Blue Martini Party, 2011

Wednesday, December 28th, 2011

Another year has gone by, and once again the Blue Martini Party was the place to be for Washington, DC’s wedding professionals! It was our 4th year and the event is growing every year!

All the stars of the DC wedding industry came out to enjoy great conversation, the Willard’s famous hospitality, and, of course, blue martinis. The Willard is always a fantastic place, but DC Rental outdid themselves this year with the furniture and décor. Lucky for us, wonderfully fab Kelsey Thompson Photography shot the whole evening and created the great slideshow below so we could share it with you!

Thanks to everyone for coming and for making 2011 so great. Here’s to another marvelous year!

Wedding at Potomac Point Winery – Chelsea and Nick

Wednesday, December 21st, 2011

You know a wedding is going to be fun when it’s at a winery, and Chelsea and Nick’s wedding was no exception!

After their ceremony at Aquia Episcopal Church, the newlyweds and their guests headed to Potomac Point Winery in Stafford County, Virginia, where they wasted no time starting the celebration.

Everyone got excited when the wedding party was announced to “I Gotta Feeling” and “Party Like a Rock Star.” Then, when Chelsea and Nick took the floor as husband and wife to Michael Buble’s “Crazy Love,” the happy energy in the room went through the roof!

Chelsea and Nick’s photographer, Genevieve Leiper, was fantastic – as you can see from the pictures, every awesome moment was documented. She even caught Chelsea, a Redskins cheerleader, in a move that looks like something we’ve seen during a game!

The dancing didn’t stop all night – especially during the 20 minutes of Polka when everyone showed off their fancy footwork.

Best wishes, Chelsea and Nick!

Strathmore Hall Wedding DJ Playlist

Wednesday, December 14th, 2011

They say a picture is worth a thousand words.and it’s true. One shot of a first dance or a mid-wedding reception dance frenzy can capture the moment. But what, you may ask yourself as you gaze at the picture of people getting down, did the wedding DJ sound like?

Well, now you’ll have your answer! While deejaying a wedding recently at Strathmore Hall, we noted the playlist and created the audio sample below:

Pat is a Landing Force Communications Officer in the United States Marine Corps, while Ingrid is a Lieutenant in the United States Navy. We knew a military wedding was in store, complete with crisp uniforms and a sword salute. But when the dance floor opened up, it was Saturday Night Fever!

Thank you so much, Pat and Ingrid, for sharing your day with Chris Laich Music Services, and best wishes!

Lisa Boggs, Pat and Ingrid’s photographer, did a fantastic job capturing every fun, joyful moment! To see more of her wonderful images, visit her blog.
