The One Moment Events is for clients who are unapologetically themselves. We love to incorporate each of our clients unique personalities, offbeat ideas and whimsical nature into a truly bespoke experience. There is no right or wrong way to plan an event as long as the event is truly, uniquely you.

The One Moment Events believes in equality and we would love to plan your big day no matter where you're from or who you love. We believe that honeymoon feeling should start as soon as you are engaged and we believe in not taking ourselves too seriously.

Our philosophy is that wedding planning is collaborative experience, ensuring every detail is intimate and personal. We want to know the ins and outs of your personalities, relationship and desires so our experts can create a luxury experience that is memorable from start to finish. From helping you select the perfect venue to matching you with creative partners to make your vision a reality. We are here to help you create a stunning day without lifting a finger.

The Clifton

soft, autumn vibes

A vibrant weekend full of earthy fall tones, live music and karaoke on the rear terrace, cozy textured linens and a packed dance floor in the cool October air. The bright bold orange tones were subdued amidst lots of lush greenery, warm wooden elements and soft lighting. Candlelight flickers. Love abounds.

soft, autumn vibes

Utilizing the bold, modern yet cozy design of The Clifton, we wanted to introduce fall elements in a soft and inviting way that melds the Mountainous estate venue with the Gujarati culture of the brides family. Leaning into an easy, relaxed color palette, textural linens, flickering candles and autumnal tones were the basis for our design.

Blue Hill Farm

Brilliant Mediterranean Shades

A vibrant summer ceremony on a bucolic farm in Waterford, Virginia melted into a bold midsummer evening celebration with fresh mediterranean food, an epic dance floor and unforgettable toasts that put even some of the best celebrity roasts to shame.

Brilliant Mediterranean Shades

Inspired by the terracotta rooftops of Jaffa where the bride had spent a summer, we leaned into mediterranean colors and uplifted it into a bold summer statement for a brilliant August day. A drink of cool blue like the reflection off of the sea balanced out the color palette to create the quintessential summer palette.

The Mount Washington Dye House

Moody jewels and modern black

The summer heat showed up in it's full intensity for Paige and Mihirs wedding. Guests kept cool within the historic facade of the brick dye house and indulged in crisp cocktails, a fabulous menu, followed by dancing and a custom floral bouquet takeaway stand as they departed into the evening.

Moody jewels & modern black

With a decidedly moody vibe set in a historic reclaimed dye house in north Baltimore, we leaned into the rich, dionysian intensity of a hot summer evening. Jewel tones abound, grounded by sumptuous fabrics and bold black accents that blend the rustic exposed brick with the modern day aesthetic magically.

Veritas Vineyard

Speakeasy under a starry night

We took a classic Virginia ballroom and turned it into a glowing celestial universe reminiscent of "Starry Night".  Flickering candlelight, cards against humanity for escort cards, Harry Potter wands and an un-apologetic boldness  capped the evening in fun, love and a whole lot of character.

Speakeasy under a starry night

A love of Doctor Who and all things fun and nerdy, transforming a classic ballroom space into a "Starry Night" by Van gogh. Cloches filled with oddities and  rich leather & bold velvet against wood grain like the couples favorite dc speakeasy.

Rachel and her team are truly amazing. My career keeps me busy and we were planning an out of town wedding. Rachel made this entire process so much easier! The TOME team has such a talent for design and beauty that all I told them was the type of vibe I wanted for our wedding and they brought it all to life. We had to re-plan the wedding three times due to interruptions from Covid-19 and the team was nothing short of positive, supportive, and encouraging from start to finish. I cannot recommend them enough. We love you, Rachel!

You've heard the story. Covid forces another couple to pivot from their original plans making everything that much more overwhelming. I was ready to pull my hair out. Our friends knew we needed a planner and gave a glowing review for TOME. They are incredibly organized, patient, and detailed. They made the planning process effortless! No question was too bizarre or silly and we never felt rushed or panicked about anything. When the big day finally arrived, everything ran absolutely flawlessly. Everyone needs a "Rachel" for their wedding!

Rachel is the Beyonce of Wedding Planning and her team goes above and beyond to make sure your wedding vision is brought to life. They don't miss a single beat and make sure that everything is perfect. You could not have convinced me that I wasn't Rachel's only client, I received that much time and attention while working with her. I felt like the most important person in the world. She was more than just a vendor, she becomes your friend. Nothing compares to the customer service and transparency your receive when you're in TOME's care. Hire TOME now. You won't regret it!

The One Moment Events is a DREAM wedding planning team! Hiring TOME was the BEST decision we made for our wedding. Our wedding was hands-down the best party of my life and it wouldn't have been possible without them. My husband and I will forever be grateful for their vision, guidance, support, patience, experience, talent, and the amazing, positive energy the exude - a necessity during the planning process. They work so hard for you. Do yourself a favor and have the peace of mind you deserve on your wedding and hire TOME. Highly recommend!
