A Friendsgiving Feast

November 26, 2019  •  Leave a Comment

I have so many things to be thankful for this year, and one of them is how God led me to make some great connections in the wedding industry. One of my goals this year was to be a part of an amazing Styled Shoot and I love how that came about in October. Maya Mahoney, the lovely Event Planner of Honey & Lavender Events, and I got connected on Instagram over the summer and we started talking about coming up with a creative shoot. Of course, the talented and creative "Maya Bee" came up with a Friendsgiving Feast idea. Friendsgiving Feasts are becoming so popular these days and if you're a Bride-to-be looking forward to a fall wedding, THIS is the theme want to consider! A Wedding Celebration and a Friendsgiving Feast are such a beautiful and heart warming combination!

I cannot thank all the vendors and our beautiful models enough, who so willingly and quickly made things work out! A huge shout out to Kelly of Modern Trousseau DC and Amy Owen of Tudor Place for their support through it all. Everyone who was on board for this shoot was creative, talented, and a delight to work with! I sure hope we get to work more together in the future. 

Brides to be, here's the list of vendors you want to reach out to if you're planning your wedding around the DC area:

Planning: Honey and Lavender Events

Venue: Tudor Place

Dress: Modern Trousseau

MUA & Hairstylist: Priscilla Beauty 

Florist: Black Calla Events 

Cake and Catering: Sugar Collaborations 

Calligrapher and Stationer: Simply Jessica Marie and Jen Simpson Design

Models: Jame and Emma


As much as I love orange pumpkins, a Friendsgiving Wedding had to have more of my favorite white pumpkins, candles, and beautiful florals. Our idea was to stick to white and peach instead of the traditional deep colors of fall. Fall, for me,  is just "a second spring, where every leaf is a flower" and we wanted our theme to have a fresh new perspective!

 I love how Jessica of Simply Jessica Marie created this DC map for us to use for our feast in the heart of Georgetown, DC. What a great idea to include a little map of your city as part of your invitation suite!

I am SO in love with the idea of including a crest for wedding invitations and menu cards!

Not to forget the stunning wedding gowns Modern Trousseau has to offer! Love their handmade wedding gowns made only in the USA. This one is their famous Nola gown.
