When Southwest boho meets modern romantic 😍
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
For this bride living in Arizona, Yasaman wanted a very natural and organic feel to the day while incorporating lots of neutral shades of brown, sand, taupe with muted tones of mauve and blush. She wanted to mix modern with vintage and evoke a sense of romantic bohemian luxury balanced with fun and excitement.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
We created a mood board that would more easily communicate to vendors the overall aesthetic for the day. By using a mix of visual images paired with text to share their story as a couple and the desired look for the day, we helped make sure vendors were all on the same page about what they would create for the wedding day.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
In the end, Yasaman & Vinny's wedding was a true blending of their Persian and Arab cultures, and showcased their personalities in such a warm and inviting space!
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Double tap if you're in love with her bouquet as much as we are! ♥️

Introduction time! 🙋🏽‍♀️
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
If you're new to following along, hello! 👋🏼
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I'm Christina -- a Loudoun native, mom of two toddlers, Jayden and Miles, wife to my college sweetheart and amazing husband, Justin and leader of our team here at Happily Hitched!
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Lover of the simple things in life:
✨ Sunshine that floods the room as morning breaks
✨ Warm summer afternoons
✨ Burning candles every chance I can get
✨ Making up silly dances with my boys and enjoying every little giggle that erupts as a result
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I believe in serving others well and being kind and genuine in my interactions.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
It's my goal to be that happy face that greets you and your loved ones on such a special day as your wedding. We all deal with so much in the world on a daily basis, a simple smile and laughter can do us all a lot of good.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I'm grateful for every couple we have the honor of working with. Thank you for allowing me and our team to do what we love!
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
If we haven't already connected, would you mind sharing one thing about yourself in the comments below? I'd love to get to know you!

Happy one year to Carrie & Trevor! ​​​​​​​​
​​​​​​​​
This dream wedding at last year has such a special place in my heart. It's not every day you get to help your lifelong friend get married (seriously, our moms worked together and were pregnant at the same time, so basically friends since before birth haha).​​​​​​​​
​​​​​​​​
There was so much joy and happiness that filled the venue that day! Check out the last photo for reactions from their moms when they finally said "I Do!"​​​​​​​​
​​​​​​​​
Wishing so many blessings for you both as you enter your second year and beyond! Love you!!​​​​​​​​

What an incredible weekend we had for Kelsey & Steven at Tranquility Farm! ​​​​​​​​
​​​​​​​​
If we had to choose just one photo of how it feels whenever we finally see our couples get married and realize all the hard work and planning that has come to life, this photo would just about sum it up -- cheering you on and celebrating your marriage, all in a well-coordinated fashion, of course! ​​​​​​​​

These farm tables have been such a labor of love! ♥️
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
We began building farm tables as a family to share our love of wood-working and our desire to create a gathering place for loved ones to celebrate.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Guests will spend a good amount of time at the tables you set for your wedding day. They'll dine together, smile and laugh, and share stories with each other. Your tables will set the tone for the feeling and atmosphere you want to create.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
We've thought of all of this, and kept it in mind as we've meticulously built each table by hand, and with so much love.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Now with 25 tables and a sweetheart as part of our inventory, we hope every single guest that sits at these tables can feel the joy we've experienced as we've worked to provide our farm table rentals as a special meeting place for your wedding day. It's been such a privilege to build them for you!
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
If you've been looking for farm table rentals, send us a DM to learn more!

Nothing could be more interesting than this on a Friday night...rental contracts! 😆​​​​​​​​
​​​​​​​​
Ok, we joke! But if you're engaged and looking to rent wedding decor from local vendors, we've got just one thing to say -- PLEASE, read your contracts before signing!​​​​​​​​
​​​​​​​​
In this week's blog post we share all the things to be aware of before submitting payment and locking in your rentals. ​​​​​​​​
​​​​​​​​
A detail you shouldn't overlook is what the contract says about weather! Many weddings in northern Virginia and Washington, D.C. have at least part of the wedding taking place outside, whether it's your ceremony or cocktail hour.​​​​​​​​
​​​​​​​​
If you're planning to rent any items, like a lounge set or other specialty, one-of-a-kind decor, your rental vendor will take their weather policy very seriously in order to preserve the quality of their rentals for future couples. No vendor wants to return to a venue to pick up wet lounge furniture (that may become ruined), and it's a quick way to be hit with hefty replacement fees.​​​​​​​​
​​​​​​​​
If you haven't thought through what you'd do in case of bad weather, create a plan! This is what we specialize in as your wedding planning team, helping to think through the what-if scenarios to make sure we can still use all your rental items -- indoors or out.​​​​​​​​
​​​​​​​​
Read our latest blog post for two more key details to pay attention to when signing rental contracts.​​​​​​​​

A legacy gift is a special gift you give to your wedding VIPs that they can then pass down for generations as a family keepsake. It brings a special layer to your wedding day and a way for you to sew into the lives of those who will be there for you on your wedding day.

Today on our blog we are discussing rehearsal dinners!
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Rehearsal dinners have become full-blown events in recent years. Many times the rehearsal dinner includes more than just the bridal party (queue in the Welcome Party!). Traditionally, the rehearsal dinner is a private dinner for the couple’s VIP wedding guests.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Head to the link in our bio for tips on how to easily plan a rehearsal dinner!

One of my favorite parts of Mary-Kate and Jimmy’s wedding is how they incorporated their shared passion for wine. Throughout their relationship wineries and vineyards have often been tied to sentimental moments for them, so it was only fitting that it was included in their wedding. At the reception, they skipped traditional floral arrangements and instead had wine bottle centerpieces. Each bottle was from a different vineyard that they loved, worked at, or shared special memories from along with its individual story!

In case you missed it you can see the highlights from their wedding up on the blog now!

Mary-Kate and Jimmy had the most beautiful autumn wedding day at Sweeney Barn! They spent lots of time carefully planning their wedding and when it came around were so laidback and relaxed as the moments unfolded. Mary-Kate told me that their biggest focus was just making sure they got to spend quality time with all the people they loved and release the stress from all of 2020’s events.
