Have you worked there?
One of the first questions my couples often ask me is "have you worked there?"
While not totally necessary, I understand that there is a certain comfort level in knowing that your vendors are familiar with the space, procedures and on-site staff.
For me, the answer is a bit more complicated because in my over 12 years of designing in the DMV area I have worked for most hotels, mansions, and even historic residences (Hint . . . Hint . . .The White House, the Vice President's Residence, the Capitol and the State Department) but not all under my own company Atelier Ashley Flowers.
Here is a list of my favorite venues I have designed for and would love to design for again!
Private Family Estates
Don't see your venue? Just ask - chances are good that I have been there and it just slipped my mind.
