Washington, D.C. Wedding Blog – Real Weddings, Inspiring Ideas, Planning Tools, & Top Vendors in D.C., Maryland, and Virginia

Archive for the ‘Everyone’s Talking About’ Category


I often get inquiries from new industry vendors, who are trying to break into the market, and who have a passion for weddings just like me!  Well, recently when I met Stephanie Olvey, the Founder of Fortique, a lightbulb went off — Fortique is the perfect platform for creative vendors just starting out in D.C.

Fortique is on a mission to create a transparent and effective marketplace to buy and sell local creative services.  Specifically targeting amateur and freelance service providers, Fortique provides a simple and powerful tool for local creatives to monetize skills and presents a cost-effective solution for consumers looking for assistance with interior design, event planning, personal styling, and more. Don’t you love this concept?!

Whether you are looking to be a vendor – or looking for a vendor – contact Stephanie!

Love Life Images New Look

Earlier this month, Love Life Images revamped their site and got a whole new look! We adore it almost as much as we love their work!

P.S. How sweet is their April photo of the month, where a member of the wedding party is comforting the groom?
