A gorgeous sneak peak of the invitation suite designed by Allure Invitations to celebrate a very special couple getting married one month from today. Let the count down begin!


Inspired Baby Shower

I get to see a dear friend today who is just about to pop with her first new little one. They are waiting to find out what they are having so I was inspired today by this very chic DC Baby Shower that would be perfect for a boy or a girl on the way. Every detail of this shower is perfect- the calligraphy menu cards, the build a library for the new baby, and the perfect use of florals to accent the guest tables. It was all inspired by a Kate Spade color palette, so what is not to love!  I would love to pull up a chair {and mimosa} to this perfect party!

Married: Niki and Wesley

Niki and Wesley were married this winter, and their images just came to me from Daniel Doke Studio and, as always, truly showcase what a beautiful winter reception it was. Niki loved the feel of the city in the winter and incorporated that into elements of her day with snowflake accents on cocktail napkins, wishing tree cards, menu cards, and seating cards. The twinkling effect of the day was carried through the accents in Niki’s dress and accessories, the linens, and the lighting used for the reception. Following a traditional Greek Orthodox Ceremony 200 guests danced the night away atop the city skyline, some of my favorite images of the day are below. Congrats again Mr and Mrs Caron!!

Cheers to the weekend!

I cannot wait to begin my weekend in just a few short hours, we have a getaway on the water, date night, and lots of sun time scheduled this weekend here in Virginia. Here is a round up of some of my favorite links this week. Happiest Weekend to You!

Dress for Details

I love when a wedding feel and color scheme carries through every detail of the event. From ties, to dress, to shoes, to accessories- the dress of more than just the bride are integral to a cohesive look for your day. Below are some perfect pairings of dress and details to inspire your wedding day.

Modern Monograms

I recently saw one of these J Hill Design pieces in person and just fell in love with the unique take on a monogramed gift for a couple on your wedding gift list, to celebrate an engagement, or to order for your own home. The prints can be personalized to be travel inspired about the city you met in, became engaged in, or held your wedding in. You can also do a “merging states” print, based on the home state of both you and your other half. All of the options are fun, modern, and unique…making them the perfect gift in my opinion!
