January 2010 will mark five years in the wedding and event industry! Crazy! I have met and worked with many talented and great people. That is probably one the things I like most about my 'job'. I remember the first wedding I did at the Richmond city building. It was a spring green color which is still a fav of mine. I must say however, I have come a long way! A couple of changes that will be coming this year. First, I will be going away from the Dream Weddings and Events name. I will be using " Marcie Taylor Events" It's just easier. I also am giving up the 24/7 of washing linens. I am finally handing that over to professionals which will free up a lot of my time and will produce a better product for my brides. I am always looking for something new to offer to the brides in the area. Last year I wanted to bring in a couple of options for lounge furniture and I am still wanting to add to the selection. I now have four types of chairs to choose from and have an unlimited selection of linens. The pintuck and Flocked taffeta are a favorite! I look forward to another great year and wish all of you the best for the new year!

Silver and persimmon. We used my fruitwood chiavari chairs with a Persimmon taffeta chair tie. On the tables we had a Platinum Pintuck. It was beautiful! I don't have photos with the centerpieces but her are a couple snap shots. Mackley Photography was the photographer and Andi Saxton did the planning and decorating. Justin Hamilton did a great job with the catering. They brought in umbrellas that gave the needed shade but didn't block the amazing view!
This was a fun wedding to help with. Niki and her mom Stacey were great! It was in there yard and rained all day the day before and all day the day after! Amazing that the day of her wedding turned out to be perfect temperature. Definitely not hot but not to cool either. She decided on the natural chiavari chairs with a lime sheer chair tie. The linens we used were a orange and fuchsia irridescent which looked great outside.
It was a crazy, fun summer. I have a week off and so now is the perfect time to add a few events. SDL - Space Dynamics lab - is having a great event next week so be sure to check back to look at photos. There is one event that Oakstream Photography shot at the Riter Mansion that you need to see! I haven't received any photos yet, but as soon as I do they will be posted. It will show you how just mixing textures and colors with your linens can make a great impact on the decor of your event. We used a Wisteria pintuck with a crinkle burgandy chair tie. Then a shiny silver satin for the high boys and a lamour plum linen for the cake. It was beautiful! Vicki Yonker did the floral and decorating, Andi Saxton brought in her lounge area, Culinary Concepts catered, and of course it was at the Riter Mansion where EVERY event looks great!
