Iron Gate: We are over the moon!

Happy Wednesday, we are to thrilled that we get to feature Dana and Phil’s wedding today! Their custom laser cut to match the Iron Gate was by far one of our favorite projects! She said she’d never date a coworker and he said he wouldn’t fall for an American girl, and boy are we glad they were both wrong. We are also so thankful that the amazing Bonnie Sen was there to capture the whole thing! Check out the wedding below!

Friday Funday: District of Columbia themed!

Happy Friday everyone! We hope that you all had a great week and are excited for the weekend! As I travel back to the nations capital, all I am thinking about is everything D.C! So many people do themes for their wedding but the D.C. theme is always the most used one.  It can be done so tastefully and transform your wedding into a classic.

Give your guest a Washington themed welcome bag! That way they have all of your favorite places!

Trend Alert: All about florals!

We are dreaming of warmer weather and thinking ahead to spring and all the upcoming weddings we have!  Today we are featuring florals, because, they are such a big part of someones wedding.  The floral trend is always changing and becoming more and more spectacular!  We love seeing how creative planners and brides can get!

Hanging florals should never go out of style! If your wedding is inside and you want an outdoor feel this is the perfect way to incorporate both!

Floral hoops are also a new trend, they can add depth to your reception and also are a great accent piece behind the bride and grooms table!

Geometric floral holders are very popular, especially in the copper color! Adding another element to the plating is always fun too!
