Jen & Jeff's Strathmore Wedding- 8/28/10

I had the pleasure of working with Jen & Jeff at their wedding at Strathmore Mansion in Bethesda on August 28th. It was a warm weekend, but the weather turned out to be really nice at sunset when they had their outdoor ceremony on the back lawn.

Jen & Jeff are both huge Knicks fans and used that as their inspiration for the wedding decor. Blue and orange touches included the blue bridesmaid dresses and linens, orange flowers, and blue and orange chopsticks for the favors. Another fun feature were the escort cards, which were printed to look like basketball tickets, which guided guests to their seats.

The couple had an amazing group of family and friends to support them on their day. After the love-filled toasts and the laughs and tears during the slideshow, their guests kept the dancefloor packed until they literally had to leave. Thanks so much for having me as part of your day, Jen & Jeff!

Special thanks to Roman Grinev Photography for the beautiful photos.

Etsy Love: Sunshine & Ravioli

I, like many of you, am obsessed with Etsy! I was just placing an order for a client of mine (some really cute table numbers and signs for their reception in November) and decided to peruse the site to see what other goodies I could find.

How excited was I to stumble upon Sunshine & Ravioli! They have a lot of different vintage inspired items, from Save-the-Dates, favors, raffle tickets, invitations, bookmarks and much, much more! So many would be excellent for a Fall wedding! Check out some of my favs:

I love these cones for favors or for serving a treat at the reception!

Love these save the dates!

Thank you gift/favor tags

Fairytale theme anyone?

Definitely check out the Sunshine & Ravioli site to see if they have anything that might work for you! They love custom work, so don't be shy to ask!
