National Museum of Women in the Arts Understated Wedding

Jen and Chris wanted to have a “DC” wedding that everyone would enjoy – and without a doubt, they succeeded in creating a memorable and fun celebration for all! The romantic understated look was filled with white flowers by Amaryllis, simple white table settings, a patterned green table linen, and oodles of candles.

The National Museum of Women in the Arts allowed the couple to have multiple spaces to create separation and movement throughout the wedding; the ceremony on the first floor, the cocktail hour on the third floor with the exhibits, the dinner on the mezzanine, and then dancing on the first floor.

A. Dominick Events seamlessly led the planning and day, Occasions Caterers served the delicious menu, while Sound Connection kept the dance floor packed! Thank you to the oh-so-fabulous Abby of Abby Jiu Photography for sharing her breathtaking pics!

Sugarplum at the Newseum

Happy Friday! We can’t wait for our Wedding Workshop this Sunday! There a still a few spots left, so we hope you’ll join us and a panel of experts for a discussion of all things wedding!


We love spring events at the Newseum- the spectacular views and warm weather are a winning combination. Sugarplum Tents and Amaryllis Inc. kicked it up a notch, creating a stunning space.

Jewish Floral Wedding

Is everyone feeling as happy as I am today with this lovely weather? Ooo, it is spring! I ran the Cherry Blossom race yesterday, my favorite in D.C., and it just got me in me in the mood to see flowers and spring beauty – so, lucky for me, this wedding by Documentary Associates does the trick! Anna and Jon were married last June at 6th and I Synagogue with a pretty, pretty reception at The Fairmont, Washington DC.

And – While I have your attention, this is a friendly reminder to please join us on Sunday – yes, this Sunday – for our bridal workshop – we cannot wait!
