Sarah and Dave | Glasz Productions | Darlington House

We were really feeling the love as Sarah Lovin turned into SarahEberlin on June 6, 2015.  Dave and Sarah exchanged their vows at one of our favorite spots, the Darlington House, where they continued to celebrate and danced the night away. Love was truly in the air that day as our bride and groom radiated with happiness throughout the entire night. It was wonderful to be a part of this adorable couple’s big day.  Thank you to Glasz Productions for the beautiful pictures. Good luck to the new Eberlins!

Brittany and Callan got married at the Darlington House on May 5th, 2015. Thank you to ABM Photography for sending over these beautiful pictures. It was such a beautiful day to match an equally as beautiful bride, to go along with her handsome groom. These two love birds could not stop smiling, and it was plain to see the love they have for each other.   The McLaughlins are two of the sweetest people we know and it was such a joy to be a part of their wedding. We are sure there are great things in store for these newly weds, and we wish them a world of love and happiness!

4 Wedding Trends that are Here to Stay

The wedding business, like any business creates its own trends and fads. Some come and go, and some make a lasting impression.  Below are 4 wedding trends that we love, and with ever-growing popularity, are here to stay!

#1. Signature Drinks

I know we have mentioned these before, but we really do love the signature drink.  It is a great way to add a personal touch to your event in a way that guests appreciate and are excited about. You can do a single drink that represents your newly married status, or two drinks that draw from each of your personalities.  For example if the bride has a bubbly personality, try mixing her favorite juice with champagne and top it off with her favorite fruit.  For a more masculine drink for the groom try his favorite whisky or liquor and top it with a simple fruit, such as a lime. Keep in mind your signature does not have contain alcohol.  It could just be a refreshing delicious drink. Whatever you decide, be creative and choose fun names that really show off your personalities.

#2. Family Style Receptions

Lately we have been seeing more and more requests for family style receptions; and we think it’s great! This is more of a classic wedding style that has been re-introduced, where food is placed on the table and your guests help themselves and each other to the delicious entrees you have provided. This promotes a warm and friendly atmosphere amongst your guests. To create more of a “family” feel your guests can be seated across from each other at long banquet tables or at intimate round tables.




#3. Bird Cage Veils

With the growing popularity of outdoor weddings, long cathedral veils don’t seem to be practical (even though we do love cathedral veils!). The birdcage veil is just enough to add a little something special to your look, instantly adding a touch of elegance, sophistication, and vintage glamour to your look. If you aren’t a fan of the birdcage try a beaded or flowery headband.

#4. Midnight Snacks

In the hustle and bustle of the wedding and dancing your guests may build up an appetite.  What better way to satisfy this than a delicious midnight snack at the end of the night?  A midnight snack station could consist of pizza, sliders, donuts, or really any type of comfort food for your guests to revive them after a long night of dancing and maybe some cocktails. This is also a great way to send your guests home with love in their hearts and food in their bellies.
