Corcoran Winter Wedding

November 26, 2012

Jen and Chris were married one year ago on 11/11/11. For a girl obsessed with number patterns, this was a dream date – to complement her dream husband!  The Corcoran was able to accommodate the 180 guests while also offering a beautiful ambiance with high ceilings and separate spaces for cocktails and dinner and dancing.

Jen, being from New Jersey, wanted to have a huge cocktail reception – full of action stations, passed hors d’oeuvres and grazing stations. Occasions Caterers fit the bill and offered guests a delicious menu with a lovely presentation.

As for decor, Edge designed a jaw-dropping 8 foot tree with hanging crystals for the escort card “table”. During cocktails, Jen and Chris hired Jamie Turner (who you may have seen by the Torpedo Factory playing his water glasses) as the entertainment. This was a nod to Chris, who is a music teacher!

Well, I could go on and on…but, I think the pictures speak for themselves…enjoy!

Historic Jordan Spring’s Wedding

September 13, 2010

I hope that everyone had an incredible weekend! First up, I want to remind you of the fabulous Jewelry Give Away by Suzanne Somersall Jewelry Designs. I am drawing a winner on FRIDAY – so enter ASAP!

Next, we have the lovely wedding of Aileen and Jason that took place last September at Historic Jordan Springs.

This relaxed wedding has such sweet details — the cute harvest rustic farm items like the woven baskets and apples, the adorable umbrellas (make the most of a rainy wedding day and invest in some cute rain gear!), and the vintage donut cart.

Historic Jordan Springs, the venue for both ceremony and reception, was so pretty. It also provided the couple with an on-site wedding coordinator, linens, flowers, and catering.  Versatile and creative, the venue allowed Aileen and Jason to choose their own theme – in this case, rustic autumn – and helped to create their ideal wedding in any way they could… they even ventured out in the morning to pick fresh apples for the couple’s décor!

The ceremony, which was supposed to take place outdoors, was moved onto Historic Jordan Spring’s wrap-around porch, due to the rain.  Despite this change of plans, the ceremony location turned out to be perfect.

The Hillbilly Gypsies, a bluegrass band, ensured that absolutely no one remained sitting.  In leiu of cake, Carpe Donut was served – and there is nothing that compares to hot, fresh donuts!
