Congratulations, Kari and Derek!

This Saturday, we had our first wedding in charming Alexandria, Virginia. Kari and Derek were married at Aldersgate Methodist Church with a super modern and elegant reception to follow at Hotel Monaco (love those Kimpton hotels!). Kari and Derek chose our Round Rock as the inspiration for their invitation suite and day-of wedding stationery, and we carried elements of the design throughout their invitations, programs, table numbers, menu cards, and seating chart. We customized the colors to reflect their color palette of red and grey, and designed a new monogram. Congratulations, Mr. and Mrs. Sorensen! We loved working with you!

Introducing... The Rockville

Now that the 2011 wedding invitation season is well underway, it has been fun witnessing the evolution of this year's trends. At the top of our list? Grey as the new neutral. We've previously paired it with red, pale blue, and cream, but this bright and sunny yellow is our new favorite. So, without further ado, we present our newest design, the Rockville. Preppy pinstripes, fun florals, and lots of thoughtful and unexpected details- what's not to love? To learn more about the Rockville, click here.

A Breath of Fresh Air, Michelle Lindsay Style

Yesterday's sunny weather and warm temps gave us our first brief taste of spring, and today we make that feeling last just a bit longer with the breath of fresh air that is Michelle Lindsay Photography. Here at LilyPad, we have been huge fans of Michelle's artistic and editorial style for a long time, so you can imagine our delight when we decided to give our website a facelift with some new images and Michelle was available for the project. We were thrilled the results and couldn't wait to share some of our favorite photos with you! Michelle's work has been featured in Washingtonian Bride & Groom, The Knot, Brides Washington DC, and Get Married, as well as on one of our favorite local wedding blogs, United with Love. She was also recently selected by the Professional Photographers of America (PPA) as one of the top 10 up and coming studios in the U.S!

Her fresh, modern, and vibrant photos speak for themselves, and on top of that, she is one of the most humble and laid-back people we've met.

Thank you, Michelle!
