A Classic November Wedding-- in Every Sense of the Word!

What a joy it was to work with this family to help execute a wonderfully planned day! Our day of services allow the client unlimited phone and e-mail consultations throughout the planning process and intimate 1 on 1 planning two months before and leading up to the wedding day. A BIG shout out to our Mother of the Bride, Cathy, who worked tirelessly with Wedding Savvy & her fantastic vendors to pull off a perfect wedding day! Enjoy this slideshow showcasing the ceremony at St. Mary's Church under the calm presence of Church Coordinator Louise Baradel. The reception followed at the Sherwood Forest Clubhouse. Flowers were provided by Romance of Flowers. The flowers really popped with the amazing and affordable lighting by Event Dynamics. We can't forget one of the best wedding meals ever, provided by the one and only Ken's Creative Kitchen. Ladies, if you need a them!! And I've saved the best for last...the event was captured by none other then Jen of Egomedia Photography. She did a fantastic job of capturing these perfect images. You can see why Washingtonian Magazine named them "Ones to Watch" in 2010 ...look at these images, they are definitely worth watching!!

The Perfect November Wedding

I had the pleasure of working with a fantastic couple to plan their November 6th wedding. It was held at their private waterfront community clubhouse -- an old barn style building. We hung a custom, antique chandiler as the centerpiece of our event, had a perfect November menu with Braised Short Ribs, and closed the deal with a fantastic band that kept everyone rockin' all night long! As always, this event could not be possible without all our fantastic vendors: Amy Deputy Photography, Ken's Creative Kitchen, Event Dynamics, Silver Stems Floral Design, Party Rentals, LTD., One of the best bands out there, The Dickens, Cakes from Palate Pleasers, and The Paper Trousseau. You all MADE the event. Thank you!

Thanks to Kristen and Mark for being a fantastic couple from start to finish -- all my best to you!
