Labor Day Bash!

Happy Moodboard Monday!

With all the hustle and bustle in Washington, DC, you may not have had time to put something together for this year’s Labor Day celebration. No worries because we have you covered! So the question remains, how will you be spending your Labor Day this year? Whether you already have plans ready to go, or you haven’t even began thinking about your plans yet, we have some great tips for your Labor Day bash! From DIY projects to recipes, we have gathered up all kinds of ideas and we are here to share them with all of you!

For those of you looking for fun table settings or decor items that look great and won’t break the bank, check out your local craft stores such as Michaels. Another great idea which most wouldn’t think of is to look around your own house. Keep an eye out for vases, wine/liquor bottles, medicine bottles, food cans, food jars, and baskets. All of these items have multiple uses, and all you have to do is use your imagination! For example, medicine bottles and wine/liquor bottles can all be used as flower vases or as a stand to hold a sign. Similarly, food jars and food cans can be used to put utensils or straws in 🙂 For more check out our Pinterest page!

Have fun with it! Enjoy!

Summer Pennsylvania Wedding

Happy Wedding Wednesday everyone!

Today we are sharing one of our summer weddings that took place in Pennsylvania at the picturesque venue, Omni Bedford Springs Resort. With a location this pretty, a gorgeous day, and a fabulous couple, this wedding could not have turned out better. The photographer, Tom Rollo of Grace Photography, captured just how beautiful it was.

Not only does a pretty venue, gorgeous day, and a fabulous couple make the perfect wedding, you also need great wedding details and decor to bring it all together! With our passion in creating one of a kind wedding details and decor, we took on the challenge of doing just that for A + J’s beautiful wedding, with details ranging from signage to personalized menus for all the guests, just to name a few. Please check out the amazing photos from A + J’s wedding! I hope you enjoy them as much as we did!

Wedding Wednesday | Mexican Themed Wedding

Happy Wedding Wednesday Everyone!

Today, I have the professional photos from our Mexican Themed Wedding we did during the beginning of August! After two months of planning and putting together decorations, all the hard work paid off. The wedding turned out amazing and the happy couple was able to enjoy the evening with their friends and family that came in from all over the world to celebrate with them. Their photographer, Denis Largeron, did a fantastic job of capturing this couple’s special day. Also, I would like to give a big thanks to all the other vendors that helped me pull off yet another fabulous wedding. Without all of you, none of this would have been possible 🙂

I hope you enjoy these photos as much as we did!
