DC Bridal Expo Success

Well, I originally planned on bringing a female friend to the D.C. Bridal Expo yesterday but she fell ill, so my sweet fiance offered to go with me instead. At first I thought it would be boring for him and that instead of spending the length of time I really wanted checking out vendors, I would end up leaving early out of guilt.

Boy was I wrong! It was exactly what Mr. Shirlington needed to make him feel like he was taking part in our planning and we were making decisions together. I think it was my mentioning of free samples from bakers and caterers that really won him over. While driving there, we discussed the one thing we wanted to learn most about: photographers.

Photographers we love for all budgets:

Hyon Smith Photography
- Amazing photos, packages starting at $3,750

Studio Kama- We felt like these guys really captured the happiness of the wedding day. I've never seen more candid smiles! Packages starting at $1,490

Centerpieces and tables we loved:

Perfectly Posh

Tierra Floral Design :



Mr. Shirlington and I loved the pocket design on the left and the color scheme on the right.

Tonight we're meeting with a Catholic officiant who has tentatively agreed to marry us at an outdoor venue. He is one of very few in the area who will even consider the idea of officiating a basic ceremony outside the walls of the church. More details to come!

Thanks for showing our table design -- we're the green one at the top with the paper lanterns! We liked it too. I blogged about it at soireespecialevents.blogspot.com if you want to see some more photos from the show.
