Tarra's back with yet another kick-ass wedding - and this one has a bride in a blue dress which basically makes my whole day, week and month! It also has to be noted that looking through these photos, the smiles on Aileen and Tyrone's faces are absolutely infectious. I found myself grinning from ear to ear at practically every photo. What an amazingly beautiful, happy couple! Take it away, Tarra!
Aileen and Tyrone are a perfect example of why I love working in the wedding industry - and they are also yet another example of how we as planners become so personal and so close with our clients. A professional relationship sure, but oftentimes with a friendship/family flare. I felt like Aileen and I went wayyyyyy back. I felt like I was part of Tyrone’s family. And I felt like I’ve known their daughter Maya since birth. In fact, this awesome familial connection lead me to recommend the incredible DJ Premonition, who played at my very own wedding. I just knew he would be a great match and would rock the place!
This wedding took place at a beautifully maintained park community center in the heart of a residential neighborhood in Arlington. Aileen was full of no fuss, all fun, and great décor ideas including mason jars with twinkle lights and fresh cut flowers. Bistro lights were strung around the main room to make the space pop. My favorite part of all was the dessert spread, filled with freshly baked pies and cookies. All of these tasty treats were made with love by Aileen and Tyrone’s friends and family. Farm to Feast Catering did such an amazing job with arranging the dessert buffet and of course dinner was amazing as well. Tyrone’s mother contributed some special items to the menu, Jamaican patties and curry goat…YUM!
And of course this blog post would not be complete without a mention of that badass blue lace wedding dress. Aileen KILLED IT! So fun and so offbeat…speaking of which, her dress may have been stylishly offbeat, but her actual dancing skills were so on point! I totally think Aileen invented the running man (like, seriously). From jumping the broom to getting down low on the dance floor, I must say I think Aileen and Tyrone and their little Maya, too, had the time of their lives. Congrats again to you all!
