dupont charm

Vanessa and Zach were married at the super charming Darlington House in Dupont. The intimate ceremony and reception were full of sweet, personal touches. I especially loved the bride's bouquet (one of the most beautiful I have seen!), peony filled milk glass vases and the vintage suitcase, which held cards for the bride and groom. A BIG thank you to Kate Headley for the lovely photos and to Sidra Forman for the gorgeous flowers. You ladies are amazing! Congratulations, V + Z! ~Jessica

rustic chic

I have a new obsession. Creating inspiration boards. I could literally spend the day dreaming up new and different (vintage charm to sleek and modern) weddings. Obsessed! Below is a "rustic chic" board that I created (with the help of my fab-o assistant, Cara) today. We're loving the muted blue/grey palette and the pancake bar. Yep- a pancake bar... with the fixins!

Bride & Groom

I was so excited to receive the newest issue of Washingtonian Bride & Groom yesterday! This magazine is always loaded with eye candy and fabulous real weddings so I couldn't wait to dig into it. I'm loving the Green Day spread which boasts beautiful inspiration for eco-friendly flowers. The bouquets are ah-mazing! Bride & Groom is a great resource for DC brides (and grooms!) and we couldn't be more flattered to be included in the guide of DC's top wedding vendors. Be sure to checkout the Summer/Fall 2010 issue. Happy planning!

gown perfection

What do you think? I'm really feeling the flowy ruffles. Girly, romantic, sweet perfection.
