Real Wedding: Allison & Kevin (Part 1)

22 07 2009

Whitehall Manor weddingI really enjoyed working with Allison and her Mom, Paula. Allison is truly her mother’s daughter! They were genuinely friendly people and welcomed me into their home and lives. What a blessing it is to have a job like this and to meet wonderful people like them. This dynamic duo did a fantastic job creating the style for this wedding. You’ll see what I mean in photos.

After such a strange and wet spring, it was a bit ironic that the wedding was held on the first really hot day of the year, with temperatures soaring into the 80s.

Reception: Whitehall Manor (Doug Armstrong, Celebrations Catering) Doug is wonderful to work with and is always available for any questions. His staff did a great job during dinner service.

Photographer: Genevieve Leiper Photography. This was the first time working with Gen and she is just awesome. She was great during the planning process and was very easy going during the wedding. She and her assistant Nick seemed to have been everywhere without being obtrusive. See photos at Gen’s blog.

Floral Designer: Holly Heider Chapple Flowers. What can I say about Holly. This woman is like the energizer bunny and her floral designs has such a sunny disposition! You just can’t help but smile when you see her arrangements. Holly did a wonderful job with the yellow color scheme and put together one of the loveliest ledge displays ever! See Part 2 for photos

Baker: A Piece of Cake, Rocio Diaz. It’s been a while since I’ve had Rocio’s cake and I’ve forgotten how good it is. You really can’t go wrong with her cakes.

Transportation: Reston Limo

Music: Black Tie DJs – Tony Gaetano

Stay tuned for Part 2 for some photos!

Happy planning! Vicky
