Hi! My name is Lindsey and I am an aspiring event planner originally from outside of Chicago, IL. I attended American University and graduated in 2014 with a degree in legal studies.  After graduation, I took a year off to prepare for law school, but during that time my desire to become a lawyer eventually became nonexistent.  I had no clue what to do besides to continue on with preparing for law school and trying to make the best of it. However, during my free time I found joy in planning family events.  Whether it was a baby shower or a holiday party, I was always the go to planner.  After hearing people tell me how great the events were and realizing how happy I was planning them, I decided to set my LSAT books aside and focus on becoming a full time event planner. In my quest to achieve my dream career, I am honored to be blogging for Events to a T and I look forward to sharing my posts about event planning with you.

Eco-Friendly Weddings

In honor of Earth Day, I want to celebrate the ease in which you can plan a “green” wedding. There are so many ways in which you can make your wedding more eco-friendly. From the food to the favors – whatever your comfort level – any small thing you can do to be more conscientious about the waste your event is creating or being mindful of the impact you are making can make a big difference for our planet!

Tree Sapling Favors – favors you can reuse

via eco-beautiful weddings

Herb Escort Cards, Table Names or Favors

via weddingwire

Recycled Escort Cards

via dream green wedding

100% Cotton Invitations with 100% post consumer recycled content can still look amazing!

via paper crave

Locally grown flowers cut down on you carbon foot print

via dax knows

Catering that uses local, organic ingredients and go as vegetarian as possible

via natural home and garden

Eco-Friendly Wedding Dress

via Pink Rock Bride

You can of course go as far with making your wedding as “green” as you want,  you can have no favors, go paperless for your invitations and save the dates, even have no fresh flowers, use only plants, which can be just as beautiful and can be replanted. You can also make sure all of your vendors are green, ask how your venue how they get rid of waste, ask what your caterer does with left over food, ask your planner what they do with flowers left after the wedding. Any small thing you do with  make a difference. Happy Earth Day!

Happy Anniversary Julya & Tommy

Julie and Gaby were married on a beautiful September evening in the most lovely, relaxed, ceremony at the gorgeous Elk Run Vineyards, where they threw a super fun pig roast, had a rockin’ band and just really had a meaningful, thoughtful event for their freinds and family.

DIY Lighting

I’ll admit, when a client utters the words “DIY” I do get a little worried. Not that I’m afraid of a little crafting or that I don’t love the way some DIYing can look, because I do! But I digress, there is a whole other post here about why I don’t think you should try to DIY your whole wedding, (hint hint, it has something to do with stress and time management). So, when a client said to me that she wanted to use a DIY lighting company  I had never heard of I told her “ok, let’s try it for that great price”, but I was worried and I told her that too! Luckily she had a great attitude and an adventurous spirit and we ordered uplighting from Superlative Events for her wedding. The company is local, so we felt good about the lights being shipped to us since they were not coming from a distance that I couldn’t drive to in case of emergency. We had them shipped to the venue. They came in a carrying case (a heavy one, but it had wheels) with exact directions inside on what to do. There was also a video online that we could watch. We got them out the night before and tested them and it was super easy. The day of the wedding, I was able to set them up for my client, turn them on and viola, beautiful uplights, no lighting technician needed, just little old me! At the end of the night I packed them up and we sent them back the next day. So easy, such a great price and so worth it! I highly highly recommend trying out Superlative Events if you are interested in doing your own uplighting. They offer a great service.  was so pleased as was the couple!

Real Weddings: Elizabeth & Joe

Elizabeth & Joe were married at the chic Hotel Monaco in downtown DC in October. The hotel’s art deco design fit in the the couple’s asthetic for what they were picturing for their big day. Elizabeth knew she wanted deep jewel tones, a little bit art deco, a little bit rustic and little DC. And she pulled off that mixture beautifully. Add my favorite florist and photographer and you get this amazing wedding!

Real Engagement: Elizabeth & Joe

Elizabeth and Joe were a super fun couple to work with! Elizabeth knew exactly what she wanted (which makes my job so much easier and working with her so much more fun) and she was just lovely and not stressed! Another awesome perk of working with this couple was that I loved their taste (that isn’t always the case – shhhh).  But I’m getting ahead of myself…this is just their adorable engagement shoot by one of my very favorite photographers, Pier 23 Photography. Enjoy and stay tuned for their wedding coming soon.
