The Power of Pantone

January 27, 2016

Inspired by Disney’s live version of the classic fairy tale “Cinderella” as well as the dreamy Pantone 2016 color of the year combination, we wanted to create a look that felt romantic, feminine, a bit whimsical, and completely timeless.  This team designed everything around the Pantone colors of Rose Quartz and Serenity,  silver, and that classic “Cinderella” blue that we all know and love, which created the most beautiful contrast against the stony grays of Airlie’s Spanish steps. They the chose silver accented place settings and candelabras that paired perfectly with the dainty paper goods designed by Twila & Co. Cakes in Art created a stunning dessert table featuring a duo of cakes and French macaroons, and the flowers designed by Succulents & Saffron brought in just the right amount of whimsy to really bring this a fairy tale to life!! Enlightened Styles crafted the perfect makeup for our gorgeous bride, who looked like a true princess in the gown provided by Ava Laurenne Bride. Every single detail of this magical day was captured by Stephanie Messick Photography.

For Your Seasonal, Maryland Wedding | Styled Shoot

September 15, 2015

Today, we are sharing what most people might expect to be a nautical-themed styled shoot in Maryland. Instead, it is a beautiful rustic shoot focusing on a variety of elements associated with Maryland. We couldn’t think of a better way to welcome the beautiful Fall season!
The Black Eyed Susan is the Maryland state flower that blooms from June through October and is perfect for an understated, earthy pop of vibrant yellow for summer and fall weddings. The fabulous design team decided to include other natural elements like burlap, lace, jugs, crocheted table pieces, and an old farm door for a table set over two original Jack Daniels whiskey barrels.
Using these staple items, the subtle colors of bronze, gold, and ivory were able to mesh but not distract from the overall design. It was all capped off with a large, suspended wagon wheel which made for the perfect floral chandelier. That’s our kind of statement piece!
Other details, along with the stationary, played off the Maryland theme incorporating the recognizable flag. The lace dress was inspired by the bohemian Lovely bridal salon, and we love the elegant and feminine feel it adds to this atmosphere.
Looking for something with a little added funk? Then the floral headpiece is for you!
We hope you enjoy this fabulously curated, styled shoot by some truly remarkable DC wedding vendors!

An Enchanting Event – Real Wedding of J + E

July 14, 2015

With the mountains in the background and colorful flowers in full bloom, Jenny and Eoin tied the knot. Charlottesville, Virginia, held a beautiful wedding, as a long-distance couple finally was able to be together in the same country.

Jenny and Eoin met in London and were engaged in Paris, which is why vintage postcards were set up all around their wedding day. They both studied in the UK for their Masters programs, but Jenny had to leave Europe before Eoin did. Finally, nine months later, the couple was together again, and this time for good.

The wedding details had a lot to do with the homes of both Jenny and Eoin, which are Ireland for Eoin and Virginia for Jenny. Jenny made a lot of her decor, such as the programs, menus, favor cards, etc. For their favors, they donated to two charities that were close to them: The Lost Dog and Cat Foundation and American Rivers.

It was a lovely day, filled with perfect weather and a perfect couple. Congratulations Jenny and Eoin!
