These Are The Days To Remember!

Our little Ava had her first ballet recital today. I am on one proud Mama! It was so much fun watching her. There is something just so cute and special about little girls in pink tutus!

Fall is Approaching!

So as many of you are gearing up for "Back to School", we are actually gearing up for a very busy 8 weeks. From September 1st down through October 31st we have 9 weddings! That's right, 9! I can't even believe how that all happened, and we honestly couldn't be more excited. Talk about busy, busy, busy!

Here are just a few of the venues we have the pleasure of working with this Fall:

Sunset Crest Manor - Chantilly, VA 

Kentlands Mansion - Gaithersburg, MD 

Maggiano's - Tyson's Corner, VA

Bush Tabernacle - Purcellville, VA

We couldn't be more thrilled with the weddings and events we have this Fall, and I know we will definitely be busy bees working to get all of the details in order for each bride. Thank goodness for our assistants and friends and family who help us with it all! 
Fall happens to be my favorite season because not only do I get to break out my boots and scarves again it's also the season of my birthday! Lots of festivities happening in the next few months and I'm so excited to see how it all goes down!

Secret Story

The always reliable Essie nail polish. Treated myself to a new shade from Target and of course it's pink. The name of the shade is "Secret Story". I guess everyone has one.

DC Sculpture Gardens

I have to post these pics. We were at the National History Museum in DC last week and It was my first time at the Sculpture Gardens. Ava got to put her feet in the water and it was just so cool there.

Happy 1st Birthday to my Eden!

Our Eden bug turns one today! Happy birthday baby! She doesn't even have any teeth yet but she took her first steps today. What a memorable year, we love you! This is a picture of her today when I gave her her first lollipop and I took a pic of her and her first pair of shoes. We also made a ceramic tile with a footprint of her foot at the Playseum in honor of her birthday. We've been celebrating all month and she loves us singing Happy Birthday to her.

The Washington Arts Club- Sara and Cory 6.30.12

It was a hot day and everyone was affected by the power outages and storms, but Cory and Sara had such a beautiful wedding at the Washington Arts Club in DC on 6.30.12!

Here are some of my pics of their big day. My favorite elements of the wedding were all the handmade art work of centerpieces from friends and family.  Not to mention: Sara also did all of the programs and most of the decor herself!
This was their program.  The couple shared and wrote their own vows.  The dinner menu was attached to the back of the program.
This was the bride and groom's table shared with the bridal party.
Each guest had a handmade placecard with their name on it.
Cakes by Jen Rozelle of RSVP Catering
The guests got their table numbers from this piece made by Sara.
Sara and Cory had favor bags filled with pie from New Orleans and they also gave away recycled pencil crayons and coloring books.
This is the upstairs library of The Arts Club
Inside the main lobby.
One of my favorite parts of the night when the bride and groom are happy and everything on our end went well!

Pink Candy Table

So who was the weirdo trying to pick all the candy "pink" chocolate mints out of this Wegmans candy bin for my daughter Eden's first birthday this weekend? Can we say a nutty candy table event planner mom that's who!
