Spring Wedding at Woodend

If you can think back to April 19th, just a few weeks ago, the day was absolutely wonderful! I opened up my 2009 Spring season with Dena & David at Woodend Audubon Sanctuary in Chevy Chase, MD. The ceremony took place in the grove and we were so fortunate as the rain held off until the cocktail hour started indoors - it couldn't have been more perfect timing!

Ralph Alswang did a fabulous job with the photographs and has put together a slide show of the day (link below). Occasions Catering was marvelous to work with and New Monopoly from Bialek's Music hit the ground running with the Hora right off the bat! Petal's Edge Florist did a lovely job with the Chuppah and was even able to match the tree blossoms to the wedding colors - magical! John Farr Lighting was also on-site to enhance the dinner location.

Check out the slide show here!!

It was a wonderful wedding all the way through and I couldn't have had a better team of vendors to pull it all off.

PS. Dena & David were also in the NY Times Engagement Section - how exciting!

Until next time!

Nikki Beach Resort in Turks and Caicos

We've been lucky enough to do some gorgeous destination weddings over the years, and we especially love destination weddings on the water. Caribbean water, if possible! So we just had to pass along the news about the Nikki Beach Resort in Turks and Caicos (and a great deal, as well).

Recently rated #2 on the Travel Channel’s 21 Hottest Caribbean Escapes, Nikki Beach Resort is part of the Worldwide Nikki Beach Luxury brand famous for it’s European style entertainment and beach clubs. The first of many resorts to come, Nikki Beach Resort in Turks & Caicos is a 423-acre gated property including a private beach, infinity pool, serenity area, beach club, and restaurant.

An exclusive and intimate resort experience offering 48 luxury suites with sleek, modern residential décor, all boast an ocean view address. World class amenities include VIP Limo airport transfers, a Personal Assistant for each guest (now you're talking!), a pre-ordered “home-style” wet-bar including gourmet meats, cheeses and snacks (how cool is that?), Signature Nikki Bedding, and a Pillow Menu (so luxurious that even the pillow gets a menu) for ultimate comfort. A first class restaurant, Café Nikki embodies Old World Global cuisine with a Caribbean twist. Plus it boasts the world’s first-ever ecologically friendly mega-yacht marina. You know how we love that!

This resort seems practically built with weddings in mind and offers several ideal locations for wedding events. Whether you choose the a private beach, the wedding gazebo located down a long bamboo walkway right over the ocean or the 5th floor, 1,500 sq.ft. open air terrace with a magnificent 3 sided view, your event will be spectacular.

Right now they are running an exclusive special of Pay for 3 nights, and Get 1 free with the promotional code ADDNIKKI. (Offer expires October 31, 2009.) So even if you aren't planning a destination wedding, you can take advantage of a good bargain and have a few days away from it all.

Doesn't this place look amazing? I can feel the tension melting away just looking at the stunning photos. I think maybe we need to take a company trip down to Nikki Beach Turks and Caicos so we can be ready when a bride wants to host her wedding here! All in the name of work, of course. Shall we pack our bags, ladies?
