A little snippet into the year we shared in 2018...it sure was a good one! As we are evaluating our goals and looking ahead into 2019, one main goal is to share more of what we are doing, who we are, and the wonderful clients and vendors we have the pleasure of working with. Cheers to a beautiful year ahead! 🥂 #kceweddings #bestnine #bestnine2018

Hanging cake anyone? We loved working with @fluffythoughtscakes on this Art Deco-inspired NYE wedding cake. We wanted the cake to feel grand, but when you are in a huge space like the Ronald Reagan Building, it can be hard to scale accordingly. We teamed up with @reveventpro to hang this 7’ beauty of a cake from a suspended upside chandelier. That sure did make a statement!

We hope you all had an amazing holiday with family and friends! We have been enjoying every minute of cheer with our families, but now we are getting back to work in preparation for our #nyewedding this year @salamanderresort and @hayadamshotel!

Lush and all lined up! We loved working with this FUN couple to create a bright and beautiful celebration of their love. I’ll share more of the fun stuff later but today I’m focusing on this King’s table which just makes me smile! @helenoliviaflowers was spot on with helping us bring the color!

Thank you!!! Because of your support, we hit our goal in our Holiday Helpings campaign for @breadforthecity! Thank you for every comment, every donation, and all the words of encouragement! Because of you all, 48 families will have a meal this holiday. I just can’t say how much this means to me!!!

♥️♥️

If you are still considering doing something this #givingtuesday, please consider @breadforthecity. Today only there is donor matching going on! Anything you can give gets doubled. If that’s $5, it becomes $10. If it’s a meal for $32, you just have 2 meals. Today is the day!

We will resume our normal pretty programming after today...but a great reminder of our blessings, our opportunities to give, and the spirit of the season. Thank you all so much- from the bottom of our hearts!

Bread for the City

A few times since we have started working to collect funds for Bread for the City, people have asked me how we got involved or why BFTC. My why is this man right here- Paul R. Taskier. For 22 years, he has been involved with this amazing organization and serves as it's Chairman.

I have had the pleasure to plan not one, but two of Paul & Claudia's daughters weddings over the last few years and to say that their family is special is an vast understatement. Each one of them, while very dynamic and different, can light up a room and make you feel like you're a part of their family. Paul's dedication to the mission and advocacy on behalf of BFTC lead me to learn more, and in turn, is why we are working to help families have a better holiday this year.

Please read below in Paul's words about the power of $32 and if you feel so lead, please donate via our link below:
https://holiday-helpings-2018.everydayhero.com/us/kce-bread-for-the-city-holiday-helpings

Thank you, Paul, for being amazing and an inspiring example!
-Kelley

For our chairman, Paul Taskier, Holiday Helpings is a special time of year. Check out the latest on the BFC blog to find out why and how you can get involved and help us reach out goal of feeing 9,000 families this holiday season.

"Because my firm had a connection already with Bread, I went to the head of the firm and told him that we should participate. He told me it was a great idea – and that I should go around the office and ask for contributions. Well, I’d never done that before, but I was on fire to make a difference for all those families who wouldn’t have a Thanksgiving if the money wasn’t raised. So I went around the office and asked people. People were delighted to be a part of this kind of campaign, and they were generous. They understood how important a real Thanksgiving was, and what a difference it made. Within a day I had raised $10,000 in individual donations! When I called Bread, that’s when they told me that the whole goal of the campaign – for the whole city – was $20,000!"

Backyard beauty of a bridal shower with the help of some amazing friendors all to celebrate a great friend. We lucked out with incredible weather on this November day and we were able to sit outside and enjoy the day.

Is anyone planning an outdoor feast for thanksgiving? Growing up in Florida, we typically would have our Thanksgiving dinners outside or on the porch. I love the changing seasons, but gotta admit, I miss all the time outside in these colder Fall and Winter months.

This shower is featured on @unitedwithlove today- go check it out! Thank you to our r awesome team of vendors:

Help KCE + Bread for the City: Holiday Helpings! make a difference

As we prepare for our own Thanksgiving celebrations, we wanted to share with you a very special non-profit, Bread for the City, based here in Washington, DC. In addition to several year-round efforts to help serve the District's low-income residents, they also do a wonderful meal program at the holidays, Holiday Helpings.

For only $32, they can feed a family of 4 (turkey and all the trimmings!) for them to enjoy in their home. This year their goal is to feed 9,000 families and we are partnering with them to help.

