An Intimate Winter Wedding in Arlington, VA

I love when a client has everything for the wedding close by. Our client’s church and wedding reception venue were 2 blocks from each other; and both of those were only 3 block from their home. Most of our major event partners were in Arlington, Virginia or very close by. All photos by Cynthia Sambro-Rier.

A Classic Late Fall Wedding at Washington Golf & Country Club

There is something refreshing about a classic, timelessly styled wedding. Nothing complicated, never becomes outdated, always beautiful. Our client was a stunning bride, with a very modern personal style. With the stately Washington Golf and Country Club as her backdrop, she chose rich burgundy and ivory as her color palette. Enjoy these photos from Maria Vicencio. — Vicky

Why not have your wedding at your favorite restaurant? They did. (Part 1)

I just love it when a couple knows what they are about and chose to plan a wedding that made sense to them and not worry about what everybody else is doing. Sitting at their favorite neighborhood restaurant one night, this couple thought, “wouldn’t it be fun to have our wedding here?” They did! We had a two-part cocktail hour, charcuterie platters as centerpieces, and details filled with sentimental value. Here’s to “doing your own thing!” — More to come. Enjoy, Vicky

“Dear Vicky, I just wanted to take a moment to thank you all for everything you did for our wedding. We feel like everything went perfectly and we wouldn’t change a thing if we had it all to do over again. Our guests raved about the food and the decor. Everyone loved the ceremony. We (and our parents) felt completely taken care of by Vicky and Stacey. The day was truly more wonderful than we imagined it could be. With many thanks, S&H”
