Pink and Red Valentines Day Wedding Inspiration

Valentine’s Day is a day to celebrate love and romance and such a perfect time of year to get married. At Bright Occasions, we feel love and romance shouldn’t just be on Valentine’s Day (and nor should those pretty pink and red wedding details). Though we do love celebrating the holiday! I have discussed Valentine’s Day Inspiration in the past, so you may already be aware of my affinity for the lovely inspiration ideas available. We love working with clients in the DC area to dream up classic and beautiful wedding design ideas. In honor of the holiday, we have dreamt up the lovely pink and red Valentine’s Day wedding inspiration board below. We’ve incorporated a rich marsala red, blush and deep green foliage. The end result is a super dreamy and romantic look for your wedding.

Lavender and Mint DC Wedding at The Hay-Adams Hotel – Real Wedding for M&J Part 2

Earlier this week we shared highlights from the start of Margot & Joe’s Lavender and Mint DC Wedding at The Hay-Adams Hotel. We are back with more from their beautiful ceremony and reception. Margot & Joe’s wedding included a fresh color palette of cream, lavender and mint with touches of pink, deep purple and greenery. They had an intimate ceremony in the “round” with guests around a half-circle and then the space was flipped to become their stunning reception. Cream linens and chairs kept the focus on the mint chargers, lush purple flowers and sweet menu card designs. We love working with couples to plan classic weddings with pretty details in the Washington, DC region. It was wonderful to work with perfectly captured by Wedding Photojournalism by Rodney Bailey (see the full DC wedding vendor list below). Here is more from Margot & Joe’s Lavender and Mint DC Wedding at The Hay-Adams Hotel

Lavender and Mint DC Wedding at The Hay-Adams Hotel – Real Wedding for M&J Part 1

Last year we had the pleasure to work with Margot and Joe for their Lavender and Mint DC Wedding at The Hay-Adams Hotel. The Hay-Adams is one of our favorite DC wedding venues. It’s stunning event space, attentive staff and can’t beat view of The White House, Washington Monument and DC Skyline are just a few of the reasons we love The Hay-Adams. It was so much fun to work with Margot and Joe to plan and design their Washington, DC wedding. To start their wedding day, Margot and Joe got ready with their wedding party members at The Hay-Adams and chose to do photos at Lafayette Park and the surrounding neighborhood near The White House. They had a traditional Jewish wedding ceremony, followed by cocktails dinner and dancing. Everything was captured by the great team at Wedding Photojournalism by Rodney Bailey (see the full DC wedding vendor list below). Here is part 1 of their Lavender and Mint DC Wedding at The Hay-Adams HotelWe will be back later this week with more from Margot & Joe’s wedding.

Washington, DC Wedding at Carnegie Institution for Science for Renuka & Eric

We love how romantic winter weddings can be and last year we had the pleasure to work with Renuka and Eric for their Washington, DC winter wedding at Carnegie Institution for Science. One of my favorite parts about planning weddings for couples in the DC region, is getting to incorporate different cultures and family traditions. For their wedding, Renuka and Eric blended both their cultural and religous backgrounds for a wedding ceremony that was super personal. We also had Wed on Canvas (a live painter) on hand, who created the most beautiful painting and keepsake of their wedding ceremony. This winter wedding included a color palette of marsala, white, royal blue and gold. It was great to work with Egomedia Photography and all of the wedding professionals who helped make this wedding so special (see the full DC wedding vendor list below). Here are the highlights from Renuka and Eric’s Washington, DC winter wedding at Carnegie Institution for Science.

2017 Wedding Planning Trends

Every year wedding blogs and media outlets forecast their wedding trends for the year ahead. Due to the nature of planning a wedding so far in advance, many trends will stick around for a few years, while others are truly new ideas that event professionals are starting to get requests for. We ultimately love working with clients to plan their classic and stylish wedding celebrations in the Washington, DC region. We don’t necessarily feel a client needs to follow all of the wedding trends, but we like to keep on top of fresh wedding ideas to help provide suggestions to our clients to incorporate where they feel right.
