Laura & Joe May 30, 2009

This beautiful couple was a joy to work with! Laura, the bride was incredibly creative and organized- and knew exactly what she wanted- all of her vendors agreed- indeed one of the kindest and sweetest bride we've been fortunate enough to work with! We were delighted to make their day come together smoothly with our Day of Coordination Services. Thanks to Rob & Liz Pereda of Pereda Photography for sharing their stunning images from the day!

It was a beautiful spring day at the Hilton Garden Inn in Fairfax! Perfect for an outdoor garden ceremony!

Altar arrangements as well as the beautiful bouquets by Maryam Flowers.
Our emergency kit (as so wonderfully captured by Pereda Photography!) is always on hand for whatever a bride or her attendants may need!
