We've got ceremony views on the brain! And what's not to love about this one?! 😍 Can you believe this was actually our Plan B? We had to make a quick decision to switch to this indoor site about 10 minutes before guests started arriving when wind gusts outside started picking up and actually started blowing chairs across the outdoor terrace πŸ˜³β€‹β€‹β€‹β€‹β€‹β€‹β€‹β€‹
​​​​​​​​
What was supposed to be a reception focal point ended up serving two purposes, and this hanging greenery design enhanced an already stunning ceremony setting. When the Bride wanted to "bring the outside in", @beeinspiredevents definitely delivered and knocked it out of the park! (Head to our Instagram stories to see how this space was transformed at night for the ultimate city lights vibe! ✨)​​​​​​​​

Today you'll find us rehearsing for tomorrow's wedding at Riverside on the Potomac. If you want to follow along this weekend, we'll be sharing behind the scenes in our Instagram stories!​​​​​​​​

Meet Shaneice & Christina! Planners in their natural habitat Always double checking the floor plan, making sure table numbers are correctly placed, place cards at the right seats, and making sure nothing is missing! ​​​​​​​​
​​​​​​​​
The name of the game is confirm, confirm, confirm! This week our team is wrapping up details for two upcoming April weddings, and you can bet there are a LOT of confirmations happening. At this point in the process when we're down to the wire, we're fine tuning timeline and floor plan details and making sure vendor logistics are all locked in. We'll be having final planning calls with our couples the week of their wedding to ensure nothing has been forgotten before family and friends start arriving into town. There's so much anticipation at this point!​​​​​​​​
​​​​​​​​
We love the work we do and love that we allow you the freedom to relax and enjoy this time without worrying about the details ​​​​​​​​
​​​​​​​​
Double tap if you envision a wedding day full of ease and without the overwhelm​​​​​​​​

In a world where your wedding can be anything, let it be uniquely and undeniably YOU ✨
β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €
Don't worry about what Pinterest tells you it should look like, or your family or your friends. Everyone will have an opinion! In the midst of listening to all the suggestions from others, are you listening to yourself about what you want?
β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €
How do you want this time to reflect your relationship? What makes your relationship special and how can you incorporate that into your day for all your guests to experience? These are the questions we'd encourage you to ask yourself as you think about the look and feel of your wedding day!
β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €
As an example, when we designed this shoot, we played off the couple's love of weekends out drinking cider. The venue was a cidery and we incorporated the apples into a Fall design that we could use to personalize some fun signage! See the photos below to see how we did a little play on words πŸ˜‰

Share in the comments below some favorite personal touches you've seen at weddings!

When it's just the two of you When thinking about preparing for your marriage, some advice I would give is to never fail to make time for the two of you. This can start during your wedding planning and even on the wedding day. ​​​​​​​​
​​​​​​​​
This time in life as an engaged couple flies by. There are so many decisions to make and to-dos to track. You're getting input from every which direction and there can be a lot of noise. But in the end, once the planning is done, the guests have gone home and the wedding is over, it's going to be just the two of you. ​​​​​​​​
​​​​​​​​
Making it a priority to create time and space for your relationship now will put in place good habits to ensure you're connecting regularly and nurturing your relationship as you begin your marriage together.​​​​​​​​
​​​​​​​​
During your wedding planning, this could look like weekly date nights or on the wedding day having some time for a private cocktail hour in your bridal suite before you go out and mingle with your guests. However you decide to "get away" make sure your planner helps create time for it in your wedding day timeline!​​​​​​​​
​​​​​​​​
How do you make time for your relationship? My husband and I have recently started doing walks everyday during lunch time and it's been a great way to check in and share things that happen throughout the day!​​​​​​​​

We've made it to Friday! Here's a little pretty to end the day 😍
β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €
I'm wrapping up the week with one final planning meeting this evening! This week was full of check-ins with our couples + a design meeting yesterday at @districtwinery. So many exciting wedding plans in the works for our couples this year -- our team can't wait to execute some amazing ideas!
β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €
But first, a little rest this weekend before we're back at it next week! What are your plans for the weekend? I've got a coordination kick off meeting with an April couple and then will be visiting with some friends and spending lots of time outside with our boys πŸ’™πŸ’™

Robby and Meghan's Airlie wedding is a BEAUTY! I loved the boho-chic details ... OH! And that glowy sunset with the sunflowers!!! And just when we thought we were going to have to work around the rain... The rain actually worked around us!
As we ran outside Saturday evening to capture the sun setting behind the trees, we ran across blossoming sunflowers in the garden! How appropriate that it’s one of Meghan’s favorite flower! 😍 I hope this sneak peek gets you excited to see more because it was a picture perfect day!! Stay tuned for more!!

Your wedding photographer takes on the huge responsibility of capturing everything happening throughout your wedding day, thus allowing you to relax knowing every special moment will be captured for you.⁠ If these types of moments (pictured) are important to you, then make sure you express that to your photographer when inquiring! ⁠ Photographer: ⁠Jessica Barrett Photography @jessicabarrettphotography (IG) Coordinators: K Layne Styled⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⁠ Venue: Mortgage Hall⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⁠ Florist: CPK Floral Designs⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⁠ Stationery: Interprintations ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⁠ Makeup Artist: @makeupbyivettb (IG)⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⁠ Hairstylist: @urjaxbeauty (IG) ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⁠ Farm table: Happily Hitched
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. To see photos from their wedding head on over to the blog now!
