Why do you want to work with APW Couples?
APW couples are hip, they want to connect with a vendor that they actually vibe with, and they think outside the box! We love that -- weddings can be so formulaic and meeting a couple who have imagination is amazing, exciting, and allows us to flex our creative muscles! Why WOULDN'T we want to work with APW couples is the better question?!
Describe your artistic approach to weddings?
We always say the best weddings are the ones where you can feel the personality of the couple coming through in various ways. Getting to know you, your likes/dislikes, and what you dream about when you think of your wedding is what drives us. Feeling like you're forming a friendship with us rather than a business relationship is our ultimate goal.

One review on “City Celebrations”
Bridgitte and Edy made planning a DC wedding from NYC doable and dare I say it, easy! We already had a few vendors picked out when we started working with City Celebrations but they helped us find locations for welcome drinks and brunch, hair and makeup artists, childcare, and did our florals. Bridgitte managed our relationships with all vendors, whether she helped us find them or not, which was a huge help, as I could only come down to DC about every 4-6 weeks for wedding tasks. On the day of, everything went super smoothly and looked great, thanks to all their careful planning and seriously detailed timelines. Multiple people at my reception told me that they thought Bridgitte and Edy were awesome and I couldn't agree more!
