How has a week already passed since this stunning engagement we got to be a part of last weekend?! When Samantha from Simply Chic Events reached out to us about helping out with an intimate celebration for her sister, we were soooo down. We love a good winery day, and when you add on a surprise engagement, we are alllll about it! Matt and his soon-to-be sister-in-law put together the dreamiest set-up for the couple to enjoy with their closest family and friends following the proposal at Blue Valley Vineyard. Based on how gorgeous the day turned out, it clearly pays to have a wedding planner in the family!
As many of you know, our sister company, Victory Masks DC, has been busy creating some super fun new fashion face masks! These beauties are now all available for purchase online, and to celebrate their debut, we collaborated with a few of our amazing friendors on an over the top, cool and colorful shoot. The awesome Meg Lucks just joined forces with the talented Abby Jiu Photography team, and we felt so lucky to be able to work with Meg on one of her very first projects under the Abby Jiu umbrella! She truly helped bring our vision to life, and the pics below turned out better than we ever could have imagined. We also owe a special shout out to the amazing Amie Decker for creating some of the most creative and fun makeup looks we’ve ever seen!
In true SVR fashion, we decided to create some brand new tinsel backdrops to complement our fav fashion Victory Masks! Available in iridescent, silver, pink, and blue options, our tinsel beauties are SO. MUCH. FUN. Seriously, we can’t wait to see how our creative clients incorporate them into upcoming events! These new pretties are great options for festive photo booth backdrops, but we can also see our color-loving friends using them for a bright and bold ceremony or reception set-up. Whether you layer them with other backdrops for even more pop or choose to display a single backdrop, you really can’t go wrong. I mean, who doesn’t love tinsel?!
SURPRISE! Did you hear the news?! After receiving a number of requests, we’re now offering our handmade dinnerware sets for purchase! Each piece is handmade by us with love in our very own pottery studio. To provide work for our delivery team during the pandemic, our amazing pottery guru, Cole, has spent countless hours teaching our team pottery. With the help of our potters in training, we finally have the capacity to sell our handmade dinnerware and we couldn’t be more excited. If you’ve ever admired our rentals and pictured them in your very own home, you can now purchase our pretties and bring your vision to life! We are currently offering four of our most popular collections: the Soleil, Amalfi, Bloomington, and Langdon. All of these handmade ceramic beauties are now available to purchase online in 3-piece sets including dinner, salad, and bread and butter plates!
With large events on hold for the time being, we can’t deny that we’re missing big weddings like crazy! Until we can all be together again safely, we’re taking a walk down memory lane and reliving gorgeous days like this classic Virginia wedding from last July. Looking back, we are still so in love with this couple’s dreamy summer wedding! By combining a mix of glam, modern, romantic, and rustic elements, Andrew and Michelle’s Shadow Creek wedding managed to feel both elegant and relaxed. The barn at Shadow Creek was the perfect backdrop for this couple’s wedding reception, and they chose to incorporate multiple chair and table styles for a result that was both beautiful and functional! To keep things fun, Andrew and Michelle spiced up cocktail hour with games on the lawn, brought in a cool mobile bar, and a gorgeous seating area complete with pieces like our Chesapeake Sofa and Faye Chair that were perfectly in keeping with their blue color palette. Overall, their big day turned out so beautifully and had a family-style atmosphere that was both laid-back and inviting. We hope you enjoy the pics below, and that they serve as great inspiration for how to decorate your very own summer wedding!
