Another favorite eco-chic designer is Deborah Lindquist , who mixes “reincarnated” and new Earth-friendly fabrics to create lushly beautiful gowns that are unabashedly romantic, more old Hollywood siren than sixties flower child. (dress to left)
Let me start off by saying thank to all the vendors, brides and mothers of brides, both past and present, who have sent well wishes and offers to plan my wedding. This is why I consider myself so lucky. I do something I absolutely LOVE and get to work with the most fabulous people.
So, it seems I am now planing my own wedding. I guess I had to experience it to believe it, but I was astonished that people I called to tell the evening that it happened, actually asked me if we picked the date! We have been engaged two hours people! Anyway, now I know how all you feel and why you call me the next day! But first thing’s first.
These are both amazing projects that help empower women so please check them out!
Christine’s family has vacationed in Marco Island for many years during her childhood which made it a natural location for their wedding. Family and friends flew in from Seattle to DC and the sun drenched beaches made for a glorious backdrop during the cocktail hour and pictures at Hideaway Beach Club.

Breakfast at Tiffany’s… well almost. It was an early morning yesterday as I wrenched myself out of bed to attend a 7:30 am ISES event at the Mayflower Hotel. I was amazed as I walked into the ballroom at 7:35 to see many of my peers already bright eyed and busy talking to friends and enjoying a morning wake up, a mimosa! Over 100 guests came out to enjoy breakfast and hear from Bill Hanbury, President, Destination, DC, about how the year finished up and what we should all expect not only for inaguration, but for the next few years in this region. Good news, DC is pulling tourists from not only all over the country, but all over the world and it doesn’t look as though that will stop. There are great things to do and see here including the new DC Visitor’s Center and the upcoming Lincoln Bicentenial. Sounds like nobody will be disappointed to leave 2008 behind.
My day in DC continued as some of my peers and I went on to have lunch at the Fairfax Hotel. Just finished it’s 18 month complete renovation period, the hotel, formerly the Westin Embassy Row, sparkled from head to toe. Everything from the lobby to the ballroom, the guest rooms to the grad re-opening of the famed Jockey Club, this hotel is ready to shine in 2009. I am working on a wedding there for June 27th and I know it will be amazing. Stay tuned for that!
