Wedding in a Week with MIX 107.3!


We had the pleasure of spending the day with Heather and Gary, and their friends and family, while they celebrated their “Wedding in a Week” contest win, hosted by Washington Bridal Showcase, WeddingWire, and MIX 107.3 at

George Washington’s Historic Mount Vernon Estate and Inn.

The wedding ceremony was officiated by Joyce Cochran of Say I Do Your Way, and the fabulous reception music was performed by Washington’s Best.


The Inn’s Brunch was tastefully done and everyone enjoyed the variety of foods available!

 All of the details were orchestrated by Tyler Fitzhugh of Voila! Event Studio, and everything ran on time and came together beautifully!  Great job by Tyler, who was an absolute pleasure to work with!

The announcements and invitations were created by Paper Talk.

Heather, Gary and their friends and family hammed it up in the ShutterBooth while enjoying the fun paper props from Say Cheese! Paper Props by Carla David.  We even had a few people bring George Washington himself back to life with the top hat and beard props by Carla!



Heather’s stunning gown was selected based upon votes by the public (and it was the one I voted for, too!) provided by Couture Miss Bridal.  The Wedding rings for Heather and Gary were provided by Chas. Schwartz and Son, and were engraved with cherry blossoms; a touching reminder of the spot where Gary proposed under the beautiful cherry blossoms in DC last April.


Daniel McGarrity Photography was there to take the formal wedding portraits, as well as capturing the action and fun being had by all!  The beautiful wedding cake was provided by Cakes by Happy Eatery, and it was EXCELLENT!   More yummy treats were provided by the Lollipop Chef.   The Bride’s and Bridesmaids’ gorgeous bouquets that Heather designed were created by Bloom Fresh Flowers, and will be preserved by All Seasons Floral Preservation.


The Bridal Party’s hair was beautifully executed and styled by Ashley Riddle of Up Dos for I Dos.  Finalizing the group’s beautiful look was makeup by Isabella Bastien.  The Bride’s jewelry was provided by Creations by Diane.   The Groom’s and Groomsmen’s Tuxedos were provided by Jos A Bank, and the entire Bridal Party looked sophisticated and stylish!

It was such a privilege and honor to work with a tremendous team of professionals and we look forward to working with all of these great teams again in the near future!  Thank you all for a great day of love, laughter and life!  Click here to see more pictures from the event, and of course please check out all the ShutterFun had by all in the ShutterYou Gallery!
