Hello all,

Please welcome Onikika and Sean Hines!  I began working with Onikika a year ago on plans for her big day.  Her main focus was , “Anything unique and different!” In the spirit of unique and different, the guests were asked to wear all white and the bride wore a stunning pink wedding gown with beading. 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!

Congratulations Aleks!  Thank you for allowing us to be a part of your special day! (more…)

Hello all,

Please welcome Lisa and Jarratt Thompson!  Lisa and Jarratt needed assistance with their florals/decor and making sure their wedding day ran smoothly. Their wedding reception which was held at the historic and romantic Historic St. Mary’s located in St. Mary’s City, MD on May 9, 2015.  It was such a perfect day, no rain and plenty of sunshine. Lisa selected the colors coral and teal. These are perfect colors for summer. They are so lively and fun! We blended these colors with candles and crystal bling accents to create a romantic and elegant tablescape.  Over 5 different types of roses along with a variety of peach and salmon colored flowers were used in the designs!

They exchanged vows on the lawn overlooking the water.  Guests enjoyed cocktails and a view of the river.  They were then welcomed  under a grand tent with chandeliers and superb decor for dinner and dancing.

Thank you Maggie and Betty, with Birds of a  Feather Photography for these beautiful photographs that captured the love of this beautiful day.

Hello all,

Your cake design plays a large part in the overall look of your reception.  The wedding cake typically sits near the Bride and Groom’s table, so the it must have just as much of a “WOW” factor as your bridal table.  Years ago, cake toppers and a few flowers were the extent of a fabulous cake design.  Boy have things changed!  Yes, there are many cute cake toppers, but cakes have evolved into a work of art.  Do you agree?

Hello all,

We are so inspired by anything unique and different.  While shopping for wedding dresses, brides always search for that dress with a WOW factor and one that flatters them the most.  The next step is to accessorize with jewels and shows.  How about adding a cape or bolero? This can be an easy and cost effective way of creating 2 different looks for your wedding day without having to purchase two completely different dresses.  You can wear the cape or bolero during the ceremony and take it off for the reception.    Check out the creative designs of the cape/bolero below. The designs ranges from sheer overlays to ornate jewelry.  I am in love with them all! :o) (more…)
