Wedding Wednesday: RBlovestory

Happy Wedding Wednesday! I love my sensational clients and receiving exciting emails! So when former sensational bride, Ryan, reached out yesterday to share she and her hubby's wedding day video highlights, my day was made...I've probably watched it 10 times already haha. The couple tied the knot on June 19, 2015 at Ebenezer AME Church in Fort Washington, MD, followed by the reception at the Key Bridge Marriott in Arlington, VA. Their love story is so beautiful, and I truly enjoyed being apart of their journey to the aisle. Their big day was nothing short of amazing, and you can take a peek for yourself  here.


Special thanks to all of the amazing vendors, who helped make their day shine even brighter!

Fab. Glam. Thirty!

With 2015 less than 30 days away, we've been reflecting on all the amazing events and celebrations we helped plan this year! To say it has been a sensational year is truly an understatement. That being said, this month we're planning to share a few new recaps from events we assisted with this year. First up, is a posh and purple 30th Birthday we planned this Summer... The birthday girl, NaTasha, had the vision for her birthday soiree to exude fabulosity, glamour and of course 30! She loves to dance, and she's quite the fashionista, so a chic, lounge/dance party was in order. To help bring her theme to life, we incorporated her favorite color, purple, and fashion elements. One of our favorite tributes to the birthday girl was a hand painted portrait of her by The Artist Cierra Lynn. Guests were able to walk the purple carpet, enjoy delicious hors d'oeuvres prepared by Victory Chef, and dance the night away at Avery's on H St. Check out a few highlights below, to include fashion inspired cupcakes and a fun selfie station for guests to snap a few selfies throughout the night:

Pantone's 2014 Color of the Year

radiantorchidPantone, the world-renowned authority on color, has chosen Radiant Orchid as the 2014 color of the year! In Pantone's press release last month, they describe radiant orchid as “an enchanting harmony of fuchsia, purple and pink undertones, Radiant Orchid inspires confidence and emanates great joy, love and health. It is a captivating purple, one that draws you in with its beguiling charm.” It is no doubt that we will see this beautiful color popping up everywhere this year, and perhaps in some of the sensational soirees we'll plan. Today we're sharing some radiant orchid event inspiration that got our wheels turning:
