Event Planning & Design – Bright Occasions
As wedding planners ourselves, we know the value of a good one. We can’t say enough about the team at Bright Occasions! Bright Occasions is a full service wedding planning and event planning company located in Washington, DC. Since we opened in 2011, Bright Occasions has become sought after for our client centered approach, professionalism and design aesthetic. They take pleasure in planning classic, colorful, timeless and beautiful weddings, special events and corporate galas. From conception to execution, they will work with you throughout the planning process to produce seamless celebrations and allow you to be a guest at your own event. See the work of Bright Occasions in this Swoon Worthy Arena Stage Wedding and this Elkridge Furnace Inn Brunch Wedding.
Photography – Deb Lindsey Photography
With a background in photojournalism from 17 years as a photo editor at The Washington Post, Deb Lindsey is quite the pro! She began shooting weddings in 2001 and left her job at The Post in 2010 to concentrate on weddings full time. Deb approaches weddings in the same way she covered news assignments. She wants to tell the whole story of the day and be as unobtrusive as she can. She looks for moments, emotion, action and details. Her ultimate goal is to create beautiful photos — clean, uncluttered images, full of love and joy and featuring natural light whenever possible. You can check out some of Deb Lindsey’s amazing work in this tropical meets urban rehearsal dinner inspiration and this spring courtyard wedding!
Floral Design – Petals & Promises
If you’re looking for stunning florals that will compliment your wedding day, look no further than Petals & Promises. Utilizing lush foliage, fruiting branches, and sumptuous blossoms, Petals and Promises gathers the finest flowers from farms around the globe. Local and seasonal flowers are resourcefully incorporated into each design. Blossoms and stems are carefully selected and then transformed into stunning arrangements, custom designed for your event. Added bonus: Lisa of Petals & Promises has an affinity for beautiful ribbon and has a collection of antique ribbons. She enjoys pairing the perfect hand dyed silk ribbon with a beautiful bespoke floral bouquet. What could be better than that!? Look at how stunning the florals are in this romantic Jane Austen wedding inspiration and this cheery and bright Virginia wedding.
Rentals – The Lighting and Sound Company
Every good wedding needs light and sound. I mean, come on, could you have an awesome dance party without killer sound?! Would your guests be able to see all of the effort you put into the design without light?! No way! The Lighting & Sound Co. is made up of designers & technicians who are incredibly passionate about quality events and forming lasting relationships with clients, and we promise your production needs will be met with nothing less than perfection. It’s their promise that we’ll always be available to answer questions, or just chat about ideas, and that they’ll arrive on time with the best equipment & crew available.
Calligraphy & Stationery – Type A Invitations
The aesthetic of your event begins with your invitation suite. It’s the first feeling your guests get for your wedding. Because of this, you want to make sure you are presenting a stunning invite. That is what Type A Invitations strives to provide you with! Based just outside of Washington, D.C., Type A Invitations has a different approach to wedding invitations. They create whatever you want, even if you don’t know what that is. That’s right, there are no books or pages that you have to flip through to hope you find “it.” They know it took long enough to lock down “the one” (you know, your fiancé). They believe that no one should have to keep swiping left when it comes to planning their dream day! We are obsessed with the work they did in this Southern charm vineyard wedding.
