Sam and Steve’s Merriweather Manor Fall Wedding

Sam and Steve’s Merriweather Manor Fall Wedding

A mixture of Navy, cream, and evergreen made up the story for Samantha and Steve’s fun filled fall wedding at Merriweather Manor. We were fortunate to work with an amazing group of vendors to bring the couple’s vision to life and create a party that goes down in the Roberts & Co. books as one of the best crowds we have ever had! S&S wanted to make sure that the day was filled with laughter and fun, and not overly formal which was easily accomplished with their loving dog Reese leading the processional, surprise popper place cards, yummy Georgetown Cupcake dessert bar, and irish dancing all night long!

Although it did rain for a portion of the day, the couple didn’t let a little sprinkle keep them from marrying on the patio overlooking the lush Virginia countryside. Guests moved into the manor house for cocktails followed by a plated dinner from SMC under the tent. Enjoy a peek into their beautiful day!

Classic DC Wedding at Carnegie Institution

Classic DC Wedding at Carnegie Institution

Jen and Dave were married a few years ago at the Carnegie Institution, which started our love affair with one of DC’s most iconic venues. From the amazing marble columns to fantastic staff that help produce events within the space, we have had the pleasure of running, designing, and being on site for over 10 Carnegie weddings throughout our years in DC. J&D wanted to pay homage to the city they lived and loved, so we used their color story of Berry and Slate intertwined with the DC Skyline to tell the story of their wedding decor. While ALLLLLL of our brides are beautiful, I will never forget when Jennifer walked out of the hotel. She looked like the perfection of classic glamour and her undo and makeup by Kelli Fink was simply breathtaking! Enjoy a snippet of their day and see more images on United with Love from their recent feature!

Newport Waterfront Wedding

Newport Waterfront Wedding

Sometimes we are lucky enough to be able to travel with our clients to plan their destination weddings. Hands down one of my favorite locations to plan in has been Newport Rhode Island. I fell in love with this small oceanside town full of amazing restaurants, gorgeous venues, and breath taking views. Kathy and Eric brought in 40 of their closest friends and family for an intimate destination wedding there in July 2011. She wanted a color story of vibrant orange, reds, and greens that were the perfect backdrop to a crop white tent and sparkling blue seas. Enjoy a small peek at their bright, cheery summer wedding. Their wedding has also been featured on Wedding Wire Blog and Vermont Vows!

Cherry Blossom Reception

Cherry Blossom Reception

We can’t resist sharing the follow up from yesterdays reception with Ben and Julia moving the party to our favorite DC venue, Potomac View Terrace. The views from here are stunning and Occasions Caterers always create the most amazing food and ambiance! Guests were shuttled to the venue, and arrived to sweeping views of the monuments and noshed on the Bride and Grooms favorite passed bites. Dinner was held under the tent while retrospect band kept the party going late into the night. I loved their tall floraling branches of Cherry Blossoms that fit right into the spring season, and the cute cheekiness of their grooms cake!
