loving lace!

I seemed to have developed a little obsession with lace. Lace is so soft, so romantic, so sweet... so chic! There are so many ways in which a bride can incorporate lace into her wedding day. I love the idea of a rustic vineyard wedding with old wooden farm tables and vintage lace table runners. Such a fabulous combination. Wrapping simple mason jars and glass containers in lace provides an instant (and inexpensive!) vintage feel. It's all about the little details!

margaret + nathan

Margaret and I met at the Washingtonian Unveiled Bridal Event last January and immediately hit it off. It felt like we had known one another for ages! I loved every minute of helping Margaret and Nathan plan their wedding. Margaret and I focused on the little details and special touches. We wanted their guests to experience something new and walk away feeling as though it was the best party they had ever attended. The day was perfect and I've definitely been feeling withdrawal. Totally normal for me, though! A special thank you to Danielle, at the Ronald Reagan Building, and to Deb Lindsey for the beautiful photos. I also have to give a shout out to Nick Perez, of Multiflor, for the completely stunning flowers. Nick really understood the vision and brought it to life. Thank you to our incredible team of vendors!

Let it Snow!

I'm amazed by the snow outside of my window! It's so pretty and couldn't have come at a more perfect time. It was so nice to have a snow day the week before Christmas. Snowmen, baking and present wrapping- such a fun way to spend a Saturday!
