Morais Vineyard & Winery Wedding

Sometimes when it is 30 degrees outside the best thing to do is “think spring” right?!  Browsing through images of the weddings that we have done and I came across this oh so colorful orange and green wedding with tropical touches at Morais Vineyards & Winery in Bealton, Virginia.  The ceremony took place outdoors with the pergola, which was decorated with strands of crystals and orange Mokara orchids.  The ballroom looked stunning with orange crush linens that had an iridescent shine and provided just the right contrast to the the arrangements which were mostly green flowers with pops or orange.  Last but least, the gorgeous cake!  The flowers used included dahlias, Mokara orchids, spray roses, hydrangea, tick dianthus, hypericum berries and amaranthus.

Elizabeth & Julio

Elizabeth and Julio married at St. Andrews Catholic Church in Roanoke, Virginia in October of 2010. Elizabeth had a very specific vision for her wedding incorporating bold tones of eggplant, burnt orange and pops of green which all came together marvelously. The reception was held at the Sheraton Hotel & Conference Center, the style and tones of the hotel were a great addition to the wedding décor. The tables were set with burnt orange pintuck linens and tall, colorful centerpieces. The menu cards designed by Diamond Events were tucked into a square napkin folded flat at each place setting. To top off the fall theme, the soup was served in a hollowed pumpkin. The guests were entertained by three different ensembles throughout the night, a Mariachi band that serenaded guests during cocktail hour and dinner, a hot salsa band that made their way from Washington D.C. to get everyone dancing and a DJ to make sure that no one went home early! And the remarkable coordinator that pulled this all of, our very own Morgan Leonard, who did a fabulous job!

Elizabeth & Steven

Both Elizabeth and Steven grew up and attend Blacksburg High School and Virginia Tech together so chosing to host their wedding in their hometown didn’t take much considerataion. The day started early at the salon to be ready in time for the 11:00am ceremony at St. Mary’s Catholic Church. After the ceremony guests made there way to the Virginia Tech German Club while the couple went around campus taking pictures with photographer Laura of Laura’s Focus Photography. The deejay and mc of the reception was the wonderful Roy Prusak of RSP Entertainment. Floral decor was provided by Best Wishes and attached to the brides bouquet was a small horseshoe that represents good luck in English tradition. A combination of great frieinds, great music and a wonderful reason to celebrate resulted in an afternoon of fun and a packed dance floor. You can view more pictures from the wedding on the Laura’s Focus Photography blog.
