Elegant, Vintage-Inspired Evergreen Museum & Library Wedding | Liesl & Daniel

Liesl and Danny’s Labor Day weekend wedding was filled with real emotion and joy as they started their new chapter together. It was so wonderful to see Liesl and Danny reunited, given that the majority of the planning process he had been deployed overseas serving our country. I loved working with Liesl and her sweet mom Kris to perfectly curate each detail for this wedding. They have such fabulous taste and were totally willing to be creative and think outside the box, which for me as their wedding planner was a dream!

Our design inspiration came from Liesl’s vision of old world Jane Austen and fairy magic, and the Evergreen Museum & Library in Baltimore was the perfect venue to make it happen. Effortlessly elegant was the name of the game! Neutral, soft colors, lots of greenery and pops of dusty blue were just so stunning in this setting.

Guests were invited to arrive 30 minutes prior to the ceremony start for welcome cocktails (always a great idea in my book!), and then headed through Evergreen’s sprawling manicured gardens to witness the happy couple’s I do’s. For their reception in Evergreen’s Carriage House, an epic floral installation by Steelcut Flower Co. served as a backdrop for the head table, along with wreaths of soft greenery floating above guests’ tables. Vintage-inspired furniture pieces and tabletop details completed the look. The celebration continued well into the night with dinner and dancing, plus a tarot card reader to boot!

Classic Multicultural Wedding at Black Horse Inn Virginia | Lacey & Marc

Happy holidays everyone! I have been on a major blogging hiatus during a wonderful busy wedding season, however I am so excited to dive back in and share more of our 2018 weddings! Kicking off with this beautiful one from this past May.

Lacey and Marc, who originally met at their local church group, had a classic, thoughtful celebration that included meaningful details as nods to their cultures and travels together. Marc proposed at the top of a mountain in the Scotland highlands, once he and Lacey reached the peak.

We focused their wedding design concept on reflecting their love and nature and the outdoors, as well as complimenting the natural beauty of the venue, The Black Horse Inn in Warrenton, Virginia. Guests were seated at tables named by cities all over the globe that had a special place in their story. Their wedding took place on derby day, so it made perfect sense for Lacey ride into the ceremony with her parents on horse & carriage (not to mention the Black Horse Inn’s beautiful stables fit the bill!). Grove Lettering Co. designed double sided ceremony programs, with a Chinese translation on the reverse side for Lacey’s family and friends who traveled in from her home country. Their ceremony was officiated by their Reverend from the church where they originally met. Following dinner, Lacey changed into a traditional red Chinese wedding dress to honor her culture. Guests danced the night away and enjoyed the specialty Scotch bar, a nod to the location where they we’re engaged.

Elegant St. Patrick's Day Wedding at Annapolis Waterfront Hotel | Emily & Mike

My 2018 wedding season kicked off with Emily and Mike's wedding on the bay in Annapolis, Maryland and it was one for the books. Emily and Mike met by sheer luck out with their friends one night in Baltimore, just before last call. They exchanged numbers and soon thereafter, Mike asked Emily out on their first date. One date lead to another, and the rest was history! 

When Emily first came to me, she described how she wanted to transform the ballroom at Annapolis Waterfront Hotel into a light, ethereal and romantic setting. We also wanted to include subtle, playful nods to St. Patrick's Day that aligned with that vision. Look ahead to these stunning images by Dyanna LaMora, and I would say mission accomplished!

Dunkirk Designs created a custom crest with mini shamrocks for their wedding programs, favors and cocktail napkins. We drew attention away from the ballroom's dark carpet with gorgeous draping and uplighting around the perimeter of the ballroom by Event Dynamics. Luxe rose velvet table linens adorned guests tables topped with romantic florals by Love Blooms DC. You could feel the love and joy in the air as guests danced and celebrated the new Mr. and Mrs. Crist. These two are truly lucky in love and I'm so happy to have been a part of their special day!
