This is one of our many structures that we have made in-house. We custom design every wedding ceremony structure we own to be able to work within your color palette, culture and style and to be durable and sustainable at the same time. Each year we inspect our structures for damage, wear and tear and always focus on repair before entirely replacing. If it means stripping, sanding and re-staining 👉🏽 so be it! All of our structures are made with either FSC certified or reclaimed wood! Our company, formed in 1998, has always had a sustainability focus. We have never done it for popularity reasons…we do it because we actually care. Our compost area might not be the most loveliest of things to look at but it beats throwing all that good green stuff into trash bags! Does your designer have a zero waste mentality? We strive for it!

What can we sustainably build and design for you?

Did you know we have hundreds of lanterns? We have them in all shapes and sizes. We got a new shipment in this week and will most likely get another one in two weeks. We are constantly adding new inventory to have as much variety as possible! Lanterns are always a classic way to add romance to weddings! How many do you want on your big day?

03/08/2022

Going to go out of the norm on my grid today and celebrate International Women’s Day for an abundance of reasons. I couldn’t put everyone in this grid but I have a ton of women in my life that I am grateful for including my clients and their moms, bridesmaids, family, friends, colleagues and beyond!! Please know I am grateful for each moment that each woman I have crossed paths with over the past year. For sure you have opened my mind and let me see things differently. Today is a day of reflection and all I can think about is how certain women have affected me greatly and how horrible the conditions are for refugee women at the moment. Not just the women of Ukraine. My heart is bleeding for Ukrainian women, Women who have fled or are still trying to escape Afghanistan, Syria, Honduras, Democratic Republic of Congo, Palestine, Myanmar, Sudan, Iraq, El Salvador, Somalia, Eritrea and so many more. Please understand that many women here in this country are still burdened with the sacrifices of time, money and mental health due to the pandemic and struggling with the gender pay gap. All of us as women are survivors and I am here to tell you…we will need to keep all our strength for our sisters and welcome them with open arms and send money when we can and yes, pray! Prayer does not mean do nothing. Prayer means different things to do different people. Meditate on how you can give back to women in your own community. Even if it is just to lend your ear or the kindness of donating your clothing that you haven’t worn in years. I will be doing an auction soon to help raise funds for our sisters in the Ukraine in collaboration with @merpy_boho hopefully within the next week or so! Stay tuned and be ready to buy and give generously if you can or share the news! A shout out to all these women in this particular “little” collage of mighty women (of all ages). You know I am cheering you on greatly and I’m pretty sure that @ryguy123123123 / @___dwreck , @barzsoapco and @plantsalive (the men pictured here) are doing the same!

🙌🏾🤟🏽🙏🏽🤝🤜🏽🤛🏿✌🏾✊🏿💪🏾👏🏻🤎🤍🖤❤️‍🩹💜💚

💜♻️❤️Reuse❤️♻️💜

Check out the last post (or swipe left) to see how we reused this structure from a gorgeous ceremony at @meridianhouse 🙌🏽🙌🏽🙌🏽

We reused everything from the ceremony by:

💜Rearranging the florals

❤️Adding shelves to the structure

💚Adding lanterns to accent the structure

💙Adding votives to accent the desserts provided by @welldunncatering

A huge shout out to mi amor Miguel for making this become reality. I don’t say this enough 📣👉🏽💙my husband is the reason for the season (wedding season) ya’ll. Love 🙌🏽my🔥man💯!!! All of our structures are custom designed and constructed by Miguel with fsc-certified or reclaimed wood from other projects in-house. He is not on social media at all but is always behind the scenes making things happen! Give a shout out to him below!☺️💞

Can we just say that @meridianhouse is just about everything lovely!?🙌🏽💯💚

I loved using our customizable hexagon (which turned into something else after the ceremony…stay tuned for the next post!) for this gorgeous and sumptuous fall ceremony design!

