The Insider Wedding Report- Volume 3

New DC Wedding Venue District Winery to open this summer:

DC's new Wedding Venue, District Winery, boasts a stunning modern waterfront location with industrial ceilings, large windows and an ideal balcony for ceremonies. We couldn't be more excited about this new venue as there are endless possibilities for creative photos. Dark wood accents the exterior of the building, which is a perfect neutral color for plenty of portraits. Windows on all sides let in plenty of natural light, and stunning sunset views. Bonus: they make wine! Check out some recent photos we took while the building is still under construction, and a few renderings of the interior.

Capacity: 200 for a seated dinner, 350 standing reception both indoor and outdoor balcony.

Here are some sketches of the interior:

Beauty Spotlight: Carola Myers Makeup and Hair Artists shares one of her favorite beauty products.


For my bridal clients I am always looking to create a makeup look that is timeless, flawless, and natural. Every client is going to have their own preferences when it comes to their defining features, such as lip color, blush tones, or eye color shades – but one product that I love to use across the board, regardless of each bride’s personal styles is a Translucent Loose Setting Powder by Laura Mercier

After finishing the overall makeup look, this powder brings the entire design together, creating a flawless finish and cosmetic continuity. With a velour puff I lightly apply the powder to the sides of cheeks, center of forehead, T-Zone, and the tip of chin and then gently blend around these features. It wears very comfortably, really sharpens the look for your photographers to capture, and instinctively captures everyone’s eye on the big day. It is that final touch that transforms a great makeup design into a luxurious service and unforgettable look.
