Happy Monday! First off, congratulations to Kim, our winner of the Hela Spa giveaway! Kim, please email Kristin for the details on next steps.
Kat and Robert are one of those beyond-words-adorable couples! It is almost just not fair! In addition to their dashing good looks, they had an incredibly beautiful wedding day, that I am thrilled to share with you! Photographer extraordinaire Abby Jiu captured the celebration from the nuptials at Holy Trinity to the Chupacabra late night Taco truck – it is almost too good to be true! Enjoy!
There is no doubt about it, that the National Museum of Women in the Arts is one of the most incredible wedding venues in Washington. It has a prime downtown location, lovely architectural detail, and beautiful art. Maya and Steve’s wedding was planned by Terri Eaves, the owner of the fabulous firm, Bash and it too matches all of the above adjectives
Hello and happy Monday! This morning, savor a fresh cup of coffee and welcome the week with the beautiful wedding of Kate and Aaron…Thank you to Jennifer Domenick of Love Life Images for sharing the lovely pics!
Today’s wedding is like no other wedding that I have ever seen! The unique and slightly spooky decor makes this the perfect wedding to get in the mood for Halloween this weekend…It’s a total scream!
Planner, Terri Eaves of Bash shares a bit of insight on the wedding inspiration,
“Ally and Josh wanted their wedding to be a reflection of their life together. Fun, untraditional and a party! They love specialty brews, concerts and music. They are also night owls-their ceremony did not start until 8:00pm! Initially, Ally’s ideas scared me! However, once I met Ally and saw the inspiration boards she had created on her Mac, I knew this wedding would be one to remember. The first and only venue that came to mind was Long View Gallery. Ally and Josh love art and an urban space was the only one that would fit the bill. There were a few things that Ally had to have on her wedding day: a short, vintage inspired dress, skulls, Baccara roses, leopard print and aubergine. The mis-matched look wasn’t too hard to pull together at all!
As guests arrived, they entered thru the front of the gallery. High and low cocktail tables with sheer leopard print linens were topped with low arrangements of red flowers. The bar had clear chandeliers hanging overhead, and across from the bar was Four Star Combo, a rockabilly and classic honky tonk band. Guests moved up the ramp towards the back half of the gallery where the ceremony took place. Seating was arranged on three sides and pipe and drape separated the ceremony area from what would later become the dinner area and dance floor.
The wedding party (guys dressed in all black, with red print ties and Converse, ladies in all black with a single Baccara rose), walked down the aisle to Four Star Combo’s version of “All Shook Up”. Ally entered with her father, wearing a Vineyard Collection dress with hint of tulle peaking out underneath, and red patent heels, to “Sexy and 17″. Ally’s mom officiated the ceremony.”
