Our latest beautiful bride, also one of the City Celebrations family, Nadine. It was a perfect night for a winter wedding with the first snowfall of the season, which fit with our winter wonderland theme. There was an ice bar from Ice Lab and custom dance floor to match the invitations from Revolution Event Design and Production.

"The frankest and freest and privatest product of the human mind and heart is a love letter..."
-Mark Twain

Let's be honest, love letters make us all a bit swoon-y! Even if they aren't aren't our thing. 🖤
@fiveoneltd can pen love letters for me any day!

Full disclosure: I (Bridgitte) loved creating this bouquet because we could really go crazy and play with it BUT I played with this guy for hmm...2 hours?! All the while, Edy is plugging away at the REST of the flowers for this shoot. Just tirelessly working her bum off and I finally finish, come back in the room from putting it in the cooler and say "I think I'm just going to adjust a few things on the bouquet, it doesn't look exactly right." As soon as I said it, she looked up at me with have-you-lost-your-mind-eyes and said "How bout you start on other things and go back to it later?!" (through mildly clenched teeth) Bahahaha. Note to self: move to the next thing and NEVER mention that bouquet obsession to the person working much harder. HA.
Speaking of obsessed: How about that Honey Silks & Co ribbon?? I love the color!!

Jingwei and Thomas really wanted to tie her Chinese culture into their Virginia wedding in a way that didn't feel kitschy. We love a challenge and definitely one that involves beautiful linens from @nuagedesignsinc and chinoiserie vases! We brought the decor & flowers and Jingwei & Thomas brought the L-o-v-e!! #overlookfarm #overlookfarmvirginia

Up close and personal with our large scale moss and floral installation! We love the drama this lends to an event--even without flowers (and we are happy to rent it just.like.that. and then stand back while your guests spend all night posing in front of or under it). It was pretty spectacular on this particular day, though! Combo roses for the win!

Even I sometimes forget that we have a whole collection of event rentals available. Vintage and modern...to be honest with you, it is a collection of items that struck us. Are we supposed to tell you we spent SO much time ensuring that our offerings are cohesive? Of course we are. But we didn't. We purchased rental items that moved us for WHATEVER reason. If you're interested, you can find photos on our website under "the collection."

Sarah & Mike wanted to have a New Orleans style parade from their ceremony to reception! Despite some rain, the parade came together in its own special way! Bachelor Boys Band met this sweet couple and their friends and family outside of Clarendon Ballroom after their march from St. Charles and played them into the reception! How great are those umbrellas?!?!
