A special cake from the bakery where she works.  Her dad’s wedding band lovingly attached to her bouquet, so that he would be with her as she walked down the aisle.  Hand painted wedding shoes… every detail of Lacey and Neil’s elopement was created with love, and came together to create the most wonderful day!  […]

I love seeing the special items couples bring with them on their wedding day!  When each couple arrives we help them unpack their carefully wrapped treasures, pulled from boxes, bags and suitcases.  So when we unpacked Funko Pops of Meghan Markle and Prince Harry …I just knew it was going to be a fun day!  […]

Barbara and Jed’s beautiful elopement was everything a wedding should be…elegant, gorgeous, simple, full of love and just perfect for them!  Barbara and Jed were one of the most easygoing couples we worked with this year.  We planned their whole wedding in about 3 emails I think!  We hosted a lovely private ceremony, and our […]

Once in a blue moon, the world gets me down, and then into my life come the most wonderful, sweet, thoughtful, funny, madly-in-love people and it’s like the clouds have parted and the sun is shining again.  Happiness is contagious, and I sure got a good dose of it from our lovely bride Stephanie, her […]

“We’re both a little introverted, and we’re each others Best Friend, so we couldn’t be happier staying home and just being together” Toshionna shared with me as we wound our way up the mountain pass and disappeared into the beautiful depths of Shenandoah National Park.  A perfect pair indeed – Toshionna and Michael were so […]

The winds were blowing and the rain was falling as Hurricane Florence made her way past, but we didn’t mind.  We were warm and cozy inside, watching the pretty pattern of raindrops on the windowpanes.  Laughter and excitement seemed to fill the building with that special energy that only comes on wedding days!  Nadja and […]
