have enough room to tell you how amazing you are, but you know I will write it in a book. Thank you for teaching me, emerging me and giving me wings! To Ms. J, thank you for this opportunity. You are my rock, my brain and my constant joy.
