As we step into the next phase of “normal”, we’ve seen a big spike in small weddings. We love how something so ordinary as a picnic table can become a work of art with gorgeous florals and dinnerware. ✨
.
Small weddings give you the luxury of having a bigger budget to make that day as unique and special as possible!

Hi there! I’m Maria 👋🏻 Wedding planner and the other half of @vida_events 👰🏻 A little about me and my family 👇🏻

I was born in Lima, Peru and moved to Los Angeles, CA with my family before I was two. My family then moved to Northern Virginia, which is where I’ve been since... except for a year in college when I moved back to LA 🌴

Family is very important to me and I travel to California and Texas (where my parents now live) frequently to spend time with them ✈️ I rather travel to visit them verse traveling to visit anywhere else.

I met my husband in first grade 📚 He even has a picture of me standing in front of the chalkboard from a day where he took a disposable camera to school. I’m wearing a soccer t-shirt (I’ve never played soccer) and a yellow skort.

A lot has happened since that day in first grade and our most recent blessing was welcoming our second baby TWO weeks ago. I may be lacking sleep and unaware of the day of the week but I am loving life as a mom of two 👶🏻👦🏻

Being a wedding planner has given me the opportunity to create beautiful moments for our clients and build relationships that have gone past the wedding day. Being a business owner has allowed me the creative space to design dream weddings while being able to raise my children. The quote “the days are long but the years are short” couldn’t be truer. ✨ Thanks for following along! @marsvida

Oh hey friends! 👋🏻 It’s been awhile since you’ve seen our faces on our feed, so we’re jump starting the weekend early with some #fridayintroductions !
.
I’m Megan, wedding planner and coffee connoisseur. I’ve never been your typical Type A wedding planner - getting sh*t done is top of my priority list, but with a relaxed mindset.
I’m originally from southern Indiana, so I’m a sucker for cowboy boots and all things farm. Luxury weddings are our jam, but give me a dirt road anthem and that Midwest gal comes out. 🌽
.
I love the organizational aspect of weddings and having the freedom to design. Our biggest asset as a duo is owning any issues that come up and dealing with them. Problem solving is life 🙌🏻
.
You can find me in my spare time hanging with our critters (swipe for cuteness), sipping over at @wheatlandspring and @walshfamilywine or attempting to inline skate. (Because what 30 year old doesn’t take this up as a new hobby?)
Happy weekend, friends! @ Leesburg, Virginia

"The event industry has taken a major hit due to Covid-19, but so have our future brides and grooms. Our couples are having to postpone or cancel their weddings, and as a small business we are taking a huge hit during this time. Our hearts go out to any couple having to postpone. This is something none of us ever expected happen.
Vida Events helps engaged couples get organized, navigate budgets and communicate with vendors (crucial in this time), so that they can feel confident in and truly enjoy this monumental season of their lives. We provide unforgettable wedding planning design and coordination services whether it's a small elopement or a rescheduled wedding next Spring. We are here for you, and as we lean on each other during this time, we are so grateful for such an amazing community of fellow small business owners."

Two of our favorites celebrated their first anniversary yesterday, and it got us thinking how lucky we really are.
.
Lucky to celebrate with each other, even if it is from a distance.
Lucky to welcome new life into the world.
Lucky to cheer on our friends and family, even if it is just washing their hair that day.
...and so so so lucky to be married to the one we love, even if that day looks a little different than planned.
.
So even in the darkest of times we encourage you to find joy, to find the helpers and to not be too hard on yourself ✨

We love our little bees 🐝 Bee's Wing Farm

This morning I got the exciting news that we will in fact have an early summer wedding! We will have to revise things a bit for a 50 person guest list rather than 200 but they along with the help of @vida_events are being so creative to still be able to have their dream wedding.

We are excited to still be part of Jillian and Tanner’s big day and make lots of pretty florals for them.

We are SO excited to announce we’re bringing this cutie on as a summer intern. 🙌🏻 Shes fun, outgoing and loves Disney, what more could we ask for?! We can’t wait for her to meet everyone and show her the wonderful world that is weddings! ❤️ Meet, Cydney! 👇🏻

Hi everyone! My name is Cydney Washington and I am a summer graduate at George Mason University. I am so excited to come along and work with Vida Events as an intern this summer. I have always loved event planning and working with other people. Fun fact: I planned a wedding in my basement for two of my classmates when I was in first grade - so you could say I always knew I would be doing this. If I'm not spending time with my friends and family at home, I'm usually spending time with my friends and family at Disney World. I completed a Disney College Program in fall 2017, and I am always down to talk Disney. I cannot wait to get to know everyone and get started in this amazing industry! @ Loudoun County, Virginia

First moments as Mr & Mrs 💫 If you can fit it in the timeline, try taking a couple of minutes together and apart from guests after the ceremony. It will allow you to have a special moment with your new SPOUSE! ⭐️ Plus helps your planner get your guests over to cocktail hour and your wedding party ready for pictures. It’s a win, win! 📸 picture by @bakerture at @tranquilityfarmweddings
