Love in Full Bloom: The Wedding of Elle Leonsis & Toby Helme - Washington Life MagazineTuesday, April 16, 2019
Greek evil eye emblem that symbolizes protection.Their engagement would merge two prominent families hailing from complementing industries: beer and sports. Toby, a consultant at Smith & Williamson, is a grandson to Bryan Walter Guinness, 2nd Baron Moyne, and an heir to part of the Guinness family’s brewing fortune. Leonsis, now general manager of SnagFilms, was born into Washington sports royalty. Her father Ted Leonsis is the founder and CEO of Monumental Sports, which owns the Washington Capitals, Washington Wizards, Washington Mystics and Capital One Arena.While their wedding embraced a woodlands theme, with colors of hydrangea, blue and green, and the fairest flowers “o’ th’ season” suspended throughout like Shakespearean verse, the event paid homage to their family legacies as well.Leonsis credits her mother, Lynn, with handling the planning in style and at her very own home, no less. Marwood, the 13-acre former Gore family estate that sits on a knoll above the Potomac River, was once rented by Joseph P. Kennedy Sr. and briefly served as Franklin and Eleanor Roosevelt’s summer home in the 1920s.“It surprised no one how immaculate the gardening and tent and little features all were,” says Leonsis, embracing her daughterly pride. “My mom is damn good at throwing a beautiful party!”One of the most magnificent elements that helped “crown” the evening was the multi-colored floral “cloud.” Inspired by London-based artist Rebecca Louise Law, Leonsis and Helme had their florist, Victoria Clausen, orchestrate and assemble the display suspended above the dance floor.And then, the dress. The day’s floral theme was inspired by the blue flowers on the bride’s custom Ramona Keveza ball gown. “The bold and beautiful pattern really made me feel like it was a work of art,” Leonsis says. “When I found a gown that was so striking and never worn before by a bride, I fell in love pretty quickly.”Toby’s groomsmen were dressed by Charles Tyrwhitt, the same company that has suited up the Washington Wizards and Washington Capitals; his ushers embodied the proud tradition of Highland dress, wearing trews (or kilts) and doublets with sporrans.Continuing with the familial nods, Helme’s father, Sir Tom Helme... http://washingtonlife.com/2019/04/05/love-in-full-bloom-the-wedding-of-elle-leonsis-toby-helme/

Be Local when preparing for prom - Uniontown Herald StandardTuesday, May 01, 2018
Christmas with March and April being the busiest time — especially for seamstresses who make alterations. Lovat said her shop, which also carries silk flowers, receives customers from as far away as West Virginia and Ohio.This year’s trends for prom include mermaid gowns with a fluffy bottom as well as a two-piece gown that includes a separated bodice and skirt.“Some like the plain but more like the bling,’’ said Lovat. “Then they get the accessories: shoes and jewelry. It all has to blend in.’’Popular jewelry pieces include rose gold and blue sapphire, Lovat said, while popular colors for gowns this year include black, gray, white and champagne.Regarding tuxedos, Ptak said, “Basic black is still used but many are going for fashionable colors in the blue family: navy, cobalt and indigo. Slim-fitting pants are almost a must for those who like and can wear it. Slim-fitting tuxedos are extremely popular. It’s the look you see on TV: a shorter coat and slim fit is very popular.’’Ptak said many youths want to coordinate with their date’s outfit but some want their own looks. Matching vests are as popular as colored vests.“What’s really popular are bow ties,’’ said Ptak, noting some even choose plaid and multi colors.He observed that where youths came in alone or with their dates in the past, today it becomes a family event with lots of photographs taken.Photographs are also popular at hair salons where many youths are experiencing their first formal hairstyle.“Braids are in at the moment,’’ said Morriston. “But it’s usually an updo where you curl and pin everything.’’Morriston said hairdressers can add glitter or a piece the youths bring in, such as a broach, to accessorize the young lady’s hair.Don’t wait too long to order flowers as Steve Neubauer, of Neubauer’s Flowers in Uniontown, noted many proms are taking place over Mother’s Day weekend, already a busy time for florists. Order early to find the best selection of flowers.When you do order, there’s a variety of choices.“Hand-tied nosegays are the most popular this year,’’ said Neubauer, “followed by wrist corsages and arm bouquets.’’As for colors, Neubauer said, “With technology, everybody has plenty of colors. The colors are as varied...
