We had a great 3-day weekend (thanks to DC Emancipation Day) with a trip to Burnside Farms for some tulips, many trips to the park, everyone getting their hair cut (and colored for me), and some relaxation. I highly recommend a trip to Burnside Farms for those of you in the DMV. The tulips were gorgeous, you can pick as many as you want, and we got several bulbs, which I hope to keep and plant this winter for even more blooms. The flowers we picked are starting to open up, and I can’t stop staring at them.
But then, as I was about to run some errands today during Charlie’s nap, I go out to find our front bumper dangling from our car. This, after having just replaced the driver’s side mirror a couple weeks ago. I guess that’s city living. So now the hunt begins for a new (to us) car, since it will likely cost more to fix the bumper than our car is worth. If its not one thing, its something else.
For now, let’s just revel in this couple’s love, and this gorgeous styled shoot!
2020 hit the wedding industry hard, and it put so many engaged couples in an uncomfortable bind. Where many couples were forced to cancel or reschedule their big 2020 dream wedding, some couples took to a more creative approach and decided to have a mini-wedding or a microwedding.
Although Will and Dre have been married for years they wanted a chance to showcase their love and encourage other couples to celebrate their union regardless of how many guests are in attendance.They wanted to illustrate what it looks like to blissfully celebrate intimately. And they rocked it!
We chose a chic industrial space as the venue for the day. The flowers accentuated and lightened the space with cream and blush florals flowing throughout the ceremony and reception areas. The stationary perfectly matched the aesthetic of the day by using soft neutrals with a touch of blush.
The couple started the day at a sweetheart table made for two, and then escaped outside to a ceremony where they could share some sweet words and memories of their actual wedding day with each other. They then headed back indoors to enjoy a cozy cocktail hour by the fireplace before they cut their cake and made their toasts to each other. Wearing modern attire with a high fashion twist, these two not only looked amazing, you could tell they really felt great too! And the energy they shared throughout the day was magnetic! They wrapped up their day outside with a bottle of champagne in hand. They popped the bottle, gave each other a kiss and ran down the street to their getaway car.
