Fourth of July Wedding at Dahlgren Chapel + Army Navy County Club

How are we already half way through the year!? It seemed like I was just taking down our holiday decor a few weeks ago! As we are gearing up to head to our friends farm for the 4th, I can’t help but remember this wedding with Katelyn James Photography at Dahlgren Chapel and the Army Navy Country Club. I know most couples try to have their weddings represent their personalities, but this one couldn’t have been more perfect! The Kate Spade inspired stationery, blush tones, and bowties fit these two perfectly.

Our family has grown by two…

It was a HUGE weekend at the farm for Brennan and I. We had been planning to get a companion for my horse, Pruitt, for ages since he’s at my farm alone (preferably before we brought him here). Brennan and I went back and forth and back and forth on what kind of companion we wanted. I was set on getting a husband horse, but my husband wanted a donkey. Seeing that we already had one horse and aren’t spending much time riding, Brennan thought a donkey would be a better suited for us right now. We looked for a donkey for what seemed like YEARS. Having been in the equestrian community, I thought donkeys were as easy to access as horses…Well I was WAY wrong. We looked on Craigslist and were only finding intact ones and I didn’t want to deal with the aggression associated with that. Finding a donkey that wasn’t completely feral and update to shots, etc was nearly IMPOSSIBLE to find! We finally found a rescue in Westminster, MD that was perfect for us- Little Longears Miniature Donkey Rescue. We went up about 5-6 weeks ago and fell in love with all of them and decided on the two guys you’ll see below. Between Brennan going out of town for work, two blizzard/ice Storms, and going out of town it seemed like these guys were NEVER going to get here!

It was so surreal to see them pull up and to finally have them home with us! We are so excited for you to join our family!!

This is the mini- Nick/Karl. We always said we would have a miniature donkey named Karl, but we may keep it Nick…TBD! The standard size one is Levi. He’s the sweetest little cuddle bug.

For a size comparison, there they are next to each other! Nick/Karl is SOOOO small! I love it!

I couldn’t forget the guy that made all of this happen! This is my Thoroughbred, Pruitt. He’s the OG of the farm!

Here’s the whole family! I’m so thankful they all seem to love each other!

Deandra - "You will only find in the Jews an ignorant and barbarous people, who for a long time have joined the most sordid avarice to the most detestable superstition and to the most invincible hatred of all peoples which tolerate and enrich them." (&,&ut;Juifqoquot; Dictionnaire Philosophique) "What is the basis of Judaism? A practical passion and greed for profit. To what can we reduce his (the Jew's) religious worship? To extortion. What is his real God? Cash!" – Karl Marx, founder of Communism, quoted in the British Guardian, July-August, 1924.

Weekend in Hunt Country- Marshall, VA

Hunt Country is filled with so many beautiful, small historic towns. Living in Warrenton we are centrally located to what feels like everything! An hour to Leesburg, an hour and a half to Charlottesville, so we always like to take little trips to grab a bite to eat, drink and shop at local businesses!

My husband is a breakfast food addict so I had been dying to take him up to the new Red Truck Bakery in Marshall. They just recently opened a much bigger location and moved their headquarters from our little town, Warrenton, to the Marshall location. We both finally had a morning totally free and decided to pop over. The town of Marshall is SO cute! They have another store I’ve been dying to check out, The Whole Ox. It’s a boutique butchery that additional sells produce, cheeses, housemade goods, wine and beer!

I totally recommend stopping by Marshall if you’re looking for a fun little outing! I took my camera out and snapped some pics of the little town to share!

Till next time, happy planning! Cheers!

Holiday Workshop in Bluemont, VA

Earlier this month we teamed up with Petals and Hedges and Julie Ha Calligraphy for a holiday workshop. Attendees created beautiful holiday wreaths, learned calligraphy, and Tricia shared holiday party etiquette. Tricia worked with Morgan, at Petals and Hedges, to create this beautiful winter tablescape. With this unseasonably warm weather it still doesn’t feel like Christmas has already come and gone so I’m going to look at these pictures by the amazing Vicki Grafton Photography and pretend to start the holiday season over again!

Till next time, happy planning! Cheers!!

Holiday Wedding at the Willard- Washington, DC

The older I get the more I just LOVE the holidays. The past two years I’ve been able to design weddings right around them and it’s always so fun for me! The Willard has some of the best holiday decor in Washington, DC. I think the year before last they mentioned spending over a million dollars in new decorations. That is insane!

This couple could not have been more genuine and amazing to work with! Enjoy these pictures below taken by our friend, Natalie Franke Photography. See even more pictures on her blog and on the Washingtonian blog!

Till next time, happy planning! Cheers!!
