Tickled Pink in Potomac

I cannot even begin to tell you how overwhelmed with emotion I am with all the support I’ve gotten from friends, family and co-workers over the last 8 months. My sisters Jenny and Tricia threw me a beautiful shower at good friend Dr. Alex’s Potomac home.

It was more than perfect– it was as I told the crowd– a room filled with so much love. Wish I could post the hundreds of pictures and special moments captured by REVAMP.com’s Daniel Swartz and Rita Lawrence with Bitsy Baby Photography. Please check out their galleries. Sweet thanks to Frosting: A Cupcakery for sending devilishly good dessert. No cupcake was left behind. Shout out to the gorgeous Lauren Von Der Pool and staff with green catering company Von Der Pool Gourmet.  I didn’t learn til after the party that the ‘beef wontons’ were vegan! I would’ve never known. They were delicious!

The best part of all? Seeing so many women from different phases of my life- high school, college, SC, DC, News, philanthropy and  mamas-to-be coming together to help me celebrate my first step into motherhood. Thank you everyone from me and baby “A”. Read more about the shower at REVAMP.com where Leigh Macdonald wrote a very kind recap of the party.

Dresses, Cake, historic… a Winchester Wedding

The bride with her golden locks down was darling in her white chiffon gown and sweetheart neckline. The groom was handsome in white vest and tie. The bridesmaids looked like soft lilac blossoms in JCrew silk chiffon ‘Taryn’ dresses in sweet thistle. Following the ceremony the reception was held at the historic George Washington Hotel.  The cake flawless and mini wedding cupcakes in customized boxes at each table were sweet savoirs for guests unable to wait til the cutting ceremony. Congratulations to my sorority sister and sweet friend through the years… Kinsey and her love Phil

As the Newlyweds wished… we promise to Eat, Drink and Be Married!

Oh Snap! Wedding in West Point

Susan and Matt Longley in Bellevue, Virginia May 8, 2010

I had the pleasure of visiting West Point Virginia for the first time. It’s the home of 3 rivers, 2 bridges, 1 special place. It’s perhaps most special to my dear friend Susan Rabil who wed her soul mate Matthew Longley there.  It’s a quaint little town that thrives off a paper milled. On May 8th it played home to quite a party.  The reception was held at the gorgeous Bellevue estate in Bellevue Virginia. We sipped lemonade in mason jars and found our seat assignment planted in real grass.

SUPERSTITION: On the right is a pictuer of Susan digging for a bottle of Jack. They buried it months ago as a good luck charm so that it wouldn’t rain. Legend has it it is if it does you drink it… if it doesn’t you pass it on to the next person in the family who’s getting married. We got wind… no rain and despite a couple guests attempts to crack the bottle.. it stayed sealed tight.

Other highlights included Georgetown Cupcakes in leu of cake. I also loved getting together with all the AOIIS… three… Kristina, Kinsey and Alicia were in Susan’s wedding.  One of the biggest emotional moments… when Susan danced with her grandfather, Fred.  There wasn’t a dry eye in the tent.
