Hello all,

Please welcome Cory and Charlie Chapman!  This was a really special couple to work with as they are my family!  Yay!!!  Cory is my first cousin.  So when he and Charlie decided to do a vow renewal and asked me plan it for them, I was all in!  They were married privately and never had the chance to celebrate their union with family and friends.  So, not only was this a renewal of their commitment and love for one another, it was also a chance to enjoy family and friends in their honor.  Over the course of the year of planning, their color scheme changed quite a bit, but ultimately, they settled on shades of purple with silver accents.  We all know, this made my heart skip a beat!  {I love purple!}  They also wanted a more modern venue.  Samuel Riggs IV Alumni Center located in College Park, MD was the final selection.   Charlie turned out to be one of my most detail oriented brides. Lol! She was an Etsy fanatic.  As you will see below in the photos, she selected a lot of cool items to personalize their day. (more…)

Onikika loves the vintage look.   So, we knew that Newton White Mansion located in Mitchellville, MD would be the perfect fit.  It is a stately mansion with such a romantic feel.  Onikika selected the colors soft pink, lime green, and gold. These are perfect colors for summer.  We added lots of candlelight and vintage lanterns to complete the decor. (more…)

Hello all…. We have a love and passion for weddings, but we also plan other events.  In May of this year, we assisted the Marquis family in planning their son’s Bar Mitzvah.  We planned their daughter’s Bat Mitzvah a few years ago. So we were thrilled when they came to us for their son’s celebration. Family and friends from all over the US joined us to celebrate this wonderful time in Aleks’s life.  Aleks loves all things video game.  So it was a no brainer that theme of his Mitzvah would be “Video Arcade”.   The planning began with Aleks telling me all about his favorite video games and characters.  We were on a way to loads of fun! The room was filled with love, great games, and tasty food.  Thank you to the staff at Holiday Inn- Solomons.  The food was excellent and the service was superb!  A special thank you toAmanda with Amanda MacMahon Photography for providing these amazing photos!
