Kristen and Kevin

Kristen and Kevin’s wedding was a gorgeous occasion that was infused with a casual feel, but a sophisticated style. The lovely pair was married on October 10, 2015 at Verulam Farm. The location complemented and enhanced the theme of Southern elegance with a rustic charm. The wedding was planned by Verulam’s very talented Kennon Ibbeken and photographed by the exceptional William Walker Photography.

Kristen was the epitome of bridal elegance. She wore a champagne colored gown, and carried a unique and romantic bouquet of succulents, white freesia, ranunculus, hydrangea, and white garden roses. Seeded eucalyptus, rosemary, silver brunia berries, and privet berries added texture and volume. The bouquet was tied together with a cream satin ribbon and pinned with a line of seed pearls. The bride added a personal touch to her ensemble with colorful cowboy boots.

The ceremony was held in the field of Verulam, facing the mountains, with the backdrop of the main house. Our birch arch was used for the altar. Organically arranged magnolia leaf, hydrangea, and roses cascaded from the arch and framed the altar. Clear jars of blue, white, and green florals dangled from shepherd’s hooks along the aisle. The highlights of the ceremony were the adorable flower girls, wearing white dresses and cowboy boots. Of course, the pure happiness on the bride and groom’s faces could not be matched.

The Cider Barn on the property housed the reception. The florals were loose and elegant, with a “from the garden” feel. Birch and wood accents, along with lanterns and mason jars, completed the decor. The head table, a vintage farm table, was framed by a garland of greenery. Two low, rustic iron troughs were filled with moss and placed on the table. Votives were nestled in the moss running down the length of the trough, adding a romantic feel. Small floral arrangements in mixed, delicate, and vintage vases were placed on each table. The reception was catered by A Pimento, and the delicious cake was created by Cakes by Rachel.

McKenna and Alex

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.

Rebecca and Petar

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.20150926_rebecca_petar_0033Rebecca 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.

Antique Hydrangea, dahlias, cream roses, lavender roses, dusty miller, seeded eucalyptus, calla lilies with purple throats, ranunculus, astrantia, and silver brunea.

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.

Elopement Anniversary

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

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.

Mary Boyce and John

In late June, Mary Boyce and John celebrated their love for each other in Charlottesville. The ceremony took place at Christ Episcopal Church, and the reception at Farmington Country Club. The inspiration for the wedding was southern elegance, which the bride truly exuded.

The color scheme for the flowers was creams, whites, and greens, with a touch of blue to coordinate with the Bridesmaids’ dresses. The style for the bouquets was a loose, elegant “from the garden” feel. We also incorporated the brides favorite flowers: garden roses, peonies, and hydrangea.

20150627_DiehlHicks_wedding_0295-1

The bride’s bouquet was full and white, with hints of green and cream. It was composed of white peonies, white and cream garden roses, white hydrangea, dusty miller, white double lisianthus, and white spray roses with just a touch of greens and seeded eucalyptus. The stems were tied with a cream satin ribbon, bound with a line of seed pearls. For a personal touch, the bride added the lace from her mother’s bouquet.

Whitney and Hunter

In April, we had the pleasure of being a part of Whitney and Hunter’s wedding day. The day was a rainy one, but the weather could not dampen the spirits of this amazing wedding party and their families and friends in attendance.

Using the lovely backdrop of The Clifton Inn as inspiration, the wedding was infused with a sophisticated, elegant mix of florals with a soft, fulsome, and romantic feel. Colors of ivory and blush were chosen to set off the bridal party and the charm of the inn.

Poarch_0192_04252015_JK0114Poarch_0359_04252015_JK0236

The bride wore an ivory gown and carried a fulsome and compact bouquet of “Alabaster” and “Patience” David Austin garden roses, “Solange” and “Bowl of Cream” peonies, “Majolica” spray roses, blush ranunculus, cream lisianthus, umbrella fern,  and jasmine vine with a tinge of blush flowers. The bouquet was tied with an vintage, French silk ivory ribbon and pinned with a line of seed pearls.

The ceremony was defined by an arch created with cherry blossom branches extending from a bed of hydrangea, tulips, and elegant greenery. A mix of cut glass vases and containers of mixed shapes and sizes were used for the reception tables to create an effortless feel of a luxurious garden party. At each setting, there was a rolled galax leaf with lambs ear and a lavender stem tied together with jute twine.  A long garland weaved its way along the long central table.
