The EVOKE team is ecstatic about their recent design being featured on the cover of Washingtonian Bride and Groom. Jill Hudson Neal says “I’m also loving the “From Paris with Love” feature in this current issue. A few months ago, I hatched a plan. I’d call several of our area’s best wedding vendors and give them a project: to design a wedding reception table around an international city. In other words, give our readers an idea of what Paris, Moscow, Havana, or Beijing would “feel” like if a just-married couple took that busy metropolis as the inspiration for their reception. Super-planners Andre Wells, Pam Barefoot, Maria Cooke, Jodi Moraru, and their respective teams more than rose to the occasion on that shoot. Stunning all around!” The EVOKE team design derived from a Doctor Zhivago-inspired reception room. Partners that helped execute the entire project were EDGE Floral, Arney Walker Calligraphy, Fancy Cakes by Leslie, Occasions Catering, Wildflower Linen and Party Rental, Ltd.
