Congratulations, Trish & Justin!

Trish and Justin were one of our full-planning clients this spring along with Dora & Kaisorn and Christina & Vincent. After working with this couple for over a year, I started to get attached! These guys are so full of love for each other, their families, and even their wedding vendors.

The happy couple chose the Decatur House Museum for their celebration, which turned out to be perfect for the earthy green and brown decor. This historic venue is located on the edge of Lafayette Park, slightly north of The White House. Their wedding cake came from Amphora, the dress from Kleinfeld's, the floral/lounge/lighting from DaVinci's Florist, bagpiping by Norm, the catering by Linwood's, entertainment by DJ Greyhound, and beauty by Margoux LeRoux.

Here's some photos from the Regeti's Blog to start things off:The ceremony is ready to go! We marked reserved chairs with a wide mocha-colored satin ribbon from the Offray outlet. Special thanks to Party Rental Ltd. for making sure we got these beautiful brand-new chairs. Trish's mother bought these beautiful sandalwood fans in anticipation of the June heat:Justin and I are deciding on which candles to use for the ceremony. I both two colors just in case. Green or white? We went with white:See? Being a wedding planner is not rocket just requires the special growth of four extra fingers to hold eighteen things at once.

" sure you like this guy?" I think at this point I was either fixing her veil or winding up for a right hook:Eight seconds before the first bridesmaid processed down the aisle, we noticed wet spots showing up on the brick courtyard. In order to beat the rain, I made them process a tad quicker than usual. By the time we got through their 16-member bridal party, the sprinkles were a bit too much to subject the bride's hair to. I don't think she or her dad seemed to mind the umbrella one bit: The ceremony (which the groom wrote himself!) incorporated a Polish tradition to honor Trish's grandmother:Her adorable parents look on:DaVinci's did such an amazing job with these flowers. I can't tell you beautiful and fresh they were in person!After the ceremony, The Regeti's took a bunch of portraits of the bridal party, family, and newlyweds. I loved that these two could not keep their hands off of each other:And of course a little bit of sassy kilt posing:The reception's ready to go. Trish bought these adorable little lanterns on eBay!The escort table featured a gorgeous hanging votive display and the cards sat on moss:
We made the escort cards! Paper Source carries pre-cut and pre-scored cards that are perfect for it:The first dance:You'll have to stay tuned after the rest of the photos are released! Some of their other details include an awesome lounge, a candy bar, and a suspended wreath over the ceremony. To see a couple more images (and some from their rehearsal dinner at Hillsborough Vineyards), go check out the Regeti's Blog.

As a closer, we do have fun at weddings! Rebecca and I learned that the Secret Service doesn't like their traffic cones to be run over. We also gave away boxes of candy to guests at the end of the night and discovered a circa-1972 microwave in the basement. Ryan even came over to lend a hand during the room switch. Here we are cutting a rug during the 17 seconds of down-time:
