Ian and Amanda's wedding will be one of the most joyful and memorable moments of their lives. It was a milestone of hopes and dreams fulfilled as well as new ones created. In its essence, their wedding was about the two of them, yet it also included highlights for their loved ones, who have been there all along the way.
.
One of the bride's favorite wedding details was guest song requests on the RSVP cards. The dance floor was constantly full and guests were so excited when their requested song came on.
.
It was a day of happiness and unity in celebration of living well, laughing often and loving always.

Making the Carnegie Institution for Science come to life for Ian and Amanda's wedding - with endless touches of elegance, prestige and effortless appeal - was both an art and a science.

Couples who laugh together, last together. With Perfect Planning Events as their team of trusted allies, Ian and Amanda experienced their wedding happy and fully present; completely free to enjoy the day, unencumbered with responsibility or worry.

The delightful couple blissfully radiated from the inside out throughout their wedding day, that they described as joyful, elegant and festive. We continue to wish them love, laughter... and happily ever after.

The exquisite design of our Royal Tea Party gravitates toward the bold, the impactful, the inspiring. Lush, lavish and luxurious, with the proper balance of textures and tones, it builds a connection between the eye and the soul.

Did you catch Meghan and Harry's rare public appearance; handing out school supplies to children in need last week? We did - and it inspired us to flashback to the Royal Tea Party we hosted to commemorate their royal wedding.
.
With all of the ceremonial grandeur usually reserved for kings and queens, this elegant motif offered an abundance of aesthetic appeal to elevate any prestigous social gathering.
.
The Tea Party was a regal affair, brimming with sovereign savoir faire! The room was abuzz with fellow event colleagues, all "queens" in their own right! Each knowing know that their crowns are not only on their heads, but also in their hearts.

Every bride has wings - all she has to do is fly! With Perfect Planning Events by their side, guiding them every step of the way, our brides never fly solo, but they surely fly free.
.
Brides, like Emerald, can enjoy the journey - because their worries wane and anxiety is alleviated. They trust that all things will align to run smoothly on their wedding day. Like birds soaring against a constant sky, each bride is carefree; with no need to consider the direction of the wind.

On her wedding day, if she asks for S.W.A.G.: She Wants A Gentleman!
.
Tolu, and his groomsmen, did not disappoint.

The way Tolu and his A-Team don their debonair attire (confident, stylish, and charming) proves clothes don't make the man; the man makes the clothes.

Our groom, Tolu, looking up, as if to say, "I know that was you God, thanks!", is one of my favorite moments. These moments, of simply existing in bliss, may be easily overlooked, but I look at this perfect moment, and instantly feel pure joy.
.
There are moments when there's a subtle shift in energy between the bride and groom on their wedding day that lends to capturing effortless, candid images, such as this one, that says, 'in love, and in life, never stop looking up.'

True love stories have no ending. Details of Tolu and Emerald's love story will forever be preserved in their stunning storybook. This bespoke keepsake captured beautiful sentiments from the couple to be shared with guests on their special day.
.
"Wow, the day has finally come! We are delighted that so many of you are in attendance today to witness and celebrate our union... Today has been specially designed to be a day full of love, laughter and life long memories. Enjoy every moment."
.
Their joyous words remind us that every day, but especially on your wedding day, every moment matters.

Surround yourself with people who make your laugh a little louder, your smile a little brighter and your life a little better. On her special day, our bride, Emerald, was surrounded by "diamonds "; each one bright, beautiful, valuable - and always in style.

Tolu likes it when his bride, Emerald, smiles. But, he LOVES it when he's the reason! There's no doubt that, on their special day, she was smiling brighter than their "LOVE" light installation.
.
Perfect Planning Events was honored to be the go-to for all things logistics, and the creative mastermind that pulled all of the magical strings together. All this beautiful couple had to do was, literally, bask in the light of their glowing love.

Going down memory lane because we are just 5 days away from TSCEO2020 @signatureceo . This was our stage backdrop the last time we met in-person. This picture is right before our black-tie gala, and I remember working out the details with Vivid Experience @vividexperienceto design the backdrop - yes those are real flowers infused into the backdrop to provide a 3-d effect. This year we're meeting virtually but I am still having an amazing backdrop with the helps of @fabeventsdc and @anielaxrose ! #wishiwasthere

07/21/2020

The Signature CEO Conference @signatureceo has joined the ranks of leading edge conferences that have glimpsed into the future to reevaluate, reimagine and restructure our approach, to help you redefine your business.

Our virtual conference is a user-first experience! We've spent countless hours making sure the content is engaging, to command the attention of our audience of hundreds of creative professionals and offer them value.

We are going to miss the in-person experience of connecting with our industry peers, and celebrating at our black-tie gala such as the one pictured here of our last conference. The florals here from BCG Events @bcgevents are stunning.

But the show must go on, so get your french press ready, pull out your laptop and enjoy our speakers/sessions from the comfort of your home (if we're being honest, even the comfort of your bed in your pajamas).

Recognizing exceptional performance. Working with corporate clients gives us the opportunity to witness the greatness within their organization(s). Recognition refers to the act of acknowledging an individual or team's behavior, performance, effort and accomplishment that supports organizational goals and values. Recognition encourages one to continue stellar performance and excel at what they do best!

Outside of the corporate space, individuals can recognize friends, spouses, their children, other family members, etc. with a simple gift of saying, "Thank You", "Congratulations", or simply saying "Well done"! When was the last time you lend a simple gesture to someone to let them know how well they are doing?