@thelinehotel in DC is another fave spot. There are only a few select hotels where I like to work as many DC hotel loading docks are 🤮🤮🤮! They keep their loading docks clean and safe! (Totally a vendor BTS thing but absolutely one thing I consider when it comes to setup and breakdown fees 🤷🏻‍♀️). Their staff are always super helpful and kind…says a lot about management I think. When I posted my iPhone photo of this backdrop we designed alongside @plantsalive this past year, it was the number one photo of the year for my feed in terms of likes❤️! Of course, my amazing bride and groom D+C have amazing taste and are effing gorgeous to boot!☺️💚🤟🏽😍! Total DC rooftop vibes and their mezzanine level is gorgeous. If you didn’t know, the building used to be a church and they kept a lot of the infrastructure and don’t try to hide what it used to be. They reused the organ pipes to be a major ceiling chandelier installation which is super dope AF. I am an avid eco fanatic and reuse is EVERYTHING!💚✅♻️ If you want a DC proper hotel with serious wedding vibes…this is one that I love! 📸 by @jrobinson0 Planning by @eventsandrewells Floral design + lanterns rentals by us / @eleganceandsimplicityinc Plant Rentals @plantsalive Venue @thelinehotel #dcweddingvenue #dcflorist #thelinedc
Don’t wait and get jealous of all the Galentine photos that your fake ass friends post. Yes I said it. You know the ones. I have space for a group of galentines to learn how to make non-boring arrangements (eff the roses) and you can bring BYOB all while being surrounded by gorgeous plants at Plants Alive!] ! February 5 at 3pm!!! While you can bring alcohol, ain’t nobody gonna know if you have a cool non-alcoholic fancy drink in your hand! I am definitely going to be extra in bringing some goodies 🍪🍫🥑🧁🍒🍍🥥🧀🥖🍯🥕🫒🫐🫑🥭for ya to boot! We are going to partaaayyy and I’ll make sure Jeff puts some Galentine music on the Spotify speakers for ya!🙌🏽👯‍♀️👯‍♀️👯‍♀️👯‍♀️👯‍♀️👯‍♀️👯‍♀️👯‍♀️ Register over at Plants Alive!] on their eventbrite link before the class sells out! If we sell out quickly…I’ll add another class or a few more spots! #galentine #floralclass #florist
@dumbartonhouse is another venue we love! Their flexibility seems to be the number one reason so many of my couples love it! The grounds are gorgeous with several options for interesting backdrops for ceremonies. Nestled in a residential neighborhood of Georgetown, it feels like such a hidden gem! They have tables, chairs and some linens if you need them! Definitely a fave! Swipe left to see more of the outdoor spaces! Photos 1-4 @sweetcharmsphotography Photo 5 @margaretwroblewski Photo 6 by me / @eleganceandsimplicityinc / @everythingmicrowedding Photos 7-10 by @iamthesam #dcwedding #dcweddingplanner #dumbartonhouse
Next venue on the list of venues we love is @hillprincebar 💚 The outdoor space for this bar is absolutely a stunner! In fact, if I ever decided to have a little renewal vows 👉🏽 I would strongly consider this space! Plants and natural greenery everywhere with simple but gorgeous seating! We just enhanced the space with our reclaimed wood pedestals, tree stumps (cleaned up and ready for anything from the trees that naturally fall on our private property), candles and lanterns/hurricanes, moss and some help from our friends over at Plants Alive!] with some gorgeous Boston Ferns. Can’t wait to go back!💚🌱🕯 📸 by @rachelstengerphoto Planning by @dantusandcoevents Plant rentals Plants Alive!] Flowers, lanterns, pedestals, lanterns, candles by us / @eleganceandsimplicityinc / @everythingmicrowedding #dcwedding #dcflorist #rentals
Another one of our absolute favorite places to be is @woodendsanctuary ! We are the exclusive bistro light provider there as well! We love the outdoor grove for ceremonies and the venue comes with a tent! We are there every month during wedding season and sometimes every weekend depending on the month!

50 in Tulum at @gitano 💚 Hard to believe that I am in my 24th year of business while turning 50. Almost half of my life doing events and weddings with you! 🙌🏽💍🤟🏽 It’s hard for me to go on vacation because I work so hard (and like it that way). I do try to do it every year as I need it to gather some truth, peace and inspiration. However, for turning 50, I decided in the midst of the world being on fire I would celebrate the way I wanted to. What’s that way? Dining out every night with the one I love at venues in a Destination Wedding city exploring places for me and for my clients. What can I say? I can’t turn the yearning for learning and exploring off just because I am on vacay! So, if you want to follow along…I’m posting tidbits along the way on stories and possibly getting back on Tiktok while I am here (God help us all🤣)! Truly taking some down and grateful for all of you and all your texts and DM’s today!🤟🏽🙏🏽💯 #birthday #thisis50 #vacay
Continuing with our venue list… @rosehillmanor is another venue we love with it’s expansive 22 acres of private grounds and an easy to design around layout! Perfect for weddings up to 200 and they even have their own pergola there! The staff are awesome and easy to work with and the amenities are incredible…including in-house catering to boot! 📸 by @paperboysfilms Florals and design by us @eleganceandsimplicityinc #dcweddingplanner #dcflorist #rosehillmanor
Ecstatic to announce this is our 20th year being on the best wedding vendors list of Washingtonian Weddings] / Washingtonian] ! Which, of course, means I started doing weddings at the age of 5! Just kidding🤣 As you will see in my stories later this week, I will be going on vacation this week and next for my 50th bday (which is Sunday btw) 🥳! I have been running Elegance & Simplicity for 23 years and counting! Thank you to the entire team at the Washingtonian Weddings] / Washingtonian] ❤️❤️❤️! It is always a true honor to be on this list! I also want to thank all the other vendors and past clients that voted for us or sang our praises over all these years and presently. Without all of you, pretty sure I would be an accountant still (not that there is anything wrong with that)! Creatively, accounting wasn’t doing it for me even though I love accounting and I am definitely a proud nerd!🙋🏻‍♀️ ☺️ 🙌🏽🙌🏽🙌🏽😘😘😘🤟🏽🤟🏽🤟🏽 #washingtonianweddings #washingtonian #dc
We start each year on Instagram reviewing some of our favorite venues and ones where we want to be more often! Today…we are focusing on @aiaspecialevents 💙 Loved this gorgeous wedding that occurred both inside and outside with the best safety measures in place! Right above them were our bistro lights that shined brightly for dancing just outside! There is a great space right above them as well where tables can be placed for your reception and the lobby level atrium space can also be used for the reception with flip from ceremony to reception while “cocktailing”outside!😉 Super easy space and within walking distance of the mall and perfect for portraits! 📸 by @romangrinevphotography Planning, Design, Pipe and Drape, Lighting, Flowers and rentals by us / @eleganceandsimplicityinc Catering by @maineventcatrs #dcwedding #dcweddingplanner #weddingvenue

One of my fave bouquets of 2021! So be ready for a slew of “faves” lists coming up! At the end and beginning of every year I try to showcase my favorite bouquets and venues (and a few I would like to see more of)! So that will be coming at ya over the next month!
