We can’t say enough good things about Elizabeth Duncan Events! We absolutely love working with Elizabeth and her team and after featuring them in our newsletter we wanted to share one of our favorite collaborations with EDE on our blog. We worked on an inspirational shoot with them at the Phillips Collection and needless to say, the photos are stunning! Our model is wearing Mira Zwillinger.

Our October Vendor of the Month is… Abby Jiu! As we described in our newsletter we absolutely love Abby, her work, and working with her. She is an incredible photographer who we have had the pleasure of getting to know for a few years now.

One of our favorite weddings we have ever done together was the wedding of our bride Lauren and her husband Ben. They got married at the National Museum of Women in the Arts, take a look!…

Our Vendor of the Month for July is Greenworks! They are so wonderful at what they do, flowers truly become artwork in their hands. We wanted to showcase some of the fabulous work they have done over the years and also get their top five tips when is comes to planning and choosing your wedding flowers. Here’s what they had to say…

1. Do some research before you meet with the florist. Think about what you like and do not like, what style you are looking for, and bring pictures of what you see online or in magazines.
2. Ask what flowers are in season. This helps especially with cost control. Consider the color(s) you want rather than a specific flower.
3. Know your budget. Don’t forget to account for a delivery charge and tax. Typically, the cost of one plate of food should be about what you spend on your centerpiece.
4. Splurge on your bouquet if you can! It will be in your photographs and possibly preserved. Make it special.
5. Trust your floral designer and their team. They want to make your wedding beautiful!
