We headed to Washington, DC for the WeddingPro Experience DC with The Knot + WeddingWire. The day was all about learning, mingling and inspiring the wedding pro community with some very talented educators. The rustic venue and beautiful rooftop at City Winery DC provided the perfect canvas for this event.
We had so much fun hanging with talented wedding professionals that were eager to learn. Together we learned about the inclusion (r)evolution, how to build and empower a team, how to enhance the client experience and so much more!
Magnolia Bluebird Design + Events planned and designed the WeddingPro Experience DC with fun summer colors that popped, using shades of pink including rose, peach, coral, and magenta. Kaleigh of Méldeen, The Knot Worldwide’s event branding partner, helped create this bright color scheme with pops of white using the on-stage furniture and podium. Together their vision came to life through gorgeous floral arrangements, fun table settings with gold-embroidered plates and tasty bites at the cocktail hour.
A few more of our favorites from the day included:
- The vibrant floral arch that popped against the rustic stage backdrop (Sarah Khan Event Styling + Magnolia Bluebird Design + Events + Revolution Event Design + Production)
- The non-alcoholic beverage bar that helped us kick off the day (Unbuzzed Drinks)
- The Brazilian Sound Trio that eased us into cocktail hour with their smooth jams (EastCoast Entertainment)
- The DIY margarita and specialty cocktail bar (Cocktail Curations)
- The vibrant lunch decor and delicious menu (Sarah Khan Event Styling + Magnolia Bluebird Design + Events + Nuage Designs, Inc.+ City Winery DC)
