Sophisticated and Romantic Wedding Reception in Washington DC: Elizabeth + Paul

posted by julianne

Are you ready swoon some more over Elizabeth and Paul’s elegant spring wedding in Washington DC!? (PS – Make sure you take a look at their elegant and traditional wedding ceremony first!) Their sophisticated soiree, captured by Kristen Gardner Photography, has so much pretty I can’t handle it. One of my favorite details? Those super cute DIY calligraphy escort cards made by the bride! And, you can’t beat the incredible view (overlooking The White House!) that The Hay-Adams provides. Don’t you just love this little city of ours?

From Elizabeth: Even though we didn’t hit the bloom week, the colors and feel that we chose went very well with the airy and light decor of our reception space and drew people’s focus out to the view which was the reason we chose the space.

Even though we live in DC, the majority of our guests did not. We really wanted to give them that DC experience that only a local could provide. Our wedding website had a curated list of all our favorite restaurants, including the places where we first met and dated as well as a list of our favorite museums and local sites.

We definitely splurged on our location, The Hay-Adams hotel. However, their newly renovated ballroom was the type of space that could give our guests a unique opportunity while in town. The balcony overlooks the White House and our guests spent lots of time taking photos with the White House in the background. I can’t tell you how many of those photos ended up as Christmas cards!

I took a calligraphy class during the lead up to the wedding, so I was able to test out my skills on the escort and place cards. I can’t say they were perfect but, I had a lot of fun spending time with friends who helped out and it made the time waiting for the wedding pass a little more quickly.

From Elizabeth: Paul proposed in the most romantic way in Paris so I wanted the wedding to reflect that without being too much of a theme. We went with a palate of blush, pink, fresh green, white and cream and hoped that the wedding would coincide with cherry blossom season.

When we first started planning the wedding we had so many DIY plans! Turns out, being crafty is not as easy as it looks. I did have a large hand in designing the family crest we used on our invitations!

Destination Weddings and Honeymoons On the Outer Banks

posted by julianne

You know what I love most about having a wedding on the East Coast? Everything you and your guests could need or want is all around you! Just a short drive from downtown Washington DC is the Outer Banks of North Carolina. Sure, we all know about the Outer Banks for summer vacations and their beautiful beaches, but have you considered it for your wedding, or better yet, for your honeymoon?

Destination Weddings and Honeymoons In the Outer Banks1

Two of our friends who live here in DC were married on the Outer Banks in Duck. They like to vacation on the Outer Banks, so it was a natural fit for their wedding celebration. They wanted a destination wedding on a beach, but wanted all of their friends and family to be able to make it. As wedding guests, it was awesome for us because we were able to celebrate our friends and be there for them, and then we were able to turn it into a whole beach vacation with our friends.

Our friends got married on a weekend in late August when it was so hot and sticky in DC! It was great to get out of the city and beat the heat a little bit. We rented a big house on the beach with some other friends who were also attending the wedding. For the days leading up to the wedding we went to the beach and laid by the pool – just got out of the city for a while and really enjoyed ourselves!

Destination Weddings and Honeymoons In the Outer Banks2 Destination Weddings and Honeymoons In the Outer Banks3

There was so much to do on the Outer Banks! In addition to the beach, we also did some biking and went for runs on the beach. One day we went to see the lighthouse at Cape Hatteras and also visited the Wright Brothers National Memorial in Kill Devil Hills. My husband and his buddies also managed to squeeze in a few rounds of golf!

Our vacation was capped off by their wedding festivities. Their wedding was at the Sanderling Inn with the ceremony outside overlooking the beach at followed by dinner and dancing…lots of dancing! Our friends who got married also stayed a few extra days on the Outer Banks for their honeymoon before coming back to reality.

Destination Weddings and Honeymoons In the Outer Banks

The Outer Banks is an ideal spot for your wedding and honeymoon. There are so many different choices and things to do on the Outer Banks from the beaches to boating to loads of off-beach adventures. You and yours could be married with the sand between your toes and then you can extend your wedding right on into your honeymoon! Plus the Outer Banks is so easy to get to for you and your guests. It offers a destination wedding without the drama of an airport or a passport!

As a wedding guest myself, I definitely encourage you to consider the Outer Banks for your wedding and your honeymoon. There is so much for you and your wedding guests to do on the Outer Banks that I know your guests will want to turn it into a mini-vacation! Your guests will thank you for having your wedding on the Outer Banks!

