English Garden Affair

The royal wedding is in full swing {quite literally} I'm up early watching it as I write this...aside from the excitement of seeing all the guests and their fancy hats, I have noticed the garden like decor that lines the aisles of Westminster Abbey. Unexpected, but very charming.

Rolling Ladder

Ladder isn't the first thing in mind when you think about kitchen design...but it creates such a unique touch.

Lot's To-do!

I'm busy checking things off my wedding to-do list,  like ordering table numbers. I found these on Etsy (Shine Invitations) and they are beautiful.

Monday Inspiration

A very chic space for a snappy start to your week.

Don't you love the table lamps? And who would think the mix of a geometric and toile print would go so well? Love the juxtaposition of it all.

Wonder for your Walls

A new Schumacher wall covering has my head in whimsical, I love it!

A lovely spot for a laundry room, just as local designer Draza Stamenich created in the 2009 D.C. Design House

It's no surprise that I found this on Etsy: Primele

Monday Inspiration

Who says you can't dress up a doorway? I love the idea of draping an entry to another room - makes the entrance a little more grand.

30 Day Countdown

{Warning: sappy post today!}

In exactly one month, Pat and I will be getting married! I'm a bit overwhelmed and recently had a few stressful moments, but overall feeling so thankful. We have such wonderful, helpful and gracious people involved in our big day and it's such a piece of mind.    

And the best part to me, rain or shine, is getting to marry Pat. I could go on and on about him, but all I will say is that I'm such a lucky girl.

{Photo by our fabulous photographer, Meredith Montague}

I can't wait to share pictures with you all - here are a few details for now...

Our cake will be similar to this one - three round tiers with swiss dots. We will also have our monogram on the top tier!

Along with the cake - a dessert table!! Yum!!

My sister designed our invitation - I love it!

My favorite part is the RSVP card!

I'm dying to show you my dress - but that will have to wait. Here is what our darling flower girl will wear...with our monogram on the sash. Love it! Find it here.

The ceremony will be at the Georgetown University Dahlgren Chapel - the inside is beautiful.
