Over the past few months the team at Engaging Affairs has changed. We've said farewell to some people and welcomed new members. It's been a lot of change but it has all been good! We couldn't be happier with our new team!
From left to right: Christine Godsey, Erica Selekman, Laura Weatherly, Taylour Ann Campbell, and Amanda McCabe.
Happy Friday from all of us to all of you!

We were so honored to work with an amazing team to put together "Frost Yourself at The W" on Thursday evening at The W D.C. We had such fun seeing the gorgeous creations and all the creative ways brides could "Frost" themselves!
The Great Room and foyer at The W were the perfect spaces to host the bridal experience. Amaryllis, John Farr Lighting and DC Rental helped us transform the space into a glitzy, luxurious setting filled with metallics, fur and shimmer!
Guests were welcomed by these fabulous fur and cros chairs and a couture wedding gown from Love Couture Bridal.
We transformed the Great Room into a showcase room for frosty decor. Amaryllis draping the space and lined one wall with tufted fabric panels then John Farr added the lighting. We used a single long table with gorgeous shimmery linens and glittering tableware from DC Rental and fabulous chairs from Amaryllis. Tall silver candlesticks and low compotes filled with white flowers ran the length of the table. Gorgeous!!
Thanks to Eli Turner for the stunning images! More "Frost Yourself" to come!