Sunday Brunch: Deb Lindsey Photography

posted by kate

Good morning DC area wedding lovers! Are you ready to spend another Sunday morning with one of our great sponsors? Deb Lindsey of Deb Lindsey Photography approaches weddings in the same way one would cover a news assignment – telling the whole story of the day and being as much of a “fly on the wall” as she can. Deb thinks in terms of news because she spent 17 years with The Washington Post as a photo editor. She lets the action happen in front of her eyes rather than inserting herself into what’s going on. She looks for details, moments, emotion and action. Her ultimate goal is to create beautiful photos that are clean, uncluttered images, full of love and joy. Relaxed and natural is Deb’s approach to weddings!  For more on Deb Lindsey Photography, be sure to visit her website or check out all of their past features on United With Love.

DIY Terrarium Wedding Centerpieces

posted by julianne

We have the cutest DIY project for you and your wedding today! But, this time no glue or baking is involved, so even if you don’t fancy yourself as crafty, you can still do this one. We are sharing a DIY wedding centerpiece made of succulents that I had a great time creating with Petal’s Edge, wedding florists based in Alexandria. Michelle Lindsay Photography was with to capture all the fun! If you’re searching for a unique centerpiece, think about a succulent terrarium! These simple and modern arrangements are a perfect (and gorgeous!) way to bring the outdoors inside your wedding reception space. You can attend a workshop with Petal’s Edge or use our tutorial below to create this DIY wedding project. (P.S. – They are hosting another terrarium design class on April 6 in Alexandria.)

Succulent Terrarium Michelle Lindsay Photography

Supplies:

  • Low, broad container
  • Succulents
  • Cactus potting mix soil
  • Small pebbles
  • Sphagnum moss
  • Horticultural charcoal
  • Decorative elements of your choice

DIY Succulent Terrarium Wedding Centerpiece

To Make Soil:

To prevent mold and bacteria, it’s important that you equip your terrarium with its own built-in filtration process.  This is achieved by mixing activated charcoal into your soil. Charcoal is an excellent means of keeping your terrarium clean and fungus-free. To mix your self-filtering soil, add your cacti or peat potting mix to a large mixing bowl. You’ll need enough for a 1” to 2” layer of soil for a small terrarium or 3”-4” for a larger container. Next, mix in your charcoal. A good ratio is one tablespoon of charcoal for one cup of soil. Next, add water and mix. Add enough to moisten the soil mixture thoroughly, but not so much that your mixture becomes fluid and muddy. It should stick to your hands, but still clump up on its own. Adding water now pre-waters your terrarium and ensures even watering throughout.

DIY Succulent Centerpieces (2) DIY Succulent Centerpieces (4)

To Make Terrarium:

Line your clean contained with a ½”-1” base layer of pebbles. Next, add your sphagnum moss. Add about a ½” layer and ensure it reaches the walls of your container, as this layer will prevent soil erosion down into your drainage layer. Over the sphagnum, sprinkle a thin, but thorough layer of additional charcoal for extra filtration. Now it’s time to add your soil mix. Using a spoon or a scooper, carefully spoon the mixture loosely into your container, being careful not to smear too much onto the walls of your vessel to ensure a clean presentation.

DIY Succulent Centerpieces (5)

Create small impressions into the soil where you want your plants to go. A good tip is to start with the largest plant from your selection and arrange the additional, smaller plants around the focal plant. Allow for at least one square inch of soil space per plant. Position your plants gently, but firmly into the soil, lightly packing them in with additional soil over the tops of the roots. Follow up with adding a layer of moss or pebbles, if desired. This serves the dual purpose of preventing your soil from drying out prematurely and also making your terrarium look good! A layer of sand in your succulent terrariums looks incredible. Finally, add any adornments or décor you have chosen as your finishing touch!

Elegant Rustic Wedding Reception in Virginia: Sara + Brett

When nature’s beauty meets rustic stylings, the result is the laid-back elegance of today’s wedding in Virginia. Sara and Brett celebrated their “I Do’s” under the dreamiest of barns! (But first: make sure you check out their traditional outdoor wedding ceremony!) Think draped curtains, string lighting, and chandeliers. Not to mention, lots of pretty (and country-fied!) floral designs! Lelia Marie Photography was behind the lens to capture every sweet moment. Aren’t we lucky!?

Sara’s wedding planning advice for other DC-area couples:

Take your time! You can never be too organized. Don’t pressure yourself with a short engagement. I never really understood how much time and planning was involved until I was in the middle of planning one myself.
