Longview Gallery recently went under an expansion project, and the results…well…they are awesome. The 8,500 square feet of divisible historic warehouse space boasts 20 foot ceilings, finished concrete floors, loads of natural light, and outdoor space in the historic Blagden Ally. It’s an urbanites total dream space!
Located in the heart of Georgetown just steps away from Dean & Deluca, DC’s newest event space, Powerhouse, opened with a bang last week. The two story venue with 6,500 square feet of event space, exposed brick and steel beams is the perfect blank canvas for a rehearsal dinner, ceremony or reception. At last week’s event the “industrial meets organic” floral and event decor by Amaryllis, Inc. truly transformed the space, and the food by Design Cuisine was definitely a crowd pleaser.
Oh hello December! How did you arrive so soon? My goodness, it is here and the holiday season is as busy as ever. I kicked off the month this past weekend by working a series of lovely events! How about you all?
Today, I am here with the fun 6th and I Synagogue and Longview Gallery wedding of Rachel and Simon from A. Dominick Events.
For the ceremony, the bride’s sister made Rachel and Simon’s chuppah from materials collected from their family and friends. It represented the love and support offered for their marriage. It was designed in the shape of two intertwining trees, much like Rachel and Simon’s ketubah – each branch representing a different part of their family and friends coming together in love.
To pay homage to Simon’s English roots, the men dressed in morning suits for the wedding. Then, two of the bride’s cousins sang during the ceremony, and surprised the bride’s brother and sister-in-law as they walked down the aisle by singing the same song they had walked down the aisle to in their wedding.
For this international couple, Rachel and Simon had a large custom map printed and framed that allowed guests to tack the places where they had traveled from to attend the wedding. The escort cards were hung from the ceiling and designed to look like luggage tags and every table had a large luggage tag with different airport city code as the table names. Then, the menu cards were designed in keeping with the theme, to look like airmail.
Hi Hi Hi! I hope that you all had fabulous weekends! Today, I am back with a gor-g-eous wedding by Bash at The Corcoran. This is definitely a huge dose of design inspiration to start off your week. LOVE.
Ashley and Christopher were married this past May and I love their intimate brunch reception after the ceremony! Blue Sky Films captured the day starting with the ceremony at Trinity United Methodist Church, followed by the brunch, then a reception at the Ritz-Carlton – what a celebration!
