We are excited to tell you about a fun and fabulous opportunity for a creative photo shoot with Meg Biram and Abby Jiu! On October 25th and 26th, the dynamic duo will be pairing up to offer their services for 30-minute sessions that are perfect for Holiday cards, gifts, kids, pets, couples, or even fun head shots for your office! Here at DW, we think they would make the perfect engagement announcement…how fun!

How it works: The photos will be taken at their Georgetown studio. There will be a max of two people per session. (To include more in on the fun, just sign up for more than one session!) During the 30-minute photo session, guests will take pictures in front of four different backdrops: Neutrals with Gold and Silver Metallics, Black and White Graphic with Pops of Color, Jewel Tones and Brights. The photos are meant to be really fun, but you are more than welcome to select a neutral backdrop if you prefer a less colorful one for the shoot. High resolution photos will be yours and ready within two weeks of your session – available online for download.

For more information and to sign up, check out their website at: flashbash.storenvy.com

The Mrs. Box

September 24, 2014

Color and individuality connect in this unique and limited product. Today, we are sharing the fabulous new Mrs. box, the loveliest collection of ring boxes and a wedding heirloom. The Mrs. Box was born with the love of color and, from there, Summer Watkins Ball decided that it was time to finally replace that boring old ring box. (When did they become so boring?) As the Mrs. Team says “they weren’t always that way, but somewhere down the line these tiny little harbingers of joy were tossed to the wayside and doomed to spend an eternity feeling overweight and dressed in shabby colors. So we decided to change that.”- says, Summer Ball.

Take a look at their unique collection + shop for one of these colorful boxes of joy!

We are so excited to offer the best deal around town with our patch pals over at the Dandelion Patch! We are back with more tips from our pro Heidi Kallett, and also a reminder about sending us your love story!

DW: Is the Dandelion Patch team a diverse group of individuals that can help any type of couple?

DP: The Dandelion Patch is comprised of a creative and dedicated team of professionals that are trained to help  you bring your vision to reality. Our in house team of Graphic Designers  is at your disposal to find creative solutions for every theme, project and almost every budget! We can (and do!) work to incorporate your  ‘personal brand’ throughout your special day, seamlessly and stress-free.

DW: What is the biggest lesson you have learned being in the event-paper industry?

DP: In the event paper industry, we are fortunate to be one of the first to get a glimpse into the décor, design and desire of the couple because of the Save the Date. Additionally, your event paper is the most detailed project that you will work with during your event planning. From individual place cards with proper menu selections, to the welcome note and ceremony program… we cover it all.
