If you were looking for me in the middle of a teenage funk, it was a pretty good bet that I could be found sulking in Old Town, Alexandria. I took a series of drawing classes at the Torpedo Factory at the age of 15 and adopted the area as my personal reflective space, somewhere I could go take my tormented soul to enjoy an ice cream cone from Ben and Jerry’s anonymously while staring out at the water. When Erica told me that she and Mark were planning a wedding reception in the Torpedo Factory I was intrigued, remembering the concrete floors, cat walks and pleasant “art” smells created by paints and thinners as I wondered how the space would translate. It translated awesome…what a great spot for a funky, modern reception! The ground floor was professionally lit and transformed into a wonderland of silver tablescapes to complement the blue hues that followed us through the day from the flowers to the pier lights.
Victoria of Perfect Detail Event Planning made sure that everything was in place and was fantastic to work with. Guests enjoyed cocktails in a tent off the back of the main building facing the pier as the sun set before they were invited inside to dance beneath disco lights and lanterns. Erica looked a-mazing, we knew that she and Mark were going to be a lot of fun to work with from their engagement shoot last fall. It was great to see the Wilberger and Clifton families again and we’re thrilled to add the Howells to this group of crazy, fun clients that we have had the privilege of working for over the past few years. We really do love you guys…
