Is it really August already, were has this summer gone?? We have been oh so busy and have lots of great weddings to share, starting with the wedding of Allison and Josh. It is always such an honor when someone’s parents choose you to coordinate their daughter’s wedding but the flattery that follows when they choose you to coordinate both of their daughter’s weddings is the ultimate compliment. Three years earlier we had the pleasure of working with Allison’s sister, Bethany, whose wedding had some similarities but like most sisters, they were very different.
Allison & Josh married at the beautiful St. James’ Episcopal Church in downtown Warrenton, Virginia. The weather couldn’t have been more perfect as guests walked towards the church to be greeted by the big red doors & the sound of hymns. The couple took the time to pray together (without seeing each other) before the wedding, it was such a sweet moment that they shared together and captured beautifully by their photographer, Michelle Lindsay.
After the ceremony guests made their way to Airlie for the cocktail hour and reception. Café lights hung over the walkway and the sound of the live band welcomed guests as they entered the pavilion. The flowers and decor were in fall tones of ivory and burgundy with gold accents. We enjoyed working with Wedding Muse to provide the flowers while Diamond Events provided the decor rentals and coordination, between our two mega inventories we were really able to bring Allison’s wedding vision to life. It was such a fun evening of dancing, sentimental toasts, surprise performances and not to forget the delicious desserts. Allison & Josh both love cheesecake and opted for a variety of them for guests to choose from, all of them incredibly delicious and not an easy decision to make, in fact all of the cakes made by Gateau are delicious!! To light the way back to their room, mini lanterns were displayed for guests to take home at the end of the night.
Congratulations to Allison & Josh!!
