I am so excited for my friend Juli, the editor of United With Love. She is partnering with the Mandarin Oriental in Washington to give away a mini-moon!! This includes a two night’s stay in a deluxe room, two luxurious spa treatments, and dinner for two in the deliciously fantastic Sou’wester. I am so very excited for this, I have personally entered as much as possible. You should too! Details can be found here!
Last week I had the pleasure of previewing the 2013 couture cake collection by the designers at Charm City Cakes. And wow, was I blown away. Some of these designs are so beyond what I have ever seen before in wedding cakes, that I already cannot wait for the 2014 collection! But in the mean time, I am going to continue to be completely obsessed with these ones below. These are just my personal favorites of the collection, you can see the whole bunch here.
Much love to all the sponsors of the fabulous launch party:
Invitations by Trial By Cupcakes
Cuisine by Copper Kitchen
Florals by Crimson and Clover

To help you with your backyard wedding, I have put together this planning timeline, to accompany my ebook, The Elegant At-Home Wedding.Its important to stay on track, but also not get overwhelmed with all the things that need to be done for the wedding. Keep in mind that this is based on the DC wedding market, and your market might be slightly different with regards to how quickly vendors book up.
