Whiskey Rebellion {Vendor Love}

Looking for something fun and different for your entertainment?  How about a cool band that takes the whimsy of bluegrass and mixes it with jazz and rock and roll? We love “Whiskey Rebellion” for it’s versatility without being the “same old, same old.”  The cover everything from The Beatles to The Talking Heads to Guns ‘n’ Roses! You can hear samples of their music here and book them through Sam Hill Entertainment!

Whiskey Rebellion is our pick for the entertainment for this year’s big networking party that Engaging Affairs co-hosts with Atrendy Wedding and Simply Chic Events so you know we must really love them! Can’t wait to boogie down with these guys in a few weeks!

he band has recorded two regionally-acclaimed original albums, shared the stage with the Sam Bush Band and Carolina Chocolate Drops, and had their 2011 tour of the Pacific Northwest captured by filmmaker Tony Morin for a forthcoming concert film & documentary. – See more at: http://www.samhillbands.com/bands/whiskey_rebellion/#sthash.T9XfSM5V.dpuf

Drawing on their diverse musical backgrounds, The Whiskey Rebellion mix the spontaneity of bluegrass, the collectiveness of jazz, and the urgency of rock and roll to create their own unique take on everything from traditional bluegrass to anthemic party favorites. The band covers a wide array of artists ranging from The Beatles to The Talking Heads to Guns ‘n’ Roses, but their approach is always steeped in their acoustic roots and uniquely lends itself to being both listenable and danceable. – See more at: http://www.samhillbands.com/bands/whiskey_rebellion/#sthash.T9XfSM5V.dpuf

The Engaging Affairs Team!

We’re all so busy planning weddings with our cool clients that it takes some serious effort for the team to get together for a little fun. So it can be a while between team pictures. I love this photo from our recent dinner out at Restaurant Nora. Incredible food and lots of laugh!

Lady {Bride} In Red!!

Here are a few sneak peek photos from my AMAZING wedding in May at the Four Seasons, Washington, DC.  I absolutely adored this couple and their pups!  I knew I was in love with this bride and her rock n’ roll style wedding when she told me she was wearing red instead of the traditional white!! 

Big thanks to Bill at Edge Flowers, Tina at the Four Seasons, and Susan of Susan Stripling Photography!  More photos and vendors to come!

xoxo,

Amanda

Classic Courthouse Ceremony {Morgan & Jonathan}

There is something so classic about a couple getting married a judge’s chambers with the bride in a white suit. Of course, when the court is the Supreme Court and the judge is Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, you know the wedding is something serious. Just a sneak peek from Amanda’s glamorous wedding at the Supreme Court and Four Seasons. More to come!
