The last few weeks have been a whirlwind for me and the Geomyra Lewis Weddings and Events team; two back-to-back wedding showcases, planning meetings with our 2013/14 brides, and tons of emails and phone calls exchanged as we gear up for exciting things ahead! On March 3rd we participated in the Engaged! In Washington 2013 luxury bridal showcase hosted by Engaged! Magazine. This spectacular event took place at three highly sought after venues in the DC area: The St. Regis Hotel, The Willard Hotel and the Decatur House. Veronica and I set up shop at the Decatur House and were among Washington’s elite wedding professionals.
After a few short weeks of planning and a morning to prepare, we were excited for the doors to open that afternoon!
Our lounge space adorned with custom pillows, ghost chairs and a fun hot pink rug was warm, welcoming and was a perfect spot to sit and chat with brides.
The Geomyra Lewis Weddings and Events Relaxation Bar was a huge hit among the attendees. The showcase attendees spent a few minutes chatting with me and Veronica before selecting a favor of their choice. Veronica and I covered the tables with items that I found locally (Wal-Mart, Ross, Marshalls, etc) and from a few of my friends online.
We designed a tables-cape under the tented courtyard of the Decatur House. Our bold, majestic and elegant table received rave reviews throughout the evening. Janet Flowers of Janet Flowers Wedding and Event Design did an AMAZING job designing the centerpieces for our tables. Wildflower Linen’s new Odessa Platinum Gold overlay looked great paired with the Gold Shantung linen provided by DC Rental. The Shantung Fuschia tie-back chair covers matched the flowers in the centerpieces perfectly. The Claret Gold Rim plates looked stunning atop the Gold Beaded chargers. Infinity Gold flatware and Imperial Gold Rim Glassware completed our look.
