McKenna and Alex were married on a sunny July 2015 day at the University of Virginia Chapel. The ceremony was a small and private affair for immediate family and close friends.
The florals were simple and elegant, with a color scheme of blues, creams, and greens. The beautiful bride carried a loose and round bouquet in shades of blue and a touch of cream. The bouquet was composed of garden roses, spray roses, delphinium, tweedia, and astrantia. It was tied with an ivory satin ribbon and pinned with pearls.
The reception was held at the Boar’s Head Inn. Arrangements of hydrangea, delphinium, and greenery were set in urns. The bouquets were repurposed into decor for the tables.
Florals in pinks, oranges, and autumnal tones complimented the gorgeous fall vista of the vineyard and the navy blue accents of the bridal party. We created two altar arrangements composed of hydrangeas, lilies, roses, berries, and ferns. Six hobnail vases of dahlias and roses were also hung from chairs as aisle markers.
The bride carried a fulsome bouquet of roses, spray roses, and dahlias in pinks, oranges and caramel colors. She added a personal and sentimental touch to her bouquet by including a special family photo.

Happy New Year to all! We are kicking off the year with a blog post featuring a stunning wedding photographed by the talented Alisandra Photography.Rebecca and Petar were married at the beautiful Early Mountain Vineyards in September 2015. The event was planned by A. Dominick Events.
The picturesque setting and mountains infused the wedding with a casual and romantic vibe. We complemented this theme with a seasonal color palette of cream, grey, lavender, and eggplant. Specifically, we used Antique Hydrangea, dahlias, garden roses, ranunculus, purple-throated calla lilies, astrantia, greens, and dusty miller to reflect the vineyard’s autumnal scenery.
The bride carried a fulsome, loose, and romantic bouquet. Cream and lavender flowers, including Antique Hydrangea, dahlias, and calla lilies, were tied together with a vintage satin ribbon and pinned with pearls.
For the ceremony, we created altar decor to fit the theme. Oak barrels were topped with arrangements of cream and green hydrangea, lavender roses, white dahlias, and cascading greenery. The warmth of the central fireplace was echoed along the aisle with glowing lanterns.
The reception took place in the Early Mountain Vineyards Event Hall as well. We continued the Southern charm motif of the wedding into the tablescapes, creating a rich and colorful background for the mason jar and honey sample favors.
Each table had a different mix of containers and flowers. Low, square, vintage wooden cubes and hobnail jars held loose and “picked from the garden” arrangements in lavender and cream. Round, wooden slabs were used as a base for arrangements on some tables. Vintage mercury votives were also scattered on tables for a finishing touch.
The long, rectangular head table had six cylindrical vases for the bridesmaid’s bouquets to be repurposed into table decor. A floral and garland runner of camellia leaf, seeded eucalyptus, and Antique Hydrangea was interwoven between the vases down the length of the table.
We were so pleased to be a part of this romantic and charming wedding. It was also featured on the Inspired By This blog. Check out the feature here.

On June 20, Dana and Kyle were married at the polished and elegant Old Metropolitan Hall, and their wedding was nothing short of those two descriptors. The wedding maintained a contemporary vibe, infused with many sophisticated elements.
The ceremony, held in the exquisite ballroom, was anchored by the venue’s unique, large paneled mirror and grand, white curtain. To enhance the altar’s romantic charm, we added garland to the edges of the curtain, and bouquets of white hydrangea.
The gorgeous bride carried a bouquet of white to reflect the setting. The bouquet featured a wide variety of blooms to add variety and texture. Garden roses, white nerines, “Majolica” spray roses, ranunculus, hydrangea, ivory sweet peas, champagne lisianthus, freesia, seeded eucalyptus, dusty miller, and veronica were tied together in a gold sequined cording, with ribbons cascading down from the stems.
The wedding incorporated pink and coral elements to the white base. The bridesmaid’s dresses and their bouquets contributed to this color palette. We also infused the reception ceremony with these hues. In the center of the long farm tables were garlands that weaved between hobnail glass jars filled with white roses, pink hypericum and spray roses, and dusty miller. Mercury glass votives added to the reception’s romantic atmosphere.
Thank you to Ashley Relvas Photography for these beautiful images. Please explore our gallery below for more moments from this gorgeous wedding.
Helen and Adam celebrated the first anniversary of their elopement last spring. They married in New Zealand, Adam’s homeland, without many of the traditional wedding staples. So, they took the opportunity to celebrate and document their union in Virginia, one year later.
For the shoot, we provided a unique statement piece for Helen. A floral necklace, composed of intertwining white and fuchsia blooms and ivy, gave the bride a memorable accessory for the celebration of her special day.

Harriet and Stephen were married on a beautiful May 2015 evening at Ash Lawn-Highland. The wedding’s inspiration was a simple, rustic elegance with a Scottish countryside feel. The diverse color palette of amethyst, lavender, teal, heather purple, yellow, blue, and green was inspired by the “Isle of Skye” kilt.
The groomsmen and groom wore the “Isle of Skye” kilts to honor the groom’s Scottish heritage. The boutonnieres reflected the color palette of the kilts, with blue thistle and green hypericum, tied with a thin sage velvet ribbon. The groom’s boutonniere (below) included the thistle, along with heather, tied together with an ivory ribbon.
The ceremony took place on the grounds of Ash Lawn-Highland, overlooking the mountains. The altar was marked by two large arrangements, including green hydrangea, thistle, heather, and other richly colored additions. Aisle markers of blue hydrangea, heather, and cream roses also added color to the ceremony.
The tartan made its way into the reception as well, draped across the chairs of the bride and groom. The reception flowers thus maintained the strong color palette and were complemented by the glow of mercury glass votives.
The bride’s bouquet was rustic and rich. A blue, green base of thistle, hydrangea, dusty miller, and camellia leaf added texture. “Majolica” spray roses, green roses, and heather provided additional color. For a more unique flair, we also added succulents.
