Wedding Registries. Supposedly millennials are killing them but they aren’t dead yet. Maybe you’re on the fence about making a registry and you really just want to ask for contributions to your honeymoon fund, and I can’t blame you!

Each year D.C. welcomes spring with the blossoming of 3000+ cherry trees around the Tidal Basin and subsequently welcomes the 1.5 million tourists that flood the Basin (pun intended) to soak in the glory of the blooms.

Now, this is just my own opinion but I firmly believe that one of the hardest parts of wedding planning is choosing a team of vendors who you can 100% depend on. The last thing you want to worry about on your wedding day is the catering or the flowers or your videographers, so it’s […]

One of my favorite bloggers to follow is Mackenzie Horan and her blog Design Darling. In fact, I am sure that since starting to religiously follow her blog the amount of navy blue striped clothing I own has doubled (I already had too much to start if you ask Daniel). One of my favorite things […]
