Titi & Kiyon Washington D.C. Wedding Highlights

Hi friends!

Today, we would like to share with you wedding highlights from one of our beautiful Washington D.C. weddings from 2014. We had the pleasure of planing and coordinating such a beautiful wedding. The couple also had a Yoruba Engagement Ceremony two days before the wedding. The wonderful cinematography was by G.Muse Studios.

We absolutely love both trailers from the Yoruba Engagement Ceremony and also the wedding; we hope you do too!

Dominican Republic Destination Wedding Day 3: Nikki & Malik

Day 3 was the most relaxing day of the days.  The pre-wedding party and the wedding were over so the couple and guests went out on a catamaran sail.  This is actually the best time to have a sail.  Guests can jump into the water and no one is worrying about getting an unwanted tan or their hair (ladies understand :-) ).

We set sail at 2pm while it was nice and warm outside.  Enjoy some pictures below:boat cruise dominican republic

Dominican Republic Destination Wedding Day 2: Nikki & Malik

Hi friends!

Our first blog post of the year! We extremely apologize for the long delay; so many exciting things have been happening and we can’t wait to share them with you.

To kick off the year, we have decided to complete out post on the beautiful Dominican Republic wedding from last year.

The bride and groom did something different with their schedule. Usually destination events have one/two days of pre-events and then the last day is the wedding day. However, Nikki and Malik wanted to have the wedding on the second day so they could have some fun on the third day with their guests. An additional day to spend some more time with their nearest and dearest.

The day began with getting ready in the beautiful Paradisus Palma Real Royal Service Room (if you go to the Dominican Republic you should definitely stay in this room! You are truly a VIP and it includes your own butler!)

Dominican Republic Destination Wedding: Nikki & Malik

Hi friends!

We are really excited about the subject of today’s blog. As you know, MP loves destination weddings. One of the best parts of these weddings away is all the fun guests get to have in addition to the wedding day.

MP planned, designed and coordinated a beautiful wedding at the lovely Paradisus Palma Real Resort in the Dominican Republic. On the first night, we had the beach BBQ.

The décor was white linen and white chairs with orange, blue and green accents. We used the napkins and pillows to highlight these accents.

For seating, we used a mix of lounge seating and rectangular tables. The bamboo chargers and wooden lanterns were a beautiful complement to the décor.

We had a shoe check for guests to take off their shoes before stepping on the beach

The bride and groom also provided welcome bags. We really loved these and the bride and groom’s logo which was the theme through the weekend.

Guests were welcomed by a Dominican trio, who serenaded the guests with beautiful Dominican music.

Real Birthday: 60th Birthday Party in Johannesburg, South Africa

MP had a wonderful time planning and designing Mrs. Titilola Okupe’s 60th Birthday Party. The party was over two days. The first evening was an intimate dinner with family and close friends at the BICE Restaurant in Hyde Park. If you’ve never eaten at the restaurant, the food is quite amazing!!

The second evening was the main birthday celebration. We had the opportunity to transform a backyard into an all white, absolutely gorgeous affair for 30. If you know MP, you know we LOVE to do all white parties so we were absolutely over the moon! We used white as the base with crystal and silver accents. We then used some peach florals in the pool and some peach up lights for a small pop of color.

We worked with House of Décor and Events. They are very responsive, reliable, extremely professional and their décor is simply lovely! The beautiful and delicious all white cake was by Belle’s Patisserie.

Beautiful pictures by Christie Mann Photography!

Enjoy!!

Tiffany Themed Birthday Party

Hi friends!

Everyone knows we are in love with Darlington House; the Library upstairs is a perfect spot for all types of events.

We planned, decorated and hosted a Tiffany Themed birthday party for an absolutely beautiful person. The party was absolutely gorgeous and we had an amazing time. Anastasia at Darlington House was extremely helpful and made the planning process easy.

The celebrant asked her female guests to wear LBD (Little Black Dresses). The colors we used for the set up and decor were mainly white, black and blue.

Amazing pictures by WalePhotos :-)

Real Wedding: Christina & Eldra

Hi friends!

2014 has been an awesome year already; wedding season is almost in full swing. We hope to post more pictures soon.

Today, we would like to share a few pictures from the wedding of an absolutely awesome couple. Last year, we had the honor of coordinating Christina & Eldra’s wedding. They are an amazing and beautiful couple. We had a blast at their beautiful wedding! The wedding was held at College Park Marriott & Conference Center.

They are both doctors and therefore, we decided to use a hospital/doctor theme in the set up of the cocktail hour decor.

Thanks to Dotun Ayodeji for the amazing pictures :-)

The “waiting room” was the cocktail hour space; guests were asked to “check in” by finding their place cardsdoctor themed weddingdoctor theme party4k1c8186bride and groom place cardswedding guest book signagewedding photo book

Since the couple took amazing pictures with their wedding photographer, Dotun Ayodeji, during their pre-wedding photo shoots, they wanted to incorporate the pictures in their wedding. Therefore, we decided to incorporate the pictures in cocktail hour. We made “balloon chandeliers” and attached various pictures of the couple to the balloons. These were such a hit! The balloons were floating all around the cocktail hour space and the guests loved them!balloon chandeliercreative cocktail hour decorcreative cocktail hourpurple and pink cocktail hour

Guests also go to fill in their “prescriptions” while in the “waiting room”. Fun stuff! :-)medical doctor themed weddingwedding madlibspicture cocktail hour

The amazing BCG did the décor and lighting for the wedding reception. Absolutely beautiful!
