We’ve named signature cocktails after them; dressed them in bow ties and floral collars; their likeness has even been printed on fabric. Cheers to our beloved pooches!
Brittany and Andrew’s dog Henry inspired the signature cocktails (the “Henry” and “Henrietta”) at their fall wedding at Tuckahoe Plantation. One of our favorite printers created gold foil stamped drink stirrers in Henry’s likeness to dress up the (incredibly yummy) signature cocktails created by our go-to local caterer.
Megan and Will’s labs joined us for cocktail hour. We hired a professional dog handler to help us that evening — always a good idea to have a professional on hand dedicated exclusively to the bride and groom’s pups.
A Virginia artist hand illustrated a custom monogram for Katie and Joel, which included their pooch — you can see him just below the shield that surrounds the couples initials. So beloved was this pup that he made it onto Joel’s cummerbund and bow tie, both of which were custom-made by a local designer.
Cheers to our clients’ sweet pups and the fun they bring to celebrations! xoxo
We love how these chic acrylic accents add a quick dose of glamour to parties!

We love to tie a little something special on the bride and groom’s chairs, whether it is as simple as a double faced satin ribbon tied in a bow, a trinket that ties into the design or an embellishment, like a hand embroidered sash. Sweet details like these bring the design to life!
It might be sacrilege, but I’ve never really loved mint juleps (gasp). This bourbon slush, though? The best. Happy derby weekend!
