Spring has officially sprung and I’m trying to figure out how I ever lived these past few months without sun and blooms. Time to ditch these coats and catch some rays ☀️.

One of the things a great wedding planner can’t do? Control the weather, although we really REALLY try. ⠀

Laura + Mike’s wedding day skirted the weather line all day, I don’t think I’ve ever paid closer attention to the weather on a wedding day than I did on their day. A big rain came through and stopped JUST in time for us to set their ceremony outside. The wedding and weather Gods were on their side.⠀

You’d never know we had any worries looking at this photo of their al fresco reception! Double tap if you wish we could control the weather! ⠀

#safeevents #saveevents Mayor Bowser Governor Larry Hogan Governor of Virginia Reopen Safely!! Events in Washington, DC ...

#safeevents #saveevents Mayor Bowser Governor Larry Hogan Governor of Virginia

Reopen Safely!!

Events in Washington, DC bring in over $1 billion in estimated tax revenue annually to the city.

Currently, DC is actively losing events to Virginia, Maryland, and other states.

Events need more time to plan: i.e. if the permissible capacity of restaurants changed tomorrow, establishments would be able to handle and manage changes easier than the events community. Events need more runway to plan.

Increased capacity at venues is the starting point to get the whole industry back to work.

The DC event industry is READY and WILLING to do whatever we have to move on to the next steps.

🚨How to do this safely🚨

☑️The events industry is prepared to re-open while following all COVID-19 compliance guidelines from the city.

☑️Most venues, planning/producing companies, and catering companies have a COVID compliance officer on staff.

☑️Venues have made adaptations of their facilities to accommodate reopening guidelines.

☑️All vendors have adapted to accommodate COVID-19 compliance guidelines.

☑️The events industry is inherently creative and will introduce event adaptations to fit the new guidelines.
