We have made our way through January and celebrated both the new year and Lunar new year officially as of Feb 1! This year of the water tiger is full of bravery and courage, creativity and manifesting good into our lives and we are here for it!
We have had much going on (it is a wedding boom, you know!) but we did want to take a quick moment to sit down and catch up with all of you! From my travels to Italy to Gene & Georgetti and everything in between, I have felt really good about 2022 so far and I hope that you are too.
Read all about that boom I mentioned, and see what we’ve been up to here at MDE as well. And remember if you have a celebration to bring to life, reach out and let’s chat!
What Is A Wedding Boom?
After a year of postponed + downsized weddings and events, the wedding industry is now seeing a surge of couples looking to plan in 2022 and 2023 like we have not seen in quite some time. I believe since the mid-1980’s in fact!

Enchanted Tented Vow Renewal
Black chairs with a golden trim were tucked beneath tables surrounding the elevated aisle. Blue and purple textured glassware at each place setting emphasized the black candlesticks upon pink table runners in the center of each table.
