Seaside Glam Wedding at Allegria Hotel

I can’t imagine a better combination than a seaside and glam wedding.  This is exactly what happened on a perfect day in August at The Allegria Hotel when Fabienne wed her love, Fenciso!  It was all the bride envisioned for her special day. Full of sun, sea, family and friends.  This magnificent day was captured by photographers Liz Cuadrado and Ashley Joy.  Just peruse the images below to see all the magic and love they captured.  Beautiful flowers of succulents, peaches and cream roses, and lush greenery were all the rage.  Custom wedding invitations matched the glam wedding.  The show stopping glitter gatefold of the custom wedding invitations was the perfect teaser for the bling to come.  Shimmery card stocks and metallic envelopes complements this invitation suite.  The wedding glam is prevalent throughout. From the brides jewelry, sparkly pumps, custom wedding invitations, sash, and cake.  All of these perfect details made for a perfect day and memories beyond.

Elevate to the Perfect Custom Wedding Invitation

Hiya Lovelies! I am always thinking of how to get that “wow” effect on a custom wedding invitations suite. Knowing how to elevate the style of your perfect custom wedding invitation suite can be the difference between having your guests excited for your special day or having them dread the thought of going shopping for yet another toaster as a gift. Adding a few unique ideas can truly transform your invitations to a custom wedding invitations suite. You could just make plain wedding invitations that blend in with all the others, or you can follow a few simple steps to make them as memorable as the wedding itself.

Elevate your summer fun from cocktail to Poptail

poptail ingredients

Have you ever tried a Poptail?  A poptail is 1 part cocktail, 1 part popsicle and 100% summer fun.  As someone who is always to trying to squeeze every last bit of summer in,  this Labor Day weekend will be no different.  To start the party off right I am sharing this super easy and satisfying recipe for a prosecco popsicle widely known as a poptail.

For this poptail recipe, I splurged on these really cute popsicle molds. I love kitchen gadgets and I just really couldn’t resist them.  An ice tray,  small dixie cup, and wooden popsicle sticks will work just as well.

Ingredients list:

2 1/2 cups fresh chopped fruit (such as mango, pineapple, strawberries, watermelon)

1/2 cup of Simple Syrup

1/2 cup Prosecco (or other sparkling wine)

Juice of one lime/lemon (optional)

Step 1: Pulse fruits of choice in a blender or food processor until pureed and juice-like, about 1 minute.

Step 2: Combine fruit mixture, simple syrup, Prosecco, and citrus juice with a whisk in a medium bowl. Let stand until bubbles from Prosecco subside.

Step 3. Pour mixture evenly into popsicle molds. Insert an ice pop stick into each mold. Freeze for 8 hours or overnight.

Step 4.  Remove the molds from the fridge, unmold your poptail, grab your favorite magazine, find a lounge chair and enjoy!

This recipe has been adapted from My Recipes. I did use UnderWood Sparkling Wine for my recipe as I already had those cans on hand.  This post is not sponsored and these are my own opinions.

These poptails were pretty delicious and a total treat.  This is also a perfect do ahead recipe for entertaining at your next summer party.  If you happen to try it please let me know your thoughts!  Happy Summer!

Elegant Garden Wedding At The Meridian House Washington DC


Love Always Wins!  At this beautiful wedding this past July, those words were truly the spirt of the day.   The Meridian House, a magnificent historic mansion tucked away in a small enclave of N.W. Washington DC served as the backdrop for this lovely affair.  This enchanted garden wedding with just the right touches was captured by  Eli Turner.  The bride chose a palette in shades of green.  Splashes of blush set a soft tone throughout.  The bride’s bouquet was a vision of glam as crystals and flowers cascaded down the length of her gown.

The custom invitations and event branding were fashioned by Fete and Paperie. Front and center – a watercolor art piece – of the event venue evoked the WOW that every wedding needs to stir up excitement.  A custom monogram and crest was showcased out throughout many of the details.

Kevonne and David were “set-up” by some very well intentioned friends on Capitol Hill.  Love sparked quickly and they were soon inseparable.  A surprise engagement happened over one Thanksgiving among family and friends.  Their beautiful love story continues on along with enduring love and many memories together yet to come. Love always wins.
