Katie and Alex Tie The Knot!

Sorry for being completely out of touch and not updating my blog in quite a little bit but I’ve been busy planning my daughter’s first birthday party (can’t believe she’s already one!), wrapping up Fall wedding season (only one more to go!) and also attempting to (unsuccessfully) train our new puppy, Baylee! Let’s just say…I drink a lot of wine once everyone is in bed! :)

This one is an oldie but goodie and I had to share it with everyone! Katie and Alex were married at Stonewall Golf Club in Gainesville last September and the personal touches throughout the day and night were to die for! Katie was absolutely stunning in her wedding gown and Alex was a smitten groom with great taste! <3 I’m so glad I was able to be part of this beautiful day and wish them all the best!

Michal and Russell’s Epic Wedding

Can’t believe it’s already been a year since this epic wedding! There were handmade painted sunglasses, hangover kits, a candy display, a photo booth and LOTS of dancing! I have never seen so many people tossed into the air in one night!  Michal and Russell have actually known each other since they were kids.  After taking separate paths for a few years, they came together as adults and decided they should spend the rest of their lives together. I’m so glad they did!

Best wishes, Michal and Russell!

Annie and Josh’s Newsworthy Wedding

I will always remember Annie and Josh’s wedding day!  First of all, I fell in love with this family from the minute I chatted with the bride’s mother. I knew they were going to be a great group to work with, and I was so lucky that I was chosen to be their Month Of Coordinator.  Second, the ceremony and reception were held at the gorgeous Newseum in DC. The Newseum is not only an awesome museum, but it also has a ton of great event space with amazing views of the city.  Last but not least, this was my last wedding of 2014 before my daughter, Audrey, was born (she made her appearance a few weeks early)!  I even emailed Annie’s mom from the hospital to let her know that the baby had arrived as they had been a part of my pregnancy from the very beginning!

Annie and Josh seriously looked like they had just stepped out of a magazine that day; they were gorgeous!  I can’t say enough about this couple, their families and their friends; there was so much love in the room that night.  It was definitely a special evening and a great way to end the season! Lots of love to this couple, their families and their friends!

An Irani/Pakistani/Bengali Wedding

Sarah and Kaiser were full planning clients of mine so I was lucky enough to be involved in their Irani/Pakistani/Bengali wedding weekend from the very beginning!

Their wedding events started on Friday evening with the mehndi, which included LOTS of dancing and amazing food.  This was a great way to kick off the weekend and made me even more excited for Saturday night!  Sarah and Kaiser even brought me back a gorgeous outfit from Bangladesh for my birthday that I was able to wear to the mehndi…luckily my big pregnant belly could still fit in it once the wedding rolled around!

The wedding reception took place on Saturday evening at the Mellon Auditorium in DC. It was an absolutely gorgeous reception for 300 guests complete with gold candelabras and floral arrangements, amazing uplighting, four buffets by Bollywood Bistro (highly recommend them!) and great entertainment.  It was absolutely stunning!  I’m so glad that I was able to be a part of this beautiful day and wish Sarah and Kaiser many years of happiness!

A Bubbly Bride in the Bathtub

This was a wedding to remember!  On my way home from the first meeting at Sam’s parent’s home in Vienna, I decided that I wanted to be part of this family. They were all so much fun, and I knew that their wedding day was going to be something special! This couple was up for anything (my first bride to hop into a bathtub in her wedding dress!). Sam and Morgan really just wanted to have a fun, memorable day with their closest family and friends, and that’s exactly what they did!  They chose Vienna Presbyterian Church for their ceremony and Westwood Country Club for the reception. When the day finally came, the weather was perfect, there were cupcakes made by the bride’s mother, a guest sang “Purple Rain” during the reception (he was awesome!), and everyone had an absolute blast.  I can’t say enough about this couple, their families and their rockstar vendor team…looking forward to keeping in touch with all of them!

Rachel and Jon’s Fit-To-Print Wedding

Where do I even begin with this fairytale wedding?! These two are amazingly strong people, a perfectly loving couple and an absolute pleasure to work with. I was so sad to see our time together come to an end!  Rachel and Jon were Full Planning clients of mine so I was lucky enough to work with them throughout their entire engagement to plan the perfect day.  After looking at a few venues, they decided to get married at The Willard Hotel, DC in The Crystal Room. It was definitely the right choice as you can see from the pictures!

Rachel was a stunning bride, and Jon looked extra handsome that day in his tux. These two should definitely be in print…oh wait, they were!  Rachel and Jon were highlighted in The Washington Post; how great is that?! http://www.washingtonpost.com/lifestyle/style/on-love-rachel-levick-and-jonathan-corley/2014/09/25/e32d64b6-426a-11e4-b437-1a7368204804_story.html

The entire day from start to finish was something I will forever remember, as there was just so much love present at that gathering. It was definitely a perfect day for all!

Best wishes to you two!

Caitlin and Steven’s Beautiful Day

It’s been a little bit since I’ve worked on my blog as we’ve been busy getting ready for Baby Bryan’s arrival (yay!) but as soon as I saw these pictures, I knew I had to take a minute to show these off!  Caitlin and Steven were married at Whitehall Manor in Bluemont, VA this past August and were just the cutest couple I think I’ve ever seen (doesn’t hurt that they are absolutely gorgeous!).  Caitlin was an elegant, excited bride and Steven was an easy-going, smitten groom…they were the perfect pair!  The ceremony was held outdoors within the trees of Whitehall and the reception took place indoors complete with a gorgeous dessert display, beautiful floral centerpieces, an awesome escort card board with antique keys, quilt squares for the guest book and lots and lots of dancing, laughing and great times!  Congratulations, Caitlin and Steven, it was an absolute pleasure working with you two and I wish you many, many years of continued happiness!

Loren and Dan Cross the Finish Line

This wedding was a “race” to the finish for Loren and Dan!  They are both triathletes and actually Dan proposed to Loren after one of her races so they brought the theme with them throughout the entire event complete with a bicycle for decoration, a finish line for their introductions and even racing belts for that added triathlon touch.  Their wedding reception took place at Lansdowne Resort and it couldn’t have been a prettier, more perfect day.  I’m so glad that I was able to be a part of this beautiful day and wish them many years of happiness!

Marie and Kyle’s DC Wedding

I can’t say enough about Marie and Kyle and how much I enjoyed working with them to create their perfect wedding day.  This wedding had it all – an amazing couple, a rockstar team of vendors, a gorgeous venue and really great food including late night snacks of sausages and cannolis…is this real life?!?  Marie and Kyle’s wedding day started with a beautiful ceremony at Holy Rosary Church in DC and ended with a kickass reception at The Mayflower Hotel.  Weddings like this remind me how very lucky I am to be able to do what love and be able to meet such amazing people like these two! <3

Kellie and Chris’ Purple and Gold Wedding

There are some weddings that I never want to end…this was one of them!  Kellie and Chris are both JMU grads (my alma mater) so I was instantly bonded with these two.  Kellie was just the sweetest bride and Chris couldn’t stop smiling all day…they were just the cutest couple around! There were personal touches throughout the reception including family photos, little stories on each of the tables personalized to the group sitting there and they even played the JMU fight song – it was a great day!  Unfortunately, Kellie and Chris’ dog passed away right before the wedding but they were able to honor him by using “Blue Crab” as their ring bearer’s pillow, it was a really special addition to the ceremony.  Oh and did I mention that the groom’s band played at a local Leesburg bar the night before the wedding welcoming all of their guests??  They are so cool!

Go Dukes!
