D.C. residents Kathleen and Matt wanted their engagement photos to be as timeless and romantic as their upcoming wedding day, so we kept the vibe super classic for their portraits at the D.C. War Memorial—a scaled down version of the Jefferson Memorial without the crowds! We let the setting take center stage, bringing in a few subtle accents like a simply styled Save the Date, a gorgeous bouquet that fit perfectly with the blush, grey and dusty blue color palette, and, of course, a little rosé bubbly! Everything flowed as beautifully as Kathleen’s drapey Morning Lavender skirt, and the captures by Elizabeth Fogarty were nothing short of dreamy! See more from this feature over on Style Me Pretty!
Being based on Maryland’s Eastern Shore, we’re constantly finding new ways to reinvent “nautical.” For our spring studio tablescape, we wanted to add a little bit of a modern twist to the classic navy and white color palette, bringing in square plates from Eastern Shore Tents & Events, geometric place card holders from Esselle and a fun patterned napkin from La Tavola Fine Linen. We think it’s the perfect mix of classic and modern, all gorgeously captured by Lauren R. Swann! See more over on Fashionable Hostess!
Thanksgiving is all about the table—the food, the company and, of course, the place settings! This year, we’re providing some gorgeous inspiration for your Thanksgiving table—as seen on Style Me Pretty Living—complete with marbled enamel plates, stunning hand-lettered leather place cards, and free-flowing florals in soft sunset tones. We contrasted warm fall shades of amber and copper with our signature white and grey hues to create a fresh take on fall that perfectly fits our clean and crisp style. Little entertaining vignettes help complete the look, including a stunning escort card board flanked by a jaw-dropping floral urn, and a seasonally styled bar cart featuring a muted gold sequin cake and lots of fall cocktail essentials! Cheers to a fabulous holiday season!
