Celestial Jewel Toned Wedding At The Line Hotel DC | Laura + Mike

Back in November, we returned to the fabulous LINE Hotel for Laura and Mike’s wedding. Laura’s vision included words like celestial magic, sultry, and glitter encouraged - so I knew this was going to be an epic one! She and Mike, who resided in Adams Morgan, decided that The LINE Hotel would be the perfect venue to invite their guests to experience their colorful, eclectic neighborhood as they celebrated their marriage. Laura’s sweet mom Kim was also an integral part of the planning process and an amazing source of light and support. It was truly a joy and privilege to work with this entire family!

Their retro-inspired invitation suites by Emily Baird Design featured custom art (designed by the bride herself) of a window at The LINE, giving guests a peek at the magical occasion ahead. Laura was absolutely stunning in her Made With Love Bridal gown, with a tulle overskirt that provided two amazing looks for ceremony and reception. I loved the mismatched jewel toned ensembles for her bridesmaids + bridesman, complimented by rich jewel toned florals and lush potted plants by Sophie Felts.

Guests gathered on The LINE’s Vela Rooftop for the nuptials, overlooking amazing views of DC, followed by a feast fabulous dinner and dancing in Banneker Ballroom. Scroll ahead to see all of the pretty captured by The Madious, and cheers to Laura and Mike!

Office Tour and Branding Editorial - Washington DC Wedding Planner

You guys, I am so excited to take you inside my updated office space today! I have been hard at work these past couple months doing all the Spring cleaning and Marie Kondo-ing around here. My overall goal was to design a workspace that felt inspiring and consistent with our modern romantic brand. With a new wedding season just around the corner, I also collaborated with some of my favorite vendors here in DC to produce a fresh tablescape design to get us all in the Spring mood!

I received a lot of questions about where I found these office pieces, so I did my best to link all of the details at the bottom of this post. Hope you enjoy seeing a little behind the scenes of wedding planner life through these images by the amazing Lisa Ziesing!

Velvet and pink are easily two of my favorite things, so when I spotted this this velvet chair at World Market it was a no brainer.

Interesting layers and textures are the key to a curated, luxe dining experience. For this table scape design, I took cues from my brand’s colors as a starting point (tonal pinks, dusty rose, gold and black). We balanced out soft pink floral tones with matte black dinnerware and modern flatware. Mixed vintage glassware added dimension while tying the florals and place settings together. Monochromatic menu cards tied with a fun tassel completed the look.

I am all about tassels. They come in so many colors and sizes and are a cost effective way to add a beautiful accent to your wedding details. I’m also loving that black is becoming a more common color in wedding designs. It’s sleek, timeless and instantly ups the chic factor!

Last but not least, we managed to get my mini office assistant Moritz in on the fun! He is pretty much always by my side or on my lap while I’m working away.

Romantic Wedding At The Grand Lodge Of Maryland | Lauren + Spencer

Lauren and Spencer’s wedding day was what summer wedding dreams are made of! Lauren and I originally met when I coordinated her sister Beth Ann’s wedding, and I was so excited when she reached out to ask if I could be a part of her day, as well. They are such a wonderful family and I only wish they had more sisters so I could work with them again and again! It was no surprise that Spencer was one of the sweetest grooms, as well. He is so much fun to be around, and had Lauren smiling and laughing all day!

Lauren was absolutely stunning in her Paloma Blanca gown with flawless hair and makeup by Caitlyn Meyer. I loved the soft color scheme of the wedding day, starting with a pastel watercolor invitation suite by Dunkirk Designs, and the airy sage Show Me Your Mumu dresses Lauren picked for her bridesmaids. It was such an effortlessly elegant, breezy summer vibe! Enjoy these beautiful images by the always amazing Dyanna LaMora, and thank you to our wonderful vendor team tagged at the bottom of this post. So much love for you, Mr. and Mrs. Aucoin!
