We transformed a family room into seating for 75 guests for the ceremony. This area also hosted the reception. Guests arrived between 5:00 - 6:00pm and were greeted by the hostess in the foyer as they signed the guest book. Guests sampled hour d'orves and sipped on their choice of wines while anxiously awaiting for the nuptuals to begin. After an intimate ceremony, the couple and guests dined, danced and swayed to melodic tunes until midnight.
We hosted a baby shower in Richmond, VA for mom, dad and about 75 guests. The happy couple entrusted Occasions Your Way to handle every detail of the shower. We chose a quaint lounge located in the downtown Shocko Slip area. Guests enjoyed a cocktail hour from 4:30pm - 5:30pm while sipping on various cocktails and munching on fruits and veggies. The shower began promptly at 5:30pm with games and food. The menu consisted of southwestern egg rolls, chicken sliders, mini burgers, marinated shrimp, and chicken wings. The shower concluded with the couple opening their many gifts and exchanging miniature cupcakes and other favors with each of their guests to remember this joyous occasion!
The limousine (arrived to pick up the birthday celebrant around 4:00 pm) fully detailed with champagne, roses and dimmed lighting throughout the interior. He was first treated to a tantilizing spa treatment at Robert Andrew, The Salon and Spa in Gambrills, MD. After some much needed pampering, Jerrol was wisked away by limousine to join his guests for dinner. The party of six dined at Fogo De Chaso, a Brazillian Steak House in Washington, D.C. After filling their pallet, the birthday party toured the Metroplitan area and did a little bar hopping til midnight; afterwhich the limousine chaffeured the entire birthday party to each of their destinations to conclude the evening.
I chose an escape to the Aloft, National Harbor for this happy couple to experience an evening of romance. Their room was sprinkled with rose petals throughout and candles were meticulously placed as well as fresh cut flowers. An array of cheeses, delectible fruits and shrimp cocktail awaited the couple upon arrival. An evening tour was scheduled with OnBoard Tours afterwhich the couple enjoyed a romantic, moonlit dinner. They returned to chilled champagne, strawberries, lingerie and a gift basket to compliment their evening.
