DC MAGAZINE MEN OF STYLE 2014

April 17, 2014

We had the pleasure of designing and coordinating DC Magazine’s Men of Style Event. We worked with a number of fabulous vendors including Occasions Caterers, The Tailored Man, Carnival Day, Design Foundry, Tony Brown of Imijination Photography, Events DC and Washington Talent Agency. The Carnegie Library was the perfect backdrop for our color blocked theme, separating the space into red, blue, green and purple with a fabulous and tasty menu to match. The Tailored Man featured their suits accompanied by a Bourbon, Rye and Jerky bar, a huge hit with both the fellas and the ladies! And of course.. we can’t forget our fun and interactive branding tool– the Giant Lite Brite!

OLD, NEW, BORROWED + BLUE

April 10, 2014

While there are so many details involved in planning a Wedding, one of the traditional details our Brides still love to bring in to their special day is Something Old, Something New, Something Borrowed and Something Blue. While there are so many different ways to do this… subtle and bold, personal and fun, we wanted to give a nod to where this tradition came from and ways to incorporate it on your big day.

Each item in this saying represents good luck for the bride on her Wedding day and it is said that if she carries all of these things, her marriage will be happy.

Something Old: Continuity with the Bride’s family {A family brooch, garter, or heirloom, old family photos displayed at the wedding}

Something New: Hope for the future and joining a new family {dress, shoes, new initials monogrammed into a necklace or your dress, key of your new home}

Something Borrowed: An item from a happily married friend or family member {jewelry, veil}

Something Blue: Symbolizing faithfulness, loyalty and love {shoes, garter, flowers}

…And every once we have a Bride looking to include “and a silver sixpence in her shoe”¬†which in the ancient saying stands for wealth and financial security.

Hint: If you are looking for a modern twist on this tradition, try creating a cocktail menu with drinks relating to each category: old {gin + tonic}, new {your personal favorite}, borrowed {a friends favorite} and blue {touch of blueberries}!
