In our excitement about hitting #1 on The Washingtonian list again, we forget to include some very worthy colleagues in our shout-outs. This doesn't mean we don't love them; we were just too darn giddy!
Kudos to the fabulous folks at Entertainment Exchange for being voted #1 this year. We have used their great bands like Free Spirit, Nightsong and Highway Star for well over a decade now! Another well-deserved shout-out to Design Cuisine for being the top vote getter for caterers. We love working with Christine Cadima there; she's done so many of our fabulous weddings including one infamous one on a super-yacht during a flash flood. Hooray Design Cuisine!
Congratulations to Instyle Catering for making the list. Denise Thorne is so wonderful to work with and just about the sweetest person on the planet! Also big hugs to Kendall's Cakes for being the Reader's Choice. Her cakes are amazing and so is she. We could die happy surrounded by her lemon curd cake. Keep your eye on K. Rose Cakes. We sampled her pumpkin cupcakes at a recent event and were very impressed.
Big congratulations to two of our wedding planning colleagues who made the list, as well. We've known Michele Hodges since back in her Car Barn days and her inclusion on the list is well-deserved. We've also known Sara Franklin of Social Scene for ages and it's great to see her on the list, as well. Congratulations ladies!
We have no doubt that we've forgotten many more wonderful colleagues so be sure to check out the listings for yourself. Washingtonian Bride and Groom magazine hits newstands on December 12th and will contain the full list as well as two real weddings from Engaging Affairs! Don't miss it!
