Last night I had the privilege to attend the Washingtonian Inaugural Ball held at the Smithsonian Air & Space Museum. It was an amazing night with more than 850 guests in attendance. It was great to hang out with fellow wedding professional and great friend Steve from the Edge Floral! As well as to see other wedding industry friends there to provide their services, including Potomac Point Winery, Ridgewells Catering, Rodney Bailey Photography, John Farr Lighting, and more! The delicious dinner included passed hors d’oeuvres, plentiful food stations, and delicious desserts! The night was complete with a full open bar and a fun and lively atmosphere with live music and a lot of dancing.
Huge thanks to Eleni, Rebecca and Katherine from Washingtonian for such a phenomenal event! Washingtonian online has a recap of tweets and photos from the night, here are a few of the fun pictures.

The Ronald Reagan Building’s annual Sparkle Lounge is the perfect opportunity to catch up with wedding industry friends and network with event professionals around the DC region. The event was truly amazing and we were honored to have Chris Laich Music Services provide the music again this year!
The Ronald Reagan’s Atrium Ballroom, which is already a spectacular space, “wowed” guests with the incredible decor, food, champagne and of course great soundtrack! Approximately 1,000 people attended this year. It was great to see people mingling throughout the space.
DC Photographer, Stephen Bobb was there and captured the night with some incredible images. Flowers and decor provided by by Elegance & Simplicty.

We were really proud when Chris Laich Music Services was asked to participate in the first annual DC Purses with Power charity event to benefit the Arthritis Foundation. The event took place on November 8, 2012 at the modern Haworth Showroom at Terrell Place (Penn Quarter, DC). The night featured a silent auction, led by host Omarosa Manigault. Omarosa did a fantastic job encouraging attendees to purchase auction items, which included designer purses, jewelry, and a special makeover sponsored by Paul Wharton from WDCW DC50tv.
Chris Laich Music Services joined host Omarosa, and several leading companies within the DC event and style scene to help make the night a success!
