Are dates and numbers important to you when planning your wedding? Ever thought about a unique wedding date? I have a Jamaica destination wedding client who wanted to get married 4.4.14.
Have you considered getting married on a consecutively numbered date like 11.12.13 or on 12.13.14? @cbssunday suggests getting married at the consecutively numbered time shown above. How fun!

I recently had the pleasure of experiencing St Lucia for the third time. It was a truly incredible experience! St Lucia is simply breathtaking and I am so in LOVE with the island. St Lucia is perfect for destination weddings, for honeymoons, for family vacations, for adventurers, for those that seek an exotic location, for nature lovers, for history seekers…there is something for everyone in St Lucia.
In St Lucia the scenery is breathtaking, the food delicious, the people so warm and friendly, the sunsets like no other in the world. St. Lucia wins rewards repeatedly for the “Most Romantic Destination”. I can vouch for that title. I honeymooned there in 2003!
There is so much to discover on the island: the majestic Piton Mountains, the lush and tropical rainforest, the Sulphur Springs of Soufriere, or the Caribbean coral reefs. St Lucia is simply paradise.
Ready to visit paradise? Contact us at 301.358.1818 to plan your St. Lucia dream adventure or book your getaway today.

What better way to celebrate a marriage than with a rustic-themed wedding? This theme can be executed in several ways making each wedding beautiful in its own intimate and unique fashion. Rustic can be thought of as a rural or country western appeal made plain and simple.
Some of you may stop at the term “country western” and think that this theme may not be for you. Fear not, this idea involves way more than just cowboy boots and mason jars. Rustic chic has become one of the latest trends in the wedding industry. Event planning experts have found ways to apply this idea to special occasions with the utmost elegance. The combination of lace and burlap as well as the use of intricate wooden accents are common aspects included in the rustic theme.
Flexibility is a recurrent feature in the rustic trend. It can be implemented for an event inside or outside, during all seasons and can be amended with just about any color scheme. Not to mention, there is an endless list of “do it yourself” decorations that can reduce wedding costs and make for an enjoyable activity with your bridal party.
For rustic-themed wedding inspiration follow Zuriana’s Elegant Occasions on Pinterest!

Are you planning a wedding or a bridal shower? Consider the trendy chevron pattern for a possible theme.

It’s simple and economizing aesthetic adds a contemporary feel to any project you choose to include in your event.
