Feminine Summer in the City

Here it is…… Feminine Summer in the City! I recently blogged about my inspiration for this theme. I think the results were a model translation of what a themed event should be. We had a great time planning this event and the host and guest seem to have a wonderful time as well.
Our evening started with guest greeted with champagne on arrival once entered into the private, urban patio of one of DC's trendiest hot spots. The space was beautifully decorated with exotic flowers, raspberry linen and private cabanas. Guests were treated to an open bar featuring signature cocktails which were inspired by the birthday girls favorite flavors and cocktails. While listening to smooth neo-soul, and R&B, guest dined on delights such as coconut chicken, mini sliders, crab cakes and smoked salmon. Our birthday girl entered her event with a smile on her face and a tear in her eye as she greeted each of her surprise party guests. Julie Eisel, one of our favorite preferred vendors (photographers) was sure to capture these moments. After a champagne toast and the "Happy Birthday" song, Red Velvet cake from preferred vendor Icing For Joy, was served. The VIP lounge was now ready and guest proceeded to end their night dancing the rest of the night away in a special VIP lounge reserved for the guest of honor. Before leaving, everyone grabbed a Cake Pop party favor and ended the night with happy birthday wishes and kisses.
Happy Birthday to Keirston and Congratulation for having a wonderful boyfriend, Mark, who planned this special day for you.

10 Years to Marriage

Congratulations to Jason Jeter and Tamara Valentin on their engagement after a 9 year courtship!

The couple met in college, thanks to a mutual friend, and have been happy together ever since. The proposal was cleverly planned by Jason, through convincing the reluctant Tammy to a weekend getaway to West Virginia for their anniversary. Convinced this will not be her "Lucky Day", Tammy originally declined the invitation but had a change of mind and decided to make the best of the weekend with her honey. The plan was Dessert! So Jason chose candy, spelling "TAMMY WILL YOU ……... ME" with Carolina Blue M&M's. Once adding the missing word "MARRY" , the couple officially became engaged, and are planning their nuptials for November 2011.
We had the pleasure of supplying one of our top makeup artists, Conceptual Beauty, for Tammy and Jason's engagement shoot. The theme was "The perfect date". The pictures are a beautiful depiction of where the couple first met, Washington, DC. We wish them happiness, unconditional love, and lots of Baby's!

Summer Inspiration

Sound simple enough! Now throw 2 weeks' notice, make it a surprise party, add about 50 guests and the theme "Feminine Summer in the City"…and you got our latest job! This event was so much fun to prepare. We were lucky to have had a host who was open to our creativity as long as the food was good, the outdoor venue was beautiful and the cake did not have Fondant (ha ha ha)!
My inspiration drew from the sunset and the birthday girls love for the color Orange and Lilly's. Check out our inspiration pictures, we will follow-up with the translation of the event very soon.

... Many More Years to Come

It was our pleasure to have handles the planning and décor for the 6 year Vow Renewal of Mr. and Mrs. Brandon Vaughn Jr. this May 2011. The couple has 3 beautiful children and live in Baltimore, Maryland.

The afternoon involved an intimate candle light ceremony, a receptions adorned with navy blue, lime green, silver and white décor and a "party hard" dance session to end the afternoon. The couple enjoyed a cupcake tower filled with their favorite cupcakes, a champagne fountain and dined on delights such as Indian chicken curry and Roast Sirloin of Beef Au Jus.
The Vaughn's chose to incorporate a few unique elements to their special day. The flower girl passed flowers to guest while proceeding down the aisle instead of the traditional floral isle for the bride. As the bride walked down the aisle, she collected roses and a best wishes hug from her bridesmaids which collectively became her bridal bouquet once at the alter. The couple chose not to do a bouquet toss, instead they gave the brides bouquet to the eldest couple present and welcomed them to a solo dance center stage. Instead of the traditional wedding favor, the couple decided to make a donation in the name of each of their guests to The American Cancer Society in honor of the bride’s father.
We were happy to supply RKristi Preferred Vendors for the evening, Glam Girls Makeup, MeShenee Photography, and 4 Ur Pleasure Beauty.We wish the happy couple the best of luck and many more years to come.
