Happy Friday everyone! Hope everyone is planning a fun Memorial Day weekend celebration to kick off the un-official start of Summer. We have two FAB and fun weddings this weekend, so with no time to waste…the latest installment of FAB Finds!

Invitations We Love – Diana & Rob

Diana & Rob are getting married and we absolutely adore their invitations! Their rehearsal dinner invite is so fun and sets the perfect mood for a low-key, down-home BBQ, while the letterpressed wedding invite suite lets guests know that they’re in for quite the elegant party on the wedding day.

Places We Love – Hope & Glory Inn

In honor of Memorial Day, we wanted to highlight one of our absolute favorite getaways. If you’ve never been to the quaint little town of Irvington on Virginia’s Northern Neck, the exquisite Hope & Glory is the main reason to go. The inn, owned and lovingly run by Peggy & Dudley, is a old converted school house and is the perfect place when you’re in need of some relaxation. All of the rooms and cottages are simply chic, adorable and wonderfully unique – we’ve never seen another Inn or B&B like it. Their outdoor bath, under a massive canopy of leaves, is truly divine. Take one of the shiny, chrome bikes for a spin over to the Tides Inn for lunch on the water and if you stay on a Friday during the Summer, you’ll definitely want to reserve a space on their boat, Faded Glory, for a yummy, sunset all-you-can-eat crab cruise!

We’ve also been lucky enough to photograph a few weddings there over the years. Here are a few of our favorites…

People We Love – Petal’s Edge

We’ve gotta to know Gerry & Rebecca at the FAB Petal’s Edge over the years and are always excited to work with them. In fact, we are thrilled and honored when Rebecca commissioned us to photograph her intimate wedding ceremony with her husband Chris last year! The happy couple has just welcomed their first child into the world, a healthy boy, and we couldn’t be happier for them. If you’re looking for the perfect florist for your DC-area wedding, be sure to give Gerry & Rebecca a call!