If you feel so led, please click on our link below to donate a meal (or two or three!) Another (SUPER EASY) way to contribute is to comment on our Facebook or Instagram posts. Any comment = $1 contribution from KCE through Thursday.

Thank you and Happy Thanksgiving!

How much do we love gold foil, we us count the ways! Teaming with @saima_says_design on S+C’s wedding invitations and day-of paper products was a dream. She knew we wanted thick, luxe, and shiny and I think I actually gasped when I opened them up for the first time. Sometimes with paper, seeing and feeling in person makes all the difference.

A Lazy Susan supplying the first course and it also acts as the decor? Sign us up! 🙌 We loved working with @susangagecaterers on this @tudor_place rehearsal dinner. Our couple wanted the relaxed and social aspect of family style paired with the elegance of a plated meal. So, @susangagecaterers whipped out the lazy Susans for delicious bites for the first course (and a great conversation starter!) and then they served the main course and dessert. It was the best of both worlds! {photo: @adambarnesphoto | catererinf and rentals: @susangagecaterers | @venue: @tudor_place | paper: @justwritestudios | tent: @sperrytentsdc | music: @classicalguitarceremonies .

After this snow day (hello, it’s mid-November!?!) who wants to crawl up on the sofa with a fuzzy blanket? 🙋🏻‍♀️ throwing it back this cigar lounge we created with @reveventpro @elizabethprinceton for A+T’s New Year’s wedding a few years back. Our groom was a huge cigar enthusiast and really wanted a cigar tent, even though it was winter, even though it the venue (@reaganitcdc) was in the middle of the city. With the help of @sugarplumtents for the structure and heat, @reveventpro for the amazing bars and lounges, @cigarrowevents for the live roller, @bellavillashop for the amazing vintage antiques, @hollychapple for the plants, the Cuban inspired food from @reaganitcdc, this lounge felt warm (and was warm!) to welcome guests into a little Havana-like escape in the city! {📷: @lisaboggsphoto}

People ask me often about what I love most about my job. Hands down, my favorite part is seeing my couple’s joy in experiencing all the things we spend the time and energy to plan on the day of their wedding. After that, I would say that I love seeing projects come to life. It’s so rewarding to go from a concept to reality. This escort card design from MJ+B’s wedding is an example. This photo is the finished product, but scroll left to see my initial sketch (no judgement- I need to take more of @verymaryinspired classes! 😉), but at least it’s a starting point! From there, we turned it over to the amazing @emilybairddesign and she ran with it. It takes a lot of planning when you ombré and alphabetize and she was on every detail helping us out! Looking forward to seeing the pro photos from @paulabphoto! {wall: @smthingvintage, floral: @helenoliviaflowers, paper @emilybairddesign, banner: @kimberlygeorgeart, venue: @rvrfarm) @ River Farm

A little snippet of the pretty place settings from MJ+B’s wedding this past weekend at @rvrfarm. We’re loving the rich tones and textures, from the wood charger, mixed with the copper flatware and chairs, mixed with a velvet linen. To top it off, @helenoliviaflowers slayed the florals for this one!

How sweet are these flower girls? We had a lot of circular elements going for this wedding, so we gave the girls floral crowns as well as wooden hoops adorned with blooms, instead of a traditional flower basket. Such a cute look and they rocked it! {Floral: @sweetrootvillage, photo: @paulabphoto}

All the Fall feels. I think that I’m officially ready for Fall and love looking back on this stunning couple we helped last September and this stellar floral arch by @sweetrootvillage!

Don’t you love a palette that could translate to any season? This pretty place setting was from our client’s May wedding (hello my favorites- #coralcharm), but I feel like it could work any time if the year, especially Fall with the burgundy tones. {Floral: @hollychapple, plates: @smthingvintage, linen and tabletop: @selecteventgroup, caterer: @spilledmilkdc, menu: @emilybairddesign, photo: @jodiandkurtphoto}

Grab a seat! We love the warmth and homey-ness (Is that a word?!) that a great lounge grouping can bring to a wedding. For K+J’s @woodlawnandpopeleighey wedding, we staged this lovely grouping from @reveventpro and dressed it up with a few blooms from @sweetrootvillage. This lounge was set right outside of the tent, so it offered those guests who wanted some fresh air or to get away from the music a place to retreat. 📷: @lisablumephoto
