When a member of the wedding community becomes engaged, they’re faced with every soon-to-be-wed couple’s most daunting task – selecting vendors. But when your company is the resource for wedding planning, choosing the best becomes a special challenge. It’s almost what the judges on Top Chef contend with – experts deciding from among a pool of great professionals who is more excellent than the rest.

So, when one of the owners of Wedding Wire, Lee, and his fiancé, Lynn, contacted Chris Laich Music Services, we were thrilled, honored and excited. We love working at the Ronald Regan Building (especially fun weddings), and, most importantly, it meant a lot that we’d be providing Lynn and Lee’s wedding day soundtrack.

As expected, Lynn and Lee’s celebration was a beautiful blast. Their happiness that day was totally infectious, and their team of DC’s finest wedding pros did a superlative job creating the special, personal event Lynn and Lee imagined.

To see what we mean, check out this terrific wedding day video by the amazing crew at Thomas Bowen Films!

Washingtonian Bride & Groom did it again! Unveiled 2012 was a lot of fun, full of creativity, and a huge success.

Held at the Mandarin Oriental, this year’s event featured a Reem Acra bridal fashion show (Reem Acra herself even made an appearance!), and, of course, the cream of DC’s wedding industry crop.

The staff of Bride & Groom had their hands full planning Unveiled 2012. Organizing food, drink, panel discussions, vendor booths, the runway show and more is no small task, but Rebecca Schwartz and her team did an extraordinary job.

We had a blast chatting with all the brides, grooms and their families who stopped by, as well as our wedding industry friends!

The 2012 Grammys will go down in history as a night of great performances, and as the day after music lost one of its great voices.

When her first album, Whitney Houston, came out, the music and her incredible voice became an automatic hit. MTV constantly played “How Will I Know” while any one of her debut tracks was a constant fixture on the radio. After that, the hits kept coming, and almost overnight, Whitney Houston was one of the world’s iconic singers.

But that first album holds a special place in our hearts. It’s been part of Chris’s playlist since 1990 when he began deejaying! So, like everyone else, it was a shock to learn of the great vocalist’s passing the night before the Grammys.

Recent troubles aside, Whitney Houston was a person whose talent shone brightly and who had an incredible musical career that transcended the music industry. She will definitely be missed.
