Real Wedding Wednesday: Mallory & Matt

Personalization is a huge trend in the wedding world! Mallory & Matt pulled this off flawlessly by incorporating adorable details about themselves as a couple in to their wedding day. They welcomed guests to their West Virginia wedding with goody bags filled with local snacks. They also said “cheers” with a signature drink: the moscow mule. We love these ideas and wish this sweet couple all the best! Thank you to Lisa Blume Photography for capturing the big day!

Real Wedding Wednesday: Caitlin & Greg

The day Caitlin and Greg’s wedding invitations arrived at The Dandelion Patch was a big day! We’re talking rose gold foil and hydrangea envelope liners. We fell in love!

The next best thing to receiving this pretty paper was viewing Lindsay Fauver’s beautiful photos from Caitlin and Greg’s Georgetown wedding! This classic wedding included simple, white bouquets and family photos on every table. Our favorite shots of the couple feature romantic glances in front of the Lincoln Memorial where Greg actually proposed to Caitlin. How sweet!
